What Does Your Favourite Vape Flavour Say About You?
Is your preference in vape flavour indicative of your personality?
You may have seen the personality quizzes that attempt to align taste flavours with personality, but there is no direct, scientific correlation between what flavours we choose and who we are, but it’s still fun to speculate whether your favourite vape flavour is indicative of your personality.
Vape Town, spoke to an expert on taste and behavioural psychology, Dr Kathrin Ohla, who confirmed that some of our taste preferences often come down to past experiences and our environment – which can shape who we are as people. And some preferences we are born with. “We may arrive into the world with a liking for sweet things or an aversion for more bitter tastes,” she says, “but it doesn’t mean we can’t unlearn them.”
Are you as cool as the menthol you vape? Or, are you more eccentric, defined by your love of fruity flavours?
It isn’t unusual for us to be drawn to certain flavours that we associate with positive memories from our childhood and influence our taste preferences as adults. “Think of the cherry pie that your grandma used to bake for you. The smell alone may even trigger a pleasant memory of past visits.”
Arguably the most known for his research on the possible connection between taste and personality, Dr Alan Hirsch has conducted studies with personality quizzes and a sample of 19,400 people through the Smell and Taste Research and Treatment Foundation. Hirsch has found correlations between people’s behaviour and food choices, such as a link between perfectionism and the urge to snack on tortilla chips.
What does your favourite vape flavour say about you?
You’re sophisticated, sometimes sceptical, and like to spice things up from time to time, but you might also have a tendency to stir the pot and cause conflict. You love adventure and know exactly what you want from life.
You’re loyal, dedicated, and enjoy your own company. As well as being introspective, when it comes to others you’re observant and always able to see the best in people, but your tolerance might result in people taking your patience for granted.
You’re usually logical, a good communicator, and even assertive when you need to be, but you also know how to have a good time and have the ability to inject spontaneity into any situation.
You’re perceived as eccentric and energetic with a childlike nature and are happiest when outdoors, but you might not always say the right thing when faced with confrontation.
You’re open-minded and a thrill-seeker with a preference for more acquired tastes. You might lack sensitivity at times.
You’re a dreamer; ambitious and optimistic, with an infectiously positive outlook on life. A social butterfly who is adaptable to new environments, but can be overly analytical.
Finding the flavour for you
Flavours give vapers an individual vaping experience. There is of course, no right or wrong flavour option, but your choice of vape flavour can significantly improve your enjoyment if you find the right one.
But with so many options available, anyone can be overwhelmed when finding their best vape juice. The best way to find the flavour for you is to follow your personal preferences. Determine whether you want a taste that is sweet, minty or fruity. With these basic filters, you can narrow your selection down to the specific flavour of your choice. Remember, it may require a few taste tests before finding the perfect solution, so try and enjoy the selection process.
