I recently read an *article about a study that showed people who drink their coffee black have similar personality traits to psychopaths. Psychopaths…whaaaat? So, I was inspired and thought it would be interesting to add a little extra meaning in my collage painting of coffee cups.
In this collage, each cup shows a different shade of coffee with embedded words that exemplify the personality of the person who’s drinking it. Here’s what to look for:
Coffee with cream and sugar. I imagine this person to be upbeat and perky, even at 6 am. I know a couple of people like this. I avoid them first thing in the morning. You will see the words: Happy, Sweet, Blabbermouth, Perky, and Extrovert.
Black Coffee. This person, according to the article of course, has issues. Most black coffee drinkers I know are men. I’m not judging or suggesting that they are psychopaths here, just stating a fact in my little corner of the world. Words to look for are: Grumpy, Psychopath, Anti-Social, Bitter and Impulsive.
Finally, coffee with a dash of milk. That’s me. The words represent how I feel before I get my first sip of coffee in the morning. It’s best not to talk to me until I consume a full cup. Words to look for are: Aloof, Reserved, Sleepy, Detached and No fuss. You can see part of the word of Quiet, but it got a little covered up during my ripped paper frenzy. Apparently, I had drunk too much coffee the day I worked on that part of the collage.
Which kind of coffee drinker are you?
