National Handwriting Day!

 

 

Celebrate today by finding out what your handwriting says about you!

Upon discovering that today is National Handwriting Day, I became curious as to what exactly experts say handwriting indicates about a person. In my research, I found that the study and analysis of handwriting is actually referred to as “graphology” and that the way in which a person constructs letters can indicate thousands of different characteristics and personality traits. Real Simple has some great examples of different indicators and how to look for them in your own writing. We’ve included one below to get you started!

Everyone is first asked to write the sentence “She sells seashells by the seashore” in cursive and then proceed from there. The first thing observed is the slant of your penmanship. Kathi McKnight, a graphologist and contributing writer asserts in the article that if your handwriting slants:

Which way does your handwriting slant?


Right:
You are open to the world around you and like to socialize with other people.


Left:
You generally like to work alone or behind the scenes. If you are right-handed and your handwriting slants to the left, you may be expressing rebellion.

Doesn’t slant:
You tend to be logical and practical. You are guarded with your emotions.Try it out for yourself and see what you uncover! Find the full article by Amanda Armstrong here and learn about other indicators of different personality traits. Enjoy National Handwriting Day!
