People Who Drink Black Coffee Are Likely To Have This

Coffee is a staple for millions, if not billions. But people who drink black coffee are likely to have this tendency. An Australian study published in the journal Appetite found that people with bitter tastes have higher odds of exhibiting psychopathy and “everyday sadism,” which is a terrifying phrase.

Researchers gathered this data by surveying 500 men and women and then showing them images of food and drinks labeled as bitter, sweet, salty and sour. These participants were asked to rate these images on a six point scale and to later complete some personality questionnaires. The tests analyzed different characteristics such as aggressiveness, personality traits like psychopathy and narcissism, and “Big Five” personality traits like openness, neuroticism, agreeableness, and more.

“General taste preferences—unlike preferences for specific food items—develop very early in life. Moreover, these early taste experiences are likely to influence taste preferences throughout the life span,” explains the study.

Results found that people with bitter preferences are “positively associated with malevolent personality traits, with the most robust relation to everyday sadism and psychopathy.” Phew, you’ll never look at coffee the same way anymore.

Black coffee has been associated with various health benefits. It is a significant source of polyphenols and phenolic acids, which act as antioxidants and can help reduce the risk of heart disease, inflammatory diseases, and cancer Moderate coffee consumption has also been linked to a reduced risk of Parkinson’s disease, cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Additionally, black coffee may help improve brain function, cognition, gut health, and aid in weight loss

Many people enjoy the stimulating effects of caffeine found in black coffee. Caffeine can help increase alertness, improve focus, and provide an energy boost. It can also enhance athletic performance and improve reaction times, memory, and visual-spatial reasonin

Sadly, it’s not all good news for us sweet coffee drinkers. The study’s list of bitter tastes includes drinks like tonic water and beer, so we could be psychopaths too.
