    Default What A Font Says About You?

    Follow us on Social Media







    "A study out of Wichita State University in Kansas has found the choice of font used in e-mails, web text, digital scrapbooking and other onscreen communication sends a strong message about the person behind the keystrokes.

    For example, a monospaced typeface such as Courier New, in which every character has the same width, implies dullness and lack of imagination.

    But unlike standard personality tests, which reveal who you are, the Wichita typeface analysis only indicates how others perceive you.

    The study involved 561 students who were asked to describe 20 popular typefaces using 15 adjective pairs.

    Modern display typefaces such as Impact and Rockwell Xbold were most associated with the adjectives masculine, assertive, rude, sad and coarse, while serif fonts (these have a small decorative line added as embellishment to the basic form of the font) such as Times New Roman and Georgia scored highest on words like stable, practical, mature and formal.

    Scripts and funny fonts such as Gigi, Comic Sans and Monotype Corsiva were connected to the adjectives youthful, happy, creative, rebellious, feminine, casual and cuddly, but simultaneously drew the highest scores for instability and impracticality.

    Sans-serif typefaces (which lack small lines at the tips of characters)such as Verdana, Century Gothic and Arial, didn't rate significantly in any adjective category at all. This unfussy font family is an ideal choice for professionals who want readers to focus on the content, rather than the personality traits, of the typeface."

    What's your choice of font?

    Well, I read this before. I even tested it out on SOME people.
    And I gotta admit...that is not entirely true. Some people change their font from one thing to the other ...that doesn't mean that they are changing who they are. Ja?


    "Times New Roman and Georgia scored highest on words like stable, practical, mature and formal."

    I use Georgia all the time. It's my favorite. I guess that explains me, ja?

    Mhmm interesting.
    I've heard that handwriting tells alot about who you are as well. {But then again my handwriting reflects my mood at the time}
    But as the post above me, its true.. we change our fonts all the time but that doesn't mean we are really changing.
    I usually choose Verdana, so I guess I care about what is being said, not what the font reflects about personality.

    well alot of times, i can guess wat type of person the person might be... cuz for everyone, the choice of font is diff even though they change it... but the font u like the best will be used the most

    and also as sarah said, handwriting tells us more abt the person than the font they use... i totally agree with that cuz ppl with bad handwriting would normally be not neat and organized... u can tell if a person is creative by the way they write... normally a clever, smart person always writes neat... these r not always true... its like u cant decide wat type of person a person is by thr looks

    It's exactly as the phrase : Don't judge a book by its cover.

    Well its part of human nature to do that, though we shouldn't because people are much different then what you see on the outside. Oh I doubt Mona doing that. Choosing fonts can relate to the mood, or as Kami said "what looks pretty" or just one your comfortable with.
