Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) is known for her stylish clothes and shopping habits, her somewhat spoiled personality and her romantic relationship with Ross.

If Rachel’s your favorite of the Friends characters, your friends are probably always raiding your closet and asking you to go shopping with them — which is fine with you because nothing makes you as happy as wiping out your credit card and buying trendy clothes!

Another big part of Rachel’s character arc is her relationship with Ross. So, if Rachel is your favorite character, you have either been in an on-and-off relationship or you crave the thrill of a decade-spanning love story that has everyone begging for the two of you to work it out and just get back together once and for all. 

If your favorite character is Monica Geller…

If you’re always the hostess who’s obsessed with cleaning, cooking and winning, your favorite character is likely Monica Geller (Courteney Cox).

Monica always talks about how she likes things precise and organized, and when that doesn’t happen, she freaks out just a little bit. The same thing has probably happened to you, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing! After all, there’s nothing wrong with liking things a certain way and wanting to ensure every item and space in your home sparkles.

Monica is also obsessed with winning, no matter how big or small the competition is, and you probably feel the same way. Whether it’s a friendly game of cards or the summer Olympics, if you can’t win, you don’t see the point in playing. After all, doesn’t winning make everything better? 

If your favorite character is Phoebe Buffay…

Bubbly, fun-loving and down-to-earth, Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow) is the perfect character for those who feel like they have an old soul.

Phoebe is someone who is very into natural healing, connecting with the earth, and being there for her friends no matter the circumstances, and if she is your favorite character, you most likely feel the same way.

Another unique thing about Phoebe is that she’s never afraid to be her loud and proud self. You most likely love that about her and try to live your with the same free-spirited energy.

If your favorite character is Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), people probably think you’re a flirt, and sometimes you can be, but at the end of the day, you’re the most loyal friend anyone could have.

You also love food and refuse to share your pizza and sandwiches. You probably feel there’s nothing as relaxing as sitting in a recliner watching TV with your favorite drink and snack.

While you may be perceived as a bit simple-minded at times, that is the furthest thing from the truth. You just prefer spending time with your best friends over reading a book, and there’s nothing wrong with that!

If your favorite character is Chandler Bing…

Of all the Friends characters, Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) just might be the funniest, thanks to his knack for both sarcasm and laugh-out-loud humor.

If he’s your Friends fave, you’re definitely the jokester of your friend group and love to make people laugh. Comedy movies are probably your preferred genre, and you try to never take life too seriously.

You might be a little awkward at some points, but that has never stopped you from winning people over. You are a great friend and an even better significant other, and people feel lucky to have you in their lives. 

If your favorite character is Ross Geller…

If you’re reading this while at a museum, watching a documentary or during that much-needed puzzle break, then your favorite character is definitely Ross Geller, PhD (David Schwimmer). You love learning new things, traveling the world and getting lost in a good book.

You’re also most likely a devoted parent, sibling or friend and will do anything to protect the ones you love. People might think you can be a little selfish and rude at times, but it’s really your way of trying to keep those closest to you happy and safe.

You’re also passionate about your work (bonus points if you’re a teacher or professor… or a paleontologist) and love being able to tell people everything there is to know about what you do.
