Meteorology is the branch of science that studies the atmosphere as a means of predicting the weather. Meteorologists are the people you see on the evening news laying out the conditions for the next few days, and the people reporting the data for weather apps. But who predicts the weather of your life? Your parents I'm sure know what kind of mood you will be in, when, and why you are in that certain mood. But moods are different from your personality. You can't base a whole personality on just a few days of a certain mood or certain actions.
Basically, just because you are sad a lot doesn't mean that describes your personality or defines you as a person. Your personality is based off behavior in multiple scenarios and studying how you react in a variety of situations. Some studies even go as far as hooking you up to machines and showing a series of photos and measuring how your body reacts to them. Once a personality is established and figured out, you can take that and figure out what kind of weather matches your personality. You know, for science reasons. Or, you can take this quiz and we'll tell you what kind of weather matches your personality!
