Whether you prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate, briefs over boxers, or the Stones over the Beatles, the personality test is the perfect example of categorization in its truest form.

This very interesting topic was found on The National Post in their article, “The simplistic appeal of the personality quiz.” This author addresses profiling in a very personal approach from her life as a writer and editor.

Specifically, she points the reader to a video quiz of four questions that will tell you what “font” you are and the applicable features it represents in you.

While the concept behind it is science-based, i.e. categorization, it is also very entertaining. Check it out. And for the record, I am “dot-matrix”.
