A study has found that people who drink certain types of coffee share common attributes.
If you drink a latte, or add milk to your coffee, then you are likely to go out of your way to help others whereas if you prefer to drink decaffeinated coffee you are more likely to be obsessive and controlling.
Clinical psychologist Dr Ramani Durvasula conducted a study of 1,000 coffee drinkers and assessed a number of common personality styles and psychological traits.
These include introversion and extroversion; patience; perfectionism; warmth; vigilance; sensitivity; and social boldness, among others.
Black coffee drinkers were found to be “purist’ and prefer to keep things simple. They were found to be patient and simple but also set in their ways and resistant to making changes.
