Expressive Personalities

Once upon a time, cell phones were all the rage. Now, I don’t even see the point. Sooner or later, it’s going to be “Sry I cnt tlk” as opposed to que [Justin Bieber ringtone] “Sorry, I can’t text. What did you want to say?” It’s hard to say why people don’t just have a text-only device.

Anyways, in this world of texting and instant messaging, emoticons have become our faces. Even on Facebook, there’s no better way to depict how we’re feeling in real-time.

But like our faces, our usage of smilies (smileys? smiles?) take on certain a…certain uniqueness. While it’s a stretch to say no two smilers? (I’m making this up as I go) are alike, since we only have so many smiley’s possible until we add new letters, you’ll have a certain way of smiling.

For instance, I like to go =]. Or =[.

OthersĀ  like to use the graphical ones such as the one available on AIM and other IM clients.

Still others go (:, which forces me to turn my head the other way. Maybe they like the colon but don’t like how AIM autochanges them to pictures.

At any rate, usage differs. I’ve tried out XD a few times, but it doesn’t quite fit me for some reason. Others like to go QQ or T_T (what does this even mean?). If there’s one annoying smiley out there I’ll have to go with o.o, in all bra sizes. A little dirty there, but you can O.O at that. Yeah, that’s right Jason. It’s annoying. Not everything is a shock.

So believe it or not, you can develop a smiley personality.

By the way, trying drawing a straight line across your keyboard from the equal sign to the enter. You can spam =]’s really fast. Thanks David for the tip.

Ivana says T_T is supposed to be crying. The slits (vertical lines) are tears and the slants (horizontal) are Asian eyes.
