You can learn a lot about a person based on their cereal preference. Someone who fills their bowl with Froot Loops is fundamentally different from a Frosted Flakes loyalist, just as the individual who happily slurps leftover chocolate milk from Cocoa Puffs might as well be on a different planet than the person who reaches for Raisin Bran.
So tell us: If you could only choose one favorite cereal, what would it be? It's a hard question for sure, but it's very important that you have an answer. Once you've decided, read on to see what that says about your personality.
You are traditional and hard-working. You value having a routine, which is perfectly balanced between work and fun. Your work ethic is outstanding, and you particularly enjoy doing things with your hands. You know how to fix things around the house, and consider your dog to be your best friend.

You strive for balance in all aspects of your life. You're trying to be healthy, but don't want to deny yourself something sweet from time to time. Often it's hard to decide what you want and what you actually need. You work in a creative environment, and occasionally enjoy going to yoga in order to relieve some of your anxiety.
You get immense joy out of the small things in life. Living for the day is not something you need to think about, because you are the living embodiment of that statement. You love trying new things, and wearing bright clothing. On any given weekend you're probably trying out that cool unicycle your neighbor just got for his birthday, or building forts by yourself.
You are mysterious and reserved. On the one hand, you come off as a little bland or quiet, but when someone really gets to know you and sees what you're capable of, they discover you're actually super sweet. You might be soft-spoken and kinda sneaky, but that makes you a good secret agent (what you've always dreamed of for a career).
You were that weird art kid in high school who turned out to be really cool and semi-successful. All the popular kids try to chat you up on LinkedIn, but you're too busy doing fun things on the Internet. You also have a high tolerance for pain, which is evident by the fact that you once cut yourself while cooking and didn't freak out. Not even a little.

You are a busy person and can get stressed easily, but are secretly super sweet. Don't worry, all of your friends and colleagues come to love this about you, but maybe take a break once and awhile. You look a lot younger than you actually are, and have a knack for writing.

You are a down-to-earth dreamer. Amongst your friends, you are the person everyone is drawn to. You have multiple Pinterest boards dedicated to travel and clothes you can't afford. Growing up, you probably were on your high school softball or baseball team.
You are intense and full of energy and you don't care who notices. You surround yourself with passionate people who care about you, so you can go wild. You like staying up really late and painting large murals of who knows what. Your home is full of sprinkles and sparkles.
You are a lover. It doesn't take a lot to make you incredibly happy, but you still like things a certain way. Your favorite book of all time is probably Harry Potter, and you love listening to whatever is on the radio. You are easy-going and friendly to everyone you meet. Sometimes you overshare what's happening in your life, but that's OK.
You can be a little hedonistic a times, but you're still an inspiration to your friends. You are always the one to get the party started. Work or school does not define who you are – you live for the weekend where you can work on small independent projects. Working out is not your thing.
You are a champion at heart. A true warrior that fights for other's happiness and well-being. You live a standard life, nothing fancy or indulgent, but you take pleasure in what you can give other people. You love going on long, slow runs to clear your head.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
You have a DIY approach to life, and you don't like when people tell you something isn't possible. You often get really excited about one project for a couple months, before dropping it and finding something new. Last month you were really into the idea of making your own soap, but now you're all about making your own beer.
You're the organized explainer amongst family and friends. Your home could be burning down and you'd be totally in control and know exactly what needs to happen with the insurance company. Sometimes you can be a little bit of a soggy grump and a know-it-all, but you know what you're doing.
You were a bit of a nerd in school. You still carry around a backpack instead of briefcase or purse, and your favorite TV show is Doctor Who. You're a bit of homebody, and spend a lot of time on Reddit.
