Junk Food You Eat Reveals Your Personality

If I eat pretzels, does that really mean I'm a flirt? Dr. Alan Hirsch from the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago says so. He conducts research into a branch of psychology called "hedonics," which deals with pleasant and unpleasant feelings.

Hirsch conducted an eight-year study with 800 volunteers and claims the results show that people's snack food preferences reveal their personality type, reports the CBS News "Early Show." (Yes, you may laugh, but Hirsch is serious about this.)

He says the link between food preferences and personality is much like a Rorschach ink blot test long used by psychologists for insight into personality.

This is the true meaning of all that junk food you eat:

* Pretzels mean you're a flirt and you're very lively and energetic.
* Cheese curls mean you have great integrity and maintain a high moral ground.
* Potato chips mean you are aggressive, a real go-getter who will not take no for an answer.
* Beef jerky means you're the life of the party. You're outgoing and gregarious.
* Tortilla chips mean you're a perfectionist. An "A" is not good enough for you. It has to be an "A+."

I personally love tortillas.
Here's one easy and tasty recipe from 101 Things to Do With a Tortilla, the best-seller book by Stephanie Ashcraft:

Tortilla Beef Cannelloni
1 jar (16 ounces) spaghetti sauce
1 pound lean ground beef
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
12 medium flour tortillas
Parmesan cheese for garnish

Spread 3 tablespoons spaghetti sauce in a 9 x 13-inch pan. Brown and drain beef. Add garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and cheese. Cut tortillas into 6-inch squares. Place 2 tablespoons beef along one edge of a tortilla square. Roll up, jelly roll style, and place seam-side down in pan. Repeat process with each tortilla square. Pour remaining sauce over top. Bake 30 minutes at 375 degrees. Garnish with Parmesan. Makes 4-6 servings.

now gimme an A+ for this! :-)))
