Determining Personality Through Handwriting: Is It Possible?

If you’re one of those people who always get that ‘fix your handwriting‘ note after you get your work checked, you can agree with me when I say that it isn’t that easy to just change the way your hand forms words, right? But here’s news on that, according to the science of graphology, a person’s handwriting can indicate more than 5,000 different personality traits! No need to worry about fixing that handwriting now (unless it really is that bad, try using a better pen).

It’s often said that the messier the handwriting, the smarter the person is (cheers for all the ‘pairon se likhtay ho?‘ fellows) and that’s always debatable, but studies do predict many personality traits according to the slant in your handwriting, mostly working with cursive writing because that provides more information to be studied.

Here’s what different styles determine:

Determining Personality Through Handwriting Is Possibl

If Your Writing Slants

To the right: You are open to the world around you, you like to socialize with other people, possessing an outgoing persona.

To the left: You prefer to work alone or behind the scenes. If you’re right-handed and your writing slants to the left, you are likely to express rebellion and revolt.

Not at all: You tend to be logical and practical. You are guarded with your emotions and possess a more reserved personality.

If The Size Of You Letter Is

Large: You have a personality like your writing, big. It may suggest that you are outgoing and have a liking for the spotlight.

Small: You are a focused person with a clear vision and do not face trouble concentrating. You tend to be introspective and on the shy side.

Average: You are well-adjusted and flexible, adaptable.

If Your Loops Are

Closed for L (the upstroke overlaps the down stroke): You often feel tense, this implies that you are restricting yourself in some way.

Full for LYou are a spontaneous, relaxed and expressive person.

Closed for E: You often find yourself skeptical and unswayed by emotional arguments.

Full for EYou are open minded and enjoy trying new things.

If Your S‘s Are

Round: You have a desire to please and seek compromise, you avoid confrontation. 

Pointy: You are intellectually seeking and like to study new things. The higher and pointier the peaks you make with your S‘s, the more ambitious you are.

Open at the bottom: You might not be following your heart (example: you always wanted to be a dancer, but you have a career in law).

Printed: You are versatile.

The list doesn’t stop at just these, but these traits are among the most basic and can suffice to identifying basic personality characteristics.

It should be kept in mind that any studies or observations alike are generalized and never a hundred percent accurate for every person, our individuality differentiates us from others in every aspect and though we can relate to many things generalized, it doesn’t mean every study conducted will apply to every person.

But as far as this topic is concerned, do you agree? Do you think this information implies to you? Or was it inaccurate in determining personality styles? Do share your thoughts in the comments, but I have to say, determinable or not, it does make you think, what kind of a person am I? and though that can never be dictated completely, it does provide a hint at understanding your inner self.
