Dear Mary Jayne,

Thank you so much for your note and writing sample. I’m very happy to hear that you have always enjoyed reading this column and are interested in keeping it going.

It’s very interesting that your handwriting has never been analyzed. Were you afraid of what you might find out? I hope you find the results to be worth the wait.

Two very interesting characteristics of your writing, Mary Jayne, are that it slants to the right and rises. These two things tell me volumes about the kind of person you are.

Handwriting that slants to the right means that you belong to the sociable group of people where human relationships are important. You are an extrovert so you are active and goal minded. You seek recognition and the regard of others and you are enthusiastic and continually look to the future. You can be restless and need variety and change in your life.

This rightward slant shows your link with the outside world, away from yourself and towards others. Therefore, your writing indicates that you are sociable, friendly, adaptable, generous, self-sacrificing, and affectionate. The negative part of this is that you can be irritable, distractible, and easily influenced.

Mary Jayne, besides slanting to the right your handwriting also rises and this shows optimism. You are usually cheerful and always try to see the brighter side of life. You have faith in yourself and in the future, and you believe that your dreams will turn out well.

Partially because of your positive attitude you are ambitious and a good, dependable worker. You are good at taking care of details and are honest and somewhat reticent. You are self-conscious and keep a lot of your thoughts to yourself. You are not one to exaggerate or discolor things, but will be more factual when presenting an idea or story.

Mary Jayne, you are an intelligent person but the sharp needle points on your small letters (especially Ms and Ns) indicate an inner conflict between a keen mind and a yielding nature, between mental maturity and emotional maturity. At times, your emotional nature cannot carry through with what the mind perceives, and this leaves you feeling weak and frustrated.

In addition to the qualities mentioned above, you are also sincere, kind, tolerant, frank, goal minded, co-operative, logical, and straightforward. You have a strong desire for honest, clear communication.

Thank you again for your note, and I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
