What Your Handwriting Reveals

Graphologists claim that your handwriting can reveal clues to your personality. There are many small details that provide clues to your personality in addition to several generalizations. Let's see if any of these observations ring true for you.

Small handwriting is associated with being studious, shy, meticulous and concentrated.

Large handwriting is associated with being an outgoing, attention-loving person.

Average handwriting is associated with being well-adjusted and adaptable.

Wide spacing between words means you enjoy your freedom. It also means that you don't typically enjoy large crowds and you don't like to be overwhelmed.

Narrow spacing between words means that you can't stand being alone and you tend to crowd people.

Having rounded letters is typically associated with being artistic or creative.

Having pointed letters can mean you are intense, intelligent, curious and aggressive.

People who write with connected letters are associated with being logical and systematic.

Crossing the very top of the 'T' generally means you have good self-esteem, are optimistic and ambitious.

Crossing the middle of the 't' generally means you are confident and comfortable in your own skin.

Leaving open letters (like not closing an 'O') typically means you are expressive, social and talkative.

Writing a closed letter 'O' indicates you are a private person and an introvert.

If the dot on your 'i' lands high above the letter, you are considered to be imaginative.

If your dot lands to the left of the letter 'i,' then you might be a procrastinator.

If the dot is perfectly over the 'i,' you are considered to be detail-oriented, empathetic and organized.

If the dot of your 'i' has a circle, then you are considered to be a visionary or child-like.

If the dot looks more like a slash, then you might be overly self-critical.

So ... what does your handwriting say about you?

:) And then there are the Jesuit-trained sheep such as myself who all produce perfectly crafted, identical polished MS, page after page of Italic Script which could all have been written by the same person ...
Trivial Pursuits, anyone?
According to some 'expert opinions' the 913 pages of the famous Domesday Book appear to have been copied down by ONE SINGLE SCRIBE (with minor notes & corrections in an unidentified second 'fist').
How long would that have taken in the early 13th Century, with the goose feather quill and handmade ink available at the time of writing?? LOL

Paul: I can't even begin to imagine how much time it would take to copy 913 pages with a quill pen. And how many times would they have to dip that quill pen in the ink per page? Boggles the mind!

Thanks for your comment.
