Individual differences in bitter taste preferences are associated with antisocial personality traits

 

Highlights

 

• Bitter taste preferences are positively associated with antisocial personality traits.
• Bitter taste preferences most robustly predict everyday sadism.
• Results suggest close relationship between the gustatory system and personality.
 

 

Abstract

In two studies, we investigated how bitter taste preferences might be associated with antisocial personality traits. Two US American community samples (total N = 953; mean age = 35.65 years; 48% females)
self-reported their taste preferences using two complementary preference measures and answered a number of personality questionnaires assessing Machiavellianism, psychopathy, narcissism, everyday sadism, trait aggression, and the Big Five factors of personality. The results of both studies confirmed the hypothesis that bitter taste preferences are positively associated with malevolent personality traits, with the most robust relation to everyday sadism and psychopathy. Regression analyses confirmed that this association holds when controlling for sweet, sour, and salty taste preferences and that bitter taste references are the overall strongest predictor compared to the other taste preferences. The data thereby provide novel insights into the relationship between personality and the ubiquitous behaviors of eating and drinking by consistently demonstrating a robust relation between increased enjoyment of bitter foods and heightened sadistic proclivities.

It would make more sense if bitter taste preferences were related to masochism, no?

I had to look up that bottom one.

I never answer these things with anything but "agree" or "disagree".  I don't get the "strongly".  Either you agree or you don't.  In any case, for what it's worth, the result indicates I'm not Machiavelli's sort of guy.

Me neither. Actually, I see this as being more a test for sociopathic personality traits than about Maciavelli. I

 

I like my women bitter. I prefer my coffee black and strong but deceptively mild tasting.

Either you agree or you don't.  

 

I'm kinda leaning in support of that view.

There's probably no doubt in my mind that being wrong is better than being wishy washy.
