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.

Sign your name with confidence

Just as people can tell if you are confident by meeting you, they can also tell if you are confident from looking at your signature. Often without any handwriting analysis training, too!

But the nice thing about confidence is that it is one of the “fake it till you make it” traits. You can make yourself feel and look, and write, with confidence at least over the short span, even if you don’t feel very confident most of the time.

Let’s say you are going to put your signature to an important document and you want to show confidence. It could be the cover letter as you apply for that all important job.

Get the letter all typed, printed out and ready for your signature.

Now sit back, relax, close you eyes, and think confidence. Tell yourself how confident you are. Visual the results of you being confident, of your confidence being rewarded (in this scenario it would be getting the job). Keep visualizing and thinking confidence, and when you feel you have achieved it, open your eyes and write your name, without taking time to allow your doubts to return. Write your name thinking how proud you are to be you, to be the possessor of all the great traits and abilities that you have.

This should make your signature more confident in general.

One of the ways confidence shows in a signature is when it is slightly larger than the rest of the writing – but not too big, that would indicate arrogance.

So sign with confidence. And then having seen what difference there is in your confident signature over previous versions, keep doing the confident one from now on. Soon it will be part of you.
