A study in flavorology directed by the neurologist Dr. Alan R. Hirsch, director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, sponsored by Dreyer's and Eddy's Grand Ice Cream (no surprise), says your favorite ice cream flavor can say a lot about you. Dr. Hirsch was surprised to find out that "distinct personalities corresponded with ice cream flavors." What's your flavor?
Vanilla - You are colorful, impulsive, a risk taker who sets high goals and do whatever it takes to meet them. You have high expectations of yourself. You're a saucy adventuress/adventurer who relies on your gut instinct, live a hectic life, easily suggestible, expressive, idealistic; a private person. People are drawn to your friendly, out-going personality, and you have particularly strong relationships with your family.
Chocolate - You are lively, creative, dramatic, charming, enthusiastic and the life of the party. You are seductive, well-dressed, extroverted, easily influenced, a follower, intuitive, who enjoys intimate relationships. You could charm the birds from the trees, and your enthusiasm and creativity add to your allure. You're usually the center of attention in social situations and you bask in the spotlight and can become bored with the usual routine. You believe love is all about passion and excitement.
Butter Pecan - You are orderly, perfectionist, careful, detail-oriented, conscientious, ethical and fiscally conservative. You are also competitive, aggressive in sports and the take-charge type of personality. At work, you're known for being detail-oriented, loyal and conscientious. You carry these same traits into your personal relationships, and you're especially compassionate towards others.
Strawberry - You are shy, yet emotionally robust, skeptical, detail-oriented, opinionated, introverted and self critical. Easily made to feel guilty; cranky, pessimistic, low self-esteem. You can be quite shy at times, but you also have a steely backbone and have no problem making your opinions known. Your tendency towards perfection can be irritating, although it makes you a star with your boss.
Chocolate chip - You are generous, competitive and accomplished. You are charming in social situations, ambitious and competent. A visionary, a conqueror, who enjoys being catered to, intolerant of defeat. You're a go-getter with a staggering number of accomplishments under your belt. But you never blow your own horn, preferring to count your blessings. Your captivating personality makes you a natural leader among your peers.
Banana - You are easy going, well adjusted, generous, honest and empathetic. You're incredibly generous of heart and a great listener. That's why you are often the one others turn to for solace and advice. You also have an easygoing attitude and manage to juggle all of your duties with calm assurance.
