    I've often wondered if we look at our "favorites" in various categories of life (e.g., movies, books, foods, etc.) whether it says something about our overall personality or self.

    Here are my favorites:

    Book: 'The Blackwell Companion to Natural Theology' ed. William Lane Craig & J.P. Moreland

    Author (non-fiction): Tie between Gary R. Habermas and C. Stephen Evans

    Author (fiction): Charles Dickens

    Sport: Basketball

    Athlete: Rex Chapman (former NBA basketball player)

    Clothing company: Tie between Polo and Puma

    Movie: Clue: The Movie

    Food: Pizza and buffalo wings (but only from Buffalo, NY)

    This is just a sampling. Not sure what is says about me, but here's a guess: A generally Christian, conservative guy, who likes to think about his beliefs and who also enjoys the lighter side, such as unserious movies and junkfood.

    How about you?

    Yes, they do. This thread tells me that you have been reading Carl Jung books again.

    If you like anal, chances are you're a buttman.

    If you are from a small town, either I have psychic powers or your favorite things say a lot about you.

    I like rifles. Stereotype says I'm either a redneck or I have mental issues and I might walk into a public place and shoot people.

    But in reality, I'm born and raised in California and I actually like people in general. I cried for days when I ran over a dog back in 2010. I just love bolt action rifles. I love customizing my rifle and spending sometime at shooting range on my days off.
