Bartenders are good

With these orders, bartenders make fun of you

There is more to the bartending job than just mixing cocktails and serving beer.

It is perhaps one of the most social jobs out there. You are in constant contact with other people and you train yourself to have an excellent ability to observe. Because of this, bartenders know more about human nature and behavior than you might think. You can tell from certain factors.

"You can judge a person based on their order," Anjali Sharma, a former Atlanta bartender who has worked for eight years, told Business Insider.

"When you're in a crowded bar, it's very noisy and you order something complicated, you obviously don't care about other people's valuable time," she said. "How you behave in the bar is a clear indication of your personality."

Not only that: based on your order, bartenders can tell whether you are a minor and whether you know which mixtures taste particularly good - "which is okay, but also disappointing because there are so many great cocktails out there," like an anonymous bartender said. They recognize whether you are boring, want to impress those around you with your money, know your way around alcohol or just want to get drunk for little money.

Business Insider asked more than 30 bartenders what they thought of your order.
