Infographic: What Does Your Handwriting Say About You?

Infographic: What Does Your Handwriting Say About You? | post ideas | Scoop.it

Graphology--the study of handwriting--has long been considered a pseudoscience, in the same family as phrenology and astrology. But a new study claims that the way you write can indicate more than 5,000 personality traits.


This handwriting analysis adds research to what typeface and graphic designers know intuitively--how the aesthetics of letterforms express information. For example, letters with no slant indicate "logic and practicality," as seen in the straight-up-and-down logos of no-nonsense firms like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. The way graffiti writers play with lettering also reflects the study’s results--rounded letters indicate creativity and artistic talent, and spray-painted tags are rarely angular.
