Question: How often do you use emojis? I feel like it's entirely possible that the world is split into two categories: emoji lovers and people who would never deign to use emojis in conversation. I'm the former, and I don't care if that puts me in the same category as all the good people who use "u" instead of “you” and say "l8r." I use emojis both ironically, and in complete earnest, and you absolutely may not judge me for it. And for that matter, sometimes people are just busy and would rather type one letter, instead of three.
Anywho, for those of us who do use emojis, your selection definitely says something about you as a person. For example, I’m one of those people who uses emojis to end conversations, because I can’t not respond to someone. Like, if I say, “thank you!” and someone responds, “no prob,” I, on instinct, send back an emoji, because God forbid I let a message go unanswered. (Isn’t it great when your neuroticism can translate into emoji usage?)
That being said, whether you use a sparing heart when texting your best friend who moved across the country, or average 15 emojis/per day, there’s something in the emoticon category for everyone, even the most stoic texters. Here's what your most used emoji says about you:
1. Ramen Noodles
You go hard for the first three weeks of the month. Then, for the last week of the month, you have absolutely no money and live on a very healthy diet of ramen and instant coffee. You need some help with your budget.
2. Girl With Her Hand Up
You get manicures every two weeks, do your hair every morning, and are generally a put together lookin' gal. And you don't mind ~flaunting~ it.
3. Cat With The Heart Eyes/Regular Heart Eyes Emoji
You're in a long distance relationship, or at the very least, are getting laid consistently by one person.
4. Queen Bee
You're the Regina George of your friend group. Alternately, there's a Regina George of your friend group and you spend about 40 percent of your time making fun of her.
5. Clapping Hands
You're the supportive friend, who invites their close friends over for a cup of tea and some ice cream when they go through a bad break up. You're reliable, and happy to help.
You have a lot of roommates. You guys use Splitwise, and Venmo all the time, which translates into using the money emoji too often.
7. Sad Face
You hate your job. Like, not just a little bit. You want out at work and everyone knows it. It's OK, we've all been there. When someone asks you how your day is, this emoji is your go-to response. (That will change when you give your two weeks though!)
8. Dancing Twins
You only text your best friend. And you really don't give a f*c%.
9. Poop Emoji
You're maturing, but that doesn't mean you don't enjoy a good chuckle, and the occasional fart joke.
10. Bento Box Emoji/Sushi Emoji
You go out for sushi way too often. You also drink green juice. And you live in Southern California.
11. Red Dancer Lady
You like to p-p-party. Your life is a little bit like an LMFAO song, but in the best possible way.
