Do We Believe It: People Can Smell Your Personality?
In today’s random news, research shows that your personality can be detected from your odor. Poland’s University of Wroclaw found that, “Volunteers who smelled shirts belonging to ‘odor donors’ who could detect the owner’s personalities traits with surprising accuracy.”
“Specifically, people were able to predict how socially dominant the odor donor was, how outgoing he or she was, and how anxious or neurotic.”
This news suggests that people pay particular attention to this trait when looking for a potential mate. There wasn’t any mention of how adding a perfume or cologne could enhance or take away from your ‘odor.’
