Nutritional disorders describe restrictive and/or abusive behaviours that affect both women and men alike. The relationship with food can change in the sense of food preferences, sometimes eating healthier, and sometimes not, or eating more or losing appetite. An eating disorder is a mental disorder defined by abnormal eating habits that adversely affect a person’s physical or mental health. The cause of eating disorders is not clear. We aim to identify whether there is a correlation between personality traits and feeding disorders in young adults aged 20–25 years. To verify the work hypothesis, we applied the MCMI Personality Tracking and EDI 3 Test for Food Disorder on a 150-person group of participants aged 20–25 years. The media plays a major role in the way people see themselves. And, socio-economic status is a factor that influences eating disorders.
