You all may be wondering! What is up with all these written “Sally sold sea shells down by the sea shore” samples? Well I am using my family’s handwriting as my archive for my final project. Although I am no graphologist and am not specially trained I am going to go online do a little research and do a rough analysis of some of their handwritings. I asked in a group message and got some pretty funny responses. My brother-in-law said, “MK this sounds like scam. Are you planning to forge a bunch of promissory notes” my brother said his girlfriends handwriting “is the handwriting of serial killer.” In response to those: no, my brother’s girlfriend is not a serial killer (at least to my knowledge) and no I am not using their hand writing to forge promissory notes. I also had one of my brothers trying to cheat i.e. figure 2 you may notice was from a computer.
So here goes my analysis as a graphologist. I am going to look at several different things in the persons’ handwriting including size, slant, baseline, and spacing. I am going to pull descriptions of what graphologists look for in people’s handwriting to give you an idea of what each says.
Size: The size of the writing indicates the writer’s desire to be noticed.
Slant: The Slant of writing indicates the writer’s emotional interactions.
Baseline: An important factor in judging the writer’s emotional stability and disposition is the baseline of the writing. The baseline is the actual line upon which letters are written
Spacing: spacing – Space between words indicates social attitude to others. Close words are a sign of sociability.
I also will look at some other random things too!
I am going to do 1 analysis for right now. I am going to look at figure 3 first.
For size: It looks to be large. This says that a person likes being noticed, stands out in a crowd. Broad perspective makes an impression, bold, ego driven, action oriented.
Slant: I was unsure to do strong right or right. After looking at some samples I decided to go with right. Right slant means sociable, responsive, interested in others. Good coping ability, extroverted, outgoing, friendly, future directed.
Baseline: I would say it was normal straight. This means they are determined stays on track. This person is self-motivated, reliable, mind controls emotion, steady, unflinching.
Spacing: I would say there was significant space between the words. This says that the person likes their own space.
I am going to look at some loops of the writing. It says a longer lower loop says a person likes their physical space which matches with the spacing.
Next I am going to look at the speed. This looks like a fast writing based on the samples. A fast writer is said to be alert, perceptive, flexible, mature, and rapid thinker.
This is my Dad’s handwriting. A lot of the things matched up with his personality which is very interesting because it was as I said a very rough analysis.
