    Is this question for a class? Or does it come from your own curiosity?

    it does come from my own curiosity, because I know that there are no 100% correct assessments :D

    Yeah I totally agree with that there are no 100% correct assessments. We talked about this in my psych class once. It was a topic of interest, rather than fact. We started out with talking about how much space a person leaves, in between their words. Someone who allowed a larger amount of space, in between their words, was said to be more sociable, and in that, more extroverted. On the other hand, someone who left very little space in between their words was thought to be more internalized, and introverted. We also talked about the way that someone's writing slants, or tilts, when they're trying to write on a blank piece of paper. If you're writing on a blank piece of paper, and your writing slants at an upward angle, then according to "graphologists" (handwriting analysts), you'd be more optimistic and enthusiastic. On the other hand, if your writing were to slant downward, you'd likely be more pessimistic. And if you happen to manage to write in perfectly horizontal lines, across a sheet of paper, then you'd be a more methodical and emotionally disciplined person. We also talked a bit about signatures, since signatures carry a more personal significance. Many graphologists believe that our signatures tell how we want to be seen by others. It's understandable that a large and fancy looking signature would express a desire to be forthright, and noticeable, in society. On the other hand, a small and unremarkable signature might give away a desire to stay out of the societal spotlight. ~~~~~~~~~~ Right now, psychologists do consider graphology more of a pseudoscience, because there's not enough scientific evidence to really back any of it up. But I think it's kind of interesting to think about.

    thank you so much! Your answer impresses me a lot. Anyway, my signature is quite long and it often takes me longer time to finish than the others'. Maybe I don't have perspective to become a CEO :D
