Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She writes articles that are interesting to her readers.

By now, most people know there is a study on record about almost everything. The scientific research study about the way people eat their eggs is a very interesting one. The study indicates how people like their eggs cooked reveals a lot about them, their personality and what makes them tick.

A study was conducted for the British Egg Industry Council by Mindlab International. Scientists researched 1,010 adults and found some interesting information.

Let's see what the way you eat your eggs reveals about you.

Scrambled Eggs

According to the study, people who prefer scrambled eggs are guarded. Even though they like the eggs scrambled up and mixed together, their life is more organized.

Those who tend to eat scrambled eggs usually have or want high-level jobs. They are conservative and once they have friends, they keep them for life.

Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard Boiled Eggs

People who favor hard-boiled eggs are usually disorganized and impulsive. They don't care what others think about them.

Boiled eggs people love themselves the way they are. These are the people who most likely will not stay in unhealthy relationships rather than making a change.

Soft Boiled Eggs

Soft-boiled egg people are similar to hard-boiled egg people in that they are true to themselves and won't change just to get people to like them. They are usually strict on themselves and others, but will not hurt other people's feelings.

Poached Egg

People who favor poached eggs over the other styles tend to be outgoing and happier than those who prefer eating their eggs any other way.

Poached egg lovers have some mystery about them. Others like to be around them because they are down to earth.

While poached egg people can succeed in any area, they appreciate the simple things in life. For instance, they would rather live in a cabin than in a castle.

Sunny Side Up

Sunny Side Up Eggs

People who like their eggs cooked sunny side up prefer a balanced life with a wild side and a sophisticated side. They can make friends with anyone but will keep only the ones who can add value to their lives and vice versa.

They get just as much pleasure out of staying home and reading a good book as they would when traveling the world.

Fried Egg

People who like their eggs fried are usually hard workers. That is why fried egg lovers have jobs that require a specific skill and are typically accomplished in what they do.

It takes time to warm up to fried egg lovers, but once you get to know them, you will love them just as much as they love their fried eggs.

Eggs Over Easy

Eggs Over Easy

People who love eggs over easy are usually cautious people. They will love you after they have studied you and found out you can be trusted. Until then, they will find it very hard to trust you.

Eggs Benedict

Those who love Eggs Benedict are usually busy people. They would rather work and be on the go than sit and have a quiet meal. However, when they do stop to eat, they want things just the way they want them. They don't mind sending food back to the kitchen in restaurants if food is not exactly the way they want it to be.


Omelet Eaters

Omelet eaters are usually very self-disciplined. They are the most organized of all egg lovers. Usually, you will notice that they have clean houses and clean cars. They will not settle for just anything. They may have a hard time finding friends because they want a mirror of themselves.

An omelet eater and a disorganized hardboiled egg eater are definitely not a good match.

Delived eggs

Deviled Eggs

Deviled egg lovers are those who like to spice up their lives. While they love some of the same things as a hardboiled egg lover, they don't want to settle for anything that is ordinary, This is evident by the way they dress act. They like to add a little accessory to their life.

Quiche | Source


Those who like quiche can be either hot or cold. The unfortunate thing is you never know which person you are getting.

If you call a quiche lover on his off day, hang up the phone and call back on one of his good days.

Conclusion of the Matter

It doesn’t matter how you eat your eggs, they’re still nutritious and a great source of protein.

Know that these things came out of a study. No one is suggesting that you change your egg preference hoping to get the personality you desire.

Which is your favorite way for your eggs to be cooked?

      WOW! That is an interesting question, RTalloni. I started to write that sometimes people's egg preferences change from time to time.

      It depends on their taste buds at certain times. While that might be true, some people might still have a favorite even though they love all of them.

      I like many of them but definitely not all of them. I don't like the ones that look like the egg hasn't been cooked.
