Do You Eat Like a Liberal or a Conservative?

You may be surprised to hear that there’s a strong link between political affiliation and the type of food people eat. It’s really true that some people eat like liberals and some people eat like conservatives. I based my latest test, Do You Eat Like a Liberal or a Conservative?, on psychological research. So don’t come crying to me if you don’t like your result 😉

Speaking of results, let me know what you got on this one in the comments below. And let me know what you think of this quiz topic.

What do you think?

    I do think and eat like a liberal, it seems 😀 I must admit I like being open-minded and trying new things. It’s funny, though; I love comfort food as well. I wonder what this makes me.

    Could you please give a link to the research? It sounds pretty interesting.

    Thanks for the quizzes <)

    OK, I took the bait! I knew I was gonna get conservative (and I am conservative in the NON-political sense), because you’ve only given me two choices – “comfort” food and what you percieve as “fancy” or “trendy” food. A few things:
    – I’m not American and don’t know what In-n-Out is – it doesn’t sound trendy or faddish to me!
    – I’m dieting, so I had a conflict between foods I knew I “should” eat and comfort food
    – I’m from a major foodie city – Thai is not trendy here, it’s what everyone does with their weekend.

    I think a four-choice quiz would be a bit better – you can cover a spread of what might be considered comfort or trendy food, and have more realistic choices (do people really eat veggie burgers at home??)

      Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately, the study I was basing the quiz on had limited information, and it was basically split between ethnic and trendy. I hope you were still able to enjoy the quiz anyway 🙂 (And yes, I actually eat veggie burgers at home!)

    According to the results: I eat like a conservative. I think I’m conservative (from a book I read at school because my friends were being super political that day) and my only problem with the quiz is that…I don’t really eat out so most of the questions about fastfood joints did not apply to me! ;~; I find it to be a very interesting topic. I would’ve never seen the link between those two lol

      Very interesting! I’m glad the quiz proved true for you. Also, thank you for the honest feedback about the food choices. A few other people have said the same thing, and I’ll keep this in mind when writing future food quizzes 🙂

    I eat like a conservative but I am liberal. Which is confusing to be honest…let me tell you why. If I was conservative, as the word suggests, wouldn’t I be careful with what I eat? Liberal I would get because I adore comfort food. Ehhh, its okay…its got research behind it right!?

      Haha! The research suggests that liberal people like healthier / organic / ethnic food while conservatives prefer comfort / old fashioned food. I agree with your point though 🙂
