Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Flip has a jock personality and has a great interest in sports and bodybuilding. Jock villagers are hyperactive and motivated, but often come across as self-centered and dense. As a jock villager, Flip is very interested in his hobby, and may compete against the player at catching bugs and fish. Jock villagers get along with peppy, cranky and sisterly villagers, but conflict with the laid-back lifestyle of lazy villagers. Snooty villagers may also be difficult to get along with for Flip.
In New Leaf, Flip's house has many Japanese-inspired items. From the Zen set, he has the hearth and a tea tansu. In the middle of his house, he has a kotatsu with yellow roses and a CD player next to it that plays K.K. Rally. He also has a taiko drum, extinguisher, eel, and a dharma from the Dharma set. Flip's flooring is Planked Tatami, and his initial wallpaper is the Shoji Screen.
In New Horizons, Flip's home resembles a street during cherry blossom season. In the center of his house, he has a dark-brown stall with red stripes, surrounded by two blossom-viewing lanterns from the Cherry blossoms series. Behind the stall, there's a lecture-hall desk with an espresso maker and dish-drying rack on top of it. In the back of his house, there's also a phone box, drink machine, utility sink, and a portable toilet. In the front of his house, he has a bamboo bench, bamboo stool, and bamboo speaker from the Bamboo series. He plays K.K. Disco on his bamboo speaker. For wallpaper, Flip uses the the Cherry-Blossom-Trees Wall, and for flooring, he uses the Gravel Flooring.
