Did you know?

When you're one of the herd, it's tough to avoid being social. The origin of gregarious is from  the Latin noun grex, meaning "herd" or "flock." When it first began appearing in English texts in the 17th century, gregarious was applied mainly to animals, but by the 18th century it was being used for social human beings as well.
