What Does Your Handwriting Say About You?

Since I was a child, I have always had terrible handwriting. In elementary school, I made all A's and a C in handwriting. I was the only child who was exempt from exams but had not been on the honor roll. There was no exam for handwriting. Go figure!

At any rate, I love to give gifts and send cards, but often I have been hesitant to do so because of the quality of my handwriting. Since we homeschool, I purchased a copy of my daughter's handwriting book for myself (they have a level for adults) and decided that perhaps there is some hope for me. :)

In searching for websites that would offer any advice on how to improve handwriting, I came across a handwriting analysis site. I wrote the sample they offer, answered a few questions and was provided with an analysis of my personality. I was amazed at how accurately the results reflect who I am!

Here are a few things that the test pointed out that you may find interesting:

I am an introvert. This is a surprise to those around me because I can be quite sociable. I do however find solace in being alone. It gives me a chance to reflect on my thoughts without being bombarded by outside influences.

I have withdrawn into myself and show my feelings only at times of great anger, extreme passion or tremendous stress. The scripture II Corinthians 10:5 comes to mind here. "...and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" This is definitely an area I need to submit to Christ.

I am candid and direct. I don't offer my opinion a great deal, but will give it to you if you ask. What kills me is when people ask for my opinion and then get upset when I tell them what I'm really thinking. I'm still trying to figure that one out. One thing that I admired about my Paternal Grandmother, if you really wanted to know the TRUTH, ask her. Now with her you might get the truth whether or not you asked for it. :) LOL

So tell me what your handwriting says about you. Was there anything that surprised you ,but you know to be true looking at it on paper?

  4. I'm afraid to try this one. LOL My handwriting was awful in school also. Still is!

  5. Kysha,

    It can't be much worse than mine! At one point when I was in college my handwriting was fairly decent. My Mother saw some of my notes and asked me who they belonged to! :)

  6. I enjoyed your entries on Toxic Words - such great thoughts and a wonderful reminder to watch the words I use - to be positive and kind and use words to build up rather than tear down. :)
