Graphology says that handwriting can reveal the secrets of one’s soul. But even if you’re not an expert, you can “read” more about a person than just what is written there. About yourself or someone else.
Handwriting has hundreds of properties by which you can infer something that can be used for some self-examination. Take a look at the following twelve characteristics with an open mind. Do they match your handwriting? And for that of others?
Uppercase vs lowercase
A person who uses capital letters wants to stand out, be seen and understood. You are more extroverted than introverted and you have a lot of self-confidence. Capital letters also belong to enthusiastic, active people. With very large letters, these qualities lead to impulsiveness and arrogance. The opposite is true for someone who uses lowercase letters. He has strong focus and concentration but is on the humble side. If the letters are too small, this indicates uncertainty and a wait-and-see attitude.
together vs loose
If you write letters together, this indicates strong intelligence and intuition. A person who uses single letters uses their logic and has difficulty making decisions.
All handwriting characters often lean in the same direction. A little to the left or more to the right. Those who write with a right sense, live from the heart, are friendly and impulsive, and value friends and family very much. If someone’s handwriting is tilted to the left, that person is more focused on “things” than people. This writer is reserved, introverted, and self-centered. If the letters are almost straight, then you are dealing with a stable, practical and level person.
curly vs angular
If the handwriting appears round and wrinkled, it is attributed to adaptable people. Handwriting that has a pointed, angular and pointed appearance is more likely to belong to people with a strong temper and impatience.
dot on i
There are people who make a small circle from each point: this is a circle associated with a playful, creative or artistic nature. You like to stand out. Will you stay true to the point? You are elegant and have a sense of detail.
lack of space
If someone starts writing excitedly and the last words don’t fit on the paper or are pressed near the sentence above, this may mean that the person is having trouble organizing their time. If you use the space on the paper evenly, the boundaries will feel good.
y . ring
Take a look at the “pending” loop under y or ij, because you can infer all kinds of things from there as well. The long, narrow ring belongs to a reserved person who is not quick to call people’s friends. People who have great friends make a big circle ring, as if they want to include everyone. A very long episode reveals that we are dealing with someone who loves to travel. The short ring belongs to people who prefer to be where their heart is: at home.
