What Does Your Handwriting Say About You? (INFOGRAPHIC)

Each and every one of us has a different handwriting and it can tell a whole deal about our character. In fact, the way we write can demonstrate more than 5,000 different personality traits.

Despite the fact that we write less and less in this era of laptops, tablets, and cellphones, we still use the pen from time to time and it can be very interesting to know what lies behind our penmanship.

The study of handwriting

Known as graphology, the study of handwriting uses different quirks like the size and shape of your letters, the space between words and other characteristics like loops, slanting, to name a few. Right from childhood, your handwriting begins to form.

And aside from knowing our personality traits can make us learn about ourselves, graphology is used for several reasons.

  • Employers use it to help them choose the most qualified candidates for their company
  • Psychological evaluations
  • Marital compatibility
  • Medical problems
  • Jury screening, etc.

This science is often called a pseudoscience because some think that graphology isn’t accurate at determining psychological as well as physical attributes.

  1. Hey Nataly!

    This is an awesome post! I’ve always been fascinated by handwriting and dream analysis. I’ve tried to analyze my handwriting for years, however, just like everything else in my life, I change it up depending on my mood. Most of the time I write slanted to the right, however a third of the time I’ll write straight up and down. So I wonder, if there are others like me and how effective a handwriting analysis would do in the court of law. Truly, it couldn’t be used to incriminate someone right?

    Interesting analysis though. Thanks for shedding some light on it.!



    1. Hi Bren!

      So glad you liked my post. You are not the only one to change your handwriting since I too change it depending on my mood. Actually, I had to forge my signature in an imaginative way because when I was young, a bank clerk asks me to change my signature because I wouldn’t sign my name the same way twice and it could create confusion when I write a check.

      But I thought it could be fun to analyze our handwriting anyway! Usually, I write straight up and like to make lots of loops especially with my “p”, my “q” and my “o”. I also put the dot high and slightly to the right over the “i”. The explanation for this is quite accurate.

      Anyway, I am really happy you came to visit! Take care! 😉


  2. Wow, this was interesting. Most of it was right on but like Bren my writing varies. If I’m busy then it’s a messy thing. Plus I’m a lefty so my writing is weird already. LOL What’s most interesting is how they can determine diseases like high blood pressure and Alzhiemer’s.

    Thanks for sharing this infographic.


    1. HI Cori!

      My handwriting too changes depending on how I feel. If I am tired or busy, it’s messy. What a coincidence, I’m also a lefty! lol! 🙂 I was also surprised that it could determine diseases, especially high blood pressure!

      Glad you liked it and have a great week ahead! 😉
