The BBC is running a fluffy piece on peoples drinking personalities. It seems a psychologist, Dr. Glenn Willson, has observed the behavior of 500 Brits while at bars and pubs and found that their body language belies their personality. The good doctor has determined that their are eight distinct "drinking personalities". No more, no less.
From the article:
So, what's your drinking personality? I think I am clearly the "Ice Queen."THE JACK-THE-LAD
This "peacock" is conscious of his image and will drink a bottled beer, or cider.
He is inclined to be confident and arrogant, and can be territorial in his gestures, spreading himself over as much space as possible, for example, pushing the glass well away from himself and leaning back in his chair.
If he is drinking with friends, he would be unlikely to welcome approaches from outside the group, unless sycophantic and ego-enhancing.
