What Does Your Handwriting Say About Your Personality?

“Just from analyzing your handwriting, experts can find over 5,000 personality traits,” an expert said.

A A A

Analyzing one’s handwriting isn’t some new-age hippy fad, as some may think. In fact, graphology, the study of handwriting, has been around for a millennia!

Today, it’s used for numerous purposes, from criminal investigations (such as the handwriting matches you may have seen on CSI), understanding one’s health (as in learning the progression of Alzheimer’s disease), and for matching the compatibility of a job applicant.

While graphology requires training, there are a few little telltale signs that you can glean easily from one’s handwriting based on the writing’s size, slant, and the way each letter is constructed.

According to graphologist Kathi McKnight:

“Just from analyzing your handwriting, experts can find over 5,000 personality traits.”

Below are some of her basic tips for analyzing handwriting. Remember, these might not apply to everyone, as they are not absolute. After all, some of us have been trained to write a certain way, and have gotten used to it over the years. Still, graphology is a fun way to learn more about yourself and others through writing.

To get the best set of samples, use the sentence, “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog,” as this contains all the letters of the alphabet.

A Peek into the Bedrooms of Millennials from All Over the World

John Thackwray takes photos of millennials in their rooms to show how they’re all vastly different.

When you think of millennials, what do you picture? Do you imagine someone in their 20's browsing through Facebook on their iPhone while sipping a spiced latte at Starbucks?

That image might be right in some parts of the globe, and in a way, it perpetuates the stereotype of millennials being entitled and lazy. But when you think about it, millennials get lumped into the same category, when all they really have in common is their age.
