Some of their predictions had us cocking our heads: Why are omelet-makers "mother figures" and why are lovers of the soft scramble "slow to warm up" (play on words excluded)?
But others had us nodding furiously in agreement: If you like your eggs sunny-side up, you've got "a wild side with an old soul" (true!); if you like them poached, you're "mysterious and elusive" (seems reasonable!); and if you prefer them soft-boiled, you're "classy and beautiful" (two adjectives most people would not shrug off).
But in reality, egg preparation varies within the confines of a personality: You probably eat them over-easy, poached, soft-boiled, omelet'd, and sunny side-up—and your disposition is constant all the while.
Judging by the (Not)Recipes posts (white and yellow and fried and scrambled at morning, noon, and night), you're eating eggs in all styles, at all times of day. Log in at any given time and you're guaranteed to find an egg or five. Should the name of the app change to Egg(Not)Recipes?
Here are some of the best eggs we've seen on the app, in all styles, from all sorts of personalities:
Poached, on toast:
From all you mysterious and hard-to-pin-down people out there.
Poached, on top of or adjacent to vegetables:
Cut mushrooms into quarters and sauté in butter over high heat until just cooked and crispy and set aside.
Slice and butter brioche and toast on medium heat in a frying pan until golden brown. While the brioche is toasting poach egg in simmering water for about 3 minutes. Once your egg is cooked, drain and set aside.
Mix together 3 roasted garlic cloves and 1 tbsp pesto until well combined and spread over toasted brioche. Then layer your seasoned & sautéed mushrooms on top of the bread, followed by your poached egg! Garnish with shaved Parmesan and lemon zest! Enjoy!!!

Same deal, but fried:
From those of you on the wilder side.
Fried, next to waffles (hash brown waffles and fried rice waffles):
Fried—but now on toast:
Sprinkle salt and pepper on toast, and egg while you're at it. When egg yolk is to your liking, slide into toast. Cut (diagonally of course) and watch yolk ooze out. Enjoy (with a bib if you're wearing white)!
Then mash 1/4-1/2 of avocado
Spread avocado onto toast
Then fry an egg and place on avocado
Add any seasoning that you would like I usually just add salt and pepper
On pizza (!):
If you do this, we've got one word to describe your personality: very smart. (Oh, two words.)
In a potato:
If your personality is: "I do not like weird warm avocado and have devised a better edible egg-baking vessel."
Set into omelettes and frittatas:
From all the mother figures of the egg-cooking world. Or from cooks who are really SET in their ways. (Get it?!)
I have other variations posted on my site chitchaaatchai.com #happyeating #cookwithlove #goldeneggs
Classy AND beautiful. How can you beat that? (Yep, I've included myself here.)
Slow to warm up (and very fast to cool down and go rubbery?).
Found tortillas in the freezer so I decided to whip these up.
Avocado, scrambled eggs, sautéed spinach and corn was all I needed. #breakfast #taco #vegetarian
