What does Handwriting Analysis DO?

So it’s all very interesting to say I am a Handwriting Analyst, but what does Handwriting Analysis DO?

how_can_this_be_a_jobThere are two main ways of using handwriting analysis.

  1. To identify personality traits (Personality) and put together a complete picture of the person
  2. To identify if two or more writing samples were written by the same person (Forgery Analysis)

Ending your Signature with a Period

Ending your signature with a periodEnding your Signature with a Period.

“Why do I end my signature with a period?” I am often asked.

The answer, short and simple, is that you wish to indicate it is ended – you have said what you have said and that is it!

End of conversation.

So since the topic is brief, so is this post.

I have said what I have said, and that is that.

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.

Signature Analysis: It only happens in my signature!

Any stroke that only happens in your signature has special significance.

Your signature is very personal, so a stroke that happens only there applies to you on a very personal level.

If it is in your first name, it’s you, the individual.

If it is in your last name, it applies to your family (whether biological family or created family)

So take a good look at your signature compared to the rest of your writing to notice any unique strokes in the signature, then read up on your handwriting analysis to work out what these strokes mean.

Understand others better by seeing their signature

It’s amazing how quickly you can get to know about another person just by looking at their signature. It can be extrememly helpful. It can be very enlightening. And it can be fun!

For that reason I’ve just published my “Signature Analysis Workbook” in soft cover. Up until now it has only been available in E-book form, but I’ve given in to requests of potential readers, and have just released the soft cover edition.

It covers everything you can think of that can be found in a signature.

Signature Analysis: Gaps between Names

Most people sign more than one name. It may be as simple as one initial and name, or it may be 3 or 4 names written out in full.

Look carefully at the spacing between the names. If there is just one name and an initial, or two names, then you only have that one space to go with, and the comparison can only be made between the spacing in the signature and the spacing in the rest of the writing. However, that is better than nothing.

Better though, is when there are more than 2 names. 2 initials and a last name, 2 names and an initial, 3 names, or more. All of these give more than one space between name or intial.

Is the spacing consistent between all? Or is there a larger gap between one than others?

A larger space means distancing oneself. So if, let’s say someone writes their first name, their middle initial, and then their last name with a larger space between the middli initial and the last name than there is between the first name and the initial. What does this tell us?

The first name, and the middle initial is the individual person. The exception here is if the middle name is that of a close relative after whom the person has been named. In that case, the middle name may be taken as representing that relative..
The last name is always the family name and as such represents family in general.

So if the last name is isolated by a wider than usual space from the rest of the name, the writer is distancing themself from family. If the larger gap is between the first name and the middle name or initial (especially if this is named after a close family member) then the first name (ie the writer themself) is distancing themself from the family in general and also specifically from the person who’s middle name they were given.

It can be a sign of trouble in a marriage when a larger than previous gap starts to appear regularly before the last name, whether in a man or woman’s signature.

Spacing is something that’s easy to overlook, but can give very important information.
