WHAT DOES YOUR EMAIL FONT SAY ABOUT YOU?
If you were choosing a font to set as your email font, what would you choose?
Well now that you've made your choice (and if you haven't - then do, just for fun!) then read on to find out what psychologists say that your choice of font says about you!
And by the way ...
this character test is scientifically based - unlike graphology which is said to be bogus by most scientists and by the Victorian police.
To work out this test, psychologists gathered data about the email font-choices of thousands of individuals and simultaneously, they asked the volunteers to take part in more traditional established character tests. By compiling the results they produced a checklist of font-styles and character traits. And, they assure us, they found a reasonably good match.
Ok, ready .... here's what your font says about you ...
So there you have it! Are you happy with your choice? Well choose carefully, because the moral of this tale is that according to psychologists you're telling your email correspondents much more than you realise about yourself through your choice of a font!
