Handwriting Analysis

We've all seen personality tests based on quizzes, or your astrological sign, but how many of you have had your handwriting analyzed? I came across a site today that has a handwriting self-analysis quiz, and at the end it gives a lengthy report on your personality based on your handwriting. Let me tell you, it's frighteningly accurate! It even pointed out a couple aspects of my personality that I keep pretty private. Kinda creepy!

Here are some blurbs about me:

"One way Shelly punishes herself is self directed sarcasm. She is a very sarcastic person. Often this sarcasm and "sharp tongued" behavior is directed at herself." -- YIKES! Yeah, they got me.

"Shelly is a practical person whose goals are planned, practical, and down to earth. This is typical of people with normal healthy self-esteem. She needs to visualize the end of a project before she starts. She finds joy in anticipation and planning. She feels she has the ability to achieve anything she sets her mind to. However, she sets her goals using practicality-- not too "out of reach." She has enough self-confidence to leave a bad situation, yet, she will not take great risks, as they relate to her goals. A good esteem is one key to a happy life. Although there is room for improvement in the confidence catagery, her self-perception is better than average." -- true dat

"In reference to Shelly's mental abilities, she has a very investigating and creating mind. She investigates projects rapidly because she is curious about many things. She gets involved in many projects that seem good at the beginning, but she soon must slow down and look at all the angles. She probably gets too many things going at once. She has the best of two kinds of minds. One is the quick investigating mind. The other is the creative mind. Her mind thinks quick and rapidly in the investigative mode. She can learn quicker, investigate more, and think faster. Shelly can then switch into her low gear. When she is in the slower mode, she can be creative, remember longer and stack facts in a logical manner. She is more logical this way and can climb mental mountains with a much better grip." -- Can I put that on my resume??

"Shelly will be candid and direct when expressing her opinion. She will tell them what she thinks if they ask for it, whether they like it or not. So, if they don't really want her opinion, don't ask for it!" -- couldn't be more true!

"People that write very large tend to be very social and friendly. It seems Shelly has this type of writing. This indicates a need for people and a particular natural ability to socialize and be the life of the party. Now, if Shelly also has specific fears (like fear of criticism or fear of trust) then she will deny she is the life of the party, because fear has overcome her natural inclination to be social. People with large handwriting tend to be effective at anything that requires interaction with lots of people. She is a people person." -- This one REALLY creeped me out. I do deny that I am the life of the party. I'm a Libra (astrologically speaking), also known as being the life of the party. Hmmm...

Interesting stuff. While these sorts of tests may be generalized and non-specific, they sure do give ya some food for thought!
