Researchers Reveal What Drinking Black Coffee Says About You

“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.” – Christina Sagioglou & Tobias Greitemeyer

“Um… I’m not a psychopath?”

Let’s state the obvious, so there are no misunderstandings. If you drink black coffee, there’s a very good chance your mental health is fine and dandy.

There are plenty of people who enjoy tar-colored java – and they’re good people

The research team from the University of Innsbruck (Austria), agrees with my sentiments stated above. That said…

There is a stronger correlation between people who drink (and eat) bitter beverages and foods – and the darker personality traits.

Here’s a bit about the study:

– 953 adults; 52% male, 48% female; Average age: about 36.

– Published January 2016 in the journal Appetite

– Measures include self-reported surveys (“likability of food names”) and personality assessments.
