Check out our annual restaurant issue, which this year celebrates desserts, out this Thursday, August 8.

If you're the type of person who often orders dessert, surely you've noticed that you tend to get the same type. You're partial to cakes, maybe, or pies, or you just need a little bit of chocolate before you get on with your night.

Whatever it is, your choice -- like an awful lot of your life choices -- probably reveals a little something about you. Which is where we come in: Playing armchair psychologist, we've made a few guesses as to what your favorite dessert says about your personality. Consider this one more thing to discuss with your therapist.

Anything with chocolate

You're a single-issue voter, your favorite Beatle is Ringo, and you take far too much time picking out vegetables at the market.

Butterscotch Budino

You are damn proud to live in Los Angeles.

You love the macarons at Bottega Louie and sympathize with Veruca Salt more than you may care to admit. Generally, you prefer desserts that have been deconstructed and plated to resemble forest detritus.


You love people, you love celebrating, you love celebrating with people. Really, you don't want the party to end; indeed, dessert was originally served to prolong the night, a fun fact you always share with your dining companions as you order that slice of cake. In fact, you'll usually order more than one dessert just to keep the festivities going and to make sure that everyone is as happy as you are eating cake. Your Myers-Briggs personality type is ISFP, ENFJ or ESTP.

Cheese plate

Your choice Monopoly token is the iron, your favorite classic-rock band is Jethro Tull, and you find pies in jars extremely aggravating, in both concept and execution.
