The Analysis of Handwriting (Graphology)
What does your writing reveal about you?
Handwriting analysis has been used since the 17th century and handwriting is like your fingerprint, no two people have the same style and there are no distinguishing characteristics to tell if the writer is male or female as handwriting is gender neutral, age also cannot be gauged by someone’s handwriting.
Handwriting analysis is used to detect the character of a person and is used by some companies as part of an interview and hiring process, in fact I read of one lady who became a graphologist after being turned down at a job interview, because of her handwriting. It is also used by the police force, especially as people can attempt to forge handwriting or a signature. A person’s character, as well as their mental health can be deciphered during a handwriting analysis. As you write you are placing your subconscious down on paper, your frame of mind, your health, your mental and psychological wellbeing, all show up in your handwriting, it is a window to your inner workings. No two writing styles are the same, each person has a style of writing that is peculiar to them and their personality type.
Before making any type of assessment you need more than one or two factors. Handwriting can reveal personality with great accuracy, it can reveal whether you are a clear thinker, or aggressive, whether you are a follower or a leader, an introvert or extrovert and so on.
Your handwriting moves along and it moves up and down. The middle zone is a, c, e, m, n, o, r, s, u, v, w, x, you first look for the height of the middle letters in relation to the height of the upper and the lower loops, you are looking at the relative size of the handwriting in comparison to the upper and lower loops.
The upper zone contains the upper part of all capitals and the lower case letters b, d, h, k, I, t, the lower case is included here.
The lower zone contains the lower parts of the following letters g, j, p, y, z.
One letter that falls into all three zones is the lower case f.
Your handwriting falls into three zones each revealing different parts of your personality and you are looking for the dominant zone when doing a handwriting analysis, or the largest zone as this will give a good indication of a personality type.
The zones are upper – The spirit, dreams, desires, eclectic or abstract thoughts or actions, ambitions.
The middle zone – Social, daily interactions, rituals or habits, emotions.
The lower zone – Finances, the growth of wealth, the unconscious mind, acquisitions, sexual behavior, instincts.
Upper zone analysis:
Large upper zone meaning – A generous spirit, flamboyant, imaginative, intelligence.
Extra-large upper zone meaning – This person will be a day-dreamer and could possibly live in a fantasy they have extreme spiritual, intellectual or extravagant leanings and they must try to learn balance. This can often be a sign of the fanatic, they often lack the needed discipline to successfully fulfill their desires and dreams.
Middle zone analysis;
Large middle zone meaning – This person lacks self-awareness and believes they are always right, they are the know-it-alls they have the gift of the gab, they believe totally in themselves even when they are wrong, there is an inability for them to overview themselves and critique their behavior, they are prone to exaggeration.
Ideal middle zone meaning – A middle zone that is the same height as the other two zones, depicts a well-balanced personality, someone who stays in harmony, usually they are calm, self-confident and in control.
Small middle zone meaning – This depicts a lack of drive, a person with this type of writing is having some self-worth issues although it also denotes a quiet achiever depending on other parts of their handwriting, they can have determination and pay attention to detail, they can also be quietly ambitious, this will only be revealed in a full handwriting analysis.
Lower zone analysis:
Dominant lower zone meaning – A dominant lower zone denotes someone who is full of life, sensual with an active libido and they always finish what they start, although it all depends on the rest of the analysis, which could reveal materialism and a pedantic personality.
Small lower zone meaning – With a small lower zone they lack drive and ambition there is a lack of sensuality and an inactive libido in some, this person needs to work on their self-confidence by finding something they are good at and believe in, otherwise they may make like difficult for themselves.
Overly long zone meaning – With an overly long lower zone shows a person possibly who has sexual fantasies although others parts of the analysis would have to be considered, at the very least they would be extremely sensual beings.
Right slant meaning- If the writing slants to the right the person would usually be an extrovert. This slant depicts a demonstrative person who has a certain ease around others, someone who is open with their thoughts and feelings, a balanced individual who has an empathic nature, (again remember to look at other aspects of the writing). Slant excessive meaning – The person with this type of slant is very likely an over the top personality, someone who loves attention they are also highly emotional and have a tendency to react first and ask questions later.

Left slant meaning – This type of writing is due to the person’s personality and is not something that has been taught and learned in a school environment, it is unusual and not adopted by many as the natural flow for most writers is to the right regardless of whether they are right or left handed.
