Study Finds Preference for Bitter Coffee Related to Psychopathy

Study Finds Preference for Bitter Coffee Related to Psychopathy:  Researchers at the University of Innsbruck in Austria found that people who prefer bitter tastes such as drinking their coffee black - have been associated with malevolent personality traits, especially sadism and psychopathy.

Now I don’t know so much about all that, but I do know that I’m pretty likely to exhibit psychopathic traits before I have my morning coffee.  And to be completely honest, I do admit that I normally prefer drinking my coffee black - in fact, right out of a mug I’ve crafted from of an actual human skull.  Do you suppose that’s a bad sign?  Gee, wonder if I’d make a better impression if I tossed a half packet of Splenda into the mix?

But the truth be known, the real reason I prefer my morning coffee black is so I don’t have to feel so guilty about the four donuts I chug down along with the coffee.  Now my suggestion is, if you seriously feel concerned that you prefer that morning coffee black, then simply switch to beer - problem solved!  Now, can we please move on to that new research about whether Starbucks is adding steroids to their coffee to make it stronger?

I’m curious what other foods are related to psychopathy. White Zinfandel, perhaps. Mustard on hamburgers. Ketchup on hotdogs.

Excellent list my friend.  Publish it now and save lives (lol).

I'm really an odd-duck for a blue-collar redneck in that I much prefer tea to coffee  For starters, I've never had a cup of burnt tea, but I've had to drink some very burnt coffee – McDonalds is criminal offender in that regard. With a cup of hot water and a tea bag on the side, I can brew my tea exactly as strong as I like – which is not very. My wife is the coffee drinker, but she drinks hers heavily laced with half'n'half. As far as I'm aware, neither of us is a psychopath.

Still, we're gonna have to keep a close eye on you Tom, just to be sure (lol).

Thank God for the Half’n’half. That’s what saves you. Also, when I drink coffee, which isn’t often, that’s what saves me.
