Without thinking, often a particular flavor is used to describe a person. According to a recent study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, those who prefer sweet foods are usually more pleasant, friendly, compassionate and supportive, compared to those who opt for bitter and sour foods, according to Cukmi
Michael D. Robinson, a researcher at the University of North Dakota , says that there is a link between the food we consume and pro-social behavior. The analysis was performed to different groups of students who chose their food at random and then evaluated their ways of behaving.
For analysis, 55 college students tested foods from the five basic tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and spicy. Also answered a series of questions related to your personal tastes.In another experiment, they were given fresh food and other salty, then asked a teacher to help voluntarily. The result was that students who ate sweets showed more willingness to help another group comparison, according to the website Bodyodd .
