There Are Four Types of Drunks, Says Science


Stashed in: Emotion, Alcohol!, Alcohol

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

Are you a Hemingway (doesn't change much no matter how much you drink), a Mr Hyde (gets hostile and blacks out), a Mary Poppins (sweet and responsible) or a Nutty Professor (gets crazy funny after a few)?

These roughly correspond to emotional states: Unaffected, Angry, Social, Happy.

Missing: Sad, Disgusted, and Fearful.

Im definitely a Nutty Professor.

ditto!

Pretty sure I'm a Mr Hyde :/

23% of drunks are Mr Hydes. Two thirds of them are women:
