A new study by TV therapist Dr. Gilda Carle has finally revealed what we all suspected. People who hang toilet paper under the roll and closer to the wall are psychopaths (just kidding).

Dr. Carle, who bills herself as a "relationship expert to the stars," devised a personality test based on the toilet paper traits of people.

She queried a random sample of 2,000 men and women between the ages of 18 and 75 and of different ethnicities. She asked if they roll their toilet paper over or under and then had them rate how assertive they are in their relationships on a scale of 1 to 10.

The busiest television therapist in the business determined that people who roll over are more dominant than those who roll under.

And a study in 2010 found that people feel so strongly about how toilet paper should be hung that they will actually change it in other people's homes.

That same study also revealed that those who roll over enjoy taking charge, crave organization and are likely to be overachievers.


The debate on how toilet paper should be hung has been one that has raged off and on for quite some time. According to Huffington Post writer Owen Williams, the 1891 patent for toilet paper reveals the proper way to hang toilet paper.
