Handwriting Analysis: What His Signature Reveals About Him

  • ViewsIcon 36471

Want to learn more about that cute guy in your chemistry class? The answers to why he acts the way he does may be right at his fingertips! For hundreds of years graphologists, those who practice handwriting analysis, have insisted you can tell lots about a person's likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, even their moods and moral character, by the way they sign their name. What does your handwriting reveal about you? What can we learn about others from handwriting analysis?


Handwriting Analysis QuestionsWhat is graphology?

Graphology doesn't get much respect among academics in the United States, but much of the rest of the world finds it a reliable aid in figuring out people's personalities and motivations. The way we write actually reflects what's going on inside our heads rather than simply our hand coordination. Graphology doesn't study just how people make their letters, it concentrates on where the writing is located on a page, how smooth or jagged the lines are, and how legible it is. Psychologists, including Freud, thought of handwriting as a window to the conscious and unconscious mind. Trained professionals in the handwriting analysis field insist they can tell how smart, how honest, how stable, and how drug free a person is, just by looking at handwriting analysis.


Handwriting Analysis QuestionsHow is a signature different from the rest of what we write?

When you write paragraphs and sentences, you are communicating feelings and ideas. When you sign your name, you're revealing your public identity on a page. In other words, handwriting analysis reveals your true personality. Your signature reveals how you want the world to see you. If you are not the same person in public as you are in private, your signature will show a difference. If your guy signs his name much larger than the rest of what he's written, his public self image must be larger than his real self image. He might be compensating for feeling small inside by making his name extra big and cocky.


Handwriting Analysis QuestionsWhat does it mean if your handwriting slants one way or the other?

A very obvious slant to the left might be an indication the writer is reflective, plays it safe, and thinks carefully before making a decision. Depending on how pronounced the slant is to the right, the words dynamic, impulsive, outgoing, and friendly come to mind.


Handwriting Analysis QuestionsIsn't some of this just common sense?

Yes. You don't need an advanced degree to figure out a neat signature comes from a neat person, a tense person will press down harder on the page, and a person who is feeling more up will write in that direction. Tiny letters might mean too little self-confidence, while an illegible signature may mean you're feeling insignificant and trying to hide who you are. Writing that is full of mistakes or slanted in all directions is probably penned by someone anxious, frustrated or maybe even drug impaired.


Handwriting Analysis QuestionsWhat does the size of your handwriting mean?

Graphologists believe that large handwriting comes from a person with energy, confidence, and a full schedule. Average-sized writing signifies a busy, well-balanced person who is also comfortable spending time alone. Small writing comes from a good head for details, an organization maven who is especially strong in math and science.


Handwriting Analysis QuestionsCan you produce handwriting without using your hands?

Try this experiment. Hold a pen in your mouth and sign your name on a piece of paper. If you were forced to learn to write this way, after enough practice you would eventually produce the same "handwriting" you have now. Studies show that people who have lost the use of their hands eventually produce the same unique handwriting they had when they could use their hands. This proves that it's not really our hands that decide which way our pens go across the paper, it's our brains.

Haha I just started to write with my mouth. It's hard! But I just did my signature and it matches with me being good at math and science(small hand writing) and like mine slants to the left.

mouth writing? I wonder...
Posted January 24, 2013
Mouth writing is nearly impossible for me! I can't seem to control the pen. It's like writing with my right hand, only little worse :/ (I'm left handed)
