The next time you are out at the bar keep an eye out for all those Gin and Tonic drinkers.
According to Canoe.com… what drink you order at the bar may say more about you than you think. For example, if you tend to favour gin and tonic, you may be a psychopath.
Researchers at Innsbruck University found that people who enjoy bitter flavours – like gin and tonic, black coffee and dark chocolate – are more prone to “Machiavellianism, psychoticism and narcissism.”
The Austrian study surveyed more than 900 men and woman. Participants were given a list of foods and beverages and asked to rate them out of six. They were also given a personality questionnaire.
The participants who favoured bitter foods exhibited more psychotic tendencies.
“The results of both studies confirmed the hypothesis that bitter taste preferences are positively associated with malevolent personality traits, with the most robust relation to everyday sadism and psychopathy,” the researchers said.
