You can tell a lot about a person by how they eat FRIES

Freelance creative writer, transcriber, editor, and foodie. I love sharing stories and meeting new folks through online communities,

What's your personality type?

I bet you didn't know you could "read" a person by watching them eat fries.

It's just a theory, of course but contemplate how you eat fries, observe your fry-eating friends, and you be the judge.

"I went over the list three times and double-checked my work. I hope it's good enough."
"I went over the list three times and double-checked my work. I hope it's good enough."

Single Fry Nibbler

As a Single Fry Nibbler you eat one fry at a time in little controlled bites.


  • are detail-oriented.
  • are discerning and careful - sometimes critical.
  • plan everything.
  • often worry.
  • have the tendency to be a control freak.
  • come off as being cold and calculated.
  • may show a front of being confident but are generally insecure.

You're afraid of getting into trouble or taking chances. You walk the straight and narrow and expect others to do the same. If you're critical it's because they are doing it wrong. Sometimes the weight of the world is on your shoulders and you work on the things you can control and worry about the things you can't. You always put up a strong, confident, put-together front but the public will never know what a mess you really are (until you have a breakdown).

You're easy-come-easy-go attitude may appear nonchalant but you sincerely care and may be overly sensitive. You generally follow the rules but you've got a tiny wild streak that may cause you to short-sheet a friend's bed or switch the sugar for salt - but you won't intentionally break any laws because the thought of jail terrifies you. Definitely a dreamer you crave the better things in life. You would drop everything for a friend in need.

If you need a change you tend to change something: hair style or color, new tattoo or piercing. Maybe you just drop everything and head to the beach or amusement park.

Handful - Big Bite

As a Handful - Big Bite you grab a bunch of fries and take a big, healthy bite.


  • are enthusiastic.
  • are generally fun to be around.
  • can be playful and fun.
  • tend to grab onto too many projects at once.
  • get easily overwhelmed.
  • make friends from all walks of life.
  • are trusting and sometimes gullible.

The type to jump before you look you grab at life, friends and fun without considering what kind of influence they may have on you in the long run. Far from calling everyone friend you are friendly to most but only keep a short list of good friends. Your happy-go-lucky demeanor could be a front so no one knows how you really feel. You hide a lot with those big bites, but it's nothing menacing. You just need to work on your self-esteem a little. You tend to take criticism hard but rebound after you've licked your wounds. Don't hold a grudge though! It will weigh you down.

Handful - Mouth Full

As a Handful - Mouth Full you grab a bunch of fries and stuff whatever you can into your hole.


  • get drunk on life.
  • grab the bull by the horns and don't let go.
  • are definitely a multi-tasker - probably to the point of mania.
  • often take on much more than you can handle.
  • have many unfinished projects but would rather work on something new.
  • are easily bored.
  • tend to get side-tracked.

You grab at life just like you grab your food. You take and want more - forget about the consequences. You probably have an addictive personality or at the very least a bit of manic depression. You keep a high energy, fast paced life. Taking the time for self-reflection and relaxation are a waste of time when there is so much to do! You're ultimate goal is world domination.

Utensils or No Fry Eater

As a Utensils or No Fry Eater you don't touch the greasy concoction.


  • walk to the beat of a different drummer.
  • are eccentric, weird or odd - and you like it.
  • generally distrust people.
  • are careful not to leave prints... I mean a paper trail.
  • often go off on your own.
  • are self-guided and independent.
  • enjoy just about anything as long as there's no people involved.

Kind of a loner by your own means you have a different perspective on life. People don't matter so much to you. You have laser perception and can be quite harsh in opinion or judgement. You tend to think outside the box - actually you LIVE outside the box and jeer the world lemmings. You would rather throw yourself off a bridge than work in a cube farm. You may seek world domination in a different way - enthusiastically pushing "the button." Ah, one can dream, right?

      I am both a single fry nibbler and stuffer. And surprisingly, the characteristics described are quite akin to mine. Interesting hub, really. I didn't know eating fries could tell such things - or is it just coincidence? Did this work for anyone else?

      So, @angelaterese13, how do YOU eat fries? LOL

      @luvtoowrite - it makes you crazy as a loon. Join the club! LOL

      @deecoleworld - thanks for stopping by! I've been working on these theories for a long time...or maybe just spending way, waaaaay too much time in McD's.

      I am a combination of the Single Fry Nibbler and Single Fry Stuffer. I am a control freak, I do tend to worry and sometimes afraid of getting in trouble and taking chances. Even so, I am definitely a prankster, selective with friends/food, a confident dreamer and come across as friendly fun. Interesting hub :)

      I am a bit perplexed, because sometimes I am a nibbler, other times I shove the whole fry in my mouth, and when I'm really hungry, I will eat a handful at a time. Does this make me bipolar?

      This was a cool read, just had some McDonald's fries today. I'm a Single Fry Nibbler. I like to savor every bite. I always eat them all up in my car before I reach home. The small size seems to have less in the bag than it used to. Bummer. I would say the personality traits fit me for the most part. Voted up, funny, and interesting.

      Haha! I eat my fries with utensils and that describes me quite well. Now if I could only get rid of those pesky badgers snooping around under the table.

      Thank you Theophanes! I've never tried Curry Ketchup but I've had friends from England who insist on eating their fries with Mayonaisse. It's not bad but my cholesterol? Oy! I'm personally a salt & pepper girl.

      It was a fun write. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

      As a follow up you could do what type of fry... curly, waffle, thick, thin, fried, baked, cheesy, with gravy, sweet potato, yucca, zucchini (All of these I have tried - the latter is godawful.) OK I'll stop harassing you. Happy Hubbing!

      Yes, yes, and you should add what condiments mean. Ketchup, mayonnaise, a mix of both? Something else? My boyfriend's Dutch and he's got me eating fries with Curry Ketchup (which we have to buy on Amazon as no grocer here in the states carries it!) mixed with mayonnaise and chopped white onion bits. Guess it's popular in Holland... beats plain ketchup any day!

      Fun Hub. Thanks for a laugh. :)

      @johndnathan - I'm not one to judge but I may have to create a whole new hub just for you. LOL! Just kidding but... There's an update coming to this because I forgot about yet another category. Thanks for the comment!

      Oh, and I eat corn on the cob one kernel at a time. What does that say about me??? ;)

      John D Nathan 3 years ago from Dallas, Texas. USA

      But, I eat my fries with a fork. What does that say about me?

      Of course I also eat my popcorn with chopsticks, but that's a topic for a different time.
