Have you ever felt compelled to buy a book just because you liked its cover?
If you did, it sort of indicates you are more likely to take things at face value without concerning yourself with quality.
According to signature analysis, the signature of a person is just like the cover of a book. It projects how the writer wants the world to see him, which, by the way, may not be his true personality. In other words, the real personality of the writer may be completely different from what is outwardly projected.
As I have said many times before, a signature seen in isolation may highlight some attributes of the writer which may not be part of his real character. Therefore, always insist on a handwriting sample along with the signature.
Mouse vs Lion
Let’s first find out what I mean by mouse and lion.
I am using mouse as a metaphor to paint the picture of a person who is subdued, quiet, unpretentious, self-effacing, and understated. In handwriting analysis, these traits are broadly reflected when the writing size is small and the handwriting pressure is low.
On the other hand, I am using the term lion for a person who is loud, bold, overbearing, authoritarian, presumptuous, and energetic. In handwriting, these personality traits are generally shown by large handwriting written with heavy pressure.
When text and signature look pretty much the same (see pic below) as far as writing style, size, spacing, pressure, and letter formations are concerned, the writer shows a healthy integration between his public and private personalities. In short, his behaviour in his private and public lives is the same. There are absolutely no pretensions whatsoever.
The problem comes when there is a massive difference between the signature and the text, which indicates that the writer is presenting himself socially in a way that is not a true representation of himself.
Mouse pretending as a lion
There are many handwriting indicators, which show that the writer is trying to project a more aggressive image of himself in his public life.
For example, a signature written with heavier pressure shows an individual who is more spirited and dashing than he really is. In an otherwise negative handwriting, this person could become highly overbearing and imperious.
Likewise, when the signature is much larger than the text, the writer’s body language and mannerisms shows he is trying to appear more important than he inwardly feels. He is loud and he tries to impress people with his haughty and bold attitude. A typical case of a mouse at home pretending to be a lion outside.
