As Americans there’s no doubt that we eat tons of junk food yearly. That’s why I turned to one of my sources of information Dr. Alan Hirsch from the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, you’ve heard me speak of him before, sometimes regarding the Impossible Question or passing along tidbits of information I feel will be useful to you.

Dr. Hirsch conducted an 8-year study with 800 volunteers and claims the results show that people’s snack food preferences reveal their personality type. He says the link between food preferences and personality is much like a Rorschach ink blot test long used by psychologists for insight into personality. Here’s the true meaning of all that junk food you eat

Pretzels mean you’re a flirt and you’re very lively and energetic.

Cheese curls mean you have great integrity and maintain a high moral ground.

Potato chips mean you are aggressive, a real go-getter who will not take no for an answer.

Tortilla chips mean you’re a perfectionist. An “A” is not good enough for you. It has to be an “A+.”

Beef jerky means you’re the life of the party.

Now you didn’t think there would be anything significant to this study did you?  After all it’s junk food.
