What Does Your Handwriting Say About Your Personality?

On this episode, we explore what you can learn about a person based on handwriting alone. A handwriting analyst for more than 30 years, Dale Roberts of Write Insights and Write Insights Coaching analyzed the handwriting of the Curiosity staff and joined us on the podcast to explain his process. Scroll down to view the handwriting samples he analyzed, and play along at home while you listen!

To examine your own handwriting during this episode, first write the sentence "I'm truly happy to be here today at the party" in print and in cursive, then refer to your sample during the episode.

Writing It Off

Dale Roberts, a graphologist with more than 30 years of experience and co-author of "Handwriting Analysis 101," discusses:

  • Why handwriting analysis works and why people are skeptical of its effectiveness.
  • The upper, middle, and lower "zones" of handwriting analysis and what they can tell you about a writer's personality.
  • How to identify specific personality traits, including but not limited to: the strength of your relationship with your parents; how skeptical, risk-averse, ambitious, or motivated you are; whether a person is stubborn, outspoken, frugal, detail-oriented, or dislikes being in big crowds; and how men and women feel about the opposite sex.
