Studies suggest there are 4 types of drunk people in the world; which one are you?
Science has proof that there are only four kinds of drunk people in this world.
Picture this: You are hanging out with your friends at a bar. You all have the same number of drinks. Still, there is one friend who is so drunk that he/she is falling off the couch, and then there is one friend, who is unaffected by the number of drinks.
Do you ever wonder why our bodies react differently to alcohol? Or how some people get too drunk and some people can down bottles of beer and still walk in a straight line? Well, science has all the answers.
Psychology researchers from the University of Missouri at Columbia have published a study in Addiction Research & Theory, which suggests that drunk people can be categorized into four varieties. They conducted a study on 374 undergraduates at a large Midwestern university, as reported by TIME magazine.
1. Ernest Hemingway
The first category was that of literary legend Ernest Hemingway. Almost 40% people fell in this category, making it the largest group. As the writer claimed once that he could 'drink hells any amount of whiskey without getting drunk', Hemingway did not show any traits of a very drunk person even when he had too much whiskey. So, these are the kind of people who can have any amount of liquor and still be able to walk and talk in their senses.
2. Mary Poppins
The second category was said to be like the character Mary Poppins. While one couldn't imagine the character getting drunk on any spirit, Poppins liked to believe that she was 'practically perfect in every way' in the 1964 movie, which is what these people also think of themselves. These are mostly extroverts, who find happiness in alcohol and share this happiness with people around them.
3. Nutty Professor
The third category was that of the Nutty Professor, a character immortalized by Eddie Murphy. This category included introverts who, when drunk, became more outgoing and were put at ease with alcohol inside their bodies. They became more sociable and fun after drinking.
4. Mr Hyde
The fourth and the last category was that of Mr Hyde (the evil alter-ego of Dr Jekyll), who showed the negative sides of their personality after getting drunk. According to the study, these people were “particularly less responsible, less intellectual, and more hostile when under the influence of alcohol.”
Now that science has given us four different types of drunk people and compared them to famous personalities, whether fictitious or real, which drunk person are you? Tell us in the comments section!
