I would say every section has its own personality and style, but would add that I've never seen a boring cello section full of fuddy duddys anywhere.
Being in a section for a long time is a bit like being part of a family. You get to know each other very well, the good qualities and the bad. You have to learn to work together and perform well together, sometimes in stressful or difficult situations. Playing in a section that has a sense of humor really helps when the going gets tough.
