LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Ice cream chain Baskin-Robbins recently conducted a study to help customers to make an educated choice in order to celebrate "National Ice Cream Month."

The founder of Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, Dr. Alan Hirsh has been identifying exactly what some ice cream flavors may suggest about individuals personalities. "We uncovered quite a few surprising finds," Hirsch said.

"For instance, we found that people who prefer Rainbow Sherbet are more pessimistic than you would think, in spite of the flavor's bright taste profile, and that those who prefer Rocky Road are actually very good listeners," he says.
 
For example, while vanilla is thought to be the default flavor for those who are passive, those who prefer it is more likely to be impulsive and an idealist. Those who like Praline 'n' Cream are found to be loving and supportive.

You shouldn't say anything bad about Mint Chocolate Chip to those fans, as they tend to be argumentative.

"National Ice Cream Month is the perfect time to enjoy your favorite ice cream flavor, and this year we wanted our guests to have fun by learning what their favorite flavor says about them," Dan Wheeler, from the ice cream chain says.

President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day in 1984. The former president recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90 percent of the American population.

President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

National Ice Cream Day this year is on Sunday, July 21.

So what does your favorite ice cream flavor reveal about your personality?

Chocolate lovers are dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive and gullible. Those who choose vanilla have been found to be impulsive, easily suggestible and idealistic.

If you tend to Very Berry Strawberry, you're a tolerant, devoted and somewhat introverted. Mint Chocolate Chip devotees are argumentative, frugal and cautious.

Rocky Road fans were found to be aggressive, engaging and good listeners. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough fans are ambitious, competitive and visionary. If you like, Jamoca, you tend to be scrupulous, conscientious and a moral perfectionist. Rainbow Sherbet lovers are analytic, decisive and a tad pessimistic.
