what your ice cream preference tells about your character

just found this on a regional TV station's website and couldn't resist sharing it:

1) chocolate: passionate
Chocolate lovers enjoy not only their ice cream but love as well. They are not only passionate but also considerate and caring.

2) vanilla: romantic
The vanilla fan is always on the search for the one great true love. At the same time he/she isn't very fond of experiments.

3) lemon: not sour at all
If you like lemon ice cream you have a fiery nature that requires an equal partner. Yet the lemon fan is afraid of commitments.

4) strawberry: snuggly
'Life is great' is the typical strawberry ice cream lover's credo for usually he/she is in a good mood and loves company. He/she is an extremely snuggly lover.

5) walnut: lovingly
Nut-fans are family people with a lot of soul and depth. They are especially lovingly but not as temperamental as others.

6) coffee: practical
Cappuccino, Mokka, Espresso - people who like coffee ice cream are extremely practical and very reasonable. Thinking ahead, making plans and having ideas are some of their favourite occupations. In addition, they are very convincing. In love, the coffee-fan is more interested in intellectual bonding than in physical love.

7) cherry: charming
Cherry ice cream stands for responsibility. But the cherry fan is also extremely charming. However, as far as relationships and love are concerned, the cherry-type is rather reserved.

8) stracciatella: especially faithful
He/she who eats Stracciatella ice cream usually has difficulties to make up his/her mind. But once a Straciatella fan made his/her choice, there is no looking back - that goes for love matters as well: faithfullness is especially important and there is never even a hint of boredom.

From wikipedia:

"gelato with a vanilla base and chocolate shavings is also called stracciatella. It is somewhat analogous to chocolate chip ice cream in North America though the chocolate is intended to be less chunky and more integrated with the gelato."

I suppose if you like Neopolitan or Spumoni, you have a personality disorder as they involve very different flavors side-by-side.

Re: what your ice cream preference tells about your character

I worked my way through university at an ice cream shop, and I swear to god, you could racially profile people's ice cream preferences. It sounds like bollocks, but at one point my friends and I even did a statistical analysis and found a statistically significant difference in ice cream preference depending on race. We tested our hypotheses that:
-White men most often order milkshakes
-White women most often order vanilla frozen yogurt (usually with chocolate sprinkles)
-East Asian men most often order Chunky Monkey
-East Asian women most often order strawberry
-Black people (male and female) most often order Rum Raisin
-Upon learning that Ben and Jerry's doesn't make Rum Raisin Black people will most often order Butter Pecan or vanilla

While the experiment was obviously not done under laboratory conditions and was clearly not blind, and while the evidence may have been weakened by the fact that all subjects were either residents of or tourists to the East Village neighborhood of NYC (which could account for the development of preferences somehow), I think we did a fairly good experiment. We recorded the orders of all customers over a week in spring, with a p value of about 2000 (if I am remembering correctly, and admittedly not accounting for repeat customers). The only group that failed to show statistically significant results in favor of our hypothesis was White women ordering vanilla frozen yogurt. My guess is that our observation was biased by the annoying-ness of sorority girls asking how many calories were in a cup of "vanilla fro-yo."

Anyway, I think it is safe to conclude that working in an ice-cream shop isn't very intellectually stimulating.

Re: what your ice cream preference tells about your character

^Which is a good example of how it sometimes is necessary to create your very own intellectual stimuli in the workplace

Are those the only possibilities Rhubarbodendron? -I'm a sucker for licorice and raspberry ice-creams... either together or by their own those two flavours seem to have some sort of almost magical power over me

Re: what your ice cream preference tells about your character

Well I'm strawberry, so I'm apparently "snuggly". The word puts me in mind of some sort of shuffling hedgerow animal, possibly a hedgehog, so I'm not sure you want a "snuggly lover". It sounds like I'll be sniffing around the bedsheets in search of pleasing scents.

The sad thing is that this is actually more reasonable than astrology.

How is that 'sad'? -Their libraries, their music, the stuff in their shopping-carts and their tastes for ice-cream are all choices people make. Of course it'll tell something about what kind of person makes the choice.

Um...I think you misunderstood the point I was making. I'm saying it is sad that so many people fall for something as ridiculous as astrology while (probably sensibly) dismissing something like this offhand when, as silly as it seems, the hypothesis that our preferences in ice cream flavor is somehow correlated to our dispositions as lovers is more rationally sound.

Re: what your ice cream preference tells about your character

I eat lots of different flavors of ice cream. There's no pattern to it. So I'm not sure if my eating habits could predict anything about me.

But as far as those descriptions go, looks like 'vanilla' describes how I act.

Re: what your ice cream preference tells about your character

My flavour of ice cream choice can alter depending on my mood. But perhaps that means I am multifaced and can adapt to situations. :P

I view this kind of stuff as midly interesting, but not to be taken seriously.
