Quote of the Day: Fonts reveal you

My colleague JB would love this - the Saturday Times claims that what sort of person you really are is revealed by your favourite computer typeface. Here is what your typeface says about you:
  • The person who prefers Times New Roman is a default person who can’t be bothered to explore life’s drop-down options;
  • The elegant Bodoni font is for wanabee Italians whose life goal is to own a Vespa and live in Islington;
  • Comic Sans reveals that you desperately want to be loved and considered nice but you cry a lot at home on your own;
  • The tasteful and design conscious use Gill Sans and have too much brushed aluminium in their kitchen;
  • Verdana is used by people who design web-sites, never see the sun, spend lots of time blogging and don’t knowingly read books;
  • Rockwell Stencil Extra Extra Bold is for people who speak in wild west accents, drive 4x4s, wear Stetsons and live in Essex. They may be dangerous.
The fact that I use Verdana for publicity (the best to read at a distance), Arial usually (nice and clear), and Trebuchet on the blog... just doesn't fit. But they are rather amusing stereotypes!
