Do you think the type of coffee you drink tells people something about your personality? Or what kind of shoes you wear? Or any other seemingly minor detail that you choose on a regular basis? These thoughts are floating through my head today because I read an article that claims that the type of coffee you drink tells a great deal about your character. Hmmm.
According to the article, since I drink my coffee black, I am an minimalist who is competitive and sometimes moody, among other traits. I have to say, I am not sure if they all quite fit, especially the part about being competitive. However, if I stretch the definition to mean competitive with myself it may fit a bit more. Are there any cappuccino lovers out there? Supposedly you are optimistic and extroverted. The list went on giving a few examples of different drinks and what they mean.
The article did make me think about all the choices we make and what they may say about us. The first thing that came to mind to me about a way that I think really shows my personal character is another seemingly insignificant choice—where I sit at Mass. I generally sit in the back, in the second to last row, if possible. Why not the last row? Because I don’t want to seem like I am not truly present for the sacrament. The second row from the back, however, gives me a good place to feel comfortable and hide, yet still be part of the community. And if I can sit with a friend, the Mass is made all the better.
Are there things that you do that seem small, but really do tell about your personality? Please share! Also, where do you like to sit at Mass and why?!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
