Your signature is your public face. In our daily life we sign contracts, checks, tax forms, admission forms, bank forms, and other important documents. Many celebrities give autographs, lovers sign letters. Your signature is as unique as your fingerprints. Different people have different styles of signatures. One study found that on an average if a person is given a blank paper the first thing that they are most likely going to write first is their name, or signature. Your signature says a lot about you.
Here are some observations:
1. Size of Signature
A large signature shows a sense of high status. If your signature is larger than your handwriting, it shows higher self-esteem and confidence level.
Those whose signatures are same as their writing (medium signature) are likely to be balanced with a sense of value and modesty. These people do not act or pretend and have knowledge of how they are perceived.
A small signature shows a high degree of self-motivation. Such people do not care what other people think but are likely to have low self-confidence.
2. I-Dot Signature
A signature with i-dot’s speaks about the personality of the person. A creative i-dot signifies that the person is different from the crowd and loves to stand out. The small straight line used as an i-dot talks about the impatient behavior of a person. This person is likely to always be in hurry. No i-dot shows the person does not need heed details and finds it tough to follow minute details. A long and continuous i-dot shows creativity and intelligence.
3. Rising and Descending Signature
Most signatures are rising in direction or descending. Rising signatures show the positive attitude of the writer. Such writers are usually optimistic and have a sense of ambition. These writers have the ability to face tough times or difficulties with confidence head-on. Descending signatures depict a rough patch in your life, it can be depression or pessimism.
Those who have straight and horizontal signatures are balanced in life. These writers are generally satisfied with life and the things coming to them.
4. Signature Underline
A simple underline shows the self-reliance of the writer. Such writers like to follow rules and traditions blindly. The more stylized the underline, the more attention a writer is likely to seek. These writers love to get noticed everywhere and are ready to do anything to be the center of attention.
A zigzag underline shows uncertain behavior of the writer. If the line is toward the right it shows self-reliance of the writer while the left shows uncertainty. Long zigzag lines shows less independence.
5. Other Random Messages
A smooth signature shows the gentle, outgoing, sociable, and charming personality of the writer.
If the signature is not readable towards the end it shows impatient behavior.
If the first letter of the signature is stylized the writer is more likely to be creative and out of the crowd.
If one writes their middle name first it shows attachment to hobbies and disability to make faithful friends.
A signature which has the first and the second name interconnected shows the richness in the character and a strong parental connection.
If the first letter of the signature is stylized and in lower case it shows that the person has highly usable skills that are beneficial for others, not themselves.
Your signature can give many hints about your personality and character. Make your signature wisely as this can leave an impression and your public image to the world.
