It’s Not All Mary Poppins

What does YOUR handwriting tell you?

Here’s a slightly goofy little handwriting-analysis exercise you can do, and it doesn’t take long. You’ll need the speakers on to hear the analysis.

According to my handwriting, Dr. Ackerman (he MUST be a doctor! he’s wearing a lab coat! and a pocket protector! and has big glasses!) informs me that I am…

– gregarious, emotionally responsive, extroverted, a good lover, trusting
– average
– expansive, unhibited, gregarious, generous
– an aspiring, goal-oriented person
– physical, imaginative, warm, flexibile, free, uninhibited, playful, fun-loving, up for anything, direct (at which point I think Dr. A was thinking … inappropriate … (though flattering) thoughts about me. Which is a little worrying, given that he’d previously told me he thought he might love me.)

Told you it was goofy.

In fact, I’d say only about half the point are accurate, but it was a fun way to waste five minutes. And I do rather like the look of the pen they picked out for me.

  1. Oh, that made me giggle. For my analysis, I got nearly the exact same results as you did (or perhaps THE exact results). Suffice to say that this guy loves us both in an inappropriate way. That’s especially flattering for me, since I’m writing this in my pjs with bed-head.

    Love the pen, and it’s irrational, I suppose, but I need office supplies (start MS/Social Psych on Dec 1), and now I want to go to Office Max, just so I can see that particular pen.

    Allison: No, no, no. You have to sell these things properly. It’s not “bed-head”. It’s “bed-tousled” and thus, tres sexy! And you know, though my handwriting ‘analysis’ was only about half right, they absolutely picked the kind of pen I like. So, yeah, go to Office Max, or — check out comment 3 — write about it, and maybe you’ll get some freebies!
