Based on how you type text messages, how loud you set your ringtones, and if you use custom faceplaces and ringtones you could be a creative, juggler, controller or facilitator. What’s even more frightning is the psychologist behind the study suggest that looking at how kids use their mobiles, one maybe able to determine their future career paths.
