Which phone-based stereotype are you?

According to a Nielsen Media Research study, the brand of cell phone you use may say a lot about your personality. At least if you're Australian.

They say many dogs look like their owners. Now, according to a Nielsen Media Research study, the brand of cell phone you use may say a lot about your personality. At least if you're Australian.

If you use this phone, you're probably an Australian young woman from the future.

The Sydney Morning Herald has a story about the results of the study, which concluded that Nokia users are family-minded, Motorola users are fashion-conscious, Sony Ericsson users are ambitious young men, LG users are stay-at-home parents, and Samsung users are young women.

From the Sydney Morning Herald story:

Sydneysider Dane Maddams, 21, of Concord, agrees that you can tell a lot about a person by their mobile phone...

Mr. Maddams has a Sony Ericsson K800i and says he could be described as an ambitious young man trying to make his mark.

"I'm definitely not a middle-aged woman," he said, adding that if someone were to pull out a "crappy old brick of a Nokia" they would be harshly judged by his peers.

Wow. Add "Nokia-hater" to the list of Sony Ericsson user traits. In Australia, at least.
