You are What you Drink?

"You are What you Drink?" The University of Manitoba has published a study asserting that your choice of tipple could provide insight on your personality. Perhaps we will finally have some answers to the questions posed in this thread.

Does it seem to anyone else that this looks like some College Freshmen would turn in at the last minute for his psych 101 midterm? Were you saying to yourself, "MOTHERFUCKING DUH" after every paragraph?

Put the bottle down, Stan.

Was surprised by the neuroticism of beer drinkers.

Where's Miguel?

It appears that the study corroborates some stereotypes and common sense. There's some interesting speculation about the links between heart disease, personality and the type of alcohol consumed. That's a valid avenue of research. What if it turns out that wine drinkers have healthier cardiovascular systems because they have Type B personalities, not because they're wine drinkers?

Of much greater importance is figuring what kind of drink you are.

Thanks fenriq, that was a laugh!

Congratulations on being manly (if you're a man), but you know you can get just as drunk on shots without drinking so much, don't you?
Congratulations!! You're a tall glass of nice cold
beer!

I'm a black velvet.

As for the original study, I'm kinda with Stan on this. Studies on alcohol just seem like an excuse to justify drinking at work: "Honest boss, I'm, uh, doing research..." ;)
