When male celebrities make declarations of love, they often leave little doubt as to their true feelings. This was never more apparent than when Tom Cruise excitedly leapt up and down on Oprah’s famous yellow couch. The star enthusiastically declared his devotion to Katie Holmes before a global audience in 2005. More recently, Chris Pratt took to Instagram to gush over his new bride, Katherine Schwarzenegger. The Actor described their June wedding as, “the best day of our lives.”
Unfortunately, not all men are quite so transparent and demonstrative. Consequently, when it comes to their beau, many women are left wondering; what lies beneath his enigmatic exterior? All is not lost however. If your significant other seems to be a closed book, scrutinising his handwriting, could help you, to read him.
Barbara Weaver, Principal of the Cambridge School of Graphology, is a qualified graphologist and a certified document examiner. Barbara contends that our writing symbolises who we are and that as we write, we leave an imprint of our personality on the page. Barbara Weaver explains what can be deduced about a man by considering 5 key distinguishing aspects of his handwriting.
“Well it all depends what we are looking at. There are 3 zones in handwriting – upper zone, lower zone and mid zone. When looked at as a totality, we can see the absolute size of writing.
If the size of mid zone mode is small – smaller than 2.5mm, then he can concentrate for considerable time without losing focus. He is likely to be an academic or someone who spends a lot of time concentrating on the job in hand. Einstein had a very small mid zone for instance.
If the size of the mid zone mode is large – larger than 4mm, then writer can’t sit still for very long – he needs to be finding out what’s going on. He needs a lot of elbow room and a lot of attention. He has a big Ego. He can see the bigger picture but is not very good with detail.
If the upper zone is very tall, then writer enjoys exploring abstract concepts – politics, literature, religion etc. The upper zone is related to the Superego. If it is very short, the writer doesn’t have much of a conscience – he may do things that might hurt a relationship and doesn’t give a damn. However, there are lots of things to look at in the upper zone and it depends on which letters we are looking at.
If the lower zone is very long, then this suggests the writer had a great deal of determination – again we need to see whether there are loops in the lower zone descenders and how they are made. Lower zone descenders are related to the Id, the pleasure principle, so we can also see how much sex or physical activity the writer needs, how much variety in pleasure pursuits he desires. Sometimes we can see problems associated with sexuality or whether the writer is just not interested in sex.”
“If the spacing between words is narrow, then the writer wants to get involved with others (depending on what else is in the writing of course). If the word spacing is wide, then he probably enjoys his own company and the solitude that it provides. He will be good at working on his own.”
“Slant is measured because it tells us a great deal about the writer’s emotional response and where he falls in the introversion/extroversion spectrum. Some people have a strong leftward, or a strong upright or a strong rightward slant. They behave consistently in response to situations. If the writer has a variable slant, then he is likely to be very unpredictable and moody.”
“A signature is the public face we present to the world – it doesn’t always represent the true personality of the writer. Each signature is different so it would depend on how the signature is written. If the signature is illegible then it would mean the writer is inconsiderate whether a man or a woman. If the signature contains both names and it is congruent with the text then the writer is comfortable with himself. Depending on the signature it could reveal that the writer is wearing a mask and has a persona.
A signature alone would not give us much information as to the longevity or loyalty of the writer – the text would be the true self of the writer and we wouldn’t ever go on the signature alone. As I said, it tends to reveal the public face and public and private faces don’t always gel. A signature alone wouldn’t give us much idea about the true personality of the writer unless it was accompanied with the text.”
“Again, it all depends what else is in the writing. However, the highest happiness scores are likely to be found when both partners have the same pressure in their writing. Lots of misunderstandings are caused by differences not only in their depth of emotional feeling but also in the intensity of their individual sex drives. It is important to consider the length of time that each partner in a relationship feels or remembers past events.
The combination of a heavy pressure writer with a light pressure writer is likely to create incompatibility overall. The heavy pressured writer will remember emotions for a very long time whereas the light pressure writer will quickly forget. It is likely that they both will have widely different energy levels which will affect their relationship both socially and sexually.”
Barbara offers a note of caution though; “I would advise you that handwriting is only relevant to the time of writing – it reveals how the writer was feeling at that particular time and it reveals desires rather than actual behaviour. We do not remain static as our personality evolves over time according to life experiences and so on. However, handwriting is a good indicator of loyalty, steadfastness, honesty and reliability. It would also indicate whether sex is important to the writer and this may account for a desire for variety and the potential for unfaithfulness.”
Key aspects of a man’s character are clearly revealed in the size, spacing, slant and pressure of his penmanship, along with his signature. Taking all these factors into consideration, the clues which can be deduced from handwriting analysis can undoubtedly act as a valuable compass- in the search- for Mr. Write.
