Julia Hormes and Juliette Bogsen, food behavior experts at the State University of New York at Albany and research firm Food-ology, respectively, investigated what the way people eat says about their personality. They analyzed different eating habits.
For example, a slow eater, a person who always sits at the table and takes a long time to eat his meal, is generally someone who likes to be in control and values life. But Hormuz says, “People who eat slowly can sometimes do this even when they are tired or not feeling well. Our mood is known to affect our eating speed,” Hormuz explains.
According to psychologists, fast eating is generally goal-oriented and ambitious. Fast eaters are often also open to new things. But, says Pogsen, “eating fast often gets impatient.”
Adventurous people at the table love to try new things and enjoy discovering new flavours. Not only are fast food eaters adventurous when it comes to food, but other areas as well. These people dare to take risks and love excitement and sensation. They like to get out of their comfort zone every now and then.”
Are you the kind of person who likes to eat what you know and regularly ask at a restaurant if a certain dish can be served without that crazy sauce? Then there’s a good chance you’ll be nervous and anxious, Hormuz and Bogoisin claim.
First the potatoes, then the vegetables, then the rest. People who eat one ingredient first before moving on to the other will put in the value and detail. They also think a lot about things and are generally very careful in the choices they make. Pogoisin: “He also shows a disciplined and often stubborn way of thinking.”
