Like Your Coffee Black? Probably a PsychoPath.


I don’t even drink coffee, so I guess people will have to perform another test to find out if I’m a psychopath or not, but for those of you who swear by Starbuck’s (y’all may not be pyschopaths, but definitely annoying), according to a new study, it will be fairly easy to tell if you’re a certified nut job.

A just-in-time-for-Halloween study published in the journal Appetite revealed that people who like their coffee black are more likely to possess anti-social and psychopathic personality traits.  The research, which comes from the University of Innsbruck in Austria, examined the taste preferences of about 1,000 people, finding those who preferred more bitter notes in foods like black coffee scored higher on a series personality questionnaires that assessed Machiavellianism, a term used in psychology to describe personalities that are dark, psychopathic, narcissistic and sadistic. 


Also, the study concluded that participants who reported a fondness for other bitter foods like radishes, celery and tonic water (weirdos) were more likely to exhibit psychopathic traits.

Interesting. So the next time I go on a “coffee date” I’, obviously going to have to pay closer attention.
