I believe that is a matter of opinion and personal taste and the answers you get will probably be a varied as the colors of the rainbow. Generally, I would stick with fonts that are more standardized for professional work, but then again it depends on what the font is going to be used for.

Yes I suppose so, but what in your opinion would you use if you were to type out a professional document?

Serif, or Roman, typefaces are named for the features at the ends of their strokes. Times Roman and Garamond are common examples of serif typefaces. Serif fonts are probably the most used class in printed materials, including most books, newspapers and magazines.

Taken from wikipedia, it looks like the most common font used in magazines books newspapers etc are Times Roman and Garamond, I hope this helps. Click here for whole article

I think Candara because the numbers go up and down and it looked so much more professional for me as well.

Times new Roman is what i use when i need to type up important letters or CV's, Arial/Cambria is what i use for general typing. Hope it helps.
