There is another thread relating sax pitch to personality type, but I think there is another consideration: Some people just look like they play a certain instrument. Do you?

Me? I MUST be a bari player, and it has always been my favorite to play.

When I first started playing alto suited me I'm sure, cause when I first got a tenor it looked too big on me, but I feel I've grown into it and since high school it's what looks best on me.

Although I play plenty of tenor, bari, and sop, I still consider myself an alto player.

What hair I have remaining is red, and according to another thread, redheads don't look like sax players, soooo, If I looked like a sax player, I'd look like an old red-headed one. If you've seen any old red-headed saxes, let me know.

A graying,slowing down,seen better days sax player
Tenor is my 1st love but alto & sop are great too
One develops different sound concepts & approaches for various horns
For me it is hard to beat a tenor's guts

Well, people say I look like a clarinet player...then they just gasp when I say I play the alto and bari sax.

As long as I don't look like Kenny G, I'm fine. I play Alto mostly because my tenor isn't really fixable (been dropped too many times, but I can't complain, it was free!). Most people who watch me play think I'm using a soprano.
