What Do Your Emoji Choices Say About You?

This post is part of our Non Sequitur Fridays series, which will feature a different Wistian's take on a non-Wistia-related topic each week. It's like our "employee of the month" but less "of the month"-y. Meryl Ayres is the blog editor at Wistia. She loves forcing teammates to participate in group activities. Hence this post.

If you've got a smartphone, you're probably familiar with emojis. They're those little images that you can insert into texts, tweets, or any sort of digital communication. Fun fact: the word emoji literally translates to "picture character" in Japanese.

They say that emojis are a window to the soul. A path to the truest heart.

Just take a look at the last three emojis you used. They probably indicate things about your personality, your communication style, or simply your recent mood.

Or maybe, just maybe, they paint an authentic, existential portrait of the human condition.

Either way, we thought it would be interesting to ask some Wistians about the last three emojis they sent. I used to be a middle school teacher, so I also asked them to come up with nicknames based on their emojis. Their responses may surprise you:

Jenny

The Scaredy Cat

Brendan

The soothsaying hare

Casey

The Confused Dad

Alyce

The Enthused Romantic

Kelsey

The Gone Girl

Trevor

The Donut Clapper

Meryl

The Nervous Entertainer

Margot

The YAAS Queen

Ezra

The Optimistic Captain

Camille

The Ambivalent Drinker

Emily

The Compliment Sandwich

Karla

The Passionate Mermaid

Andrew

The Chill Animal Lover

Danielle

The Easily-Amused Friend

Chris

The Enthusiastic Firestarter

Molly

The Excited Eater

Now it's your turn. Access your emojis and select the clock icon to see a list of your recent selections. Do you channel your emotions through the calm tiger? Or maybe the bold lady in the red dress? We'd love to hear what you find out, but at the very least, do it for your own self discovery.
