What does your handwriting say about you?

Working at the library, I come across a lot of interesting (and not so interesting) books.  Yesterday someone had turned in a book about analyzing handwriting and so I checked it out.

This is the book:

Today at my other job was spent analyzing my handwriting and my co-workers handwriting.  Mostly without their knowledge, I'd just look at it and think, "Hmmmm. . . she slants to the right. Interesting. . ."

So, if you want to know what your handwriting says about you, here's a little way to tell. (I have no idea if this is accurate, but it's cool none the less)


A right slant (////) signals one who responds strongly to emotional situations. They are caring, warm and outgoing-- their heart rules their mind.
A vertical slant (llll) writer tries to keep their emotions in check-- mind rules their heart.
A left slant writer (\\\\) will conceal their emotions and is observed as cold and indifferent.


The size of the writing indicates the writer's desire to be noticed.  A large size likes to be noticed and stands out in a crowd.  A medium size is adaptable and fits into a crowd.  Small is introspective and does not seek attention, while very small is private and stays out of the limelight.


The baseline can help judge a person's emotional stabability and disposition. (This is if you write in a straight line, or if it tilts up or down)  If a person has a normally straight baseline it means they are determined and stay on track.  If it is rising it means the are optimistic, upbeat, and have a positive attitude.  If it falls it means they are tired and pessismistic.  If it is erratic, it means they are wavering and have no definite direction.

Kind of interesting, right?

I thought so.

Thanks for your comments! I really do love them! I'm a slacker when it comes to responding, but it really makes my day to hear what you have to say :)
