What font are you?

Found this over at JJ's Tea Stains. Times New Roman indeed! I would've guessed something exotic like Papyrus, or elegant like Parisian Script. So much for self-knowledge...


You Are Times New Roman




You are formal and conservative. You're concerned with how you appear to others.

For you, maintaining a good reputation is important. You want people to trust you.

Elegant and classy, you always maintain your composure. You are never crass.

You are professional, competent, and upstanding. And it shows!

Hi Liane, thanks for the link. I thought this one was fun. I can't remember what I was last time, but this time I'm the same as you.

Apparently I'm Arial Black. I love these quizzes.

Kaz Augustin said...

I'm Courier New. Btw, that should be "What typeface are you?" Font means typeface plus size, whereas we're just talking typeface here.

Courier New, of course. I tend to call my computer my typewriter...

BTW, I pop over to your blog the morning after your first ever watching of a US presidential debate live expecting some insights into the way we do things up here and instead find a meme about type fonts. (Or is the fact you find a meme more interesting the insight?

JJ and Debs, maybe it's a writer thing.

Kaz, you're right of course. The term is used very loosely now.

Kevin, I actually posted the meme before the debate, while listening to all the anticipatory analyses. Sorry, no insights. I was underwhelmed, to be honest. Both candidates appeared tired to me, McC physically weary and O tired of repeating his positions and keeping them convincing. I found McC dismissive and at times rather disrespectful, but as the pundits have been saying, there were no game-changers.

I'm Arial Black too. "You are bold, over the top, and quite loud. You'll stand up and stand up to get your point across. Subtlety isn't really your thing. You sometimes come off as crass and abrasive. You're not as passionate as people might think. You just enjoy overwhelming other people!" Hmmm... it seems I answered the questions as me, rather than as Zinnia!!

I am Courier New according to the test but I am not sure.

You have a deep appreciation for tradition and history.

You don't eschew modernity, but you do have a deep reverence for the past.

You are very literate. It's likely you enjoy writing and reading.
Some people may feel you're a bit cold, but you just have high standards for who you hang out with.

Zinnia, I know you're not loud and crass! Wouldn't work in your profession....:)

akalol, I'd say your rationality might be mistaken for coldness if you're like another engineer I know. But your online persona is anything but cold. As for the high standards for the company you keep: you hang out here, so I'll take that as a compliment! ;)
