Dr. Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, has found that personalities can be revealed by choices of pizza toppings.


Nontraditional toppings, such as pineapple: You’re an aggressive, achievement-oriented, natural leader who doesn’t suffer fools easily.


One meat: You’re an irritable, argumentative, procrastinator who frequently conveniently “forgets” obligations at work and home.


Several meats: You’re a dramatic, seductive, extrovert who thrives as the center of attention, craves novelty, and is impeccably groomed.

One vegetable: You’re empathetic, understanding, well-adjusted, and easygoing—the ideal parent.


Several vegetables: You’re trustworthy, loyal, dependable, humble, introverted, and function best in a group environment.


Extra cheese: Well, everyone likes extra cheese.
