You know how they say that someone’s handwriting tells you something about them? Well, how about how someone writes out their phone number? I was just going through and updating my contacts, some of whom are on Facebook, and I realized how many different ways there are to write a phone number:


This is how I write phone numbers, the “proper” method as I like to call it:
(555) 123-4567


The no separation method:
5551234567


The spaces for separation method:
555 123 4567


The all dashes method:
555-123-4567


The periods method:
555.123.4567


And not to confuse things, but don’t forget those that add the 1 before the area code (and not to mention people outside of the US who have a whole slew of numbers we don’t want to mess with).


That’s pretty much the lot of them – which kind of person are you?
