Handwriting slant tells why some people appear cold, emotionless

Getting misunderstood is as common as receiving unsolicited marketing calls. All of us are misunderstood once in a while. But there are certain types of people who get misinterpreted more often than not — interestingly, because of their silence.

Handwriting analysis says people who often get misunderstood are usually the left-slant writers. They hold back their emotions and react too little or too late unless provoked or pushed to the corner. They are emotionally suppressed. And, by the time they decide to express themselves, the damage is already done.

Left slant in handwriting is not very common. Hence, it needs to be understood why some people’s handwriting tilts to the left, which shows that they are emotionally withdrawn.

Left slanted handwriting

Usually, the seeds of such personality traits, such as the tendency to remain emotionally distant, are sown in the childhood. Graphology says the left slant handwriting indicates that the child’s parents (or parent) were strict with him. The child developed a cold attitude because every time he expressed before his parents, they snapped at him. The child then became afraid of expressing in order to avoid the pain he experienced. This is the attitude he carries forward into the future.

Parental abuse

In other words, left-slant writers are generally insecure and lack spontaneity in their reactions to various situations. Such people in general grow up to become difficult to approach. People who write this way tend to be choosy in selecting friends and have limited friends. But they just love it when they find someone who “understands” them without them having to express in so many words.

If you have a spouse who writes like this, he/she may love you, but may not say so or express in the “standard” ways. The antidote to this is being extremely patient and to encourage such writers to come out of the shell.

If you see this kind of writing, remember that you may be required to become more patient if you wish to be anywhere close to the writer.

    My handwriting has a tendency to slant leftward, but I am definitely not an introvert. I love to make new friends and talk to people. I also tend to be spontaneous. Not sure I fit this description.

      Hello Noelle,

      It is difficult to say anything without looking at the handwriting sample.

    Been reading these left-slanter things a bit tonight. It bears a resemblance to extroverts trying to describe introverts (always some insecure, shy, brooding sort). Perhaps if right-slanters would stop projecting their own vanity (which they confuse with emotion, yet don’t identify with their own enough to feel it unless someone else reflects back to them)* onto things, they’d understand left-slanters a little better rather than jump to conclusions of “insecure” or “afraid” or “difficult” (because your own emotions don’t bounce back to you in a direct way? Is there not some vanity in expecting that, and insecurity in needing that?). *meant tongue-in-cheek. No ill will to right-slanters. Much love, yo.

    I have a friend who writes with a backward slant and also uses separate letters. I wonder if the two are related? Bill

      They may be, Bill. But it could be said with certainty after seeing the handwriting sample.
