What flavour are you?

Good morning everyone,

Ok...so that was the wettest ride home I've had in a while. It better let up by this morning because I'm counting on getting out for a 15-17km run! Actually, it's supposed to clear up throughout the day and we should see some sun late in the morning or early afternoon. Monday will also be nice and then it'll cloud over on Tuesday and, depending on what the typhoon does, we may some rain the middle of the week. Highs will be around 29C or 30C for the week.

So, it's generally accepted that there are six flavours (technically there is 'umami' as well, but it hasn't been universally recognized yet)-spicy, sweet, savory (savory may not be 'universal' either...), salty and bitter. And apparently you are what you eat...ha ha!

Which are you?

Are you a sweet-eater? Do you like chocolate, maple syrup or ice cream? If you do, then you are.
sweet foods
What does that mean? Well, if you like you sweets you tend to be more cooperative and agreeable. Studies have shown that people who eat sweets are more likely to volunteer their time than those who don't eat sweets. I knew I was sweet! I'm agreeable and cooperative! Ha ha!

Or are you a spicy person? Do you like wasabi, chili peppers and horseradish? If you do, then you are.
spicy foods
What does that mean? Well, if you like spicy foods you might be adventurous. People who like spicy foods are thrill-seekers and take more risks than people who eat bland foods. I love spicy foods so I must be a risk taker!

Or are you more savoury? Do you like pizza, bacon and steak? If you do, then you are.
savoury foods
What does that mean? Well, if you like savoury foods, you might be outgoing. The fats and proteins often found in savoury foods trigger memories of social times with family and friends and people who enjoy these foods often enjoy them in a social setting. I knew I was a social guy! I love bacon and pizza!

Or are you salty? Do you like pretzels, French fries and potato chips? If you do, then you are.
 salty foods
What does that mean? Well, if you like salty foods you are probably easy-going. Salt attracts water so you may like to just 'go with the flow'. Hey! I love salty foods too! And I'm easy-going!

Or are you bitter? Do you like coffee, beer or some bitter vegies like cauliflower? If you do, then you are.
What does that mean? Well, if you like bitter foods then you might be a bit judgmental. Ahh...I knew there was a reason why I didn't like bitter foods! Ha ha! So, if you are going to a social event, it might be a good idea to avoid cranberry juice and stick with something sweet instead. You may enjoy yourself more!

I must admit that I'm a bit of all of the flavours...well, except for maybe 'umami', but does it even count?! Ha ha!

Which are you? Do you agree with the conclusion of the study? I don't know how scientific it was, but it seems reasonably accurate, if you ask me!

Have a great day!
