Are You Boring? Are You Fun-Loving & Carefree?
Almost all my friends read books. Constantly. They carry a book around with them, if they are in getting their oil changed, they are reading, going to a doctor or dentist appointment, they are reading. I don’t read books like I should. I’m more of a magazine reader. I found this recent study though that says what you read reveals your personality. Here’s what the study found:
- Romantic Novels — You’re sensual and extremely intuitive. You’re also optimistic and quick to bounce back from disappointments.
