Serious Eats: Talk
Can you tell personality by how the buffet plate is piled?
I like buffets and go to one fairly often. Sometimes I just watch to see how someone will arrange the food on their plate when they go through a buffet line. Especially, when it's the salad. Some people are pretty artistic about it. Some people are pretty "generous" (OMG!).
I'm curious about what that person must be thinking when he/she arranges the plate or what their actions say about them. Anyone else wonder, too? Any ideas-guesses?
