      The fruit and veggie personality test

      Food preferences often indicate personality traits and vice versa,
      according to Dr. Alan Hirsch's research at the Smell & Taste Research
      and Treatment Foundation in Chicago. See how you stack up when it
      comes to fruits and vegetables:

      1. Which group of fruits and vegetables do you prefer?

      a. Oranges, bananas and grapes

      b. Eggplant, corn and tomatoes

      2. Do you like spicy pickles?

      Yes or no

      3. Which do you prefer? (choose one from each pair)

      a. Green olives or black olives

      b. Pecans or almonds

      c. Pickles or cucumbers

      4. Which do you prefer?

      a. Lemons or oranges

      b. Potatoes or yams

      c. Grapefruit or tangerines

      ANSWERS:

      1. If you prefer: (a) fruits, it indicates you are a strong-minded,
      ambitious, aggressive and dominant individual, who is a natural
      leader. (b) vegetables, it indicates you tend to be introspective,
      self-searching and sensitive to the needs of others.

      2. Spicy pickles tend to indicate pessimism; a "no" answer tends to
      indicate optimism.

      3. If two or more of your answers are the first choice (green olives,
      pecans or pickles), you tend to be assertive in your relationships
      and enthusiastic in everything you do. Although anxious at times, you
      are a decisive and resilient person. If two or more of your answers
      are the second choice (black olives, almonds or cucumbers), you tend
      to take responsibility for your own actions, you are self-confident
      and a natural leader.

      4. If two or more answers are the first choice (lemons, potatoes or
      grapefruit), you tend to be reserved, quiet and contemplative and are
      not generally compulsive. If two or more are the second choice
      (oranges, yams and tangerines), you are likely an outgoing,
      gregarious person with a good sense of humor who enjoys a stable
      relationship.
