A new study claims to be able to determine your personality based on the way that you eat your eggs.
Based on answers provided by over 1,000 people, scientists believe they have uncovered a statistical relationship between the way in which eggs are cooked and a variety of different personality traits. The results suggested that poached egg eaters are more likely to be outgoing and positive, boiled egg fans are disorganised, scrambled egg eaters are guarded and those who prefer fried eggs tend to have a higher sex drive.
Commissioned by the British Egg Industry Council the study also revealed other traits relating to lifestyle choices and gender. More woman than men are said to be fans of poached eggs while fried egg eaters are more likely to be young males. Boiled egg eaters are more likely to be careless and impulsive while scrambled egg eaters are more likely to have a senior-level job and to own their own home.
"Using sophisticated maths and a process known as data mining, scientists have uncovered a statistical relationship between a person's character, lifestyle and social class and whether they like their eggs boiled, fried, scrambled or as an omelette."
