Tell the gender of the writer Tell if the writer is left handed or right handed most are surprised at this Tell the age of the writer Everything else is open to interpretation. With the right letters and enough writing, I can tell everything from your social aptitude, intelligence level, sexual satisfaction, and often which ankle has an injury.
What part of the handwriting does one look at when determining the issues of the writer, as I did for the man at the dinner party?
There are 6 different slants and each slant is measured from the base of the line up to the point at the top of the letter. Each slant has its own meaning.
Are you an introvert, an extrovert or somewhere in-between? Just the slant can tell if a person would make a wonderful actor, if they prefer reading books to attending parties, or if they are the expressive partner in a relationship or one who keeps his or her feelings inside.
The slant tells how we emotionally express ourselves. If one word has multiple slants in it, and that happens very frequently in the handwriting as a whole, this person is, at the very least, extremely moody.
This information is a little more complex and is covered in more advanced studies of handwriting analysis, but, I'll give you a brief overview.
For example, in this card I got from a friend many years ago, look at the circled words. The word "room" has basically left off the letter "m," leaving only a squiggly line. The word "me," which is circled, has the 2nd half of the hump of the "m" cut short and goes right into the letter "e" without finishing the letter "m"; and on the word "Hope" Notice in the signature, "Betsy," the letter "e" is non-distinguishable and the letter "y" is only half formed.
And in case you didn't know it already, anything showing up in the signature of a person, carries 5 times the weight of importance of the rest of the body of the handwriting.
Betsy, as it turns out, had a serious eating disorder. Never have I ever known handwriting to lie. We may choose to look in another direction, but handwriting always tells the truth. In advanced classes of graphology, the student learns to "layer" other traits which support original findings.
For example, in the word, "room" the o's have been looped around more than once, indicating this person has gone "round and round" on an issue; and, the word ends up with the "m" not only indicating trauma, but also turning into a caution stroke.
Caution strokes are ending strokes that are a straight line, usually at the end of the word, not as the last letter of the word. Take, for example, the word "love. If you are dating someone and they sign their name love "so and so," and they make an ending stroke like this, you have my personal guarantee, this person is extremely cautious when it comes to love.
Which brings up another point; paying close attention to which word a particular trait shows up in, can also give a lot of information about that person. Another indication of possible trauma is when a person's handwriting is very shaky, almost as if they were writing while an earthquake tremor was happening.
It is parallel to the feeling that an emotional earthquake hit their life. Notice in this example it not only has the shaky writing, but notice the word "traumatic. For the advanced studier of handwriting analysis, you will begin to "layer" the traits for deeper conclusions. As mentioned, the indications for trauma are slightly more complex to discern; but with advanced study and a trained eye, the writing is on the wall.
Once you master this science, you will also see deep dark secrets that others try to hide. I noticed he had very profound i's and i dots. His i dots were placed perfectly, directly and very close to the top of the letter i.
