I remember somebody once said that people could be separated into two groups- those that loved Elvis, and those that loved the Beatles, and that preference could tell you a lot about a person (though they never said what it would tell you). Actually, I love both, but that's besides the point. It seems to me that there are other comparisons like that that could potentially tell a lot about a person, so I thought I would come up with a test where you would indicate your preference, and we could discuss what the results might say about a person (just for the fun of it):

1. Elvis or Beatles?

2. Ginger or Mary Ann?

3. Bugs Bunny or Road Runner?

4. James Dean or Marlon Brando?

5. Caddyshack or Animal House?

I think these were mentioned elsewhere on the board:

Munsters or Addams Family?
Flintstones or Jetsons?

Now I'm the exact opposite of Rum Demon...

1. Elvis
2. Ginger
3. Bugs Bunny
4. Marlon Brando
5. Caddyshack

...this could get interesting, I'm anxious to see if others vote directly down the line or if people tend to pick and choose.

Edited With PJ's additions...
6. Munsters
7. Flintstones

I have my own theories as to what each choice means, but wanted to get some answers first from people and then start a discussion on meanings (very unscientific, of course) but wanted to get answers first.

Now we've got Monkeyman crossing the opposing lines set by Rum Demon and myself...now the question is, what does it all mean?

What does 'none of the above' mean?

I would say that Mojo's reply prooves that he is a free-thinking no-conformist.

Okay, to get the discussions rolling, I'm going to give my thoughts on what they mean, but I welcome differences of opinion as I am certainly no Psychologist.

1. This is kind of tough because the Beatles reinvented themselves a couple of times. If you look at early Beatles, you could say that they were rather straight laced and their music was pretty happy sounding, while Elvis was a little cooler and had a bad boy image. Perhaps Beatle fans have more eclectic tastes, while Elvis fans tend to be cooler and more rebelious.

2. Both girls are quite sexy, but Ginger is more glamorous and showy while Mary Ann is more honest and down to earth (just check out the difference in make-up) Ginger is more into image (both her own and her men) while Mary Ann is more real. This would mirror the values of the person that voted for each one (or it could just be the hair colors).

3. Both characters always get the best of their foes, but do so in much dofferent ways. Bugs is boisterous and loud, and uses elaborate schemes, while the Road Runner is quiet and uses simple escapes (usually involving his speed) to best his opponent. RR fans like to take the simple, direct approach to problems, whille BB fans like to make big plans and raise quite a ruckus. Or it could just be you think one is funnier than the other.

4. Both Dean and Brando were considered cool and hansome in their day, but they had vastly different acting styles. Like the difference between BB and RR above, Dean was quite and almost mumbled his lines- he was the strong silent cool. Brando played rough and tough characters and was considered by most to be the better actor (possibly the best of his day if not all time). There was just more substance to Brando's reputation as an actor, while Dean's rep was more from his image (which included the fact that he died so young). I think it could be a reflection of whether you value form over substance.

5. Both comedy classics about immature and fun loving rebels vs. the establishement and polite society. The difference seems to be that the protagonists in Animal House are really losers. They never really accomplish anything except wanton destruction and mischief. The folks in Caddyshack are mostly wealthy and successful anarchists- look at Chevy Chase and Rodney's characters- they're rich. Even the caddy ends up getting a job and a college scholarship. This would infdicate that Animal House fans just want to party and have a good time, while Caddyshack fans want to succeed, and then party and have a good time.

Discuss....
