Outgoing people tend to be overweight

(KABC) A new study published this month in the Journal of Psychosomatic Research shows outgoing people tend to be overweight, while those who are anxious are more likely to be thin.

Japanese researchers examined the links between personality and body mass. After controlling for other factors - such as smoking - men in the most extrovert category were nearly two times more likely to be obese than their introvert counterparts.

The same goes for women.
