iceecream

In Japan, it’s common to try to pinpoint a person’s personality type based on a variety of factors, from the more traditional blood type theory and looking at first names to analyzing nail shape.

In a new trend, Japanese Twitter users have been comparing the way they eat ice cream with one another and musing what that says about them as people. Sadly, while no one has created an infographic yet depicting what the different types mean, it’s still fun to marvel at all the eating styles out there. Where do you fit in with them all?

The latest social media trend in Japan has been to post a picture of how you eat your ice cream and look for fellow net users with the same method. This family in particular displays a surprising range of styles:

“My family ate ice cream together and then we all laughed at our different eating styles LOL. Everyone’s personality came out.”

Let’s take a look at some of the different styles out there!

A majority of people seem to like eating around the edges first:

“I’m the type who likes to eat it around the sides first!”

Some people even craft a mini mountain in the center of their cup:

“I make a mountain while eating my ice cream.”

There are some that leave a thin pillar in the middle:

“I’ve got a bad (?) habit of eating my ice cream like this.”

And some that craft an adorable snowball:

“I can’t be the only one who eats their ice cream like this, right?”

This interesting fellow compacts his snowball at the very end!

This ice cream fan enjoys going against the grain (what does this say about his personality?):

“A new way of eating.”

Others created novel ways of eating cones. One net user’s grandmother eats it from the bottom first:

Meanwhile, this person splits it in two:

He likes an air of sophistication:

“I tried putting my cup ice cream on a plate. Now I feel super fancy.”

People who doodle on their ice cream must be incredibly patient:

Finally, here are some other “wild styles”:

Who knew that there were so many ways to eat everyone’s favorite summery treat? Do you feel an affinity for other people who eat ice cream the same way you do?
