As you are gathering love letters from your admirers this Valentine’s Day, wouldn’t it be nice to know if that special sweetie is Mr. or Ms. Right? While it’s not scientific, Graphology—also called handwriting analysis—can provide useful clues about your admirer’s personality.
Ideally, handwriting analysis should be performed on an unlined page of original writing. When studying a sample, the first characteristic a graphologist considers is the writer’s use of space.
Take the margins for example. The right symbolizes the future and the left represents the past—even in cultures whose writing moves from right to left. In graphology, leaving a narrow right margin suggests a risk-taking person who is unafraid of the future, whereas leaving a narrow left margin implies someone very tied to the past, even fearful of moving on.
The space between lines represents the distance the writer places between himself—or herself—and others. Thus, people who leave relatively little space between words require others’ company while those who leave more space may be hard to get close to. People who leave little space between lines need to get involved: they tend to be big “joiners,” and may get bogged down in the details of a situation. By contrast, writers who leave more space between lines are usually independent and better at grasping the “big picture.”
While these are generally accepted concepts of graphology, no single characteristic in writing is significant by itself. You have to look at handwriting in context.
