Our handwriting can say a lot about our personality. Experts analyze handwriting then explain our personality. The process of handwriting analysis is called graphology, it sometimes been addressed as pseudoscientific due to debates regarding accuracy in determining physical and psychological attributes.
Graphology is used by many companies for hiring employees and often used in court trials. Here are some clues about what your handwriting says about your personality:
1. Size of letters
Those who write small and make sentences with tiny letters often have great focusing power and concentration. It can also signify high emotional intelligence and intense feelings. This type of writing tells us you are shy and studious and usually perform well at studies.
Those who write large letters are often outgoing, outspoken, and love attention. This shows high confidence in the writer and high leadership abilities. Average size writing says the writer is well-adjusted and adaptable.
The amount of space you leave between words can say a lot about you. Those who leave too much space between words enjoy freedom. They don’t like to be crowded and overwhelmed. They love their space and live life on their own terms.
Those who leave narrow spaces between words like to be surrounded by a crowd and often don’t like to be alone. Such people can be intrusive.
3. Loops of ‘E’ and ‘L’
The National Pen Company conducted research on graphology, if you make narrow loops in lowercase L it shows you restrict yourself and are easily tense. Wide loops show a spontaneous nature and relaxed attitude, it also means you are open-minded.
Those who make narrow E loops are more likely to be skeptical of others and tend not to be swayed by emotions of other people. Wide loops are signs of outgoing behavior and desire to experience new things.
4. Crossing the ‘T’
The way we cross our T’s when writing can say a lot about us. For example if you cross your T from the top it shows that you have high self-esteem and are optimistic and ambitious. If you cross from the middle this shows confident nature and that you feel comfortable in your own skin.
Long crosses show you are determined and enthusiastic. This also shows a stubborn nature that takes time letting things go. Short crosses can indicate laziness and lack of determination.
5. Nature of writing
Writers who write round cursive letters are more creative and artistic. Those who make pointed letters are more likely to be aggressive and intelligent. When letters are connected to each other it shows the writer is logical.

6. Speed and pressure
If you use heavy pressure while writing it shows you are good with commitments, excessive pressure shows you are quick at making decisions. Light pressure in writing shows sensitivity of the writer and empathy.
If you write with great speed it signifies impatience and not liking to waste time. Slower writing shows organization, practical, and self reliance.
