People are always looking for ways to predict things. Ever since Nostradamus, folks have been overly obsessed with knowing what’s going to happen. We have the Farmer’s Almanac, palm readings and horoscopes. Many important people who are deserving don’t have a day of the year named after them but a groundhog does; why? because he predicts things. Along those lines, did you know that one of the most popular sections of any magazine is its personality prediction test? hmmmm. But here’s something you probably haven’t considered: those gourmet cheeseburgers you just ordered speak volumes about yourself and the person across the table.
So you like it extremely well done? In that case ‘how are you Mr. or Ms. Conservative?’ You are the type of person that buttons the top button on a Polo shirt and it’s not uncommon to see you sporting a cloth mask over you face when out in public to prevent germ transmission. Voting republican for you is not a choice, it’s instinctive.
Did I just see you reach for the hot sauce? You got into trouble a lot as a kid and still prefer things a little on the wild side don’t you?
So you like ketchup on top AND a little spicy mustard. You are a person who is responsible and slightly conservative, but watch out for that spontaneous and fun side which periodically comes out to play.
I see yours has melted cheese dripping down the sides and grease soaking up into the bun. Most likely you are a person that believes a home is meant to be lived in and cleaning comes about as often as Christmas.
Hot sauce, grilled onions and Chipoltle Mayo, I am not even going to begin to get into that one.
I could go on but you get the idea, who knew that a gourmet cheeseburger could give away so much about your personality? A good reason to never order one at a business meeting, but if you do, remember that person sitting across the table from you will know a lot about your personality before your first bite.
p.s. remind me to tell you about IBM and the salt shaker ‘test’ some day.
