GLASGOW, Scotland, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- As the battle for the Ashes is played out on the cricket pitch, 2,000 English and 2,000 Australians living in England have been questioned on their prowess and behaviours at the barbecue in a poll* commissioned by the AXA PPP healthcare Nutrition and Fitness website (http://nutritionandfitness.axappphealthcare.co.uk/index.php?axacmp=pr/articles/bbq) Despite the predicted British "barbecue summer" being officially rained off this won't prevent 49% of Australians living in England from getting out their grills this weekend to celebrate the 3rd Ashes test.
Barbecue Survey Findings
Aussie Vs English comparison
AXA PPP healthcare's Nutrition and Fitness behavioural expert Judy James analyses the two nations' barbecue profiles:
The English Barbecuer is relatively timid and status-modest alpha with nocturnal habits, preferring to barbecue in the evening and being no great fan of dressing up to do so - Aussies are much more aggressive and competitively alpha, taking more solo control of the barbie and enjoyment of showmanship and performance.
For the Englishman a Barbie is seen as a chance to up social status by providing food, whilst for Aussies the role is less about power and more about tribal sharing as guests are expected to bring their own to the altar.
The Aussie alpha display is more about demonstrating short bursts of power through physical presence as opposed to the longer-term strategic food-trading of the English barbecue psychology and typology.
