Trust and Handwriting Analysis

One of the things most often asked about handwriting analysis is how to tell if someone is trustworthy. Honesty is the most obvious component of trust, but there are several others.

Honesty involves having no loops or hooks in the circle letters, a, o, or the circle parts of d and g.

But it is also necessary to take into account whether or not the writer is so implusive as to act without thinking, and, perhaps, regret it later. Strong emotional impulsive behavior is indicated by a very far right slant. The writer gets caught up in the moment and doesnt’ think about what s/he is doing till afterwards.

Someone who rushes through life not really thinking things through, regardless of the slant of their writing, can often do things that make others wonder about them. It is another form of thoughtlessness, and can be identified by writing that has no real form, just a unformed scrawl. (Note: those who write their signatures many times a day may develop this type of signature for speed: their regular writing had to be seen to identify the trait of not thinking things through.)

A widely varied slant within the same line or paragraph of writing indicates emotions that are all over the place. Again, it can result in behavior that is not stable or reliable.

I-dot in your signature

If you have an i dot in your signature, give some thought to what it will say about you. Remember that all the usual rules of handwriting analysis apply, but they are magnified and personalized by being in your signature. Of course, i-dots only appear in lower case i, so if you have a capital I in your name, the guidelines below do not apply to that.

– a drawn or “creative” i-dot suggests that you need to stand out as being different. This is a very common stroke to find the writing of teenage girls.

– a jabbed, short, straight line for an i dot is someone who is feeling rather restless or even irritated, or perhaps just in always in a hurry.

– no i-dot, where there is a lower case i is someone who does not pay due attention to detail.

– an i-dot which then continues as the lead in stroke for the next letter, shows intelligence and creativity.

– an i dot meticullously close to the top of the lower case i is a writer who takes meticulous care of the smaller details. Good for accountants, engineers etc, but can be a problem in more people centered work.

And lastly, a lower case i, with or without a dot, used in place of a capital I (at the beginning of a name, or as a middle initial) shows either genuine underestimation of self, or trying to project an image of extreme modesty. The rest of the writing will show which it is. It is most likely to be an image the writer is trying to give.

So although the i-dot is small and often unobtrusive, it carries true meaning as to the character of the writer. So if you have an i-dot in your signature, give some thought as to how you want to be seen.
