When you get rich and famous and start signing autographs for your adoring fans, just beware that your handwriting might reveal a thing or about who you really are. So caution: rise to prominence at your own risk!
Graphologists have been studying the link between behavior and handwriting since the days of Confucius in 500 BC, when he warned us all to steer clear of “a man whose writing sways like a reed in the wind.”
Now, this science is used for a number of important purposes, including criminal investigations and even employment compatibility screening. According to certified graphologist Kathi McKnight, experts can take a look at your writing and determine over 5,000 over your personality traits. Crazy!
In order to assess the following qualities of your handwriting, write out a test sentence. Try something in cursive like, “It’s the little thing!” Then, assess your personality based on the following characteristics of your writing.
If your letters are big, you are more likely to be outgoing, to love attention, and to be people-oriented. Small letters can indicate the opposite — you might be shy, introverted, and have an easier time concentrating than others. Average-sized letters often mean that you are well-adjusted and adaptable.
Spacing between words
Wide spacing tends to mean that you enjoy being alone and do not like crowded spaces, whereas narrow spacing tends to mean that you prefer having a large group of being around you and that you do not like being alone.
A more sentimental, friendly, and social person might have right-slanted writing, whereas a more reserved person might have left-slanted writing. If you are a righty and you have left-slanted writing, or vice versa, you are more likely to be a rebellious person.
Dotting your i’s
“I’s” that are dotted high supposedly come from people who have imaginative personalities, whereas “i’s” that are dotted off to the side come from people who tend to procrastinate.
Crossing your t’s
If your cross is low on the “t”, you might be insecure and have lower ambitions, whereas if your cross is higher on the “t,” you might have higher goals and self-esteem.
Open and closed o’s
Connecting your letters often means that you are logical and that most of your decisions are factually based. If they are disconnected, you are more likely to be impulsive and imaginative.
Writing quickly indicates that you are impatient and that you do not like to waste time. If you take the time to craft every letter, you might be more organized, methodical, and artistic.
Heavy pressure when writing is a sign of commitment and extreme pressure is linked to uptightness. Light pressure indicates sensitivity.
Although this information just gives you a basic overview of graphology and not every analysis will apply to you, it might still provide you with an interesting general picture of who you are based on your handwriting.
