Drinking Black Coffee

By March 13, 2019Neil Morrison

A Week or so ago Leah and I talked about all the great things coffee does to help we as human beings. A study from 2011 shows that drinking coffee lowers the risk of depression or suicide, increases Mental sharpness and Brain Health, helping long term memory, focusing, reaction times and reasoning. It is also known to help fight Alzheimer’s and Diabetes. 

Those are the great things about coffee. 

According to lostmisfits.com, the headline reads, ‘Science Says Black Coffee Drinkers Are Psychopaths.’

A study of 500 people showed that those who enjoyed bitter flavours over sweet flavours were more likely to exhibit signs of psychopathy, narcissism, and everyday sadism.

The study found a significant correlation between those displaying more antisocial personality traits and those that liked bitter tastes, particularly flavours like coffee, beer, tonic water and radishes.

If you enjoy milky and sugary coffee, you aren’t really a fan of bitterness and you are more likely to show ‘agreeable; tendencies such as kindness, sympathy and cooperativeness.

Other studies have found that people who like spicy foods and caffeinated drinks are more likely to be “sensation seeking.”

But that co-worker of yours who drinks their coffee black? 

Psychopath. 

The internet says so so it must be true.
