Pizza Eating Personalities



Our small group talked about the Enneagram Personality Test this week. So my attention was peaked when I heard that Cosmo came up with personality types based on the way that you eat a slice of pizza. Here is the way that Fox News tells it:

There are 4 distinct personality types—drivers, influencers, supporters, and careful correctors—who tend to have very unique ways of doing things, even small tasks.

Cosmopolitan then applied that same research to people’s pizza eating techniques--and here's what they found:
  • If you fold it: Those who fold their pizza slice are considered "drivers." They're multi-taskers; they want to eat the pizza fast, and eat it while doing something else.
  • If you start with the crust: People who eat the crust first are described as “influencers” who are spontaneous and like to be different.
  • If you use a knife and fork: Those who cut their pizza are known as “supporters.” The research says they approach life relaxed and are warm and friendly listeners who likely let their friends get their slice first.
  • If you just pick it up and bite: Those who eat it with their hands and bite their slice are known as the "careful correctors." They like to plan ahead so everything turns out as expected. They usually stick with the same flavors and toppings.
I fold it but do not admit to the driver personality. I may be a multitasker but do not think that I eat it all that fast.

So how do you eat your pizza? Do you resonate with the associated personality?

  1. I just pick it up and bite but I'm not at all like what it's described there. Personality test fail :)

    2. Yea, I would need a knife and fork. But when it comes to food, it's either finger lickin good or a pair of chopsticks for me. Much more efficient. Well...only for food LOL

  2. I pick it up and bite it but it DOES fit me well. I am a careful planner; I've always had (since high school) and still have a "To do list." I also have standard toppings, always a half and half small pizza, planning that half will be the current meal and the other half will be eaten cold or reheated for the next meal. LOL

    But knife and fork? For pizza?? Who does that?? ;)

    1. Glad to hear how accurate the test is for you nani.

      Sadly, the mayor of New York eats pizza with a knife and fork.

  3. Some very interesting facts! The last two fit me the best. I will cut a deep dish pizza but pick & bite a thin crust pizza.

    1. Deep dish does need a knife and fork. Back in NYC we call deep dish "Sicilian Pizza". It was baked on square sheets.

  4. I eat the first slice with a knife and fork when it's hot, but then pick it up and eat it. I think the last two personality types fit me much better than the others.
