No matter where you get your pizza from in Northern Illinois, it's the way you eat it that states more about you than the brand you order. Research say that the way you eat pizza can provide important clues about your personality type. Which one of these techniques describe you?


Patti Wood, a body language expert at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, takes mundane acts and applies them to a well-known psychology theory called the DISC personal assessment, which centers on four different behavioral traits: dominance, inducement, submission, and compliance.

Here's what she has concluded when applying these theories with the way we eat pizza according to FOXNews.

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

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 generally 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.

Considering that about 13 percent of Americans eat pizza on any given day, that’s a lot of sauce to contemplate.  So which one are you? I am a knife and fork kind of person.
I think I have to eat more pizza to really get an actuate measurement.
