Are you a Mary Poppins or a Nutty Professor?  These are the four different types of drunk, according to scientists.

Everybody holds their booze in different ways, but apparently, all of us can be placed into specific drunken personality types.  Researchers, from the University of Missouri, grilled 187 students about their tipsy and sober states — sorting them into groups.

Members of the group were then paired up into "drinking buddies" because they knew what each other were like on a night out.  The experts then came up with the four most common drunk personalities — and named them all after familiar pop culture references.

Are you a Mary Poppins or a Nutty Professor?  These are the four different types of drunk, according to scientists.

Everybody holds their booze in different ways, but apparently, all of us can be placed into specific drunken personality types.  Researchers, from the University of Missouri, grilled 187 students about their tipsy and sober states — sorting them into groups.

Members of the group were then paired up into "drinking buddies" because they knew what each other were like on a night out.  The experts then came up with the four most common drunk personalities — and named them all after familiar pop culture references.

Intrigued?  Here are the four types of drunk…

 

 

The Hemingway

Hemingway's were the most common drunk personality — with 42% of the participants falling into this category.

Novelist, Ernest Hemingway, is quoted as once saying that he could "drink Hells any amount of whiskey without getting drunk".  Just like the namesake, this "type" stays pretty much the same while out on a bender.

Hemingways were described as "drinkers who tend not to undergo drastic character changes or experience harms".  However, it should be noted, that their levels of intellect and conscientiousness did drop a tad though.

So, while they're not wildly different, they're not on their "A" game either.  This is the most common drunk personality — with 42% of the participants falling into this category.

 

Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins types are sweet and friendly.

When you think of Mary Poppins, what do you envisage?  Well, this drunk's just how you imagine — sweet and, generally, agreeable.

The Mary Poppins persona stays nice and friendly, and is unlikely to stir up any trouble, despite having knocked back a few.  However, they too, will act a bit less intelligently and conscientiously.

 

The Nutty Professor

Nutty Professors have lively alter egos.

Just like Eddie Murphy's famous character, this drunk reveals a second personality, which comes when they're under the influence.  Nutty Professors tend to be quiet folk when they're sober, but become the life and the soul of the party, once the drinks start flowing.  As the booze kicks in, these characters lose their inhibitions, and start to show-off their louder — much less, self-disciplined — side.

 

The Mr. Hyde

Mr. Hyde types have a dark side.

Everybody knows a "Mr. Hyde" type.  They're, generally, the person that you want to watch out for when they're boozed.  Dr. Jekyll's famed for having an evil alter ego, called Mr. Hyde — and, this drinker has a dark side when they hit the bottle.

A Mr. Hyde drunk acts "particularly less responsible, less intellectual, and more hostile, when under the influence of alcohol".  Combined with the fact that their levels of conscientiousness, intellect, and agreeableness sharply drop, you may want to keep your distance from any drunken Mr. Hyde pals…
