Does Our Handwriting Tell a Story?

Have you ever felt like you were cursed to carry a heavier-than-the-planet-Earth kind of responsibility that lasts a lifetime unless you do something about it like passing the curse to someone else? That’s the kind of feeling that I get every time someone got me tagged to do a task. Haha! Of course, I’m just exaggerating.

Anyways, for the third time, I got tagged to do something and that something involves writing something and take a picture of it and display it on my something… uhmm blog. At first, I was worried about accomplishing this tag because I never liked my handwriting. But if there’s one thing that this so-called blogosphere has ever taught me, that is to never turn a blogger-friend down especially if that blogger-friend is the ever gorgeous and beautiful Ms. Winkie. Yes, it’s her again for the second time, she got me tagged. I just realized I’m her favorite when it comes to "cursing" err tagging a blogger-friend. But that’s okay, at least that means she acknowledges my existence as a blogger.

And so as I was doing the task, I was wondering who started this kind of tag-game so I could ask him/her what really the purpose of this tag-game is. Is there a moral lesson that one can get out of this game? And then I realized just like any other tag-game, maybe (just maybe) this can strengthen the “bond” or develop friendship among the bloggers.

In what way? Well, Aristotle once said, “Handwriting is the visible form of speech.” In other words, our handwriting can tell a lot about our character as an individual.

"When you pick up a pen and begin to write, everything that ever happened to you coalesces and travels down the nerves from your brain, through your arm, into your hand and out onto the paper in the flow of ink from your pen," wrote graphologist Sheila Lowe in her book, "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Handwriting Analysis,". (O ayan, may libreng plugging pa…^_^)

In fact, graphologists also believe in the connection between handwriting and personality. And since I am not good at describing myself, I think showing my handwriting to you guys is one way of telling a little bit more about myself. (Naks! As if you would care to know more about me. Haha!!)

So without further ado, here are the rules of the tag:

1. Write down who tagged you.
2. Answer these:
- your name / username / pseudo
- right-handed or left-handed?
- your favorite letters to write?
- your least favorite letters to write?
- Write “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”
3. Tag five persons.

Pardon my penmanship guys!

Yes Dencios, Lovely (of AnakngPating), Bluguy, Zyra and Payatot (of Lahat dito Chubby)! I got you tagged. Heheh!! You have to get it done within this week or else something "bad" will happen to you. Just kidding! It's up to you guys, this is not compulsory but we'd love to see your handwritings.

By the way, I took this "What Does Your Handwriting Say About You" quiz. And this is the result.

Your Handwriting Says You Are Somewhat Traditional

You are a fairly energetic person. You know how do pace yourself, and you deal well with stress.

You are very extroverted and outgoing. You are loving, friendly, and supportive. However, you are also manipulative and controlling at times.

You are balanced and grounded. You know how to get along well with others.

You need a bit of space in your life, but you're not a recluse. You expect people to give you a small amount of privacy, and you respect their privacy as well.

You are somewhat traditional, but you are also open to change. You listen to your head and your heart.

You are a decent communicator. You eventually get your point across, but sometimes you leave things a bit ambiguous.


  1. ay naku MON...hmmm parang flavor of the tag yata ako ha? heheh anyways..give me time...more time ..hanggang maklimutan ko na...di nman kailangan kasi may pktyuran pa eh.......mejo busi-busihan ang drama ko ngayon........pero sasagutin ko ito pramis next year maybe?

  3. Pardon your penmanship ei? Ahaha! This is way better than mine and other bloggers who did this tag, c'mon!

    Sabi sa explanation ng handwriting mo, you listen to your head and to your heart. Nice. Panu ba pagsabayin yun? Dami kasi puro puso,o puro utak lang.. Tsk.

  4. @bluguy: yep paborito din kita i-tag.. heeh

  6. Mon, ang sabi handwriting... NOT COMPUTER PRINT OUT! Hehehe! Grabe naman, OA sa ganda ang penmanship for a guy. Sino ba ang binayaran mo para gumawa nyan? Hahaha!

    Seriously, ganda talaga ng penmanship mo. And nice entry ah! I was thinking of doing the same, that penmanship and personality thing. Kaso tinamad ako. Buti na lang ginawa mo. Very informative post!

    Teka naman, parang OA ang description mo sa akin. Baka akalain ng readers mo eh isa akong dyosang gumagala dito sa lugar ng mga taga-lupa, Hehehe! And yes, you're right. Favorite kita... not only to tag ah! You're one of my fave blogger-friends :-)

    2. Ive got that starbucks flask too! Yey! Cool! Mine is blue though.

  9. Blimey, Monz, I'm not sure kung 100% posible ko magawa. Haven't got enough blogger-friends. But thanks anyways?(for asking permission to tag me before doing so) And talagang ZYRA ang inilagay, binaliktad ko na nga yun eh, ginawa ko na Aryz. LOLz. Extra pa 4 letters ng name ko, both letters you hate and love...wooot!

    Choco flavor ba yung Nescafe mo? Share nga tayo, di ako nakakabili eh. You have good penmanship, don't worry, I've seen worst...oOoopppsss....

    I'll shaddap na for now, I don't want myself to get hanged upside down by anyone who will recognize me here. Hey, if someone asked, tell them you haven't seen me... Thanks!

  10. Is that your normal style of writing? It looks more stylized, done just for this purpose, which would, of course, affect the accuracy of the analysis. Still, I thank you for quoting my book :)
