Fast eaters tend to be ambitious, but also impatient. In 2012, a study in PLoS ONE found that fast eaters usually grew up with other fast eaters, which created competition over leftovers.

Although fast eaters are goal-oriented and efficient, they also have higher health risks. In 2017, studies concluded that quick eating raises the risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and weight gain.
