Dear Harry,

Thank you for writing again.  I’m sorry to say that I don’t remember analyzing your writing ten years ago, so I’ll have to start from scratch.  I hope you kept your last analysis so you can compare.

Your writing, Harry, is stylized, fast, original, rightward printing.  Many people, like yourself, are now choosing printing over cursive and it is not only because it looks better.  Disconnected script gives the writer a greater sense of control (more) than does cursive.  Using printing is particularly important to you when you want to be accurate, specific, logical, and neat.  Also, many people who produce  visual designs for a living, such as architects, designers, artists, and engineers, choose printing, because it is usually (but not always) more ascetically pleasing. 

By the way, your printing definitely shows artistic talent as well as musical and literary abilities.  You are original, creative, and frequently inspired to produce products that are not only functional, but also beautiful.  You are capable of executing harmonious and attractive work because it is a reflection of your inner harmony.

Your disconnected capital letters are without upper or lower loops so the middle zone of your letters are emphasized, and this shows realism, practicality, firmness, and determination.  It also suggests an adequate self-image, a wholesome self-confidence, and a sensible adjustment to life.  You generally are orderly, emotionally stable, optimistic, and determined.  At times you can be strong-willed, very opinionated, and domineering.  You like having things your way.

Wanting things your way is not necessarily bad because it also gives you a lot of initiative.  As a result, you are ambitious and a self-starter.  You are a good worker and nobody has to tell you what needs to be done.

In addition to all of the qualities mentioned above, Harry, you are also smart, sociable, generous, and enthusiastic.  You certainly prefer activity to contemplation.

Is this similar to your first analysis?

Good luck to you and please don’t wait another ten years to write again.
