What Your Favorite Sandwich Says About You

Whether it's lunch or a midnight snack.  At home or in a restaurant.  Now and then or daily.  We all have our favorite sandwich.  It might be something simple from childhood that we turned into a more adult offering, or maybe something exotic.

But do you know what your choice of sandwich…your favorite…says about you and your character?  Put your horoscope and astrological signs aside and pay attention to your sandwich. :)

I recently came across a list of 10 popular sandwiches and what they say about those who consider that specific sandwich their favorite.  Now, this list only mentions the main ingredient and does not take into consideration how you dress up and customize that sandwich—specialty bread or roll, exotic cheeses, various spreads, other touches such as lettuce and/or tomato, etc.

If this is your first choice on the menu, you like to play it safe in life.  You like to know what to expect.  You're not interested in the latest fad.  All things classic make you smile.

You're predictable, but in a good way.  You're very loyal and your friends feel they can trust you with their lives.

If the bacon-lettuce-tomato is your favorite, you know how to spot a good thing.  You like to keep life simple, fill it with good times, and avoid drama.

You're carefree, the life of the party, and specialize in having a good time.  Everyone loves you.

This might not be what you want to hear, but you are crazy intense.  That can have its down side, but it also means you're very passionate and a serious risk taker.  Nothing scares you.

MUFFULETTA SANDWICH (I have to admit that I don't know what this is and have never noticed it on a menu)
You're a mover and a shaker.  People come to you when they need a problem solved or just a good dose of inspiration.

You like to walk, not run.  You're a lover, not a fighter.  You always stop to smell the roses.

If this is your first choice, you have a bold voice and you're not afraid to make it heard.  Loud And Proud is your life motto.  You're the natural leader of any gathering.

You're an old soul.  Words flow from you like beautiful poetry.  You don't bother with appearances and you don't need to because you're so beautiful on the inside.

You're a hopeless romantic, swept up with feelings of nostalgia.  But you are going to have to grow up some time.

I don't know how they arrived at the 10 specific sandwiches listed in the article.  There are several popular ones not on this list.  The first thing that came to my mind was whether chicken and turkey were considered to be the same.  Then I thought about the Club sandwich—a combination of the BLT, turkey with some ham thrown in.  And speaking of ham, there's also the Ham sandwich and its close relative the Ham and Cheese sandwich.

And, of course, there are also those two all-American creations that are extremely popular—the Hamburger and the favorite at baseball games, the Hot Dog.

Geez, I'm a mess - my favorite sandwich isn't listed, and my second and third choices are diametrically opposed!

Lol, I love how food plays into our personalities.

Ashantay: Maybe that means you cover all bases as far as your behavior patters? A well-rounded person?

My favorite isn't listed, either. :)

Thanks for your comment

Debbie: Food is definitely a necessity for sustaining life, so I guess it's logical that it would intrude into our personalities as well. :)

Thanks for your comment.
