Here's exactly what your choice of phone case says about you as a person.

Have you ever wondered what your phone case says about you?

…Yeah, we haven’t either.

But let’s not pretend we don’t all love very philosophical and accurate personality tests like finding out what flavour Dorito we are.

They are a very important means of procrastination way of discovering yourself.

Okay, so while your phone case meaning is probably not something you’ve thought about before because you’re too busy thinking about… other things (like Doritos), we all have a sensible friend with a folio cover, an Instagram junkie with a mirrored case and selfie light, and a quirky friend with a giant plastic hot dog or similar.

So in a sense, the necessity of phone cases (thank you smartphones for your incredibly fragile screens) has led to them becoming in many ways a reflection of our personalities.

These days, many people consider their phone cases just as important as their earrings, nail polish or handbag as a means of expressing themselves. And with all manner of fashion labels, tech companies and bespoke designers jumping on board to create statement phone covers, we really are spoilt for choice.

According to a survey conducted by phone case company Tirita, 53 per cent of millennial respondents own more than one phone case, and nearly two-thirds match their case with their outfit or makeup.

Whether you favour the extra phone case covered in sparkles, or opt for the comfortable shoe of the phone case world with a folio cover, here are all the extremely important meanings behind your phone case and what it says about you. A phone case horoscope, if you will.

THE FOLIO PHONE CASE

You definitely have your sh*t together. If anyone looked inside your handbag, there’d be not a loose receipt in sight. You never forget about your dentist appointments, and you’re always extremely early to the airport.

In fact, you can’t even fathom how a person could actually miss a flight.

You’ve never dropped your phone, you’ve read all your emails, and those who have hundreds of unread notifications absolutely horrify you.

You’re an extremely organised and logical person who others often turn to for advice.

People with smashed screens/no cases who have probably written more than one “I lost my phone, message me on here” Facebook status in their lifetime are NOT in your circle.

You might be a dad.

THE GLITTER PHONE CASE

You're fun. Maybe too fun. You're that friend who asks people out for "one drink" on a Wednesday night, but it's never one drink, is it?

It's many, many drinks at a night club until the early hours of the morning, and while you can always bounce back with the enthusiasm of a Labrador puppy the next morning, no one else can.

You always know where the cool bars are but you've probably been kicked out of a few.

You're a little kooky, but you're extremely popular and larger than life.

You love a selfie.

You buy fresh flowers for the house but no one ever notices.

You tell people you love Chef's Table and French films and books about war... but you secretly love The Bachelor, too.

You wear a smart watch.

You call pants "slacks".

THE ECO-FRIENDLY PHONE CASE

You hate wearing shoes, but you never use the word "hate".

You love Kombucha.

You are nice to everybody unless they forget their keep cup.

When you get drunk you give people lectures about climate change.

You love dogs, the beach, and dogs at the beach.

You listen to a lot of podcasts and you love to tell people about it.

THE HEAVY DUTY CASE

You're a lovable clutz who's trying really hard not to be.

You were always the kid who stepped in dog poo at the park in primary school.

You babysat all your parents' friend's kids in high school because kids adore you.

You always take blurry photos.

You once dropped your phone in the street and it got run over by a truck and then an eagle swooped down from the sky and picked it up with its talons and flew off into the distance, never to be seen again.

Your life has been considerably better since you bought the heavy duty phone case.

You always have your toenails done.

You have a #girlsquad and you love spring racing season.

Sometimes, when you've had too much wine, you ask your friends to dare you to do ridiculous things like eat 14 pieces of McDonald's cheese and when you see footage of it on Snapchat you wish you could crawl into a hole and die.

...So you buy yourself a new succulent to feel better about it.

You secretly applied for The Bachelor and lied to your friends about it.

You're a micro-influencer.

You have probably lost three phones in the past year.

...You are me.
