No, it is because you compensated at some time for your system
misconfiguration by increasing the pt sizes
12pt is considered the minimum size for presentations, and a good
default for texts that need to be read by everyone, including people
with bad eyesight. So 12pt is big.
Most people with good eyes prefer 10-11pt even when reading long
