I completey agree with this, I first came across the thought of this while doing a project at University to show my personality so I thought that my food taste was an new and unusual way to go about it. I thought I was the only person who thought this and when I tried explaining that food preferences can determine pesonalities to people but they just thought I was crazy or only understood a half of what I was saying!
