When I turned seventeen my grandmother had me write a one page letter of nonsense with my signature and then submitted it to a certified handwriting analyst. Actually it was more like a half a page of nonsense and a half a page of my signature. The specialist responded with a three page analysis (typed). I remember my grandmother read it before me and highlighted the parts she thought were important.
"Roadblocks will be overcome by you but you pay a price for your determination. Also, be careful of overextending yourself. With your highly independent spirit you will do your own thing in spite of advice which could be contrary to your plans. In a few words, you are deep, sure-footed, determined, secretive, poised and disciplined, emotionally drawn inward. You seek peace and isolation and at the same time seek distinction and recognition."
Sounds like an excessive horoscope right?
Secretive is an odd word that jumped out at me. It sounds like an insult but it's true. I am still fairly secretive and emotionally drawn inward. I was just reading through tons of little papers and napkins that I wrote thoughts on. Stuff I would never share here. I would never share them with anyone. I'll share just enough to get your attention.
Those are the parts grandma found interesting. I, however, found out a whole lot more. Mind you, I'm sharing because this was the me at seventeen. Not the me now. Well, kind of the me now.
Here are tidbits:
(This was the first line.) Looking at your writing I see a person who is very intense and deep. Not too many people can understand your intensity of feelings. All of your senses are heightened. You have rich appetites in all the ways of the senses. Is it true? I don't know.
Your sense of loyalty is very strong as well, making you very caring and deep. A betrayal or hurt of any kind stays with you a long time. Unfortunately I know this is true.
Your strength can be a great attraction but it can also intimidate people. I like to think I've worked on this one.
Do you have a good singing voice? It looks to me like the writing of a very musical person. With your love of richness you could create much beauty in your lifetime. Wow. Thanks guy. I would like to believe that. I guess the keyword is COULD.
You will always carry pieces of the past with you. Souvenirs and reminders of your childhood will always be with you. Wow, I posted a picture of my treasures for the treasures WWC.
Then he wrote some other crap. Interesting isn't it? Don't you want your handwriting analyzed now? That process amazes me quite a bit. Obviously you could look at anybodies handwriting and make a few snap judgments that would be fairly accurate. If it's tiny and a mess they are probably shy or withdrawn and untidy. If they write hearts to dot their eyes they are probably a teen girl. Or wish they were a teen girl. I was surprised he came up with three typed pages of response. I wonder how much he was paid. I have a small handwriting analysis book. Anyone want to submit a sample to me?
Yeah I didn't think you would.
