"Type A individuals can be described as impatient, excessively time-conscious, insecure about their status, highly competitive, hostile and aggressive, and incapable of relaxation."
Wow is full of different types of people, but a TON of type A personalities are drawn to the game. In fact, I would guess over 50% of wows population is full of Type A wanta be over achievers at something types. More than likely your going to run into a few who think they know more than you and everyone else. The classic mantra of the type A is "actually..." and it pains to me to say that word. With some slight research on the subject the type A personality will crumble before you while backing into a corner of other "facts...".
Another place you will find these type A personalities is forums. These places are full of them. There is even a personality type above A that lurks here. The troll. The number one goal of the troll is to first identify someone else as the troll. Then spout miss information until the forum is in a uproar. Some people say "Don't fead the troll" But I say " Challenge the Troll until they give up."
On sites, like wow.com, I put good information out there that may challenge PUG raid leader, type A, loot practices that benefit them. This brings out the troll, now it's time to battle them back into their cave with troll kryptonite, facts. Try as the troll may, facts can not be overcome with hearsay and personal experiences.
Try is sometime it really helps sharpen your argument skills.
