What Your Favorite Emoji Says About You

by Megan Grant

Human beings don't need to speak anymore, because now we can text. And half the time, we don't even text because we can just use emoji. So what does your favorite emoji say about you? I like to think you can tell a lot about a person based on the emoji they use. For instance, my gal pal and I are both frequently caffeinated, so we exchange the cup of coffee emoji quite a bit. From this, you can deduce that at any given point, I am either bouncing off the walls or passed out in a dead slumber.

With new emoji being regularly rolled out, half the fun in having a smartphone is scrolling through the options and finding things you didn't even know existed. It's like being surprised on Christmas morning, or your birthday, or whatever your holiday-full-of-surprises of choice is. For instance, in writing this article, I discovered the egg-in-a-pan emoji. I love eggs. I love them fried, scrambled, boiled, and even deviled. And regardless of the nature of the conversation, at some point today, I will be sending an egg-in-a-pan emoji.

I randomly selected 10 emoji and have included what they mean about you. These are all researched and backed by science. You're welcome.

1. The Pile Of Poo

You feel like the universe is constantly defecating all over you, but you solider on with a smile. Good for you.

2. The Lipstick Print

You're quite possibly the only person who's mastered the art of overlining your lips without looking like a clown from Ringling Bros.

3. The Broken Heart

Give me his or her name and details – I'll handle this. You get a Snickers bar and pick out something on Netflix. I'll be back soon for girls' night.

4. The Expressionless Face

The same people complain to you all the time, and this is the face you make.

5. The Slice Of Pizza

You must be the coolest person in the world, because pizza is the answer to literally every question. What do you want for lunch? Pizza. Do we have any leftovers in the fridge? Pizza. Who are you voting for this year? Pizza.

6. The Fiery Flames

You suffer from chronic heartburn. You cheated and had a cup of coffee this morning, and now you're sitting at your desk ready to collapse. Take a Prilosec and grab some shuteye. You'll be fine.

7. The Woman With Her Arms Crossed In Front Of Her

You love telling people no. "No, I do not want mayo on my burger!" "No, I do not want to hug your children!" "No, I will not make out with you!" Embrace the power of no! No is fantastic!

8. The Laughing With Tears Face

The people in your life are so funny that they actually send you into a fit of tears. Additionally, you may or may not pee when you laugh.

9. The Peace Sign

You're the vegan activist of the group. The peacekeeper. The one who refuses to watch TV because fast food commercials are brainwashing us with subliminal messages.

10. The Gun

You're incredibly passive aggressive and like to threaten people with death while laughing casually. You might occasionally be a tiny bit frightening.
