What Your Favorite Thanksgiving Food Says About Your Personality

Let’s face it: These days, Thanksgiving is all about the food. You might have to suffer through awkward conversations with your Great Aunt Karen, but at least you get some pie for your troubles. We all have our favorite Thanksgiving food, but what does yours say about your personality? Look for your favorite below.


You’re a people-pleaser. You’ll do whatever it takes to make sure everyone else is having a good time. Does that mean your own fun comes last on your list? Sure, but if they’re happy, you’re happy.


You like what you like and you don’t care one bit how anyone feels about it. You’ll wear what you want, listen to what you want, and eat what you want, thanks. It also means that you don’t shy from an argument and often choose the stance of the “devil’s advocate,” much to the eyerolls of people around you.

Cranberry Sauce

You’re an incredibly opinionated person who isn’t afraid to share those opinions with people, even when they haven’t asked. At the very least, no one can accuse you of being boring.

Green Bean Casserole

You’re incredibly old fashioned and get uncomfortable any time someone breaks tradition. You’re the one at Thanksgiving still telling people the outdated social rule of not talking about sex, politics, or religion.

Pumpkin Pie

You’re ready for a fight. You may not want to argue, but if anyone so much as steps out of line, you’re ready to put on the boxing gloves. It means you’re a great person to have in your corner, but not to go up against. (AKA, you’re scary.)

Brussels Sprouts

You’re the one who thinks everyone cares about the backpacking trip you took over the summer. Honestly, you’re going to show them pictures of your hikes and all the waterfalls you saw whether they ask to see them or not.

Candied Yams

You’re the sweetest person in the room. No one can stay mad at you, nor would they want to. Ever the shining beacon of positivity, everyone’s happy when you’ve entered the room. (Can you be a little annoying though? Sure, but who isn’t?)

The Wine

You don’t even want to be at Thanksgiving–you only came because you felt obligated. So you’ll sit in the corner and judge everyone. Or, if you talk to them, your acerbic wit will just leave them with a sour taste in their mouth.
