iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Did you ever wonder what your favorite ice cream flavor says about your personality?  Probably not, but Dr. Alan Hirsch, the founder of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation has. 

In celebration of July being National Ice Cream Month, Baskin-Robbins enlisted Dr. Hirsch to identify what select Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavors say about a person.

Here are Dr. Hirsch’s findings:

  • If your favorite flavor is Vanilla, you’re more likely to be impulsive, easily suggestible and an idealist.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate, you’re more likely to be dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive and gullible.
  • If your favorite flavor is, Very Berry Strawberry, you’re more likely to be a tolerant, devoted and an introvert.
  • If your favorite flavor is Mint Chocolate Chip, you’re more likely to be argumentative, frugal and cautious.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, you’re more likely to be ambitious, competitive and a visionary.
  • If your favorite flavor is Pralines ‘n Cream, you’re more likely to be loving, supportive and prefer to avoid the spotlight.
  • If your favorite flavor is Jamoca (i.e. coffee), you’re more likely to be scrupulous, conscientious and a moral perfectionist.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate Chip, you’re more likely to be generous, competent and a go getter.
  • If your favorite flavor is Rainbow Sherbet, you’re more likely to be analytic, decisive and a pessimistic.
  • If your favorite flavor is Rocky Road, you’re more likely to be aggressive, engaging and a good listener.

Dr. Hirsch’s findings are the result of a survey conducted with an unidentified number of adults, aged 18-65, using the following standardized comprehensive psychiatric and personality tests: the Million Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-III, Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2, Beck Depression Inventory and Zung Anxiety and Zung Depression test batteries.
