analysis.

Whitney's good friend, Naomi, agreed to analyze my handwriting. The analysis of handwriting is actually called graphology. I've never met Naomi before, so it was fun to write a pen-pal type stranger (she is one of my newest friends) and it made me really curious about the results, as they were unbiased.

I decided to post the results in my handwriting-- it just seemed to make sense:Of course I like the results, as they are mostly complimentary. Some of them seem stunningly accurate. I even agree with the less favorable parts.

The only thing that I only partially agree with is that I try to hide a part of myself by writing in all caps. I started writing in all caps in the eighth grade certainly with that intention, but at this point, it's been a habit for over ten years. I don't even know how to write naturally in lower case letters anymore.

There is an admitted narcissism to personality tests and horoscopes that attracts me. I think it is so fun to (a.) see how accurate you think the test is and (b.) attempt to see yourself from an outside perspective.

Thanks Naomi!

laura, i'm so glad you liked it. it can be a little scary telling people these things about them that may or may not be accurate. but cool people like you are very fun to interact with and i welcome you as my newest friend as well!

What about the Disney-esque capital "Y's"?

Costi said...

the huge, over-sized Y was a toughie. i have not yet run into something like that. that is where the defiant quality comes into play. the larger the difference between the over-sized letter and the rest of her writing, the more alarming. it could mean even having violent tendencies, but in this case it wasn't so bad...

Oh man, now I want to know what the handwriting of a violent criminal looks like.
