Steps 8 and 9 of a basic "profile" or analysis are used to evaluate intelligence, thought processing and traits indicated by the speed of writing.

Step 6:


General level of intelligence can be determined by examining the small letters "m," "n," and "r." Someone with a "quick" mind will write these letters with sharp pointed tops. These writers are quick to comprehend and retain ideas. They are usually considered "smart."

Determining how intelligent they really are is impossible, but the pointed top can be considered an indicator of "above average." (This can generally be confirmed by checking into level of education.)

Those who write The "m," "n," and "r" with a round top are slower methodical thinkers. These people can retain just as much knowledge as quick thinkers, but they tend to "think things over" before making decisions. They are not as likely to "jump to conclusions," and tend to be more creative.

The same letters written flat and thread-like point to a person who doesn't have the mental capacity to learn quickly or to be creative. These writers are usually considered "lazy" or "dumb."

Flattened peaks may also indicate that the writer is deceptive, or hiding something. He or she may lack communication skills or not want to communicate for some unknown reason.

Step 9:


The speed of the script reveals much about the writer. Fast writers can be spontaneous, impatient, ambitious, aggressive, negligent, quick thinkers, accident prone, etc. In a full evaluation of writing speed, many other traits must be examined to determine the correct meaning.

Average speed writers are slower thinkers. They can be cautious, creative, organized and so on. Other factors in the script will reveal to its full meaning.

Slow writers show lack of ambition and determination, they are often ostentatious or lack mental capacity.



Applying the nine steps to show outstanding traits.


1. * Pressure: Average. Average amount of energy to make it through the day.

2. * Slant: Right. Responsive to emotional situations. His heart rules his mind. Friendly and outgoing.

3. * Baseline: This sample was written on lined paper, most words start on the preprinted line but ascend, depicting a good mood.

4. * Size of Writing: Small. Good concentration skills.

5. * Zones: All 3 zones are emphasized.

6. * Spacing between letters: Average. Henri feels confident and comfortable about himself.

7. * Spacing between words: Average. He feels comfortable with people contact. He doesn't necessarily like crowds but he is not a loner either.

8. * Speed of writing: Average.

9. * Intelligence: Henri switches between two modes of thinking. Some "m n r" tops are sharp and some are rounded.

Henri is a moderately energetic person. He will have enough energy to make it through the "daily grind." He wants to live life to the fullest, and values pleasures like gourmet foods and luxurious surroundings. He is restless and is always on the go. He wants to lead an active varied life.

Henri has a great desire to accumulate money and material possessions. He is conservative and thrifty, and manages his money well.

Henri is an emotional person who usually expresses his feelings freely. His reactions may be impulsive at times. His emotional energy is moderate, so when he gets mad about something, he can usually calm down in a reasonable amount of time.

Henri switches between two different thought processes. He is willing to slow down his thinking and be more deliberate and precise if he has to. The small script depicts good concentration skills. He has a sharp, incisive mind which can be applied to a problem like a surgeon's scalpel. He can evaluate information, identify the flaws, and fill in the gaps. He has superior investigative skills and enjoys uncovering new information. He can focus his attention and concentrate in spite of distractions.

Intuition plays a small part in Henri's thinking, but logic rules his thoughts, producing continuity in problem solving. This versatility enables him to see both the parts and the whole of a situation or problem. Henri doesn't hesitate when it comes to solving a problem. He jumps right in with both feet. He notices details and pays attention to the particulars of an idea or problem.

Henri is not afraid to speak out and defend himself. He uses his intellect to stoutly defend his opinions in matters which are important to him. He loves a good discussion.

Henri is proud of how he looks and what he is capable of doing. He likes to dress well and demonstrate his talents. He doesn't like others to question his competence. His feelings get hurt when his personal appearance is criticized.

Henri shows many signs of being impatient. He will become frustrated when he is forced to wait or do the same thing over again. Because he is intent on getting things done quickly, he sometimes pushes too hard for the things he wants.

Henri likes having a good laugh, and uses his sense of humor to make life more fun. Henri's determination is a little on the weak side— he can be taken advantage of and give in when pressured by others.

Henri is an outgoing person. He likes to be with people and enjoys meeting new people, but he usually sets aside some time during the day to be alone with his thoughts and recharge his batteries.

Henri sets realistic goals. He is ambitious and works hard to achieve his goals. He is able to benefit from constructive criticism of his work, and doesn't react defensively. Henri's concentration skills and attention to details would make him successful in a job using computers, science or mathematics. He has good finger dexterity and would be good at handling or assembling small parts.

Suggestions. Henri has one minor problem— his determination is low. To cure this problem Henri should cross his "t's" with a slightly upward slant using consistent heavy pressure. This will send a message to his subconscious mind, and over time will raise his determination level.

I see other areas where suggestions can be made, and there are other personality traits that need attention. They are not mentioned here, but would be disclosed in a confidential analysis meant for Henri's eyes only.
