salty palate vs. sweet palate--opinions?

I'm curious to know what people make of the following:

In my experience, eaters fall generally into two distinct categories: those who prefer salty, savory foods far more than sweets, and those who prefer sweets far more than salty/savories.

The salty folks are those who asked for jars of pickles and cocktail onions for their birthdays. The sweeties wanted a big special cake.

I fall hopelessly into the salty savories, to the point where I forget to plan dessert sometimes when I have guests coming and wind up scrounging up some grapefruit thingy at the last minute (which the sweet people only grimace at).
