You’d be surprised to see what your handwriting says about you. Did you know big, outgoing personalities tend to write in large letters, and shy, introverted types prefer to write small? If you have average-sized writing, it demonstrates a strong ability to focus and concentrate. These are hidden strengths of being an introvert.

How much do you space your words?

If you dot your “i’s” high on the page you likely have an active imagination. A closely dotted “i” is the mark of an organized and detail-oriented mind. If you dot your “i’s” to the left, you might be a procrastinator. And if you dot your “i’s” with a circle, you likely have playful and childlike qualities. This is how doodling makes you smarter.

How legible is your signature?

Did you know you can tell what your handwriting says about you by the direction of its slant? A right slant means you like to meet and work with new people, while a left slant means you prefer to keep to yourself. Left slanters also tend to be reserved and introspective.

How do you cross your “t’s”?

Your “t’s” have a lot to do with what your handwriting says about you. If you cap off your “t’s” with a long cross, you’re likely determined and enthusiastic, possibly with stubborn tendencies. If you use a short cross, however, it could be because you’re lazy. If you cross you lowercase “t’s” up high, you likely have many goals and aim high. If you cross them low, it could mean it’s time to raise the bar for yourself; low crossers tend to aim low as well.

How do you loop your lowercase “l”?

A widely looped “l” suggests you’re relaxed and spontaneous, while a narrow or retraced “l” means you might be restricting yourself. (Here are some healthy ways to loosen up and relax.)

What do your “y” hooks look like?

The hook on your lowercase “y” is a huge indicator of personality. A broad loop means you’ve got a large circle of friends, while a slender loop suggests you’re more selective with whom you allow close to you. A short hook means you’re a homebody, while a long hook could be a signal of wanderlust.

It might not be something you think about too often, but according to The Pen Warehouse, the way you write your o’s might say more about your personality than you think. If your o’s are usually closed, you probably tend to keep to yourself and are more introverted. If your o’s are usually open, there’s a good chance you’re more social and extroverted. Regardless of whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, there are plenty of strengths of both.

How do you write your e’s?

Are your e’s narrow or large? According to The Pen Warehouse, if they’re usually narrow you’re probably sceptical and uninfluenced by emotions. If you find that your e’s are usually large, you might be more open-minded and willing to try new things.


So the next time you wonder…
