Playing mostly alone or alone in an MMO is no different than being a loner in the real world. Loner types do not live in the middle of nowhere but instead with everyone else. They limit their encounters with others yet still part of the existing world. (In game and real life) They are the traders/smugglers, bounty hunters, researchers, farmers, or anything else that needs little to no supervision. You get all forms of personalities in an MMO so i have never understood such posts as this or the amount of energy people put into them. But trying to explain the reasoning to others that do not have the capability to grasp such a personality is really the challenge. How person X loves salt but hates sugar and person Y hates salt but loves sugar. If you can see where I'm going with this then maybe you can understand that even in a candy shop there's still options for the salt lover too.
