A recent study says you can tell a lot about a person just by finding out their favorite flavor of ice cream.

Baskin-Robbins recently partnered with a nationally-recognized smell and taste expert to identify what personality traits are common to people who like certain ice cream flavors.

“We uncovered quite a few surprising findings when investigating what a person’s favorite ice cream flavor says about their personality,” said Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation founder, Dr. Alan Hirsch.

The study results say vanilla lovers are more likely to be impulsive, easily suggestible and idealistic.  Chocolate lovers are more likely to be dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive and gullible.

Here are more results from the study:

  • 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.
