Coffee is the absolute nectar of the Gods. It can officially save you when you haven’t had quite enough sleep and need to complete an entire day of work, or if you’re anything like me it can turn you from an absolute morning troll into a delight.
While obviously too much caffeine is bad for you, coffee generally hasn’t ever been linked to being bad – until a recent study brought to light something pretty interesting. Apparently, if you like your coffee black – then you’re most likely to be a psychopath. Hmm.
Brought to light by a study undertaken by the University of Innsbruck in Austria, it focused on a control group of 953 American adults, whose average age was about 35.
The results, which were published in the journal Appetite, revealed that the participants who reported enjoying foods with a bitter taste were more likely to report “malevolent personality traits” – even when sweet, sour and salty tastes were involved.
