What Your Favorite 'Friends' Character Says About You

It's been nearly 10 years since 'Friends' took its final bow back in May 2004, yet we still can't seem to get enough of our favorite Central Perk customers. Through makeups and breakups, Ugly Naked Guys and Philanges, this gang has been there for us as much as we've been there for them.
And even though all six of these characters are absolutely wonderful in their own unique ways, deep down every fan has a favorite. Whether it's Rachel or Monica, Joey or Chandler, one of these guys (or girls) holds a special place in our hearts. But what does this say about our own personalities? Luckily for you, I happen to have a Ph.D. in 'Friends'-ology (yes, that's an actual major) and have broken down exactly what these different characters say about the people who love them. Could you BE anymore excited to read this article?
Character: Ross Geller
What Your Favorite 'Friends' Character Says About You
What It Says About You: You're one of those people who can easily spout off random facts on almost any topic. Even in school you were always the smartest person in the room, which did wonders for your report cards, but not so much for your social life. Your favorite subject is history, probably because you have a tendency to live in the past — like obsessing over a former flame or making a career of studying extinct reptiles. Your DVR is filled with episodes of the Discovery Channel. You have a tendency to let your temper get the best of you, but it's only because you put so much passion into whatever you do. You hate being wrong. Also, you're the best at giving directions. (PIVOT!)
Character: Monica Geller
Courteney Cox on Friends
What It Says About You: You are a natural born leader. In fact, you even have a tendency to take charge over matters that have absolutely nothing to do with you — like planning your boss's kid's graduation party whom you've never even met. To you, cleaning and organizing is just as common as breathing. You're extremely competitive and most likely suffer from a mild case of OCD. You plan all the group get togethers and host all the parties. In short, you're the glue that holds your finely tuned social structure together. Sure, you're a little bossy at times, but your superb cooking skills more than make up for it.
Character: Joey Tribbiani
Matt LeBlanc on Friends
What It Says About You: You're most likely in your late 20s or early 30s with no intention of settling down anytime in the near future. You enjoy your freedom and like the idea of pursuing whatever (or whomever) you like. Your flirtatious nature and insanely good looks allows you to get your way, most of the time. You believe monogamy is a breast exam older women have every year. So yeah, you have a tendency to be a little naive, but this childlike innocence mostly just adds to your overall appeal. You come from a very big family, making you extremely protective and loyal to those you care about. The rest is all a moo point. Oh, and you do NOT like to share food. Like ever.
Character: Phoebe Buffay
Lisa Kudrow on Friends
What It Says About You: You're a free spirit who marches to the beat of your own drum. While some people can't function without a salary-paid 9 to 5 career, you're more than happy to drift from one job to the next. Money is of little or no importance to you. You're quirky, adventurous, and, never afraid to stand up for what you believe in. You're most likely a vegetarian and a huge animal rights activist for PETA. You don't pay taxes. (Four oh one-k's are so overrated.) You absolutely love open mic nights at the local bar down the street and are the first to get up there and belt your lungs out. You've probably been arrested at least once.
Character: Rachel Green
Jennifer Aniston on Friends
What It Says About You: You were always the popular person in school, which makes you very sensitive to any form of criticism. You love everything about fashion and make sure your wardrobe is always up-to-date on the latest trends. You have a habit of dating your close friends — sometimes even more than once. You constantly have the need to try and prove yourself to others. You get extremely emotional while watching Disney movies. And just for the record, you don't believe in going on breaks.
Character: Chandler Bing
Matthew Perry on Friends
What It Says About You: Sarcastic comments and witty punchlines are your bread and butter. You have a comeback for everything and love nothing more than to make people laugh — partly because you're just a genuinely funny person, and partly because you like keeping the world at an arm's length. You use humor as a defense mechanism and have a hard time making any kind of commitment, especially when it comes in the form of a relationship. However, once you let someone in, they're with you for keeps. And while you may not be so great at giving advice, you're the best at cheering people up, even during the most inappropriate situations (like cracking jokes at a funeral to lighten the mood). You also have a deep and unexplainable love for sweater vests.
But, in all honesty, no matter who your favorite ended up being, you guys are all super awesome for just loving this show in general. 1,000 Bamboozle points for everyone!
