Since handwriting originates in the brain, it’s an accurate way to gauge personality traits.

When a police detective or FBI agent creates a psychological profile for a criminal, they often employ a reliable technique: handwriting analysis.

Handwriting provides psychological insight because it actually comes from your brain, not your hand.

If your hands were damaged in an accident, you could learn to write with your toes or mouth – and you’d end up with handwriting similar to what you had before. However, if you injured your brain, your handwriting could be altered or greatly diminished.

Since your brain determines all the characteristics of your handwriting, including the size, shape and slant, these details in turn reflect different characteristics of your personality.

Let’s start with the slant, which tells us how upbeat a person is.

Recognizing the slant in someone’s handwriting is a lot like reading their body language. If their shoulders and head are slouched down, you’d recognize this as a sign of moroseness or even depression.

Conversely, if they have a bouncy strut, with their head held high, you could tell that the person is cheerful and upbeat.

It’s the same with handwriting: an upward slant, with an uphill angle, suggests cheerful spirits; while a downward slant, at a downhill angle, suggests sad and morose feelings.

So let’s compare the handwriting of two famous artists, Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso.

Van Gogh struggled throughout his life, selling only a single painting before committing suicide, and his downward slanting handwriting reflects this. Picasso, on the other hand, was a wealthy and prolific artist who enjoyed a long life, and his handwriting slants happily upward with towering letters.

Now, let’s move on to curves or sharp angles, which tell us how nurturing we are.

For this we’ll compare the handwriting of Mother Teresa and Adolf Hitler.

Saint Teresa’s writing has many curves, with very round letters that reveal her gentle and caring personality and correspond with her life of charity.

Hitler’s handwriting, in contrast, has no curves at all. His letters are full of sharp angles that reveal an angry, determined, competitive and fearful personality that corresponds with his hostile intentions.
