SAN ANTONIO (WOAI/KABB) - A new study from the University of Innsbruck in Austria said that black coffee drinkers often have psychopathic and sadistic traits.

Researchers conducting the study investigated how bitter taste preferences might be associated with anti-social personality traits. In two U.S. American community samples, 953 people self-reported their taste preferences and answered personality questionnaires assessing Machiavellianism, psychopathy, narcissism, everyday sadism, trait aggression, and the Big Five factors of personality.

The report shows that the results confirmed the hypothesis that bitter taste performances are positively associated with sadism and psychopathy traits.

"The data thereby provide novel insights into the relationship between personality and the ubiquitous behaviors of eating and drinking by consistently demonstrating a robust relation between increased enjoyment of bitter foods and heightened sadistic proclivities." the study said.
