Default Gin drinkers are more likely to be psychopaths, study says

https://www.latimes.com/food/sns-dai...102-story.html

Rethinking your favorite drink order? According to a recent study, people who like gin and tonic are more likely to have psychopathic tendencies than those who enjoy any other cocktail. The study, conducted by a group of psychologists in Austria, surveyed 953 people to investigate potential correlations between food and drink preferences and personality.

Study participants were given a long list of foods and drinks and asked to rate them on a scale of one to six based on taste preference. They were then given a personality questionnaire designed to evaluate their emotional stability “Machiavellianism,” aggression, and “tendency towards everyday sadism.”

Landing in the category of “everyday sadist” is no accident. One of the questions, for example, asked whether the respondent enjoyed “tormenting people.” Hard to deny the aggression there.

Overall, people who enjoyed bitter foods and drinks possessed more “malevolent” personality traits. Gin drinkers scored higher on these frightening traits across the board. The same was true for black coffee, another bitter yet sophisticated drink of choice. Tonic water and dark chocolate were two other psychopath favorites.

Study authors struggled to find a reason for the correlation, but posited that eating bitter-tasting foods could be “compared to a roller-coaster ride where people enjoy things that induce fear.”

Can't stand Gin, but the only way I drink coffee is black. Any other way ruins it.

I'm a happy go lucky drunk for the most part, but Gin makes me really pissed off for some reason. I have no idea why, but it does.

You have to remember that most good Gins are 94 proof, not 80 proof like most other liquors. So drinking the same volume will get you much more drunk. To be honest, I just about totally stopped the Tanqueray a few years ago and went to Bourbon for just that reason. I still like a good Martini now and then, though.

I got down right mean and nasty drinking gin. And I've consumed my fair share of high ABV booze in significant volumes.

My dad and uncle had the same issues. Drink whiskey they were fine. No matter how much.

Get two or three gin and tonics in them people got hurt.

There's really nothing you can cut it with that kills that gin taste sufficiently.

I do like Gin even though I don't drink it or any hard liquor anymore. The only martini for me is gin.

In all cases, stir gin with ice in a chilled glass or pitcher for 45 seconds to a minute.

Don't shake despite what Bond always ordered.

Pour a bit of Vermouth in a chilled glass, swirl is around coating the glass then pour it out.
Strain the gin into the glass and add a twist or olive. Use Turkish olives if you dare.


Seriously, if you don't care for gin, try a Hendricks, Botanist or other non London Dry Gin martini. There's a huge difference in gins and the cheap stuff is awful unless you're making Salty Dogs or something.

Nealy picked up Hendricks Orbium the other day but grabbed the regular instead. Orbium has wormwood and quinine. Sounded like a very strong G&T.

Gin has been good to me. While I might be a psychopath, I’ve never had a hangover on good gin. Another good brand is Aviation.... dry
