25 Awesome Things Your Handwriting Says About You

Posted by , Updated on May 29, 2018


Did you know your handwriting is a mirror into your personality? It might sound weird, but it’s a real thing that people study. Called Graphology, it’s the study of the human personality through writing. By looking at the small details, graphologists can determine what your handwriting says about you, like if you’re an introvert or an extrovert, whether you’re detail oriented, or if you’re a tense person. Of course, like most personality tests, not all graphologists agree with each other. And, honestly, some scientists believe graphology is a pseudoscience. So, while this can be a fun way to analyze your writing, it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt and not too seriously. Ready to put your handwriting to the test? Here are 25 Awesome Things Your Handwriting Says About You.

Large Letters

If you write in really big letters, you’re an extrovert and tend to be out-going, people-oriented, and attention-seeking. However, graphologists also believe this could mean you’re putting up a front and pretending to be confident.


Small Letters

Those who write small may frustrate people to no end because their writing is hard to read. Writing small means you’re focused and meticulous, but also shy. If your handwriting is teeny-tiny, then it could mean you’re retreating from society altogether.


Average Size Letters

Average size handwriting is measured from 2.5 to 3.5 millimeters. People who write with average sized letters are balanced and see themselves the way they are. You adjust to the environment and can be both introverted and extroverted.


Left Slant

If you’re writing slants to the left, then you’re reserved and like to keep to yourself. You like to work behind the scenes and not get too much attention. Right-handed people with left slanted handwriting might be showing signs of rebellion.


Right Slant

You might be out-going and have a keen interest in the future if you’re handwriting slants to the right. Generally, you’re open to new experiences and like meeting new people.
