The space you do or do not leave on the left side of the page represents your past and your need for security. Is your left margin very tiny or about what it would be using notebook paper. A person writing with enthusiasm for their subject may make their margin wider and wider as they can't seem to pause long enough in their enthusiasm to go all the way back to the left margin. Each type of margin tells the graphologist something different about the writer.

The right side is the future so do you stop well away from it like you are afraid of what the future holds? Do you run crashing into the edge of the page and have to squeeze your letters together to complete the last word? Then you do not plan very well. Do you reach the edge and then turn up or down along the edge or do you place that last work under the line. In children learning to write and unsure of margins and word sizes this can be forgiven but in an adult they obviously have never learned from their mistakes.

The amount of space you leave at the top of the page tells how formally you feel toward the person to whom you are writing. The person who writes leaving a large margin at the top such as for a business letter has respect for the receiver of the missive. To a friend the margin may only be a couple of writing lines deep but the person who starts writing right at the top does not recognize bounderies or feels familiar enough to invade your space.

If there is a fairly large border all around the writing then the writer is one who can visualize and judge the amount of space their writing will take and adjust the margins accordingly.
