Horoscopes, personality types, tarot. There are numerous ways that people seek to understand themselves better. But did you know that even your handwriting can indicate your character? The study of handwriting is known as graphology, and the British Institute of Graphologists says that the study can help people assess everyday problems and does not discriminate.

So, what does graphology say about you? Read on to find out!



People whose writing style is rounded tend to be more creative, according to many graphologists. Rounded handwriting indicates expression, emotional intelligence and creativity.


If your writing is angular, pointed or slanted then it means you may have a dominant personality and a strong analytical ability.



‘T’s crossed in the middle of the line indicate someone who is confident and comfortable. When crossed at the top of the line, you are ambitious and optimistic. 


Are your ‘I’s meticulously dotted? This may mean that you are a perfectionist and value details. Dots leaning to the left of an ‘I’ suggest that you may be a procrastinator, and dots high above the line mean you are as imaginative as they come.


Open ‘O’s signify to graphologists that the writer is sociable and talkative, whereas closed ‘O’s indicate the opposite. 



Those with small handwriting are likely to be introverted, and shy away from crowds and the spotlight.


If your handwriting is just what teacher taught you, and is a neat, medium size, you’re probably a stable and adaptable person to be around.


If your handwriting reaches from top to bottom of the lines, then the likelihood is that you are an extrovert and enjoy receiving attention.


Wide Spacing

Somewhat unsurprisingly, wide spaced handwriting may suggest that you are feeling distant, and may potentially have trouble connecting to others.

Tight Spacing

Tight spaces between your writing indicate pressure. Increased pressure may compress handwriting, leading to the tight spaces between words.

And there you have it. What does your handwriting say about you? Why not use these graphology basics to see how your handwriting changes over time, and if it reflects your mood at the time of writing?
