Your Handwriting What Does It Mean?

It is National Handwriting Day.  Have you ever just written something down and then stared at your handwriting and wondered? For most people our handwriting is as much as our personality as our sense of humor.  Have you ever wondered what your hand writing means?  Since is is National Handwriting Day

I did some research to find out what it all means and why we may write the way we do.

* If your letters slant to the left: Indicates introspection and a lot of emotional control.

* If letter slant to the right: Reveals a person who’s more impulsive, outgoing, friendly, and emotionally open.

* If letters are straight up and down: The sign of someone who’s ruled by the head, not the heart.

* Letters that slant in more than one direction: indicates versatility and adaptability.

* An erratic slant usually means a lack of flexibility.

* Heavy pressure writing (like you can feel the rib made on the back of the paper) means the writer is agitated.

* Moderate pressure (the writing is dark, but you can’t feel the rib on the other side of the paper) shows ability to deal with stress.

* Light pressure indicates someone who seems to take life in stride.

* Tiny Letters: indicate the writer is somewhat low on self esteem but quite high on brain power.

* Small Letters: are the hallmark of quiet, introspective types. They’re generally detail-oriented and have good powers on concentration.

* Large Letters: are usually the sign of a confident, easygoing individual.

* Huge Letters: denote someone who’s loud, theatrical and needs to be the center of attention at all times.

* Wide Letters (their width and height are about the same): The mark of someone who’s open and friendly.

* Narrow Letters: Show someone who’s kind of shy and inhibited but also very self-disciplined.

* Letters that don’t touch: are the sign on an impulsive, artistic, sometimes impractical free thinker.

* Some letters connecting: Means the writer’s personality blends logic and intuition.

* All letters making contact: The calling card of someone who’s highly cautious.

* A curved first mark: Shows a person who’s traditional and plays by the rules.

* A straight beginning stroke: Reveals someone who’s rigid and doesn’t like being told what to do.

* A final stroke straight across: is a clue that the writer is cautious.

* An end mark that curves up: shows generosity.

* Perfect penmanship: is the hallmark of a communicative person.

* An indecipherable scrawl: indicates a person who’s secretive, closed-up and likes to keep his thoughts to himself.
