Why Drinking Black Coffee Might Mean You're Totally Cray

Here's a major reason to reassess your coffee-drinking habit. According to The Huffington Post, a recent study published in the journal Appetite claims that people who drink black coffee have an awful lot in common with psychopaths. Hmm...so does this explain the totally cray behavior that tends to take place when someone doesn't get their morning cup of joe?

Well, not exactly. Researchers at the University of Innsbruck of Austria found that from the 1,000 people who took part in the study, those who had a preference for the bitter black brew and foods with similar acrid tastes achieved noticeably higher scores on a questionnaire that identifies Machiavellianism. In layman's terms, it refers to an individual whose personality is about as dark as their black coffee preference, and is more likely to be accompanied by a healthy dose of psychopathic, narcissistic and sadistic tendencies.

Sheesh, and we thought folks who preferred to skip the cream and sugar just had some majorly tough taste buds. As it turns out, it's a little more serious (and scary!) than a taste preference. As HuffPo states, taste preferences don't always remain the same, so we'll hold off on side-eyeing anyone who downs a cup of black in our presence — for now.
