What Kind of Drinker Are You?

By: T.R. Slyder,

According to Consultant Psychologist Dr. Glenn Wilson, how you hold your glass while imbibing says a lot about who you are. After observing 500 drinkers, he broke them down into the 8 types listed above.

After you've found your type, click the link and see what it says about you. You must be so excited to meet yourself finally!

As a someone with a degree in Psychology, I'm a sucker for these kinds of things and tend to believe in them more strongly than others. I do have a bit of an issue with Dr. Wilson's hypotheses and that is that he didn't address one's ability to change. For instance, if I'm out with good friends at a bar I don't frequent then I'm definitely the Jack the Lad type. But if I'm in relatively mixed company, or have to play more of a role of a host, I'm definitely The Fun Lover. But I still thought the research was interesting.
