Here’s another one from the folks at Wired: The QWERTY Effect: How Typing May Shape the Meaning of Words

It’s interesting, but as the guys doing the research point out: “the study only shows a correlation rather than clear cause-and-effect.”

Specifically, the QWERTY keyboard may gradually attach more positive meanings to words with more letters located on the right side of the layout (everything to the right of T, G and B).

Man, I’ve heard some dumb ideas, but that one takes the cake.
