Handwriting analysis results: Ster

-30 C outside, can’t feel my toes, can’t feel my ankles either.  I am sitting here in my nightgown and winter coat.

The radiators going full blast, even the oven is turned on and opened up, and I am still freezing.  This would be an excellent opportunity to work on that novel about Scott’s last Antarctic expedition that I was planning, but I have to finish up some things first.  Namely, the last of the handwriting analyses.

If I somehow missed anybody who wanted an analysis, do not despair.  Just hang on to your samples because I might do handwriting analysis week again in a month or two.  Right now I am about analyzed OUT.

Here is Ster’s analysis, a quick and dirty one before I succumb to hypothermia.

Ster's handwriting sample

Ster’s writing looks an awful lot like mine.

The analysis:

Large writing:  a big-picture person

Concave t-bars:  good sense of humor

Large upper zone:  the main focus of interest is in the realm of imagination

De-emphasized lower zone:   Not much interested in the physical; non-materialistic

Upright slant occasionally tilting backward:  Rational, sometimes a little shy, changeable mood

Rounded letters:  kind, tolerant, easygoing

Simplified capitals:  Literary, unpretentious

Looped but open letters:  has difficulty keeping secrets.  Tries, but things just slip out.

Even baseline with slight ascension: good self-discipline, optimistic

Needle-pointed top of m and n:  curiosity, natural detective, desire to dig deep for answers

Both connected and unconnected letters:  A mix of rational and intuitive thinking styles, mostly intuitive

Now I’m frozen up to my knees so I must really stop here.  I hope you’ve gotten something out of this, Ster!

Handwriting analysis results: Raven

I have just finished doing my blog feature for tomorrow, it is -30 C outside and I am sitting here with rapidly freezing feet, so this has to be  a quick and dirty handwriting analysis.

Here we have Raven:

Raven's handwriting sample

Raven's handwriting sample

Raven’s writing reminds me of my high school friend Erin.  The notes we used to write each other!  Anyway, here we go with the analysis:

Rounded handwriting:  Gentle,  kind nature

Double looped letter o suggests that Raven has some secrets.

Slightly forward slant indicates friendliness and talkativeness

Connected letters indicate a logical, structured approach to problem solving

Low t-bars suggest self-esteem issues and the need to set higher goals for oneself

The flat topped r shows manual dexterity, the ability to build with the hands.

The I gesturing at itself shows the desire to be noticed

I can’t tell much about mood because this is written on lined paper which messes up the baseline.  Nor can I analyze the margins, because it’s a poem and not a letter so the margins aren’t natural.

Some lower loops closed, some open:  Physical desire is present, some of it gratified, some not

Pointed upper loops and tops of m’s and n’s indicate curiosity and the desire for knowledge.

My toes are going numb and I still have to do Ster’s analysis so I must end here.  Hope you got something out of this, Raven!




Handwriting analysis results: Susannah

Handwriting Analysis week continues into the weekend..

So far I have done the Limebird Writers  Laura, Beth, Aaron, KateSally,  and Neeks, and Limebird friends GillianShannon and Sarah.

Now it’s Susannah’s turn.

We have here another writer who uses threading – and we know from a previous sample that this indicates a diplomatic person who thinks very rapidly, almost too rapidly to communicate clearly.  The mind races and hand with the pen can barely keep up.

The large broad capitals in Susannah’s writing suggest that she has a strong need to be appreciated and validated, but she is a broadminded person too.

Small light writing indicate a sensitive person who notices small things and focuses inward, away from the material plane.

Long unclosed lower loops indicate an unfulfilled longing of some physical kind.  Emphasis on the lower zone indicates this longing is quite strong and a major part of the personality.

Short light t-bars that sometimes don’t cross the stem indicates a lack of confidence and some difficulty asserting oneself, but the rising final arch of the “m” indicates a desire for self-expression.

Connected letters indicate a logical mind.

Open loops indicate that Susannah is a very open person who likes to share.

Wide spaces between words show that Susannah needs space and doesn’t like feeling boxed in.

The baseline dips down toward the right, showing a slight tendency to feeling down or a lack of energy.  That often happens when you come all the way from Alabama with a banjo on your knee.  😉

How’d I do?  Let me know in the comments below.

Handwriting Analysis Results: Shannon


So far I have done the Limebird Writers  Laura, Beth, Aaron, KateSally,  and Neeks, and Limebird friend Gillian.

It’s Shannon’s turn.

Here’s Shannon’s handwriting sample.

Shannon's handwriting sample

Shannon's handwriting sample

Shannon has some interesting writing going on here.  And yes, it’s easier to read in print than in cursive (damn you, cursive).

The printed part of the sample has simplified block capitals, which suggest a literary bent.  Tall letters also suggest literary or intellectual ambitions.

Changeable slant:  Shannon’s approach to people varies considerably depending on her mood, she can be slightly standoffish to quite friendly.  It is likely she experiences intermittent bursts of energy interspersed with periods of lethargy and tiredness.

Big d-loop:  very sensitive to criticism

Light writing:  Sensitive emotional nature,  possibly spiritual

Incomplete lower loops:  Unfulfilled in some physical way

Hook formation on some capital letters: Gift of gab, loves to talk

Words rising and falling on the baseline:  another indicator of changeable moods

Sinking baseline:  She is inclined toward depression and/or pessimism

Illegible signature:  not significant by itself, people who sign things a lot usually have illegible signatures

The overall impression is of a person who is very sensitive emotionally, highly reactive to circumstances, has to fight against dark moods but is ambitious for her future in some intellectual sphere.


How’d I do?  Let me know in the comments.

Handwriting Analysis Results: Neeks

Handwriting Analysis Week will continue into the weekend…

So far I have done the Limebird Writers  Laura, Beth, Aaron, KateSally and  Gillian.

Now it’s Neeks’ turn!

Neeks' handwriting sample

And here’s what I can make out despite my eyestrain:

Slightly backward slant:  Somewhat introverted

Narrow letters:  Anxiety, social inhibition

Arcade formations in the M and N letters: keeps feelings to self;  desire for  free expression but afraid to rock the boat

Curved letters:  Accommodating nature

Tall “I” that points at itself:  Wants public recognition

Baselines:  can’t read because lined paper was used,  however, Neeks seems pretty self-disciplined

Open left-trailing y:  feeling unfulfilled in a physical way (no, I’m not going there, she may just want to play a sport and not be able to)

Connected letters: Logical

Precisely placed i-dots:  Careful, detail-oriented

Closed, looped letter o:  Secretive

Narrow pointy capital D:  Tense about something in the imaginative realm, maybe an unfinished project?

How’d I do?  Let me know in the comments.

For some reason, I’m now craving chocolate.  Sweet,  decadent, creamy chocolate.

Handwriting Analysis Results: Sarah

Handwriting Analysis Week continues.

I’ve done the Limebird Writers and friends  Laura, Beth, Aaron, KateSally and  Gillian.

Now it’s Sarah’s turn.  Sarah posted a link to her handwriting sample over on her blog.  Here it is:

Sarah's handwriting sample

Sarah's handwriting sample

The first thing I notice about Sarah’s writing is that it is greatly simplified.  The letter formation is clear and easy to read, but the style is idiosyncratic.  This kind of writing is often found among artistic people.  Sarah marches to her own drummer and it’s quite likely anything she does is distinctively hers.

She’s used lined paper, so I can’t tell anything about the baselines, but the lower loops get tangled with the letters below, which suggests that sometimes she gets caught up in other people to the point where she forgets about herself – but the tangling isn’t too bad, so the trait isn’t that major a problem.

Slight backward slant:   Slightly introverted

Simplified capitals (very simplified overall): Literary as well as artistic

No upper or lower loops:  Independent

Medium-heavy pressure:  Reasonably good energy level and vitality

Some needle points on the letter m:  Curious,  likes solving puzzles and mysteries

Narrow middle zone : Feels some tension in the social sphere


How did I do?  Let me know in the comments below.

Handwriting analysis results: Gillian

Handwriting analysis week continues!

So far I have done the Limebird Writers  Laura, Beth, Aaron, Kate, and Sally.  I’m waiting on a better sample from Neeks.

Now it’s Gillian’s turn.  Here’s her sample:

Handwriting sample from Gillian

Gillian's handwriting sample

And here’s my impression of Gillian’s personality based on her writing style:

Light pressure, relatively small letters, detailed letters:  Sensitive, gentle, spiritual

Curved letter forms:  Easygoing, pleasant, kind

Fast writing, simplified letter forms:  Fast thinker, powerful imagination

Upright slant that occasionally goes backward:  A rational person, introverted, withdraws into self when under pressure

Straight baseline, even margins:  Self-disciplined

Pointed top of letter “m” – investigator, researcher,  ferrets out information, plays detective

Big upper-zone loops, i-dot high :  Imaginative, ambitious

Full, closed lower loops:  satisfied with physical life ( good sex life? or just happy playing a sport or something similar)

Some simplified lower loops:  Independent

Wide word spacing:  needs plenty of space, physical and emotional

Connected letters:  Logical

Ascending signature:  Optimistic

Gillian is a somewhat introverted, but intellectually lively and emotionally sensitive person.  She is very imaginative, but her approach to life is self-disciplined and realistic.   Every so often she needs alone time to recharge her energy.


How’d I do?  Let me know in the comments below.

Handwriting Analysis Results: Sally

So I have done handwriting analysis of Laura, Beth, Aaron, Kate, and now it’s Sally’s turn.

Here’s her handwriting sample:

Sally's handwriting sample

Handwriting sample from Sally

Aside from making my stardust feel particularly shiny, Sally bets me that I can’t even read her sample.  Ha!  You lost that bet!

Sally has an interesting writing style called threaded writing.  People who write this way have minds that work so fast that their writing can’t keep up and sometimes other people have difficulty following.  Threaded writing also suggests a flexible, adaptable mind.

Upright slant:  Independent, rational

Small writing:  Humility, ability to concentrate on details.  Often found in handwriting of scientists

Large loops in upper zone:  Huge imagination, idealistic, prone to daydreaming

Big broad capitals, open “o” :  Likes to be center of attention, loves to talk

Simple letter “I” : Literary, unpretentious

Mixture of connected and disconnected letters:   Both logical and  intuitive.

Open lower loops trailing leftward:  Preoccupied with the past

Lowercase “g” shaped like figure 8:  Cultured

Weak t-bars:  unassertive, needs to work on self-confidence

Signature ascending:  Optimistic

How’d I do?  Let me know in the comments below.

If you’d like a handwriting analysis,  you can put a link to your handwriting sample in the comments.

Handwriting Analysis Results: Kate

As you may know, I am doing free handwriting analyses all week.  I’ve already done Laura, Beth and Aaron, and now it’s Kate’s turn.

Here we go.  The sample:

Kate's writing sample

Handwriting sample from Kate

I can identify the following characteristics:

90 degree slant: (writing does not lean forward at all)  Independence, self-control, neutrality, self-sufficiency.

Straight baseline:  Realistic,  disciplined

Idiosyncratic letter formations:  Artistic, creative

Almost no loops:   Gets to the point

Long terminal strokes:  Holds on to people and things, doesn’t like to let things go

The top of the letter M forms sharp points:  curiosity, likes research and investigation, natural detective

Simplified writing, block capitals:  Literary

Small capitals:  Humility

Disconnected letters:  Intuitive thinker

Broad letters, wide spacing:  Generosity, adventurousness, fearlessness

The overall impression is that of a strong, independent personality who does things her own way.



Was I right? Let me know in the comments.

I am doing handwriting analysis all this week.  Want one?  Just post me a link to your sample.

Handwriting analysis results: Aaron and Beth

This week I’m doing handwriting analysis.   I’ve already done Laura’s and today

it’s Aaron and Beth’s turn.

In alpahabetical order, here’s Aaron’s sample.

Aaron's handwriting sample

Aaron's handwriting sample

Aaron’s writing has the following characteristics:

Simplified, disconnected letters with no upper or lower loops:  Literary.  Intuitive thinker.  Unpretentious, straightforward.  No-nonsense.

Slight forward slant:  Friendly, respects social boundaries

Large writing:  Enthusiasm.  Philsophical bent. Sees the big picture, not hung up on details.  Doesn’t like small spaces or feeling “boxed in”.

Pointed top of the letter M:  Investigative mind,  wants to get to the bottom of things, loves a mystery

Ascending lines,  tall capital A in signature, underscored signature: Optimistic, fun,  energetic, self-confident.

And here we have Beth:

Beth's handwriting sample

Beth's handwriting sample

In Beth’s writing we see these characteristics:

Leading stroke:  “My” begins with a curved leading stroke, which indicates tactfulness,  consideration of the feelings of others, and sometimes difficulty with being direct.

Narrow margins: Friendly, social, not many boundaries

Simplified capitals:  Literary (as are all handwriting characteristics such as printing which resemble the kind of text you see in books rather than fancy penmanship).

Simplified capital “I” :  modest, likable personality.  (A huge ornate “I” would indicate the opposite).

Curved writing:  Easygoing, sociable, pleasant.

I-dots far forward of the stems:  excited about the future, a little impatient for it to get here.  Optimistic.  Visionary.

Closed o’s with loops:  Beth doesn’t automatically tell everything she knows.  She can be trusted to keep a secret.

Wide loops:  Sensitive.

But no wide loops on the letter “d”!  Beth is tougher in the face of criticism than you might think!

Heavier pressure:  Strong-willed.  The “iron fist in the velvet glove”.  Sensual.  Likes luxury.  (light writing would indicate spirituality and rejection of materialistic things).

Emoticons and Xs:  humorous, affectionate.

So was I right or was I way off?  Let me know in the comments.

Keep those handwriting samples coming.  I’m doing this all week.  I might even do samples of famous artists, if enough people are interested.
