What Your Handwriting Says About You [Infographic]

by Staff Writers | The Web Writer Spotlight: Apr 4, 2014


What does your handwriting say about you?

According to research from the National Pen Company, your handwriting can give away clues to about 5,000 different personality traits based on the way you space your letters, how you sign your name, and even how you connect the letter 'o' and 's' to other letters in a word. Your handwriting can even be used to identify potential health problems, including schizophrenia and high blood pressure. Moreover, your handwriting can be used to detect how much energy you have and when you are lying. Surprising, right?

The scientific validity behind handwriting analysis (also known as graphology) is debatable, but it is still often used by psychologists, employers and even law court officials to evaluate and determine a person's nature and personality traits through patterns revealed by their handwriting. Whether you mind your "p"s and "q"s, dot your "i"s and cross your "t"s can say a lot about how you think and behave.  

For example, the National Pen study reveals people with small handwriting tend to be shy, studious and meticulous, whereas outgoing people who love attention have larger handwriting. Those who write letters close together are intrusive and crowd others, while illegible signatures mean a person is private and difficult to understand. Check out the infographic below to learn what your handwriting says about you. Click the image to enlarge.
