Yeah, they'll pretty much authorize a study on anything these days.

This study says people who prefer bitter tastes like dark chocolate, IPA beer, black coffee, etc, exhibit more anti-social behavior patterns than people who like sweet stuff. The University of Innsbruck study consisted of 1,000, 30-somethings who rated different food and drink items from 1 (didn't like it) to 6 (loved it). Then, they were given tests to evaluate their personalities.

“bitter taste preferences are positively associated with malevolent personality traits, with the most robust relation to everyday sadism and psychopathy.”

"Everyday sadism and psychopathy?" What a relief. It's those "only on Tuesday sadists and psychopaths" you gotta watch! If you want to know which of your friends are anti-social psychos, here's a much simpler plan. Bring them all out to Oktobeerfest and see who orders the IPA.

Then, you'll know!
