Your Personality Could Be Making You Fat


At any given moment, an estimated 108 million people in the United States are on a diet. But despite the fact that the U.S. weight-loss industry makes roughly $20 billion in revenue each year, people continue to fail for one reason or another. Part of the problem, new research suggests, is that our eating habits are influenced by deep-seated personality traits. Your neuroticism, in other words, could be partially responsible for your love of chocolate and cheese ...



Interesting news for extroverts, the conscientious among us, and neurotics.

Psychologists found the personality traits that make people fat


... These traits are considered to remain stable over a lifetime:

• Extroversion, or how much you need contact with other people

• Openness to experience, or how much you desire novelty

• Conscientiousness, or how much you need to follow the rules

• Agreeableness, or how much you need to feel liked

• Neuroticism, or how easily your emotions are affected

Interestingly, these traits showed themselves in different eating behaviors ...



(YouTube/Carl's Jr.)Emotional eaters have a personality type.The next time you feel fat, don't stare at your scale wondering what went wrong.
