July 6, 2019 Updated: July 8, 2019

Do you eat lunch with your work colleagues? Do you chow down on dinner with your family? You’ve probably noticed that we’ve all got our own unique style when it comes to eating our food. Some people hate to share, some people pretty much inhale their food, and others take their time, cutting everything into bite-sized portions.

Eating is instinctive. So, it may not surprise you to learn that the way you eat can reveal numerous tasty little morsels (see what we did there?) about your personality. Inspired by India Times, ask yourself: “What type of eater am I?”

1. Slow eaters

Envy the slow eater! You truly know how to live in the present, and won’t be rushed. The slow eater works at a leisurely pace and is beautifully connected to their partner in a relationship. On the other hand, you are a real sucker for routines.

2. Fast eaters

You may forego chewing in order to put away as much food as possible. In life, much like at the table, you have a voracious appetite. Fast eaters are really great at getting things done, and thus are popular at work. Multi-tasking makes you tick. Just remember to think of yourself!

3. “Get off, it’s mine!” eaters

If you don’t like others touching your food, then you are a bit of a neat freak. You are a very able employee and a responsible, egalitarian partner in relationships. But don’t get stressed; remember to unwind every now and again.

4. Adventurous eaters

If you love new food, then you love new experiences of all kinds. Adventurous eaters are never boring, and you always keep your friends on their toes. You really think outside the box at work and your personality is magnetic. Your unique approach to life will take you to the top, so keep doing what you’re doing!

5. One-thing-at-a-time eaters

If you like to eat only one thing at a time, then you are a pretty methodical thinker. You may be a perfectionist, which means your organization is highly appreciated by your friends and co-workers. However, relationships may suffer because of your rigid thinking. Be open to suggestion.

6. Eclectic eaters

If you love to mix your foods, then you’re pretty open to taking on responsibility. You will adopt numerous tasks at once and somehow find the time for all of them. Just be sure not to overcommit.

7. Cutter-uppers

If you like to cut your food into bitesize pieces, then you’re probably an organized thinker. You are goal-oriented and not afraid to work hard to achieve your ambitions. Relationship-wise, you are always looking for deep meaning.

8. Picky eaters

Does the phrase “comfort zone” mean anything to you? It should do! It’s your happy place; as a picky eater, you are not fond of change. Your relationships are often long-term and you love to be known inside-out. However, you do crave knowledge, so use that fact to encourage your more adventurous side.

9. Conscious eaters

If you’re a person who likes to read the ingredients and knows the calorie content of all your meals, then you are not particularly open to new experiences. Your orderly and organized side can come in extremely useful, but don’t let it overtake your ability to have fun.

10. Dessert lovers

People with a sweet tooth will be delighted to learn that you are calm and kindhearted folk! You are wonderful listeners and will likely have a close-knit group of friends. You are always ready to lend an ear to other people’s problems. (Friendly word of advice: make sure they listen to you, too.)

11. Salt lovers

Salt lovers are outspoken people. If you love salt, then you are fearless, and the world had better brace itself because you are not afraid to speak up! You have some marvelous thoughts and ideas to share.

12. Lovers of bitter food

If you love bitter food, then you may have a judgmental side to your personality. You can be a little reluctant to forge new connections and often jump to pessimistic conclusions. Luckily, you’re softer underneath.

13. Spice lovers

Do you relish spicy food? You’re probably a bit of a risk taker. You are also changeable; you can go from sweetness and light to ferocious in mere seconds, but it’s sometimes all for the drama. You’re always dependable in a crisis.

14. Sour food lovers

People who are fond of sour food march to the beat of their own drum. They truly find joy in the little things and can be almost naive in their innocent approach to the world. Sour food lovers are loved by everyone around them.
