How do you like to eat your eggs ?

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."

I like to eat my eggs with a fork. You win ten interwebs for the best answer! (As for me, I like deviled eggs or any other manner in which the egg itself is disguised, because just plain eggs gross me out.)

What.... Sunny side up, over easy, over medium, over hard, scrambled, omlette, hard boiled, deviled eggs.... I like em all the same and have no real preference. What do eggs say about me? I'm a schizophrenic apparently.

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. In the new study, the research team found that poached egg eaters are outgoing, listen to upbeat music and are happier, boiled egg consumers are disorganised, fried egg fans have a high sex drive, scrambled egg aficionados are guarded and omelette eaters are self-disciplined. http://www.telegraph...ality-type.html Who thinks up these studies!

She ate watermelon with salt . i cannot imagine eating watermelon at all, never mind putting salt on it. i used to put salt on rhubarb as a kid though and still do sometimes on tart apples. just thought i'd mention that i had eggs and toast for dinner tonight. over medium.

when i eat an egg raw i have to put it in something like a smoothie, blend it with something else ( strawberries, blueberries and bananas with ice blended with an egg) I like them raw but they gag me if i don't blend them up. they tell me it isn't safe to drink them that way but i've been doing it for over 35 years, watermelons on the other hand should be plain, but my dad eats them with salt and pepper to.

What about those who don't eat eggs like me?!?!?... Good question. There are those who simply don't like the taste of eggs and then there are those who refuse to support modern agricultural practices as shown in this video below. It is common business practice in egg producing plants to discard the male chicks who are worthless. The standard method is to grind them all up while still alive.
