New interview question: how do you take your eggs?

by |

Some green eggs and ham for you, ma’am? In a complete turn-around from typical personality profiles, researchers have found that a person’s favourite way of eating eggs can predict their personality type and job suitability.

Using maths and data mining, scientists have uncovered a statistical relationship between a person’s character, lifestyle and social class and how they like their eggs – boiled, fried, scrambled or as an omelette.

Turning your next interview into a breakfast meeting has never been more important!

The study found that boiled egg-eaters have a tendency to be careless and impulsive, while fried egg-eaters are most likely to be younger and male and most frequently found among the skilled working class.

In addition, scrambled egg-eaters are more likely to be in managerial or senior-level jobs, while omelette-eaters are like to be tidy.

For recruiters, it may be a good idea to take the egg test with a pinch of salt as you certainly do not want any discrimination lawsuits – it is sure to leave a stink.

*The study was commissioned by the British Egg Industry Council and carried out by Mindlab International.
