Manuscript and mixed upper and lower case printing

Manuscript style printing does have three zones so will reveal more than block printing. Actually the size of the writing and any anomalies give you the most information. Extra strokes on the beginning of a letter act as a lead-in and indicate a person who thinks before acting. One who is cautious until they know what is going on and what is expected, especially of them. T and D stems that go above the rest of the mid zone letters will indicate pride, vanity or conceit while short stems will be indicators of independence, low self-esteem or wanting to be "special".

The lower zone unlike typing has no serif on the p and the g is normally straight rather than the connected double oval. As for the y it may be done like the typed y with the right side going into the lower zone for the tail or as a v with a tail. Again deviations from this will give you more information than one made in the usual manner.

So far I have only seem three writings done in true manuscript and I have been studying and analyzing writing since 1993. One was a librarian, one a researcher and one a CPA. In each I was amazed that writing so miniscule could be so totally legible.

A p longer than the rest of the lower zone that tapers off so it looks like an ice pick could be a signal of hostility or a problem in the sexual or instinctual area. The g or y going straight down especially if it has a blunt end would indicate agression or determination. A club ending would be a warning sign of cruelty. While a ladle or cup like ending indicates an unfulfilled need.

Pasty or muddy writing which looks thick or has filled ovals such as an e will indicate the writer's five senses are fully active. They enjoy the pleasures and comforts of life some even too much. They especially like material possessions, luxury, color and textures.

This is very fascinating, thank you for sharing. I am wondering now, if the analysis which seems very general can be narrowed or swayed based on whom is the recipient? Or the issue/topic of which the writer is writing? I know that my writing changes drastically based on factors such as how fast my thoughts are going when journalling to how confident and comfortable I feel about the person I write a greeting card to...

Yes, this is very general because your writing is frozen in time. So your mood at that time will show. Also you write differently depending upon who will be reading your writing just as you describe. Journalling or writing notes to yourself may be written faster or in your own shorthand that even you may later have trouble reading. But a formal message you will take more time and effort with possibly even trying to show yourself in a different light than usual. I want to give you a glimpse of what your handwriting will show but not claim absolutes as they would not fit everyone.
