Curls and Personality type?

Ok, so I've had dear friends say that my natural curls suit my outgoing personality... I've also witnessed curlies being described as more fun-loving... Just wondering what others think... Feel free to explain your answer or offer anecdotes in addition to voting.

TIA!

I think you have to have a certain amount of confidence to be a curly, since it seems there's so much pressure to have straight hair. So I can see there being a correlation between accepting curls and learning how to have fun with them, and having confidence. And since having confidence can make a person more outgoing, there you go!

I'm curly and naturally reserved/occasionally also shy so I personally see no correlation. People don't tell me my curls suit my outgoing personality but I do hear that they're soft and romantic and suit me that way. My personal style is a blend of very old fashioned and very modern and my hair goes with it well but I could easily make it look different to suit a different style if that was what I wanted to do -- wilder, softer, straighter, whatever. My hair's very easily manipulated.
3a/b, fine, lots of it
Sweetpeacali-

That totally makes sense to me!

Rain-

Curly hair and romantic/sensitive also is a good match too! As for versatility of hair, I feel the same way about curls and my own hair texture, although it differs from yours. As curlies, we just have a lot more options

I happen to be really out going but I've been that way all of my life, even before I was curly and had only real slight waves.

I also know a couple of curlies who are really shy and reserved, one who is my best friend and she happens to straighten alot, so on second thought, maybe there is a correlation!

eta: I voted other so I could explain and I do think my hair fits my personality. I love my hair!!
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
I think there's definitely an expectation that curlies are more outgoing, and that may affect someone's personality indirectly. But I don't think there's a direct correlation.

I voted that I'm naturally reserved/shy. I don't really see a correlation between having curly hair and being more outgoing. If I had bone straight hair, I'd most likely be the same way. Actually, when my hair was straightened in the past, I was still shy. That's just how I am.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

I voted other because I think I have become more at ease with myself since going totally curly or it could be an age thing. I just don't feel the need to conform anymore. I like the feeling of being individual.
I don't get hordes of people telling me my curls are lovely (1 or 2 have) but I love them & like the way they feel.

Also I think curls make you look more easyging & approachable, I often seem to be the person out of a group that people ask directions from or speak to in the supermarket queue. (or maybe it's my natural charm )

I am pretty shy normally, but when I straighten my hair, I'm more talkative and flirty, but not more outgoing. Make sense?
I'm a 2something/3something. Started modified CG routine on 6/6/05
Cut more than ten inches from my BSL hair on 8-10-05 and growing it long again
But we're STILL adjusting.
I can be shy, but consider myself a "people" person. The interesting tidbit is: I am a pilot, and our flight department of 20 pilots has 4 females and we all have curly hair. Coincidence? I don't think so. (PS. I am privy to the fact that mgmt has frequent conversations about our "messy" hair. That makes me mad. My hair was like this when they hired me. I can shave my head, but I don't think that would look more "professional." My cut my hair short and that just made it stick up in the slightest moisture or wind. So I grew it out so I can put it up, which is what I frequently do.)
Modified CG since 9/03. 2B/3A. JESSICURL!!! Gentle Poo, Aloeba, Gelebration, Awe; or Mop Top Poo & Condish; Curlisto Mousse & Gel I. Winter: Elucence MB Clarify, Shampoo & Conditioner. ACV & honey rinses. Plop & Pixiecurl diffuse. Password: curls
I think because I was self-conscious about my hair in high school, it made me more reserved than if I was totally confident about my hair. Now that I've graduated college, etc., having curly hair is more accepted and I feel more confident when I wear it curly. I do think in some way though, my unruly hair contributed to my shyness...

I chose other as I agree with what most everyone said. And I mainly agree with what Sweepeacali wrote above since I've only been wearing my mane curly for the past 2.5-3 years or so.
HairType: multi-texture 3a/b/c
I'm naturally shy, but I do think that my curls fit my personality so much better than straight hair would. I'm silly and sarcastic and my hair fits that perfectly. Curly alexa mentioned easygoing, which I am, but I also have a little dramatic flair. My curls are unpedictable, just like me!
3a/b, fine hair... with a mind of its own!
PW- frenchfries

Your hair, it's everywhere. Screaming infidelities, taking its wear.
WOW the shy girls are outnumbering us more gung ho gals.... We'll have to do something about that :P

Some very interesting posts! Thanks everyone for your theories and thoughts

I had to pick "Other". I'm not really shy and I'm not really outgoing. I'm kinda the poetic, romantic type mixed with a little sarcastic comedy.

Some days I am totally obnoxious, and other days I'm a joy to be around. LOL!

I think my personality varies as much as my curls, not to memtion, I'm a Gemini, so that factors in too.
Corkicelli Now! YAY! Now all I have to do is update my avy pic.

I just want to say that there are different types of shyness. Different people get shy over different things.
