My Character on Trial
My handwriting sample is self-analysed, so I am probably biased, but then I know myself fairly well (or should do after a lifetime). Still, it isn’t comfortable for me to do this. Not everything is positive, and it really does shed some light on my character faults.
My Sample Page
Margin placement analysis is quite complicated. I have simplified it here so as not to be too verbose.
I have used a normal left margin of 15% of the page, which means I have equilibrium of a simple life, conscious order and harmony.
The margin drifts slightly to the right as I descend the page, meaning I am trying to detach in an optimistic way from what I write, but it could also could indicate impulsiveness.
My right margin is small at about 8% of the page width, meaning I am sociable, and an extrovert, but can also mean that I have a tendency to defend myself from others or outside influences. The right margin is irregular with one blank block (A margin ghost) that should have been filled with words. The irregular margin indicates that I can have out of control emotions, be ambivalent or disordered. The block gap (Margin Ghost) says that I might have fear about making decisions for the future.
This is the relationship with the reader. In a non-header page, such as this, it is normal at 10-15% of the page. It suggests courtesy, good manners and self control.
This is indicative of how writers move on in life (turning the page). Mine is slightly small, showing a resistance to change.
Most of my ‘t’s’ are consistent, with a midline cross on the ‘t,’ which is reflective of balanced self-esteem. The slanting (left to right) vertical down-stroke is indicative of self control, reflection, objective decisions and actions. When crossing double ‘tt’s,’ I use a single rising cross stroke, indicating quickness and ingenuity.
Notice the cross on the double ‘tt’ on ‘go-getter’ word. The cross bar is (unusually for me) placed almost at the top of the down strokes. It may have been a subconscious raising of my own expectations. High cross bars indicate high self-esteem, ego and achievement. Rebellion can also be a negative aspect, especially if the cross bar is above the down stroke. (Sometimes a company might want that, especially if they wanted a job applicant to expand their business. A low cross bar on the ‘t’ indicates low placed self-esteem or a person who has no goals (a warning to employers).
I have a lot of inconsistencies in my ‘I,’ especially on the dot.
The downstroke is direct and simple, showing a quickness for comprehension but also that I feel some limitation for resources.
The light pressure on the dot, indicates a certain amount of mysticism, but dot placement is not very precise, sometimes missing (forgetfulness), sometimes left of its target, (procrastination or pessimism) , sometimes right (inattention to detail). Occasionally a slight concave jab appears (irritation). The solid dot represents loyalty.
More on my personality will be exposed next post… but if you want to learn more about your own writing, this website is really helpful.
Handwriting and Your Brain 🤓 🧠
Did you know, that handwriting is better for your brain than typing? The art of hand writing uses all parts of the brain, whilst typing does not. So if you find your mind getting a bit foggy (does come with aging), try writing a diary. Pick a favourite pen and make it an artwork.
You likely already guessed that these signatures belong to Donald and Melania Trump.
What do you think these signatures say about them?
The angular strokes are sharp, unforgiving. Donald has a very jagged ‘D’ that is large and full of self importance, but also closes off in a series of jagged angles, suggesting he is unapproachable and dismissive. The last name, he has given slightly more importance to the ‘T’ which is taller than all letters, suggesting surname means everything to him, but both names start with large capitals letter suggesting self importance.
There is pragmatism and intuitiveness in both signatures, but Melania doesn’t use her intuition. She, unlike Donald, is patient (waiting for rewards). Both are ego-centric and narcissistic, but Melania is the more grasping and mean spirited of the two (narrower writing all squished up with little curled hooks). She has big emphasis on the last name, so it is important to her. Both are very family oriented but in a self-interested closed fashion, excluding outsiders. There are tendencies for anger in both, but Melania keeps hers to herself. The high, short cross bar on her ‘T’ last name, with a long descender on it and also on the last ‘p,’ suggest her intense materialism associated with her marriage to Donald.
Interestingly, both of them have simple block type writing for composition of general text. Donald tends to use capitals for all written notes. This is a man who means what he says, wants to shout it, and is full of self importance. He doesn’t want anyone to misinterpret what he says.
Are you surprised?
