Analysis (A Hai bun)



Handwriting analysis has long intrigued me. My father introduced me to it when I was very young. The variations of the shapes of letters at the beginning, and especially the ending strokes of a signature, tell so much about the writer’s personality. Most signatures are a blend of more than one style.

Big bold and rounded letters often indicate someone who is very friendly and outgoing… a people person for sure. When the loops are small and precise, with uniform lettering all the way across, it may indicate a person who loves detail and perfection. When the endings of a person’s name have lots of flare, with long connected sweeping motion, and fancy dots on the iz, it indicates a very creative and artistic person.

On the other hand a person whose signature has lots of jagged points in their writing, at the bottom of gz or the top loop letters, or an  extended ending when crossing a t, may indicate someone who is impatient and critical of others. They often are hard to please and hard to live with!

Winter of my life

Cursive// manuscript // blended

My script’s  genius!!!

Kim, at d’verse~Poetry Pub, came up with an interesting challenge today. We are to write a Haibun about writing with pen or pencil that includes a Haiku ending mentioning a season.  My last few poems have been in a humorous vein. This one fits right into that style.

  1. These brings back memories of the times when my friends and I had our penmanship analyzed not so much to know our personality but to tell our ‘fortune’ especially in the love department. 😁 Fun times, those, when we would sorta cling on anything to find our so called soulmate. Ha ha

  2. Nice one, Dwight! Bev also wrote about handwriting analysis and after reading your haibun I’d like to give it a try.I wonder if the analysis now would be different from an analysis done at an earlier age, as writing does change over the years. My writing is small and scrawly, like a spider wandering around a page, with no loops, flourishes or fancy dots. Your haiku says it all for me!

  3. Handwriting analysis was quite popular for a time, and some companies had analysts review applicants’ handwriting! Seems to have fallen from grace now, though. This was interesting.
