According to a quirky survey by Flora, your butter-spreading technique can unveil some interesting traits. Most people, about 50%, prefer their toast evenly spread, which apparently speaks to their laid-back, calm demeanor.
Then there are the methodical butterers, who meticulously cover every nook and cranny of the toast – crusts included. This camp makes up about 19%. And let’s not even talk about the crust avoiders, who leave an unbuttered border around their toast, or the “tear-and-spreaders” who divvy up their slice before buttering each individual piece.
The Controversial Double-Siders
Enter the “double-siders”. They’re the folks who like their butter spread on not one, but both sides of their toast. As audacious as it sounds, they do exist, and opinions about them are, well, toasted!
Food for Thought
This isn’t the first time eating habits have been over-analyzed for fun. From judging pizza eaters who use cutlery as conscientious to claiming waffle cone lovers as nurturing caregivers, we’ve heard it all. And while it’s amusing to think that these arbitrary habits might define us, it’s essential to remember to take these studies with a pinch of salt… or maybe butter.
Next time you sit down to breakfast, take a moment to notice how you’re spreading that butter. Whether you’re a crust-avoider or a double-sider, remember – it’s all in good fun! And while these amusing surveys can spark playful debates, they shouldn’t dictate how we see ourselves or others.
However, when it comes to coffee, non-dairy milk drinkers beware – you might just be under the personality microscope!
