Today on the show we talked about the shows we typically like to watch and what it says about our personality.
Here is what the study says….
Jason Loves to watch shows like Late Night, News, The Daily Show and the Colbert Report.
If you like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Then you’re…hard-working and thorough
If you prefer Jimmy as a nightcap to a glass of wine, you’re probably a pretty conscientious person, according to the research. Those who watch this show were found to be careful and vigilant, and eager to perform tasks well and in a timely manner. But it’s not necessarily the comedic aspect of Fallon’s show that keeps people tuning in: The conscientious viewers were also more likely to be busier than the average TV fan, getting their media fix mostly after work or on weekends.
Alexis loves to watch shows like The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Jane the Virgin, and Empire.
If you like Parks and Recreation
Then you’re…unconventional and intellectual
If you rooted for Leslie Knope as she climbed the political ladder week after week, you’re much more likely to have an active imagination, according to research. Those who preferred comedies to other shows scored high in openness, revealing both artistic and intellectual qualities. The research also suggests these people are more in tune with their inner feelings and favor variety over uniformity. But it’s not all fun and games: Comedy-watchers were also found to be risk takers who are more likely gamble.
April loves shows like The Voice, American Idol, Americas Got Talent, and Wipeout.
If you like The Voice
Then you’re…cooperative and considerate
Closely watching contestants song-battle it out for the title of “The Voice” could actually show your softer side, according to researchers. Regular reality TV-watchers scored highly in agreeableness—exhibiting more kindness, warmth, and sympathy than those who preferred scripted programming. Fans of The Voice’s upbeat and positive judges—Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, and Blake Shelton for the 2015 season—were more likely to view others in a better light, believing that people are mostly honest, good, and trustworthy. Bonus points: research suggests The Voice viewers tend to be good bargain shoppers and more fashion-forward
Do you agree with the research?
