According to Chinese medicine, certain foods are appropriate to specific
personality types. People in whom yin predominates (serene, introverted,
cool people) achieve balance by eating hot foods including meats and
heavy grains, while those who are more yang (active, outgoing, hot
types) need more cooling foods like raw fruits and vegetables.
This is a gross simplification of an entire system of oriental medicine,
but it points out that people have long believed food preference and
personality type are linked. Today, I (jokingly) present the American
equivalent of these notions: What your favorite junk food reveals about
you. Without further ado…
*Potato chip* lovers are successful high achievers who enjoy the rewards
and trimmings of their success, both in business and in family life.
Contemplative and thoughtful, people who prefer *snack crackers* base
their decisions on logic rather than emotions.
Gregarious and social, those who reach for a savory bag of pork rinds or
crave beef jerky and other *meat snacks* are often the life of the
party. They are loyal and true friends who can always be trusted.
Lively and energetic, *pretzel* fans seek novelty and thrive in the
world of abstract concepts. They often lose interest in mundane,
Perfectionists in regard to their own actions and to the community at
large, people who crave *tortilla chips* are humanitarians who are often
distressed by the inequities and
injustices of society.
Formal, conscientious, and always proper, the *cheese curl* lover can be
described with one word: integrity. They will always maintain moral high
ground with their family, work, and romantic partners.
Funny, isn't it? And yet, it's not a joke. There's an actual research
institute that did an actual scientific study to come up with these
conclusions. More on that from the source of this delightful info:
