Handwriting Meanings

They say that your handwriting is like body language. This would mean that just like your body language, handwriting can say something about you. You can learn something about someone by just their handwriting. Everyone has a different handwriting.


LOOPY LETTERS: YOU’RE EMOTIONAL According to a handwriting analyst, loopy, curly handwriting is a sign of someone who’s in touch with their emotions and sympathetic toward other people. It could also mean that you follow your intuition.

Perhaps your handwriting becomes more ‘loopy’ when you write with a good fountain pen, but Ls and Es are a good way of showing how you loop as standard.

Narrow L loops: If you have narrow L loops, it could be that you’re holding back or restricting yourself in some way. As a result, you could be feeling tense.

Wide L loops: Wide L loops mean that you’re likely to have a relaxed and laid-back approach to life. You also live for the moment – you’re very spontaneous – and have no problem expressing your emotions.

Narrow E loops: Narrow E loops can suggest you are doubtful and cynical of others, and you don’t tend to let the emotions of others change your opinion on a matter.

Wide E loops: Wide E loops could indicate that you’re up for taking on new experiences and situations and that you’re very liberal and easy-going.
