Color Analysis Guide

The colour of the ink you choose to write with can be revealing – far more, perhaps, than you realise. When you choose one particular colour all the time, it can be a signifi­cant guide to your feelings; there are many colours to choose from nowadays, so you can pick one to suit your personality. Furthermore, there is a wide range of pens available; the type you choose says a lot about your emotional atti­tude. • Sensitive people still prefer a fountain pen, as do many executives and those in authority. • Passionate types go for a thick heavy pen. • Friendly sorts go for a medium pen. • Critical and pedantic types opt for a thin-nibbed pen. BLUE Blue ink shows that you are basically a non-aggressive personality with a warm, friendly and outgoing nature. You are inclined to be sensitive, and there’s a caring side to your nature. You are often employed in areas such as nursing, social work and aiding the less fortunate. A very bright blue pen shows a more sensitive nature, highly strung and sometimes lacking in physical energy and drive. You are very susceptible to atmosphere, people and places, and may have an interest in spiritual matters. Emotionally you don’t care for friendships that are too intense, and instead seek harmony and peace rather than frantic or erratic relationships that may be shortlived....

Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley – American Entertainer (1935-1977) Famed as much for his image and charismatic, overtly sexual performing style, rock and roll singer Elvis Aron Presley changed the face of the popular culture of his day. Presley grew up an only child after his twin brother, Jesse, died at birth. He started out singing church music in Memphis and recorded his first song in 1954. Two years later he had his first big hit with “Heartbreak Hotel,” and embarked on a recording and acting career that was to span two decades. After more than 100 hit records, 18 of which reached number one, and 33 films, Elvis died of heart failure due to prescription drug abuse.       Elvis Presley’s Handwriting   Elvis Presley’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report The large capital letters signify pride, but the undeveloped middle zone reflects a poor ego. Despite his success, Presley was not a well-integrated person. The writing is filled with restless’ activity on a disorganized page. However, while the baseline meanders, the tendency is to move upward, showing his sense of excitement and enthusiasm for the subject matter. The fluctuating height of the upper-zone letters indicate Presley’s conflicting feelings about authority figures. He had great respect for authority, but it was tempered by resistance to rules and regulations. Elvis Presley’s Relationships The lower zone is malformed and pulls to the left,...

Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe – American Author, Poet (1809-1849) Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston to parents who were traveling stage actors. Orphaned at two, he was sent to live with the Allans, who gave him his middle name but never adopted him. Poe wrote his first known poem, which was never published, in 1824, and went on to eventually become the “Master of the Macabre.” His tale The Murders in the Rue Morgue is considered the first modern detective story. In 1845 his best known poem, “The Raven,” brought him fame but not fortune. After years of alcohol abuse, Poe died in Baltimore aged only 40.   Edgar Allan Poe’s Handwriting Edgar Allan Poe’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report The nature of the sample, a poem, probably makes the writing more formal than Poe’s normal style. The handwriting is well organized and shows good symmetry in’^the various aspects of space, form, and movement. There is greater regularity here than in other samples of his writing, and also more linear strokes, indicating unreleased tension. It is known that Poe was a heavy drinker, and he may have needed the release that the alcohol provided. Whatever other effects his drinking had, he generally remained functional. The fairly good spatial arrangement shows that he had enough control to plan his life and time so as to be able to accomplish...

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe – Actress (1926-1962) Norma jean Baker was raised in a series of foster homes. She later became a photographer’s model, which led to a small part in her first movie in 1948. She changed her name and from there her popularity steadily increased until she began to win starring roles in films such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953) and The Seven Year Itch (1955). Adored around the world, Monroe married and divorced baseball legend, Joe DiMaggio, in less than a year. She made her final film, The Misfits, which was written by another ex-husband, Arthur Miller, a year before her death from an overdose of sleeping pills.   Marilyn Monroe’s Handwriting Marilyn Monroe’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report Apparently, this handwriting sample was written while Monroe was a psychiatric inpatient and this would affect her writing according to her emotional state at that time. Despite her obvious anxiety and frustration, the writing is fairly well organized, with a fair spatial arrangement on the page. The most disturbed area is the muddy pressure, which probably indicates some impairment in her moral judgment. From this it can be deduced that substance abuse would have been a likely outlet for her when the stress and pressure became too much. This sample is poignantly reminiscent of another icon who faced similar pressures and challenges during his lifetime, Elvis Presley. Marilyn...

John Hancock

John Hancock – Revolutionary Leader (1737-1793) John Hancock was born in Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard and went to work for a wealthy uncle. Active in the politics of his day, he served as a selectman and member of the Massachusetts General Court, and, later, as president of the Continental Congress. His birthday is celebrated as National Handwriting Day, thanks to his bold signature on the Declaration of Independence, which he is said to have deliberately made that way so King George could read it without his spectacles. Hancock was elected governor of Massachusetts in 1780.   John Hancock’s Handwriting John Hancock’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report The emphasis is on form, or the way the writing looks. As he intended it to, Hancock’s signature stands out with its large capitals, overall large,size, and ornate paraph (the flourish at the end of a signature) underneath. In addition, the handwriting in the text is elaborate, with unnecessary details added to the basic script. For instance, the final d in many words turns back to the left in a large loop and arcs back over the word. A form-conscious handwriting is adopted by one who likes to draw attention to him- or herself and make a big impression. Whether there is substance to back up the first impression is entirely another question. John Hancock’s Relationships Another aspect of form consciousness is...

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin – English Naturalist (1809-1882) Charles Darwin studied classics, medicine, and theology, but it was not until he took a position as a naturalist on the HMS Beagle in 1831 that he found his true calling. During the voyage, Darwin became certain of the gradual evolution of species. After more than 20 years refining his ideas, and by this time battling ill health, he published the controversial On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, in 1859. This was followed by several other volumes. Darwin was not the first naturalist to propose the idea of evolution, but is probably its best known proponent.   Charles Darwin’s Handwriting Charles Darwin’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report Darwin’s handwriting has the light, airy quality often associated with the scripts of philosophers and other intellectual types. Light pressure and large intervals between words and lines create islands of space that serve to isolate him on a social level, but simultaneously give him room to think. Darwin was clearly a * loner who required a great deal of time and space on his own in which to develop the ideas that proliferated in his cerebral upper zone. Charles Darwin’s Relationships Considering the wide spatial arrangement and small middle zone of the writing sample, anyone in a relationship with Darwin would have had to be highly independent and happy to amuse...

Marie Curie

Marie Curie – Polish-born French Scientist (1867-1934) Born Marie Sklodowska, Marie Curie is famous for investigating radioactivity and for twice winning the Nobel prize, once (for physics with Henri Becquerel and her husband, Pierre Curie, in 1903, and then .25 the sole winner of the prize for chemistry in 1911. Both physical chemists, the Curies worked together to discover two new elements, polonium and radium, and had two daughters before Pierre’s sudden death in 1906. Marie Curie continued their work, became the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne in Paris, and went on to develop the use of X-radiography. Curie eventually died of leukemia, the result of exposure to radiation. Marie Curie’s Handwriting Marie Curie’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report Curie’s handwriting has a beautifully balanced flow and rhythm—there is neither too much emphasis on contraction nor too much on release. This indicates that she could express her feelings in appropriate ways and at the right time. The slight emphasis on the arcade form in this broad spatial arrangement tells us she was a private, conservative person who respected history and tradition, even while she may have challenged it. Marie Curie’s Relationships There is a good distribution of garland forms among the arcades, which is a sign of receptiveness. The rightward slant blends with a moderately strong degree of connectedness to reveal someone who cared about others, even...

Thomas Alva Edison

Thomas Alva Edison –  American Inventor (1847-1931) He was born in Milan, Ohio, the youngest of seven children. He was a poor student at school partly due to an undiagnosed hearing problem, yet, as an adult, he became the foremost inventor of his day. Edison was only 10 years old when he set up his first laboratory in his father’s basement. After working as a telegrapher, Edison moved to New York in 1869 to concentrate on inventing. He went on to patent more than 1,000 inventions and is credited with inventing the electric lightbulb, the phonograph, the Edison storage battery, the electric pen, the mimeograph, and the first motion picture projector. Thomas Alva Edison’s Handwriting   Thomas Alva Edison’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report Edison’s handwriting combines strength and flexibility. The chief connective form is the garland, an adaptable, open form that illustrates one who is receptive and willing to listen. He had the capacity to make quick changes of direction and to try new methods when old ones were no longer working. On the other hand, the long, strong f-crosses are made by someone who had no difficulty giving orders, and the upright slant provides additional strength to the garlands. Thomas Alva Edison’s Relationships Some words have many breaks between letters, while others have a greater degree of connection. In some cases one word even connects to...

Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens – British Author (1812-1870) Emotionally scarred as a child when forced into a workhouse after his father was sent to debtor’s prison, Charles Dickens later used that awful experience in some of his most famous literary works, including David Copperfield (1850) and Great Expectations (1861). He began his writing career as a freelance reporter in 1829 and went on to write the Pickwick Papers (1837), which made him famous. Editor, journalist, and novelist, he produced an impressive body of work including numerous classics. Against doctor’s orders, Dickens continued to travel and do public readings until his death.   Charles Dickens Handwriting Charles Dickens Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report Dickens’ handwriting has a wonderful, flowing rhythm within a speedy script, which indicates a mature integration of the various aspects of his life experiences. He was a man of grace and style, as well as sensitivity, as seen in the moderate variations of middle-zone size and in the well-developed upper zone. The literary d also appears in his script, a sign of a natural writer. Charles Dickens Relationships The moderate right slant reveals emotional response, but also emotional control. Add to that the wide spaces between words and the de-emphasized lower zone, yet strong degree of connectedness between letters, and we see a conflict. Dickens was someone who needed to feel connected with others, but who could not tolerate...

Princess Diana

Diana Princess of Wales (1961-1997) Diana Spencer was born into the English aristocracy. She grew up to become a nursery school teacher, and in 1981 married Prince Charles. The older of her two sons, William, will eventually become king of England. As Princess of Wales, Diana found herself in largely unwanted, often intrusive limelight, but also in a position where she could support charities helping the homeless, drug addicts, poor children, and AIDS victims. Her marriage, never the fairytale of popular myth, came to an end in 1992 when she and Prince Charles separated. Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997.   Diana’s Handwriting Diana’s Personality overview according to the handwriting analysis report Diana’s handwriting is large and round, with an openness that suggests someone who was always ready for something new and different. While generally friendly, the variable spacing between the words indicates that she was not always consistent socially and could sometimes withdraw unexpectedly. Her emotional nature is seen in the loose rhythm, so she was quick to express how she felt and would laugh or cry quite readily. However, the upright slant, which is taught in British school models, provides some control over her emotions. She was able to wait for the appropriate time, so long as an emotion was not too strong. Diana’s Relationships The soft, released rhythm in rounded handwriting...
