Your handwriting may reveal more than you think about your personality

Your handwriting and signature reveals much more than you might imagine.

There’s a whole science behind analysing handwriting for personality traits called graphology, which has been around since the days of Aristotle.

Today, it’s used for a variety of purposes, from criminal investigations to understanding your health.

Some employers even use handwriting analysis to screen potential employees for compatibility.

“Just from analysing your handwriting, experts can find over 5,000 personality traits,” graphologist Kathi McKnight says.

McKnight readily admits that the information she provides below is a basic overview, so it won’t apply to everyone in every situation. Yet these factors may be able to show you aspects about yourself that you may not have considered before.

Try writing out a sentence. We suggest: “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” Then, keep reading to see what your handwriting says about you.
