Does the DiSC test predict whether you like spicy food?

You snicker. "Of course my DiSC style has nothing to do with my palate," you say. And strictly speaking, you're right. There's no established connection between DiSC behavior and culinary preference. 


Let's broaden the question. Is there a connection between personality type and food preference? According to the Institute of Food Technologists, the answer might be yes. At their recent annual meeting, a Ph.D. candidate from Penn State presented research linking personality type with a preference for bland vs. spicy foods.

So who knows? Maybe DiSC does explain your love of five-star pad thai.
