I know, I know. You likely read the title of this post and said to yourself, ‘what in the literal hell?’ which is a rather understandable thought. Peanut butter is a delightful concoction many of us make use of on a daily basis, but it isn’t exactly something that we associate with personality and its traits, normally speaking.
However, according to an article from The Good News Network, your choice of peanut butter could be an indication of far more than your nut butter consistency preference.
“The poll examined the peanut butter and snacking preferences of 2,000 Americans—evenly split by their preference of crunchy vs. creamy—and found enjoying a crunchy peanut butter may make you have a cheerier outlook on life.
“Sixty-three percent of those who prefer crunchy peanut butter describe themselves as optimists, compared to 56% of those who prefer creamy.
“Other personality traits for creamy fans included being more of an early bird and more introverted—whereas their crunchy counterparts were more likely to be night owls and extroverts,” the article says.
And that’s not all. Apparently, some of us are very dedicated to our preferred form of peanut butter.
“Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Jif, the survey found that a third of all respondents described themselves as ‘extremely’ passionate about their peanut butter preference.
“Americans are so passionate, in fact, that rather than asking your date what they do for a living or where they’ll see themselves in five years—you may want to ask about their peanut butter preference. The results showed that nearly half of all respondents said it would be a deal-breaker to find out their date is on the opposite side of the creamy vs. crunchy debate.
“Sixty-three percent of all respondents even said they will pass on the peanut butter altogether if it’s not the kind they prefer,” states the article.
There ya have it, ladies and gentleman. So, what’s your preference?
