What Your Favorite 90s Sitcom Says About You

July 11, 2011

Sure, you’ve taken the Myers-Brigg test and a strengths finder quiz. You may have even read a few self-help books and written a blog entry about Donald Miller’s book, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. But if you really want to know why you are who you are, and understand your life goals, just think about what your favorite 90s shows were. Your personality explained:

Full House1. Full House: You’re an idealist who most likely dreamt about growing up to get married, have children, and buying your daughter a bed with pencils as posts. You probably also wanted to get engaged at Disney World during the nightly fireworks.

2. Family Matters: You have a soft spot for quirky people, the type of people some would call “incredibly annoying.” Your family may also have a third child who somehow disappeared (whether in actuality, or was just ignored) when he or she was 12.

3. Northern Exposure: First, you watched this as a kid? Weird. You probably grew up to become the type of person who buys a book about philosophy and then actually reads it. You own a mountain bike and ride it on your vacations to Colorado. Your favorite new band is Mumford & Sons, though your all-time favorite music is by some obscure jazz musician that you only listen to on vinyl.

4. Clarissa Explains it All: You’re creative and independent. You’ve always been interested in social causes and buy as many fair trade and organic items as possible. But you aren’t a judgmental jerk about all of this and sometimes you even indulge in Kraft macaroni and cheese.

5. Home Improvement: Just like those who enjoyed Full House, you also wanted to grow up to get married and have kids. The difference, though, is that you solve your problems with less heart-to-heart talks, and more sarcasm. You try to become friends with all your neighbors, but continue to be disappointed that most of them know more about the UFC than they do philosophy.

Mad About You6. Mad About You: You probably grew up in the country or the suburbs, but what you really wanted was to live in the city. You love dogs and your spouse, and can’t wait to have children someday (but not right away). You also arrange your apartment’s furniture in a completely illogical layout.

7. Friends: You loved this show and have been trying to recreate it in your own life ever since. You’ve been disappointed to find that most people don’t spend 18 hours a day with their closest friends, and the dorm life is usually experienced only by those living in college dorms. Your friends are probably not as funny as these guys, though thankfully they’re also not as whiny as Ross.

    My favorite was Boy Meets World, which didn’t make the list. My runner up is Full House, and that is a very accurate description of me. I’m a real life Danny Tanner without the children, the brother-in law, and the funny friend living in his house.

    I loved Boy Meets World too (the earlier years…I didn’t really watch the last couple seasons). And not to jump the gun, but hopefully Boy Meets World ends up perfectly explaining your life since Cory married a girl he’d known for years…I’m just saying.

    Spot on! Mine is Full House and Dave’s is Home Improvement. You’ve got us pegged.

      I loved Full House when it was on, but can’t handle the cheese in reruns. However, my heart is still full of Home Improvement and Tivo it every time it comes on.
