Can Mexican food preference indicate personality? Love matches?
Are you a taco Ted or a burrito Bill? It could be an important question. A study has just been conducted that links people’s favorite Mexican food to personality traits and relationship compatibility. Sort of a stretch, right? But if this thing is accurate and the film Demolition Man is a clear indication of the future (note: in Demolition Man all restaurants are Taco Bells in the future) then psychology may soon become obsolete. Dr. Alan Hirsch of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation directed the survey and will be pretty upset if you don’t take this seriously. Check out a few examples:
Taco: “People who prefer tacos are conscientious and perfectionists and are ideal workers. On the job they take over, accomplishing monumental tasks. They are the master of their domain and can become so engrossed in work that they are often forced to sacrifice time with family and friends.” And are compatible with mates that prefer quesadillas.
Burrito: “Burrito lovers are dramatic and love being the center of attention. They crave novelty, excitement and stimulation, and are seductive and flirtatious in romance and gregarious, witty, and charming in social situations. Neither shy nor subdued, they readily display their emotions. At work they are easily bored with usual routines and have a keen sense of new and up-and-coming trends.” Burrito Bobs are more or less compatible with everyone.
Nachos: “Finally, people who prefer nachos are shy, quiet, reserved and introverted. They are secure enough about their own identity that, to a great extent, they are oblivious to what others think of them. They are self-sufficient and most productive when allowed to work alone, uninterrupted.” These folks are often lone wolves.
This really clears up a lot of things for us. We always heard that clothes made the man when instead it’s the fajitas.
Keep in mind that this study was done on behalf of a Mexican food chain. Check out more about the ‘study’…
