There are different types of coffee to choice from like Latte, Espresso, Cappuccino, Black and a lot more. However those who prefers black coffee over typical coffee choices might be a psychopath.

A recent study from the University of Innsbruck in Austria saw a trend which indicated a correlation between black coffee preference and sadistic or psychopathic personality traits. In this study there were 1,000 adults asked with their flavor preferences.

Aside from that, they were also asked to take four different personality tests which assessed traits like narcissism, psychopathy, sadism, and aggression.

They also found out that people who loved milky or sugary coffee, and other sweet flavors were more likely to have more good personality traits like sympathy, cooperation, and kindness.

The closest relationship found within the study was between bitter foods and 'everyday sadism' or the pleasure of inflicting moderate pain unto others.

But no worries for black coffee lovers. The researches made it clear that 'bitter' was more of a subjective term that may have been a limitation with their study. Furthermore, there is an underlying uncertainty as to what connects bitter tastes and disagreeable personality traits.

A psychology professor at the Roosevelt University dived into the study of health to examine its truthfulness. Wherein he found a 'very small connection' between bitter taste and bad personality traits.

The finding for these kinds of studies must be interpreted with large precaution for it might create confusion or chaos for others.

It's still better to know the person first than judging him/her by coffee preference. Everyone else was molded through cultures, environment, traditions and values thus no coffee preference can simply point out whether he/she has a nasty attitude.
