Handwriting Does Tell You a Lot!

An analysis of my handwriting was triggered by my ex-teacher's, whom I met after 9 years, second most prominent recollection of me, I had a BAD handwriting. Driven by co-incidences as my life is, today morning I found a link for Handwriting Analysis on Sanjukta's blog. The results of the analysis are as follows:

For a graphologist, the spacing on the page reflects the writer's attitude toward their own world and relationship to things in his or her own space. If the inputted data was correct Rahul has left lots of white space on the left side of the paper. Rahul fills up the rest of the page in a normal fashion. If this is true, then Rahul has a healthy relationship to the past and is ready to move on. The right side of the page represents the future and Rahul is ready and willing to get started living now and planning for the future. Rahul would like to leave the past behind and move on.

So far so good!

Something is incomplete in Rahul's life. He feels frustration relating to his physical needs and desires. Somewhere in his life there is some disappointment, non-fulfillment, and interruption. This is very likely to relate to Rahul's sexual needs.

Now now, this embarassing stuff. Damn you, analyzer!

Rahul is sarcastic. This is a defense mechanism designed to protect his ego when he feels hurt. He pokes people harder than he gets poked. These sarcastic remarks can be very funny. They can also be harsh, bitter, and caustic at the same time.

Hmm...

Rahul's true self-image is unreasonably low. Someone once told Rahul that he wasn't a great and beautiful person, and he believed them. Rahul also has a fear that he might fail if he takes large risks. Therefore he resists setting his goals too high, risking failure. He doesn't have the internal confidence that frees him to take risks and chance failure. Rahul is capable of accomplishing much more than he is presently achieving. (Boss, are you reading this?) All this relates to his self-esteem. Rahul's self-concept is artificially low. Rahul will stay in a bad situation much too long... why? Because he is afraid that if he makes a change, it might get worse. It is hard for Rahul to plan too far into the future. He kind of takes things on a day to day basis. He may tell you his dreams but he is living in today, with a fear of making a change. No matter how loud he speaks, look at his actions. This is perhaps the biggest single barrier to happiness people not believing in and loving themselves. Rahul is an example of someone living with a low self-image, because their innate self-confidence was broken.

Man! I am amazed at the degree of accuracy of this analysis! Most of the above is true. But can't recollect who 'someone' was, if there was one. Your days are numbered, buddy!

In reference to Rahul's mental abilities, he has a very investigating and creating mind. He investigates projects rapidly because he is curious about many things. He gets involved in many projects that seem good at the beginning, but he soon must slow down and look at all the angles. He probably gets too many things going at once. When Rahul slows down, then he becomes more creative than before. Since it takes time to be creative, he must slow down to do it. He then decides what projects he has time to finish. Thus he finishes at a slower pace than when he started the project. He has the best of two kinds of minds. One is the quick investigating mind. The other is the creative mind. His mind thinks quick and rapidly in the investigative mode. He can learn quicker, investigate more, and think faster. Rahul can then switch into his low gear. When he is in the slower mode, he can be creative, remember longer and stack facts in a logical manner. He is more logical this way and can climb mental mountains with a much better grip.

Someone pinch me! Am I being watched? Is this a remake of The Truman Show? I think all of the above paragraph is accurate.

Rahul will be candid and direct when expressing his opinion. He will tell them what he thinks if they ask for it, whether they like it or not. So, if they don't really want his opinion, don't ask for it!

Boss, now you know why I talk the way I do!

Rahul is moderately outgoing. His emotions are stirred by sympathy and heart rendering stories. In fact, he can be kind, friendly, affectionate and considerate of others. He has the ability to put himself into the other person's shoes. Rahul will be somewhat moody, with highs and lows. Sometimes he will be happy, the next day he might be sad. He has the unique ability to get along equally well with what psychology calls introverts and extroverts. This is because he is in between. Psychology calls Rahul an ambivert. He understands the needs of both types. Although they get along, he will not tolerate anyone that is too "far out." He doesn't sway too far one way or the other. When convincing him to buy a product or an idea, a heart rendering story could mean a great deal to him. He puts himself in the same situation as the person in the story, yet he will not buy anything that seems overly impractical or illogical. Rahul is an expressive person. He outwardly shows his emotions. He may even show traces of tears when hearing a sad story. Rahul is a "middle-of-the-roader," politically as well as logically. He weighs both sides of an issue, sits on the fence, and then will decide when he finally has to. He basically doesn't relate to any far out ideas and usually won't go to the extreme on any issue.

Correct again! Mostly! I mean I do have the tendency to contemplate going to the extreme.

People that write their letters in an average height and average size are moderate in their ability to interact socially. According to the data input, Rahul doesn't write too large or too small, indicating a balanced ability to be social and interact with others.

Correct.

I am impressed! Sorry, I am Rahul.
(One thing the analysis missed is that Rahul has a natural gift for cooking horrible jokes. Of course, the 'joke' part is understood and acknowledged only by him! For instance, if a poor joke is represented as PJ = P + iJ, where i is iota, we can see that the Joke part (J) is imaginary. *Shameless smile*)

@kapsingh: Oye praji, handwriting analysis is like any other analysis, its accuracy depends on the correctness of the input that you give!

Anyway its like simming, works for some paunches, not for others ;-)

Hey Rahul, man its so eerie I too think I am being watched given the accuracy in the analysis and now its even more uncanny to find that your analysis is exactly (I mean almost)the same as mine...and I did give the proper input...and I am the same sanjukta who is on rediff.
