'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.'

If your favorite flavor is Vanilla, you’re more likely to be impulsive and an idealist.

Chocoholics are dramatic and flirtatious, while Rocky Road lovers are good listeners

Praline ‘n Cream fans are loving and supportive.

'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,' said Dan Wheeler, from the ice cream chain.

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.

He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by a full 90 percent of the nation's population.
