How Do You Eat Your Oreo Cookies?

I have been doing serious cleaning out at work and ran across the following print-out. It is rather amusing if you aren't too sensitive.

Psychologists have discovered that the manner in which people eat Oreo cookies provides great insight into their personalities. Choose which method best describes your favorite method of eating Oreos:
  1. The whole thing all at once.
  2. One bite at a time.
  3. Slow and methodical nibbles, examining the results of each bite afterwards.
  4. In little feverous nibbles.
  5. Dunked in some liquid (milk, coffee...).
  6. Twisted apart, eat the inside, then the cookie.
  7. Twisted apart, eat the inside, and toss the cookie.
  8. Just the cookie, not the inside.
  9. I just like to lick them, not eat them.
  10. I don't have a favorite way because I don't like Oreos.
Scroll down to find your results...
  1. The whole thing: This means you consume life with abandon, you are fun to be with, exciting, carefree with some hint of recklessness. You are totally irresponsible. No one should trust you with their children.
  2. One bite at a time: You are lucky to be one of the 5.4 billion other people who eat their Oreos this very same way. Just like them, you lack imagination, and are just one of the herd.
  3. Slow and methodical: You follow the rules. You're very tidy and orderly. You're very meticulous in every detail with everything you do to the point of being anal retentive. Most people hate you.
  4. Feverish nibbles: You boss likes you because you get your work done quickly. You always have a million things to do and never enough time to do them. Mental breakdowns and suicides run in your family. Megadoses of Prozac and Valium are called for. Now!
  5. Dunked: Everyone likes you because you are always upbeat. You like to sugar coat unpleasant experiences and rationalize bad situations into good ones. You are in total denial about the shambles you call a life.
  6. Twisted apart, the inside, then the cookie: You have a highly curious nature. You take pleasure in breaking things apart to find out how they work., though you are not always able to put them back together, so you destroy all the evidence of your activities. You deny your involvement. You are a compulsive liar and exhibit deviant, if not criminal behavior.
  7. Twisted apart, the inside, and toss the cookie: You are good at business and take risks that pay off. You take what you want and throw the rest away. You are greedy, selfish, mean, and lack feelings for others. You should be ashamed of yourself.
  8. Just the cookie, not the inside: You enjoy pain. And I'm pretty sure you have herpes.
  9. I just like to lick them, not eat them: Stay away from small furry animals and seek psychological help - immediately.
  10. I don't have a favorite way because I don't like Oreos: You probably come from a rich family, and like to wear nice things, and go to up-scale restaurants. You are particular and fussy about the things you buy, own, and wear. You are a priss.
When I showed this to a co-worker they figured that I was #3. I guess they hate me. Look at the comments to see how I really eat my Oreo cookies. Actually, I do two methods: one if they are fresh and a different one if they are stale. How do YOU eat your Oreo cookies?

Ok, if they are fresh I am a #5 and if they are stale I am a #7. I guess I should be ashamed about my denial. ;)

What a HOOT! I’m a #6 and I believe I am an imaginative story teller rather than a compulsive liar. I’m not a criminal (shades of Nixon), but then I haven’t been caught yet! Thanks for sharing this authentic and well-researched personality inventory. QK

Terrific post Deb; very insightful. I'm a mess, I guess, 'cause I tend to eat Oreo's differently; I kind of combine all the ways to eat them :) I so enjoy your illustrations, here, on your Blog! Wonderful and how they make me smile - thank you!

I am number five. "Dunked: Everyone likes you because you are always upbeat. You like to sugar coat unpleasant experiences and rationalize bad situations into good ones. You are in total denial about the shambles you call a life." -- totally accurate!!! -- and I don't hate you. I would only hate you if you said you didn't like oreo cookies :>)
