You are what you eat ... or are you?

I came across a blog today where the writer posted an article entitled "How to Judge a Dude by His Food". Basically the article talks about a study on how you can tell a lot about a guy's personality based on the food he likes to eat and what he orders in restaurants. For example, guys who like steak show manliness and decisiveness, while those that order fish show that they are confident and secure with themselves. It was pretty funny how the writer generalized such things like ordering chicken fingers made a guy seem like a mama's boy, and an order of General Tso's chicken made a guy appear easygoing, while pad thai displayed a safe and conservative demeanor. I wonder what the writer would say about my hubby who, among other things, enjoys balut (duck embryo), dinuguan (pork blood stew), and nilagang bulalo (bone marrow soup). I guess that would make Jojo adventurous, open-minded and a sure contender for the reality show Fear Factor!

Do not judge a book by its cover. I guess do not judge a person by what he/she orders to eat. I hope the author would find something better to do than look for correlations between food and behavior. There might be an angle of discrimination in his experiments.

Next the author will judge a person by what he or she wears and how he or she walks. There is no established correlation in all these.
