What you "like" on Facebook can lend insight on whether you have high or low IQ, whether you're introverted or extroverted -- even whether you're gay or straight!

Researchers analyzed the likes of more than 58,000 American Facebook users.

They found it's pretty easy to predict someone's sexual orientation, gender, political leanings, and personality traits.

For instance, men who liked the TV show "Glee" were more likely to be gay, while men who liked pro wrestling were more likely to be straight.

Obvious? Maybe. But there was one correlation that baffled researchers. They found that people who liked curly fries were more likely to have a high IQ.

FOX 10's Kari Lake and Troy Hayden tested out the study.
