Dr. Spencer Reid’s Likes / Dislikes

I’m incredibly bored again and have decided that I want to come up with a list of things we have seen on the show that Reid likes / dislikes.

So far we know  he dislikes:

  • Being handcuffed and beaten
  • Being forcibly drugged against his will
  • Being abandoned
  • Being rejected
  • Narcotics (although this could also be a like in that he was addicted)
  • Feeling inadequate or “like a baby”
  • Not being able to save someone
  • Morons who post blogs called “What Would Carl Sagan Do”
  • Bullies
  • Adults who make excuses for bullies and do nothing to protect the victims
  • Going paperless
  • Shaking hands with strangers (who knows where they’ve been?)
  • Creamed spinach
  • Chopsticks (the actual items, not the song/music)
  • Suggestions that he is not mentally stable
  • Headaches
  • The beach because of the sand that gets into food, “pink skin”, and bacteria in seagull feces.
  • Medicine-resistant bacteria (he considers this to be one of the biggest problems in the world today)

So far we know that he likes: 

  • Being hugged by team members (especially JJ)
  • Blonde women with blue eyes— although he has been caught gawking at brunettes as well
  • Halloween
  • Reading
  • Chess
  • Classical Music
  • Cheating at cards
  • Women’s breasts (this was never stated but he took some good looks at JJ, Elle, and Prentiss).
  • His mother (ok, he adores his mommy)
  • Rice crispy treats
  • Snack food
  • Coffee
  • Sugar
  • Playing Piano
  • Dairy (even if he may be lactose intolerant)
  • Indian food (specifically chicken tandoori) 
  • Donuts
  • Science fiction (Star Trek, Star Wars, and Doctor Who)
  • Science
  • Technical manuals
  • Medical research
  • Math
  • Engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Horses (as evidenced by pictures in his childhood room in “Memoriam”)
  • Literature
  • Magic tricks
  • Sharing information

Feel free to reblog and add other ideas. I may amend my post to include them. Comments and discussions are welcome.
