Have a Favourite Snack? Here's What It Says About Your Personality, According to Science

We all need to eat food. Whether we do it out of boredom, emotional turmoil, to pass the time, share a meal with a loved one, or simply due to hunger, food is an inseparable part of our lives. But did you know that the way we decide what to eat isn’t completely random? There are a lot of health factors, of course, and even hormones can make you crave a huge portion of gelato over anything else, but our personality also has a say in this.

According to science, everything is connected and what we eat impacts the way we behave, and vice versa, our personality impacts our food choices. Here’s what your favourite snack says about you.

Yummy Chocolate

Are you one of those people who can’t live a day without eating at least one piece of chocolate? Well, we have good news for you. Apart from the fact that too many sweets aren’t very healthy for your body, personality-wise you are an amazing person to be around. According to one research, people with a sweet tooth tend to be more empathetic, compassionate, kind, and caring.  They are friendly and tend to be more open to meeting new people and making friends with them. When it comes to helping someone in need, sweet-eaters would be the first ones to react. They also like volunteering work and have pleasant personalities all in all.

Ambitious Potato Chips

Potato chip-lovers are the ultimate go-getters. I kid you not! There must be something about the huge salty bag of chips that indicates that a person is an over-achiever and likes to be in charge. People who love potato chips above all other snacks are ambitious and driven to be successful in life. If you ask top CEOs about their favourite snack their answer would probably be somewhere between potato chips and spicy potato chips (because they also like to take risks to reach their goals as fast as possible).

Perfect Tortilla Chips

Tortilla chips are also chips, technically, but the people who like them are a totally different bunch if you compare them to potato chips-eaters. According to research, people who choose tortilla chips above all other snacks like things to be in order. They are perfectionists who would work hard to get what they want, whether it’s a project at work or personal relationships. They kind of expect everyone to be this way and that can be hard for the people around them sometimes.

Spicy Tacos and Chili Foods

People who like eating spicy foods are big risk-takers. It’s only natural, don’t you think? If you like your food spicy, you are more likely to be drawn towards ‘spicy’ experiences that will have your adrenaline levels hit the sky. Well, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are an adrenaline junkie, but you are probably one of those active people who would rather say yes to an unusual adventure than stay at home and watch TV. If you feel like you need to slow down a bit, it’s good to stay away from those spicy tacos for some time.

Romantic Crackers

Cracker-lovers are gentle and caring people who like to daydream a lot. They have a very romantic nature and, according to studies, they are the ones that are drawn to online dating the most. Who would have thought that crackers would end up the most romantic type of snack on the list? If you love crunchy crackers more than anything else, you are a creative person, but more often than not you need time and personal space to let that creativity bloom into something beautiful.
