I am sure you know plenty of people who have very small handwriting. Maybe you are also one of them. If you are interested in knowing what small handwriting means and what it says about the writer, read on.

1. Sign of introversion

The size of middle zone letters, such as a, o, e, m, n, u and v, is  a key component while analysing handwriting samples. It suggests how much the writer needs other people in his life, and how many people he can accommodate in his personal life. People with small handwriting are very focused individuals. They are able to shut out the world and can concentrate very well. Small handwriting often belongs to people who are introverts who like to live in themselves and rarely want to look beyond.

Small handwriting means the writer is extremely focused, and can concentrate well2. Ability to concentrate

Usually, scholars, researchers and great thinkers have small handwriting. For example, take the handwriting samples of Albert Einstein and Sir Issac Newton. Like most creative thinkers, the two have small handwriting. Now, you may ask why. Have you ever tried writing very small? If no, give it shot. Try writing very very small. You will know it’s not easy to write that way unless it is your normal style, and you will have to be extremely focused. Scholars usually need to shut out the world and direct their complete attention on their work. They do not allow their minds to wander. This need to concentrate and stay focused is reflected by small handwriting. Hence, someone who has a small handwriting has a good ability to concentrate.

3. A reserved personality

People who write small are usually not flamboyant or attention-seekers. They are like quiet mice nibbling at their cheese in a corner. They feel discomfort when you shower on them a great deal of attention. In short, very reserved.

4. Pressure handler

Small writers are able to handle pressure pretty well. They work with amazing efficiency when it comes to paying attention to small details. Such writers understand their social limitations and they usually desist from making incursions into others’ personal space. Also, they are quite guarded in their reactions.

5. Very small handwriting

People with extremely small handwriting are shy and have some self-esteem issues. They do not value themselves high. Such writers totally avoid the company of others, primarily because they fear that people will know their own lack of faith in themselves. They are very insecure, and if they are forced to become social they behave quite abnormally.

    Hi Vishwas,

    My brother is a senior crime reporter and his handwriting is small, but his personality is unlike what you have mentioned in the article. He’s not introvert or shy or has any self esteem issues. What can be the other letters which does not make him a reserved character? Also, he has been consistent with his handwriting as I have hardly seen any changes in size or shape.

      I think your brother have very small word space and garland connection, so he connects all the letters in a word which gives him the ability to link with people.

    I guess my hand writing is small/middle? It’s big enough to read yet not big to the point where I can only fit 3 words per row on a lined piece of paper (as some kids..girls..in my class do.) I think some do it this big not as a way to show how extrovert they are; but have the big hand writing as a short cut. As in they would need less to write about to meet any required amount of pages as compared to someone who writes a middle sized font.
