What does your favourite snack say about you?
May not be 100% accurate for you in particular, but it's supported by a large scientific study sample. And it makes quite a lot of sense!
Our eating habits have long been known to be a pretty accurate indication about the way we think, but a deeper study among ~20 000 people from all over the globe has been recently released and the results are curious to say the least. The objective of that study was to tie people's snacking habits with their personality traits and behaviour, so there was a lot of psychology involved to back every claim. And the results, already peer-reviewed, are quite fascinating. So what can food tell us about . . us?
