Coffee personality

I’m a bit of a coffee nut. I make my own half-caff, flavored, creamer-enhanced blend every morning, unless it’s Saturday, when my sister and I make a pilgrimage to Starbucks. My standard drink is a grande nonfat latte; I add the flavor powders (instead of shots) and Splenda to customize it. This analyis of my “latte personality” comes via MaryP:

What Your Latte Says About You

You don’t treat yourself very often. You find that indulging doesn’t jibe with your very disciplined life.

You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious.

You have a good deal of energy, but you pace yourself. You never burn out too fast.

You’re addicted to caffeine. There’s no denying it.

You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

You are complex and philosophical, but you are never arrogant.

I assume the first attribute is based on skim milk and no flavor shots – and it is wrong. I’m not a hedonist, but no one who knows me would agree that I rarely indulge myself. I think I do pace myself reasonably well; I’m an Aries, and one of our distinguishing traits is supposed to be high energy, but I don’t tend to think I have that one. Otherwise, I think they may have me figured out.

Sometimes I’ll stop in for an after-dinner coffee instead of dessert – and I’ll usually order that decaf (it’s evening!), flavored, and with whole milk (when you’re used to skim, anything else tastes like heavy cream).
Let’s see what kind of personality that one has:

What Your Latte Says About You

You are very decadent in all aspects of your life. You never scale back, and you always live large.

You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious.

You have a good deal of energy, but you pace yourself. You never burn out too fast.

You have a healthy relationship with caffeine. You’re definitely not dependent on it.

You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

You are sophisticated and daring, but you are never snobby.

Apparently the milk makes a huge difference on the “indulgence” scale. Other than that, half the items are the same, and of course going from regular to decaf would seem to indicate a lack of caffeine dependency. In my case, I just shouldn’t drink it at night.
