It used to be the handshake that was a telling introduction to the kind of person you are. Now, it's the email farewell, according to Tracy Spicer, who claims "how you sign off your emails shows more about your personality than you realise."
I'm a 'cheers' girl if I'm writing to a friend or acquaintance; and quite like 'regards' on a professional basis, or even 'kind regards' if brown-nosing is required.
But I may have to reconsider my favoured farewell. Spicer is also a 'cheers' fan and reports that one of her friends reacted with this: “You’re not one of those ‘cheers’ girls are you?” she gasped in horror. “I can’t stand those people! We’re not in a shout at a pub. It’s unprofessional.” Oops."
Oops, indeed. What's your choice of email sign-off? And what does it say about you?
