Mirroring thru' signatures

Amazingly psychology and human brain and its actions have some synchronized shadowy ways to trace each other and identifying them individually. Problem is human talents have the limit.

Modern graphology claims that our whole personality is spelled out in our handwriting.

Your signature is you
A signature is a microcosm of the whole handwriting. A signature reflects all the traits and underlines the major ones. We can scrutinize it for slant, speed, accuracy, size pressure, and use of space. Moreover, we can look for boldness or acknowledge meekness. We can see whether the writer is spontaneous or cautious, arrogant or modest, open or concealing.
The signature is part of the whole and at the same time a poster. This is me- the signature calls. This how I want to be seen and known. So it is little wonder that the famous personages in history- the kings, princess, and generals- often had enormous signatures. They aimed for a picture of greatness.

Discrepancy between handwriting and signature:
It is important to compare how someone signs a name to a letter and then study the letter itself. Are the sizes the same? If the capitals are proportionate, the signer is truly modest and sees no reason for conceit or arrogance. He or she is the same in public and in private. If someone signs with flourish and a much larger signature than the writing itself, we can be sure of one thing: the writer wants to project a successful, important image, despite personal limitations. Let’s go for further details and clarity-

- The writer wants to give the impression of great success and power, a fact not borne out by the small humble script.

- Certainly there are personalities who are daring and dynamic. A typical one is that- whose bold, innovative letter in the signature really stands out.

- The signature represents the public image and the main body of the script represents what one really is like. The graphologist recognizes here a man who is aware of his own intelligence, taste and artistic gifts. His outer appearance i.e., the signature, tallies with his self image or the writing.

- In the same sense when we see slightly larger than the ‘best regards’ signature, it means this individual want to appear sure of himself. This is understandable for a somewhat young man who if he did not project poise, would not be taken seriously. Some scripts might illustrate other features, such as the optimistically climbing line, and the carefully stretched out hand at the end of the name. This simple, effective efficient ‘letter’ is that of an executive who has learned to organize his time.

We keep in mind that if the script is large, but the signature is small, the writer prefers a different projection- he wants to appear humble. In the meantime, the large script shows his true opinion of himself.
Such discrepancy between the official and the private also extends to the slant. A person may use a backhand slant when penning the name, showing an official position of aloofness, and then write privately with an affectionate lean. Such backhand or at least straight signatures seem understandable when we sign a completely unimportant check. Surely, there is no need to appear affectionate when paying the plumber. Many people deal with accountants, tax collectors, and other strangers in a neutral manner, just as their signatures may slant lovingly when corresponding with their children in a letter that shows that they are normally cool.

All the rules concerning over-sized caps with small middle zones apply to signatures, too. One excellent example is that of over-sized capitals mirror gross conceit and a huge vanity. Stylish capital letter in the signature stands snobbish, and expresses a pushy, ruthless, know it all personality. The arcaded letters are those of a secretive woman. Many writers do underline their names; they want to make it clear that they consider themselves important in their fields or professions. Apart from authors, professors, executives, and architects, actors of many countries use the single underlining stroke.
Smallness and the absence of an underscore is no guarantee of a positive analysis. A simple signature can undulate uncertainty. The signature denotes a lock of self confidence or inner strength. It shows inadequate communication with and fear of other people, moodiness, and insecurity. On the positive side, the sensitivity can be a useful trait for a creative worker.

Thinks to look for in an autograph:
It should be emphasized that many autographs repeat features we may have noticed in the writing itself. Some people sign so many letters that they must simplify the autograph. Here letters are contracted and otherwise abbreviated. It is true that all the rules regarding loops, upper or lower, apply to the signature. The beautifully expanded sail like caps show this well enough. They mirror a person who always uses large upper loops. The latter were always a symbol for a fine imagination. The tapering off at the end of the name, if repeated elsewhere, indicates psychological talents.
Studies show that the sharp, stinging, aggressive angles and points characterize the highly critical, competitive, sometimes irritable person. Some writers roof in their entire name, or even find a way to encircle it. What is the significance of this stroke? It always indicates secrecy; the writer does not want you to look into his or her cards. Many diplomats write this way, as do publishers, industrialists, inventors, and politicians. The encirclement or umbrella formation does not necessarily imply dishonest undercover transactions, but some less than savory behavior cannot be ruled out. There must be at least two or three other graphic proofs of dishonesty.

The signature illustrating one man’s life:
It stands to reason that an individual’s development – the rise and fall of a public figure, for instance – becomes visible via a series of signatures. Graphologists have examined
Hitler’s, Napoleon’s and recently, Richard Nixon’s signatures and found much deterioration.

Positive qualities:
Not many autographs evoke dramatic remarks, or trace a man’s demise. Some signatures contain a great measure of positive qualities. We will thus find it easy to tell much about Eugene Fodor, famous travel guide author and his colleague Arthur Frommer. Both are sales geniuses and in Fodor’s case, we must marvel at the elegant loops and connections that suggest Fodor’s Hungarian charm. It is remarkable how much energy, direction, and sheer optimism radiate from this autograph. Frommer’s ‘Arthur’ is a more ambitious, a more bombastic style, but also daring, dynamic and brainy.

Test our own knowledge and grasp of the rules against some signatures that we come across. Pick out the most compelling characteristics, and then focus on details. Now we are kind of diagnosticians!

Some signatures are funny too. I know one who signs with a line across like cancelling out the signature itself. Interesting hypothesis, dear Karim - siva
