    Ugh it's so hard to explain. Here: let me illustrate. The first picture would be if I held it straight. The second picture is how I actually hold it (mirror image). Then I crane my neck to the left and out to re-align.

    my paper is really angled too but it makes it slant a bit to the left...i'm thinking that's not a great indicator of i/e but the other things were fitting.

    Hah! My writing is complete chicken scratch... and I'm a J.

    I also do the turn paper at 45 degree thing. Actually I think many people who tend to really push the pen across the page does that because the arm naturally extends outward in an arc. To place the page completely horizontal will impede pen/arm movement when you're writing fast.

    For this reason, the faster your writing, the more there's a tendency to slant rightward. When you're analyzing handwriting, you're suppose to take that into account. So if you see upright handwriting on a fast hand... the uprightness is deliberately enforced, where as leftward slant is downright unnatural.

    Also the change in letter size in writing is natural. Smaller writing indicates focus and the ability to concentrate. So when you're focused, your writing naturally become smaller and also less expansive. (being more critical, letter spacing decreases). The reverse is true when somebody's writing freely.

    what do you think? Besides the obvious messy writing xD
    Young... Writing seems to correspond to somebody under 16? Sensitive with an incline towards fantasy (rounded loops on the ds and balanced f flourish).

    Your signature at the bottom? There's no need to hide yourself behind fancy flourishes. People are more interested in who you are underneath.

    Not that I (normally) pay attention to people's handwriting, but I do recall some people sitting in very awkward 'inward' positions at the study desk, writing, and their handwriting happens to be slanted a lot to the left. Apparently, they happened to be the most antisocial/shy people, and their seating 'posture' was annoying enough to get the ugly attention.

    ... I'm pretty sure it's to do with the introvert/extrovert of your personality. I'd think handwriting 'spacing' is to do with the feeling/thinking side.

    I have no way of posting my handwriting on here, but I write about 80% straight, 13% to the left, and 7% to the right. It looks somewhat like Haphazard's writing sample.

    My writing is straight with an almost indistinguishable slant to the left. Which also matches my introversion/extroversion.
