Not this shit again. This article makes links between the type of coffee you drink and the type of personality displayed by the owner of the lips surrounding the mouth that consumes the coffee.
It's nothing but rash generalisations posing as psychology. It totally ignores the fact that, often, purchases of coffee - or anything else for that matter - aren't evolutionary or instinctive, but a conscious choice often influenced by the consumer's awareness of what it says about him or her.
Kyle drinks espressos so he's (and I paraphrase) moody, hard-bitten, hard working, into leadership, fast goals, he doesn't suffer fools and is into night-time shenanigans.
You fucken what?
Actually, the cunt's just been to Italy and wants his friends to know how cool he is.
Or perhaps that's just the style of coffee Kyle enjoys. Cos it peps him up.
This bollocks is much like the supposed 'group personality' of a Gen X or Gen Y individual. Just because you were born between 1980 and 2000 - or whatever the hell the time-frame is - you like broccoli and hate la crosse and cry at Meryl Streep movies and crap sideways. What a crock of Bristol Stool Scale Type 6 shit.
And don't get me started on astrology and its brand of flakey, ill-informed and ridiculous generalisations based on which fucking star you were born 'under'.
No really, don't, cos you'll wish you'd never experience my fist in Uranus*.
* Sorry, nothing like a good Uranus joke - or even a bad one.
