Are you happy or miserable?

Posted on 12 May 2009 by BNG Staff

The happiest people are likely to be named Judy or Joshua, and the most miserable are Lynn and Ben. At least, that's the word from psychologist Dr. David Holmes of Britain's Manchester Metropolitan University, who claims people's personalities change to fit the name their parents gave them. In addition to Judy and Joshua, the happiest people are named Stephanie, Linda, Pam, Pat, Matthew, Jason, Terry and Barry. The unhappiest women tend to be Charlotte, Tina, Amy or Tara, while the most dejected males are likely to go by the names of Andrew, Edward, Tim or Owen. Holmes insists that our names are similar to brand names in that people associate certain characteristics with them and compare them to famous people who have the same name. When that happens, an individual's personality can actually be shaped to fit his or her name and the assumptions others make about that name.

Create a Good Signature

Posted on 30 Sep 2008 by BNG Staff

Practice! Practice! Practice! But first ask two questions. What do you like about your signature? and What do you dislike about your signature? Decide which shapes look good and what shapes look bad. Some cursive letters look better and some print letters look better. I found that the letter "G" looks better in print than cursive. Add elements to your signature like shapes, squiggles, etc. Do your research.

One last thing, be prepared for questions and sometimes aggravations. Banks will pause when they see that your signature is different, they may give you a hard time when cashing a check with your new signature, credit card companies may do the same and let's not forget the IRS and the dreaded tax returns. If you change your signature for the better than just be aware there could be some growing pains.
