Your Coffee Fits Your Personality Type?

September 4th, 2018

A story published in Inc. Magazine summarizes various research that claims how you take your coffee tells others a lot about your personality type. Oh really?

If you take sugar in your coffee, a study by the Journal of Personality and Social Psycology found that your sweet tooth is more than that: In fact, you’re likely to be agreeable, social and friendly.  The study claims it’s much more likely that you’re a trusted confidante and supportive co-worker.

Needs milk in your coffee, or prefer caffe lattes? Professor Durvasula of California State University, and the author of the book You are Why You Eat, thinks you’re much more likely to be people who go out of their way to help others.

She also states that decaf people attempt to change the natural order of coffee. In her view, that can indicate tendencies of attempts to control and an obsession with details.

What about people who mix their coffee? Half this and half that? Juliet Boghossian, founder of Food-ology claims it’s an indicator of someone who has trouble managing or choosing tasks, and may be more prone to procrastination.

Drink your coffee black? Black coffee couldn’t be simpler, skipping all the accessories. But findings from the University Of Innsbruck claim they’re more likely to find pleasure in the misfortune of others. We (as I’m in this coffee-type group) are likely to be the people who enjoy others getting called out for minor infractions.

What do I do now? Nothing about my indicators, because of my black coffee preference, are accurate. But would it make me nicer if I switched to cream or sugar, instead? Next coffee break, look around at the people on your team. Does any of this coffee-analysis match the Color of your teammate?
