- what does your signature say about you?
You don't write that often. you email, you text using the standard fonts and everything seems similar. however, you still sign documents, contracts, applications & more. That is where your personality, your personality traits are visible.
for starters there are 8 parameters to look at:
- Size of the letters
- Slant of the writing
- Space/alignment to the straight line
- Pressure on paper while writing
- Dotting the i
- Crossing the t
- The y,g loop
- Sharp ‘n’s and ‘m’s
each one is detailed below
1. Size of the letters
the thumb rule is, 'the bigger the letters, the more generous the person'
with love, adulation, money, charity, etc.
bigger letters are also a sign of an outgoing personality or gregarious nature.
2. Slant of the writing
If you draw a straight vertical line and take that as a reference for the handwriting in question you could say the following:
- left-slant - self centered. the left leaning the slant of the handwriting is, the more the person is attuned to him/herself and puts her/his own needs before those of the ones around or the family.
- straight up -balanced. the person is balanced in their approach to life, and does not choose self or family. the person has the capacity to think things through and decide what to do.
- right-slant - family/friends come first. emotional levels are higher with the slant. such people are likely to put others before themselves. they are also prone to cry at romantic movies and feel empathy
3. space/alignment to the straight line
the closer to the straight horizontal line the more grounded the individual.
the letters floating in the air may reflect the amount of time that the person spends on creating plans or thinking. these may also be castles in the air.
if the letters go into the baseline, this may be demonstrative of people who are likely to question everything about themselves and at times be too critical of their own actions or thoughts
4. pressure on paper while writing
we call this the passion quotient.
if you take the paper someone has written on and turn it over, you should be able to see the indentation of the writing.
the more pronounced the indentation, the more passion the person has or demonstrates in the activity.
a light pen may suggest the person is either not interested in the task at hand or generally likes to work on the bigger picture than on nitty gritty
5. dotting the i
dotting the i is considered the sign of someone who is meticulous and detail oriented.
if the dot is too close to the body of the i, it may show a need to re-check and re-confirm everything or the propensity to work on something beyond the hours required.
the dot flying off the i shows someone who couldn't be bothered with the small stuff. it shows someone who is careless and is prone to make errors.
a dot missing completed is just someone who is irresponsible.
6. crossing the t
the balanced is the one who crosses the t completely. this shows someone who can and will do the necessary required.
if the cross on the t is towards the left side, the person maybe prone to self-criticism.
if the cross on the t is towards the right side, the person is someone who finds fault with others.
an upward slant is a sign of forward looking, positive and ambitious person
a cross not connecting with the body of the t is symbolic of someone who thinks faster than they can write. these people are more interested in creating than managing.
a dagger shaped cross on the t, could be sign of bad temper
7. the y,g loop
the larger the loop, the greater the love of life.
the loop may also signify the sex drive and the larger the loop the more active the individual.
the want, desires in the materialistic world maybe gauged using this feature.
a straight line, of the y or g would be someone who likes their own company, is individualistic in approach to life and can spend hours by themselves.
Sharp ‘n’s and ‘m’s
'n' & 'm' need you to curve and complete the letter.
the curve is what is used to determine intelligence, insight or quick thinking.
the sharper the shape of the curve (think needle-like) shows a sharper intellect.
graphology is a very detailed science and this is just a quick introduction to get your interested.
take your own handwriting, or the ones around you and try it. the more you do it, the better you will get at it.
there are also some who suggest you can change your persona by deliberately changing your handwriting. you can. I suggest you do!
I also invite you to leave your specific requirement (what you would want to change about yourself or improve) and I will reply with what you can do with your signature
