Chi Ku: Bitter Taste Preferences and Responses to Unpleasant Experiences
Eating bitterness is a common Chinese metaphor but received limited research attention. Five studies tested the metaphorical link between bitter taste preference and responses to unpleasant experiences. Based on embodied cognition literature, this research found that individuals who prefer bitter taste reported higher distress tolerance and had different responses to unpleasant experiences.
