Why do some people tolerate spicy food better than others?

Sometimes its because of different personalities, but other times it because of personal preference. It has been shown that taste itself is influenced by sight and very heavily influenced by smell. One person's ability to tolerate spicy foods over anothers could be linked into the sensitivity of their sense of smell. I know many people with poor senses of smell who absolutely love spicy foods as it assists them in their ability to taste the foods due to the strength and the inclination of spicy foods to clear the sinus cavitys. (There are three types of people in the world: non-tasters, medium-tasters, and super-tasters. The type of taster that a person is depends on the amount of fungiform papillae on the surface of the tongue. The greater the amount, the more a person will taste. It is estimated that a quarter of the population is comprised of non-tasters, a quarter is comprised of super-tasters, and the remaining half is comprised of medium-tasters. A non-taster would be less likely to react strongly to spicy foods than a super-taster would be.)

Do boys or girls have better taste?

According to all the websites (reliable websites) I've seen, the overall answer is that yes, Girls do have more sensitive taste buds than boy, but not necessarily more. Boys need an average of approximately 10 percent more sourness and 20 percent more sweetness to be able to recognize the taste than girls. Also just a little fun fact here, there are three different types of tastes. Super tasters, who have more than twice the normal amount of taste buds and take up only 25 % of people, Medium tasters, who have the normal amount of taste buds and make up 50% of people, and lastly Non-tasters, who basically suck at tasting anything and have and abnormally small amount of taste buds. 25% of people are non-tasters.

Why you eat what you eat?

You have taste buds on your tongue everyone has different ones and so you can be a super taster or a no taster. super taster has taste buds that can detect extra bitterness. And no tasters can taste but it's not so sensitive and bitter. So when your buds get accustomed to foods it approves and like your brain sends signals and when it appears in front of you, you know it's good and eat it.
