MSNBC is reporting a study today done by Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research that seems to show that bar patrons drink more beer and drink faster when there is loud music. I hate to say it but I love to see these kinds of stories as they tell us a bit more about the human phyche as we get to think more about how people react to different situations.

Well that and maybe because I am drinking a Corona as I read the latest health news on the internet.

So what does the study really tell us? Well I believe that if we are to think about what people are doing in a bar, and I have been there in the past, they are talking, chacking out what is happening and fidgeting. When you are fidgeting a bit you are more apt to drink or eat whatever is in front of you.

So learn from the studies that you see, in this case I think that you are going to notice in yourself that if you are distracted and people put food in front of you then you will eat it…and lots of it.

  1. Interesting report, you know “they” say loud music is capable of making people do all kinds of crazy things. Anyhow, I might attribute people’s social habits more to social pressure, or people just being themselves. I’m sure music and alcohol allow people to be themselves more openly. Thanks for sharing Bill.
