Slant in handwriting

The slant of a person's handwriting reveals important information about their ability to express, feel, and show emotions. The slant of the handwriting is also one of the indicators between extroversion and introversion.

The more the handwriting slants to the right the more easily it is for that person to express their emotions. These people "reach" out to others, evidenced by the "forward" slant and are willing to comply and work within society. These people make excellent relationship partners, especially if the handwriting is cursive and there is narrow word spacing. Right slanted writers are "givers" not "takers".

The most ideal slant ranges between 70 to 80 degrees. If the slant is too strong; then the person can be too emotional., and lack control over their feelings. A slant within this range is one of the more positive traits in all of graphology. It denotes the person able to feel and express their emotions, yet does not overdo it. They can feel but don't let their emotions rule them; they still stay in control.

The intensity levels of this emotional expressiveness is disclosed by the level of pressure.[ Refer to the page on pressure] The heavier the pressure, the more intense the writer's emotions will be expressed. People who write with a right hand slant reason and act according to their feelings, or their heart. We often use the term "heart over head" These are the people who "go with their gut feelings" when making decisions.

If the slant is more upright; then we have a self-reliant person who is reserved emotionally. Upright slanted writers suppress their emotions. This person neither "reaches" out; nor "pull back". Because of their reserve, they have an uncanny ability to remain calm under pressure. Here is where they have an advantage over the emotionally expressive person. People with upright slants or slighty left make good employees in pressure packed situations like an airline pilot, or paramedic, firefighter, or police officer as example. They think and act with their "head". These people are "head over heart". They use logic and reason to make decisions. They "think things out" rather than rely on any intuition or gut feelings.

The leftward slant is indicative of people who are emotionally unexpressive, introverted, and even selfish. They literally "pull back" towards themselves when they utilize a left hand slant. Left hand slant is the hardest slant to write with. Using this choice is due to emotional withdrawal and repression. They can be defiant, and very difficult to deal with. They just don't trust other people and don't want them in their life. Thus they make difficult relationship partners. The farther the writing sample leans leftward; the more reclusive the person is. Left slanted writers are "takers" not "givers"

Leftward slant writers are often writers, artists, and poets. These people will often show great emotions in their creative works. I interpret this as an exhibition of their inability to express themselves emotionally in reality; and therefore they sublimate these strong emotions in their writing or art.

Extreme leftward slant divulges a hermit, who mistrusts everyone. These few people are extremely difficult to have any relationships with whatsoever. They are cold and completely emotionless. They are insensitive.

The same can be said for the writer who writes with an extreme rightward slant, [any extreme in handwriting denotes a negative connotation] is the person who "gets carried away" with their emotions. These are the people who wind up in jail over a fight about nothing important. They can fall in love instantly, and just as fast, hate that same person shortly thereafter. They have absolutely no controls over their feelings and emotions. Their emotions get the best of them. They carry the label "hothead"

If there is excessive angularity, heavy pressure, or signs of hostility; watch out! People like this can become maniacal and are dangerous.

A similar characteristic of this type of person is the one who rights with a right hand slant, but as the writing progresses across or down the page; the slant grows more and more towards the right. Again, we are dealing with a person who gets carried away with their emotions. The difference is that this person tries to keep a control on their writing; but his emotions win out.

The control of one's emotions is an important factor besides the ability and quantitiy of expressiveness. It is normal to see certain graphology controls, such as some leftward tendency and some upright slants in a right slanted writer. There will normally be some fluctuation in the slant of the handwriting. A little is perfectly normal and desirable.

However, when there is an unusally high degree of slant changes within the sample, and especially if the slant variances follows no particular pattern; then we have either a very versatile and adabtable person, or a very emotionally unstable one. It depends on the overall "form level", but chances are, the person is unstable. Be careful with someone like this.

Important disclaimer: Remember this is just a very basic explanation of this particular aspect of handwriting. It is expressly for the purpose to show the validity by explaining this complex science in simplistic terms.

Do not attempt to analyze a person's handwriting with just the information stated above. Graphology is a hollistic science; one characteristic on its own is fairly meaningless unless an extreme or coroborated with other graphology traits.

Leave handwriting analysis to experts like me. It takes years to be highly trained and skilled in this field, and to learn, study, and recognize all the graphological traits that incorporate this science.
