How Many Of These Typical Types Of Texters Do You Know?

How Many Of These Typical Types Of Texters Do You Know?

Texting is a modern day phenomenon. Gone are the days when we texted just in case of an emergency, or a quick shorthand message when we are running late. We no longer go to the custom texts in our SMS folder to forward a quick note.

We now live in the world of the developed texting style, emojis, instant photographs, and hashtags. It is a world of video messages, and clips of voice messages sent as text messages. It is spelling faux pas, ‘text-hand type’, and sexting. People break up and break down via text message!

Everybody develops their own style within this world, as it is now considered the norm to own a mobile phone. Not answering a text is equivalent to not calling someone back, except the time-frame is smaller because texts are so quick and easy.

You have to be careful not to get pigeon-holed with a certain type of texting, even though some do seem more fun than others (emojis!). Read ahead and see if you recognize these types of texters.

The Vocal Texter: People Who Only Send Voice Messages

    The wonderful discovery of sending voice messages as text messages has its perks. For example, if you want to get a lot of information out quickly, or need to document something to pass on ASAP.

    However, it can be a little embarrassing if you’re on a packed train and your mum needs to let you know she has press-starched your underpants, or something like that. You have been warned. Use your fingers people!

    The Emoji Enthusiast: People Who Only Use Emojis

      Okay, we get it, emojis are fun! However, you have to draw the line somewhere. Cute is cute, and emojis are… still emojis. Plus, there is a time and a place! If you otherwise have something to say, just say it. Pictures are fun sometimes, but we’re still adults.

      The Photo Freaks: People Who Always Send Lots Of Photos That You Aren’t Really All That

        Did you see that picture of your friends new baby… again?! A picture says a thousand words, unless you kind of want it to be quiet. While technology is breaking ground every day, and we love a visual update, keep the excessive images to yourself. Just because it entertains you, doesn’t mean it entertains everybody else.

        The Grammar Duds: People Who Always Fumble Their Words (To Our Amusement)

          We really rely on autocorrect too heavily. Perhaps we just get a bit excited in our busy lives, and don’t take time to double-check before we send. Whatever the case, there is a whole world of websites out there dedicated to the ‘slips-of-thumb’, otherwise known as ‘autocorrected to something bizarre and/or hysterical’.

          The Crazy Clowns: People Who Text-Laugh Way Too Much

            If you’re not into the LOL phenomenon, we can also appreciate the written laugh, also known as the old school ‘HA HA’. It will never really go out of technological fashion, but keep it to the appropriate length of humor. Otherwise, we might catch on to the fact that you’re faking it (even if we can never really be sure). 

            The Long-Winded Texters: People Who Say Way More Than You Bargained For

            unnamed

              It’s a toss up of what is worse between the ones who say too much when you don’t want them to text and those who say what you don’t wish to hear when you do want them to text. The ‘too much information’ text is always a bummer. Text messages very easily become essays these days, and whether its a break-up text or a hefty reply to an attempted dismissal, we hope the long-winded texter doesn’t check in too often!

              50+ Best Motivational Quotes To Prepare You For Any Challenges In Life
