As a handwriting analyst, I’ve seen that about 90 per cent of people I meet want their handwriting analysed. The remaining don’t. Graphologists say only two kinds of people don’t want their handwriting under the scanner: one is illiterate and the other has something to hide. However, I believe there’s a third category: the person is your boss (I don’t wanna lose my job, you see).
The tendency to hide one’s real motives is seen both in personal and public life, which is reflected by various strokes in handwriting. Today we’ll only talk about people who wish to remain a mystery in public.
A person who guards his inner feelings in public always maintains a certain degree of illegibility in signature (pic A).
Incidentally, signature shows how people behave in public and how they want others to perceive them. For instance, a girl with an illegible signature won’t possess a transparent nature and her activities — good or bad — can remain unknown for a long period.
I’ve a friend with this trait and his signature has some illegibility. I’ve known this gentleman for about three years, but he never discusses what is happening in his life with me. Nevertheless, he is a nice and harmless chap.
Likewise, people who sign their names with certain illegibility have a propensity to withhold facts and restrain inner feelings. That’s not to say they’re necessarily being dishonest by concealing them. Such signatures can only tell you that they want to hide. What they want to mask (maybe insecurities, traumatic experiences, social deviancy or sexual perversion) is known from their handwriting, and not just signature alone.
In short, illegible signature reflects on an inclination to remain mysterious, impenetrable and enigmatic, but the reason behind the tendency can be both malicious and benevolent. One must check all aspects of handwriting before arriving at conclusions.
This week I’m analysing the handwriting sample (pic B) of Mirror reader who wants to be referred to as Mrs Gracy who divorced her husband of 10 years and now lives with her daughter. Her handwriting indicates she’s unhappy and sometimes self destructive thoughts also cross her mind. Gracy, you must seek support from some close people and banish all thoughts to take any drastic step because of your present situation. As you haven’t sent me the handwriting sample of your ex-husband, I’m unable to tell you what caused the friction between the two of you and how you could have tackled that. But your handwriting shows it’s very easy to tick you off and turn you into a verbal cannon. Also, you give a damn about what others think of you. At present, you’re utterly confused about what you should do.
POP A PEN KILLER
Write “I get my solution with clarity and lucidity” (pic C) on every alternate line on ruled paper for 15 minutes daily. Make sure your t-bars, which are currently ahead of the stem, are crossed on the stem. Besides, change the way you write d’s (pic D). Don’t draw the letter’s stem first; start with the oval, then go up to draw the stem and then retrace the stroke down (pic E). The exercise will enable you to have a clear idea of what you should do next and it will also help you become a better mother. All the best!
