What it means when people sort their M&M's prior to eating them?

My boyfriend sorts his candy by color, is this a sign of anything?

There is a good chance that its a sign of obsessive compulsive disorder. People with this disorder have to give in to their obsessions or they get very uncomfortable.

I personally find it an interesting activity to sort my M&M's before I eat them. I don't think it means anything in particular. Perhaps he is a fan of organization!

It is doubtful that sorting his candy is a sign of anything. It sounds like it's just his own personal preference. Many people have rituals around food. For example, some like to eat one item at a time (not mix things like mashed potatos and corn). Let it go.
