People who like mint chocolate chip are often more "argumentative, frugal and cautious."  But regular chocolate chip eaters tend to be "generous, competent and a go getter," and those who choose chocolate chip cookie dough are often "ambitious, competitive, and a visionary."  Pralines 'n cream apparently appeals to the shier types, who are usually "loving, supportive and prefer to avoid the spotlight." 

Introverts lean toward strawberry and rainbow sherbet doesn't reflect a bright disposition, but is the flavor of choice for those "more likely to be analytic, decisive, and a pessimistic."

And if your favorite flavor is rocky road, you’re more likely to be aggressive, engaging and a good listener. This is all ahead of National Ice Cream Day, which is Sunday, July 21.
