Analyze Your Handwriting Exercise

By Britney Pieta

Have you ever wondered what your handwriting says about you? Each person’s handwriting is unique like a snowflake. Things such as the way your writing slants, the size of your letters, or the way you form your letters can reveal many things about your personality and inner qualities you have. It also may reflect your current mood. So take a few seconds to really look at your writing and see where you fall in according to this website:

If Your Writing Slants…

To the right: You are open to the world around you and like to socialize with other people.

To the left: You generally like to work alone or behind the scenes. If you are right-handed and your handwriting slants to the left, you may be expressing rebellion.

Not at all: You tend to be logical and practical. You are guarded with your emotions.

If the Size of Your Letters Is…

Large: You have a big personality. Many celebrities have large handwriting. It may suggest that you are outgoing and like the limelight.

Small: You are focused and can concentrate easily. You tend to be introspective and shy.

Average: You are well-adjusted and adaptable.

If your loops are….

Closed for L (meaning the upstroke overlaps the downstroke): Feeling tense? This implies you are restricting yourself in some way.

Full for L: You are spontaneous and relaxed and find it easy to express yourself.

Closed for E: You tend to be skeptical and are unswayed by emotional arguments.

Full for E: You have an open mind and enjoy trying new things.

If Your S’s Are…

Round: You are a people-pleaser and seek compromise. You avoid confrontation.

Pointy: You are intellectually probing and like to study new things. The higher and pointier the peaks, the more ambitious you are.

Open at the bottom: You might not be following your heart. For example, you always wanted to be an artist, but you have a career in finance.

Printed: You are versatile.

Finding a ‘Third’ Space

Where do you like to go when you write? What inspires you to get out that pen and paper, laptop or other device and gets the creative juices flowing? A ‘third space’ is an area that isn’t normally used which can help facilitate one’s writing. Sometimes it can be refreshing to take a pad of paper and pen to the beach and jot down ideas, or grab some post its and a notebook and create an artistic direction for your writing.

Wherever it is you enjoy writing, the most important thing is that you WRITE. If you had a choice, where would your favorite ‘third space,’ be? If you don’t have one, imagine what it would be like to have such a space which allowed you the freedom to write, even if for 15 minutes a day.
