Advice for Dating: Is His TEVO a Crystal Ball? What His Favorite TV Shows Say About His Personality

What Your Favorite TV Shows Say About You

Today on DAYTIME, I’m talking about a new study reported by Mindset Media that found that viewers of certain shows tended to have similar personality traits.

For example, if you watch me every week on Daytime, you’re quite obviously smart, good-looking, and destined to find true love.

If you watch Mad Men (I admit it, my favorite show) you’re most likely creative, emotionally sensitive, intellectually curious, and socially liberal. You’re also more likely to choose a Mac over a PC. But hey, who isn’t? (In case you’re wondering — yes, I am “all of the above” on personality traits.)

If you watch The Office, you’re more likely to have a bit of a superiority complex (I’m not saying you’re wrong, I’m just saying.) Office watchers are more likely to consider themselves superior to others, believe that they are extraordinary, and, of course, toot their own horns about their accomplishments. Hey, if you’ve got it, flaunt it, right?

Watchers of The Biggest Loser are traditional and realistic — which means they work with what they’ve got (marriage, job, kids) and they live in the present. Practical people.

Did you see what Bristol was wearing last night on Dancing With The Stars? Then you’re more likely to be compliant, traditional, respectful of authority, deferential to others, and a person who prefers stability — (and judging from high profile members of the GOP like Tom Delay and Bristol Palin — possibly Republican.)

Watchers of Glee are most likely creative, open to new things, and searching for unusual and varied experiences in their lives.

If you watch The Real Housewives you’re probably pugnacious (unafraid to tell other people exactly what you think), you value honesty over keeping the peace (what kind of friend would you be if you didn’t tell it like it is?), and probably a leader. Real Housewives fans also like Botox. Seriously!

If you watch Family Guy, you’re probably obnoxious. Oh wait, that’s just my opinion. Here’s what the study said: Family Guy watchers are rebellious, risk-taking, averse to rules and structure, open to challenges, and give their opinions using sarcasm and/or anger. Charming, right?
