comment What is a good font for a CV?
@scott So there is certainly reason to be cautious about interpreting this study - there are many assumptions that may not hold. The 'objective criteria' in this study is based on Thurstone’s Law of comparative Judgment. The law is not a 'truth' but a useful assumption. In addition, statistical analyses assume that a sample represents a larger population. I assume the approach is valid, though the article doesn't say how participants were selected. But to say 'all data can only be subjective' is a strong claim.

@scott Also note that the primary study is publicly available. The Nature piece is a perspective piece.

comment What is a good font for a CV?
@scott the study tests how a sample of readers perceive credibility of an applicant based on the cv. The font is the treatment effect, and the perception of credibility is the effect. This is how science is done. Te interpretation may be subjective but the magnitude of difference attributable to font can still be objectively estimated.

@scott the article uses experimental evidence to provide an objective conclusion instead of an opinion

also, it is not clear to me if the letters are 'text' or something else; they are generated with the "Tex Text" extension

sort of what I am after, except it is not clear how to 'set the stroke'. When I try to increase the width under 'stroke style', nothing happens. Also, how do I do 'dynamic offset'?
