    Hi,

    Please check these sentences, are they right and what will be the correct form?

    You are very interactive or You have an interactive personality.

    Thanks

    I lead hand to mouth existance.
    You need an article:

    I lead a hand-to-mouth existence.

    Also, many people would just say "I live hand-to-mouth (or hand to mouth)."

    Personally, I don't recall ever hearing a single person described as being interactive. The word interactive typically describes a machine, a computer program, a computer game, etc. It suggests that there are many opportunities for direct communication between the user and the machine, program, game, etc. It might also describe a group of people, meaning that there is a lot of communication within the group.

    I suppose you could say either "You are very interactive" or "You have an interactive personality," but it still strikes me as slightly odd. Maybe it's just me. Others might have a different take on this one.

    I've never seen "interactive" applied to a person either.

    Interactive is an adjective, thus it could be used as mentioned above. I think so.

    Yes, interactive is an adjective and perhaps it could be applied to a person but I have never seen it. Adjectives are not always appropriate in all situations.

    It seems it is applied to people too.

    For June 27, 2009, CBS, CBS_Early, 2009 (090627).
    There are things that you can look at his behavior. ERICA-HILL: What are-- what are those-- what are those signs? Give me your top three signs of a serial cheater? AMY-LAURENT: Top three signs of a serial tre-- cheater, youre in a social situation and he treats you different. He s not as attentive, does nt put his arm around you. He s not looking into your eyes when youre talking. He s shifting to every interactive person that is walking by. AMY-LAURENT: Actions speak louder than words

    If individuals can not know everything as individuals, then sophisticated teams of interactive people can certainly seek to do so. For instance, a small networked and interdisciplinary university can have both focus and multidisciplinary participation

    "Heeeeeeeeee shoots and scores!"

    Interesting example.

    (Note, however, that your second example does refer to groups of people.)
