Restaurant Psychology

Do you think the way you order food at a restaurant says something about your personality? Can it tell you at least a little bit about someone if food is ordered with "I'd like . . . " or "I'll have . . . " or "Bring me . . . " or "Could I get . . . "? Because I think so. I don't know quite what it would say, though. I try to say "I'd like" because it sounds more polite and less demanding. My sister, on the other hand, always orders with "I'll have", which sounds a bit to me like she's commanding the waitress* around. Any thoughts?

*I think it's been quite a long time since we've had a waiter at a restaurant instead of a waitress. Now that I think about it, that's quite odd.
