Has your handwriting style changed?

Some say your handwriting style reflects your personality. Honestly I don't know how true that is, but if it's really true, then it means I've had multiple personalities since I first learned how to write. It keeps changing! I think I didn't really pay much attention to my handwriting style until I was 13 or 14. At that time my handwriting was vertical, print-style (non-cursive). The lowercase letters are somewhat rounded, if you know what I mean. Over the years they became "thinner". Now I write by hand much less than before, but my current handwriting style is slanted cursive. What about you? Has your handwriting style changed much?

That's true. Penmanship of every individual reflects his personality. Graphologist how to determine one's personality based on how he writes, the spacing of his words, the dotting of his i's and crossing of his t's. Therefore if you don't have consistent of writing, you have also unpredictable personality.

Interesting field of study, I should say. Unpredictable...that actually describes me pretty well.

My penmanship is terrible because I write with my left hand ( actually I'm ambidextrous left dominant), so I adapted, I could write cursive or clear printed style lettering for people who can't understand my handwriting.

Oh good point! I think I write best with a ball-point pen. And better with a normal 2B wooden pencil than a mechanical one.

@cahaya1983 For me a ball point is the best and it has to have the lid.

I use to have beautiful handwriting @cahaya1983 ; now it looks like chicken-scratching. One thing's for sure, nobody will ever be able to forge my signature on anything.

It is correct that our handwriting tells us about our personality and traits. The art of analyzing handwriting is called Graphology. Our handwriting keeps changing with the passage of time.

Graphology sounds pretty cool. So it's the art of studying handwriting to relate it to a certain personality type?

i tend to write in block letters now because it's mostly lists, notes and reminders. the only time it's cursive is when they need my signature.

@cahaya1983 we were taught and required to write cursive/longhand. even when i started working, i was still writing letters and sending cards to friends. then cellphones, the internet, email, computer and now social media became more in use in the office and personal lives.

@hereandthere Yes we had cursive handwriting as part of our writing lesson too. It was actually of my favorite lessons although I didn't really use that kind of style until much later.

As a kid my penmanship was horrible. I wrote in every direction possible in one word. When told I needed to improve and make my words go in one direction, I did work on it. So now my words look like they should, but I still have scrawly handwriting.

I think there are those that can analyze your handwriting and tell something about you. I use the computer more than I write, but, I am not sure if it has changed or not.
