About This Class


Resistance Traits are never positive but most of us have at least one or two that we use to try to get out own way when we don't like the options being offered. In this course you will see how to identify eight resistance traits in writing, and how to remove them from your writing, should you wish to do so. Life is much easier when we can accept the inevitable and move calmly through even turbulent waters.

Clear illustrations and descriptions for each traits, plus a quiz at the end of each lesson help you learn this easily and in a way that will allow you to use the information you gain immediately. It is also helpful to be able to identify these personality traits in other people's writing.


1. Introduction edit: introduction. There are times in life when resistance is good and even required, but a great deal of the time. It's not. We resist changes, we resist new ideas, we resist other people's influence or suggestions. We resist difficult or unpleasant tests and situations. But it's not just us, everybody else. That same thing, too. And some of the ways we resists do not really point to our finest R's. The personality traits associated with resistance to things we just plain don't like or don't want to do or resembling Proton upon us are not. Personality traits were proud off our want to keep. And most of the time, as he used to say, it's our track. Resistance is futile, so we might as well let go except and move on. And this course is designed to help you do so. I've designed also to help you understand when other people have thes traits that they're using for the same reasons as we do. Here's how to identify any resistance traits you may have in your life and in your writing on how to remove thumb on how this actually works to change your attitude. Firstly, I like to explain how and why it works to change these traits in your handwriting, because I know if you haven't done this type of thing before, it will seem strange to you that if you can change your handwriting, it will actually do something to change your personality and behaviour. But it really does. One obvious way it works is that as you deliberately change talks in your writing for this particular reason, you're very aware of what you're doing. So right from the first time you do it, you're focusing on changing whatever trace it is you're working on changing in your writing . Let's say you want to stop being resentful at what the universe, the government, or any particular organization or person or all of them have done to you or is doing to you each time you make the effort to write. Without that stroke of resentment in your writing, you're focusing on your desire to be more accepting onto panish resentful this from your life. Just this awareness alone. It's a great help to making the change, but that's not all, or anything I call handwriting is actually brain writing. It's your brain, not your hand that decides how each letter ISF armed your hand is just following the instructions. Your brain sends it so as you change your thought patterns and your physical movements, which in this case are your handwriting strokes. You are creating you neuro pathways in your brain. Heres an analogy off how your pathways work. Let's say you have a house in the middle of a field with no path or road in or out. To get from your house to your car part on the edge of the field, you have to walk across the field. After a while, a tracker trail starts to appear on the field where you want crack Iarley. This is how a new neural pathways in your brain happens to is created by constant use. Over time, both the pathway in the field and a neuro pathway in your brain get wider and deeper. However, if one day you decide to park your car in a different spot, you'll fan start to walk in a different direction over the field. As you keep doing that on your track will develop of the old now in use. One will start to disappear. Keep walking the new track and it will come become deeper on whiter on the old one will totally disappear. That's how it is in your brain, too. Stop using a thought pattern or behavior pattern on the neuro pathway will eventually disappear altogether, and only the new one will be there. This happens when you change your writing the pathway in your brain that used to see be irritable. I direct you to write in a way that exhibit set rate gets less and less as you change your writing, allowing you to become less unless irritable eventually. By the time this is the only way you naturally right, the strokes for irritability are totally gone from your writing. The old Europe pathway is gone for your brain, on the behaviour associated with it is gone, too. This is when the transition is complete. This, of course, doesn't only work for irritability, but for any and all personality traits. However, even as you just working on creating these new neural pathways, your awareness of fort your drink and why allows you to curb on one to behavior more and more. So now let's take action and fight out. How to identify and remove if you want to remove the eight personality resistance traits from writing 2. The Resistance Traits: the resistance traits. So here are the H resistance traits. Irritability, temper, sarcasm, defiance, stubborness, argumentative, aggressive and resentful. As you can see, these air traits that say in some way or another that life isn't being fair to or isn't new fair to whoever did the writing, that showing these traits on that you're not willing to let it get away with it. So you resist. You object, you act out. You're determined that life will see how much you are rebelling against it. The scent work? No, of course, it doesn none of these traits of positive art. Cubs suddenly have temporary benefits, but in the long run, none of these traits will do you any good at all. So here's how to first identify which ones were present in your writing or in any other piece of writing that you have. And it's not always the traits that you expect. You may be seeing somebody behaving and think this is something, but when you look at the writing, you'll find it comes from another source on that is amazingly helpful in dealing either with yourself or with somebody else. So once they're identified, you'll then find out how to remove them from you writing and also from your behavior. And after you've seen how to identify the resistant traits, you'll immediately understand how to remove thumb as well. It's simple. You just stop doing this stroke that is showing the trait. It's very simple indeed. 3. 1 Irritability: number one. Irritability, irritability shows in writing where the I dots are jabbed or slashed or where jabbing or slash jokes appear anywhere, not just in I dots and you see in that example there there are three I like have even called them. I dots I Slash is where I dots would normally be fit, just jabbing at the paper. So this is a very irritable person here. Here's another one you see there that I don't again. It's just a jab. It's a different kind of job in the last one. It's, Ah sort of street across the more of a block, but nevertheless it is a jab. It's not an idot, so it's irritability, and this one again is more back to the slashing again. But anything that's not a proper I don't this jab that mean if someone draws and I got that's different. But something is. Son in a hurry with a jab or a slash is always irritability, and if you see anywhere else in the paper, it could be a comma. Could be meant to be a period a kiss. You'll get a T bar that way, not very often. So here's a quiz for you to identify where you see irritability. Therefore, examples for you here. And I'd like you to passivity eel and have a good look at it. And then once you've done that, go on to the next site and we'll have the answers for you. So here the answers. So the first example there are I dots that point neatly tires that pike Nikolay toe I dots . These are just dots. So this is definitely not an irritable person in this. Finally, I dots while not all of them. But some of them are drawn circles and that does have a meaning. But it's not irritability. Is that actually an idiosyncrasy? This person likes me a little bit different. The first I in writing the first word is just a dot so it just means loyalty. Sincerity is a perfectly normal dot So this one again shows no irritability in the eye dots , and there are no Japs are slashes anywhere else either. Here's one that has some jabs. So this one is an irritable person. These air little jab e i dots and the last one has to die jabs. So again, irritability is showing. So how did you do with that? 4. 2 Temper: number two. His temper temper is a relatively common trait to find, so when you find it, check how strong it is for example, how often it appears compared to how often it could appear in the writing to find out whether or not it's a significant part off the writers behavioral patterns with any of thes traits. If it just appears once in a whole page of writing, or very occasionally, then it's a trade the person has. But it's probably not going to be that noticeable in their behavior, whereas, if it appears every time it could appear, are almost every time that it's a pretty strong treat and you undoubtedly will be able to see its effect on the person's behavior. Timber shows when the T bar is to the right off the tee sem and not crossing it, it can either touch the tea Sam as you'll see in the first word tell, or it can not touch the T bar as you'll see in the first word on the second line than that people are actually touches the age. But it certainly doesn't touch the tea, so any tea bar that does not cross is considered to fill temper the ones, too. Last season, this example, the one in the word to it's not really a T Bars is that flourished on the oldest, went to substitute for Tea bar, so that doesn't really count on the one of future actually comes back. If you see this little loop there, it comes back to the left and then crosses so it doesn't cross by much, so it does cross it. Kevin backs up the idea of a temper, but it itself doesn't short temper. But this person has a pretty strong temper. Nevertheless, social. See, cause this five out of seven. Here's another example. Here, both of thes ones touch, but they still show temper because they don't cross there just to the right of the T bar. And these ones the first to do not touch their often right, not touching the second to the last to deter pretty ation they actually cross. So this person does have a temper, but it's 50 50 so sometimes that will show sometimes it won't show. Here's a quiz for you to see if you can identify temper again. Just have a look at all. For examples positive video to have a good look and the answers will be on the next site. Here are the answers. So in the first example, the T bars all cross. I have been hours to all the tea bars, but every single one of them crosses city. So absolutely no temper showing in this right wing whatsoever, not even a hint of it in this one. The T bar is off to the right Very noticeably is not touching. So that person definitely has a temper. The further way the T bar is from the tea stem, the more explosive temper. So if this person has a more explosive temperatures, someone who's T bar is still off to the right but is actually touching the TCM. This one is good example off someone having a somewhat explosive temper. Now look carefully at peace because on Lee, one of thumb shows temper. Which one do you think it is? The word not on the word negative. The T bar is above the TCM, but if you made the tea sam longer, it would go right through the T bar. So it's not off to the right. The only one that's off to the right is, in the word the where it's very definitely off to the right, so it's a blasting temper, so this person really doesn't doesn't show the temper mostly time, but they do have a temper, and T bars are floating above the stem. Not not low enough to touch it are dreamer, so this person's a dreamer. But if you disagree with their dreams, they're liable to lose their temporary and the last one. There are two T bars, but only one of them shows temporary one, and information crosses the Welland paths does not. It's off to the right, so that went also shows temper. 5. 3 Sarcasm: trade number three is sarcasm. Sarcasm shows in a T bar When you see a T bar that gets lighter as it goes along and ends up fading out to nothing. This is a trait of sarcasm, and it's a treatise sometimes have to look pretty closely to see. But it is this Casey that when it gets narrower and it ends in a point. So that is sarcasm. This one also shows optimism there. T bar. Great Uphill is optimistic, So this person's sarcastic but cheerful about it. So it's probably not the nasty kind of sarcasm. It's more fun kind of sarcasm. Here's another example on the T bar here Goes down are going talk about the next signed. So for now, just look at it and see it gets narrower as it goes down. So sarcasm is very definite in this writing. You can't tell in the words of the because the T bar ends up in the H, but all the rest you can clearly see, and this one is kind of Apache. It looks like it's being scratched in, but nevertheless, the tea bars do get not or as Sekula. So again, sarcasm is definitely present when the sarcastic T bar as well is fading out to the right, also slants downwards to the right, this is an indication of a domineering attitude taking charge in a sarcastic, negative way. T bars it go downhill, but don't fade out if it was like they are there. But the end up bluntly in the fact that one in today the last word can kind of does, said ends bluntly. That's dominating that someone who can take charge in a positive way. But what it fades out to nothing with sarcasm is Someone who tries to take charge wants to be in charge, but he turned to be sarcastic rather than a leader. So here's a quiz for you to see where sarcasm insurance So have a good look at it on. Once you've checked out all four examples, go apart. A video to have a good look that go on to the next site and you'll see the answers there to hear the answers to the Chris. So the 1st 1 the tea bars definitely do not fade out to nothing there solid all the way along. Every one of them, even the ones they last won a study that I don't have a narrative. They're all very solid, so there's absolutely no sarcasm in here. However, if you look at this writing, look to my dots. Well, it doesn't tell you about this person. They're irritable, right? So as you go through looking a different example, she'll see Do check out traits you've already covered. It's good practice to see what you can identify as you go through. The 2nd 1 definitely has sarcasm. The tea bars fade out to nothing the last year and thought isn't so obvious, but the other ones. I don't have a narrow to the last word, which I think is also the word thought. It's being cut off, but it also has of the fading Out T bar. So there are four out of five, which definitely fade out. So very definite sarcasm in that writing again sarcasm. Every T bar their fates out to Duffy. It's easier to see it in the previous example cause the writing's happier, but if you carefully at this one, it definitely does fade out. So sarcasm there as well. And this one? Nope, no fading out at all. So absolutely no sarcastic there. So keep checking all the different traits as you go through 6. 4 Defiance: number five is defiance, and its defiance of authority is the full title. Defiance of authority is just what it sounds like. It's someone who really doesn't like to be told what to do, whether it's by parents, teachers, bosses, the government's heavy one. Some defiance will be more obvious than others, as that depends on other traits and the writing. But all will have that defined attitude inside them. Defines of authority shows and writing where the second part off the lower case K goes higher than the other lower case letters. This is someone who likes to go their own way, do their own thing, and not about to convention or others restrictions. It may look like a capital K or it may not, but it is higher than other Kate. Lower case letters is defines of authority on this one. In books Decay. The second part of the K doesn't touch the first part. That doesn't matter that's not relevant to what we're doing. And actually, the last word. I don't have the last word on the left. I don't have a narrow tube, but that, I think, is the word like I'm not harm percent. Sure But if that's like, that's another cake. But one way or the other books definitely shows defies authority. So here we're going to look at some our case. So there is the defiance of authority in there and networking that looks like a Capital K. But it's right in the middle of a word, so it isn't so. It's defines of authority. Interestingly enough, the end beginning that nice curly tail go against the end shows humor. So this person defines of authority with humor. There's an enormous one of work, very strong defines of authority that's just enormous. Then both book and look sure, defiance again look and weak. You notice the case that done differently. Some of them are kind of printed, like a capital. Some of them are written. Script doesn't make any difference if the second part of the K is hard in the lower case, letters that defines of authority is present. So here's a quiz for you has always have a look at all for examples past the video, see take your time and then go on to see the answers on the next site. So here we have the answers. The K in bunker is very large, so this one definitely shows defiance of authority. The K here has quite a fat loop, but it's not tall. It's no higher than the other lower case letters. So this one does not show defiance of authority again. Very noticeable case, but definitely no higher than the other lower case letters. So no defines for authority. And the last one, the K is higher. It's not really a lot tire, but it is, her say. Defines of authority also shows in that one. 7. 5 Stubbornness: five stubborness. The southern person sticks to their guns even when proved wrong. Many people who have firm views some things are considered suffered or consider themselves suffered. But the trade has it shows in writing or relates to those who will not accept a different point of view, even when they've been proved to be completely wrong. Their first stubborness, as identified here, can be very difficult for other people to deal with. Stubbornness Chosen 100 Jing, where the lower half off the Lord case T or D splitters out at a white ankle and you'll see there's one in the D at in both teas, where it comes out from the circle part of the D and makes a wide angle compared with the where the line comes back down again on the same when it goes out for the tea and then it comes back down at the baseline, it has to be a really wide angle. I mean, you have to some kind of angle just well to write the letter, but when it's a really wide angle like that, that shows stubborness, someone who will sit to their guns and refused to give up their position. Here's another one. Those all have the whites play at the base, and you have to a lead in stroke for it. It is just a T that starts talkin, comes down and you can't tell if it's separateness. But these ones all show the whites play. Now look a t, the very 1st 1 in the writing that does not show stubbornness that is open all the way up to the top. So that is not stubbornness. It has to join or form a loop. You'll see the word, and brother in the middle has a small look as this equity and excellent on the two teas on the bottom line don't have lips. It doesn't matter. It's a love story. Truly see what we're looking at is just a bit at the bottom, and this one has a flip back. The T bar flips back, but the T stem is joined at the top, not at the bottom. So seven. These are stubborn people. Here is a quiz for examples past the video. Have a good look and then go into the next line and see the answers. So here we have the answers. They have sleaze definite splay out at the base. So definite separateness shows. There, you'll see the tea is just a straight line down. It doesn't have a leading stroke, so it can't show soberness the first tee the second he could other word on. But But it doesn't. Here we have two T's into D's, and there is no stubborness showing at all in any of them. The T here shows several nous. Now there are two other teas and not a negative on. They do have a bit of display, but the first part of a stroke does not reach the baseline. You'll see the stroke pickles into the tea, the other to tease. It goes in quite high up. It has to come in from the baseline to farm thusly for supper nous so these ones cannot show stubborness. There's only one there that shows stubborness, and the last one there no splay, no stubborn. How did you find that? With 8. 6 Argumentative: six. Argumentative. We all know someone who's argumentative, but it may not be a serious argument. Some people just enjoy playing the Devil's Advocate or engaging in a good debate. Which two others may well seem like an argument. But no matter which type of arguing is, it will show in the writing as argumentative to see if it's fun are serious. You have to look for other negative or positive traits in the writing, so we'll just be identifying argumentative, whether it's positive or negative, argumentative shows in writing where the stem off the Lord case P extends above the circle or curved part of the letter, and you'll see the three piece of there have the extension going quite far above, especially the 1st 1 It really sticks up above. And if someone's sq, But that's the way I was taught. That is no excuse for anything because we're all taught, no new adult nor normal adult ever writes exactly as they were taught. We all change things in a writing that don't fit her personality as we grow up as we develop our personality. So anyone who still writes API the way they were taught in school is because the way they were taught in school is a fit for the personality. So it's not always wise to argue with someone who says that. But do bear it in mind whatever shows in your writing, you have chosen to be in your writing because once you're an adult, no one is forcing you to write in any different way here. Another two again, very tall. This is a different type of P. They're not very well written there, almost flat, but that P does not have a circle. It's just got a ah ha black and each normally. But again, it definitely goes way above so very argumentative these ones are. There is some argument itiveness there, but it is much smaller. This parsley is not nearly a strongly argumentative is the one above on the first PM Please does not have any argumentative atoll, so let's have a quiz on argumentative. See what you can identify. Have positivity was seen, Have a good look answers on the next flight. Okay, so the answers. So the first P has a very strong, very long point up on the top. The second piece still has a point, but It's not nearly so long and you'll notice the's piece of written quite differently than the other ones. This this person doesn't down stroke on, then takes a pen off the paper and does kind of back to front. See, But it's still a P, and it still it still qualifies that the extender goes way up off. So it's argumentative, very argumentative. The second example there are two peas and they don't go up off at all. So no argumentative this in there at all. Interestingly enough, that T bar, the upside down saucer shape means self control. So this person is not controlling argumentative this cause they don't have it. So it needs some more reading to work out what they were controlling again. P written a different way, but again, it's six up above the Lord case letters. So this is an argumentative person. The other thing is interesting. This one is there is a loop on the lower half off the P. The 2nd 1 cut off isn't all there. The 1st 1 is and that's it is our for physical activity. So if you combine a desire for physical activity with argumentative nous, what do you get a physical argument, perhaps now the first PM This one is a capital, so we can't look at that one. So it's just the p incomplete and it very, very, definitely his argumentative, very tall, tall stems sticking out up above. 9. 7 Aggressive: seven aggressive aggressiveness has two different connotations in handwriting won. The negative one is someone who is very pushy, overbearing and insists on getting their own way no matter what. However, there's also positive aggressiveness, which is when the trait appears in the writing only mildly. This really is enterprising, someone who's willing to push ahead to get things done. And usually, although you will be very much aware that this person is on the move, it's a positive trait and doesn't involve stomping all of our other people to achieve one's goals. They both showing the same stroke but as I say is what it's mild is enterprising. When it's strong, it's aggressive. Aggressiveness is present when the writing shows the tail off the J. Why P or G returning to the baseline on the right side, off the downward stroke Q. Does not apply because you expect it to go that way. An F would apply, but I've never seen a left on that way because it really wouldn't be recognisable as an F. So usually it's itchy. Why, jay, you don't usually see it in a P, although it's possible. So here we have it in a why and a g it doubt the stroke goes down to the baseline and then it comes back up to the left hand side as please out at least part of the way up from the bottom. The Lord out explains out from stronger the aggression the word you on the actually is two word to use. The word you on the second line shows definite aggression. There. One on the third line would be with more enterprising, a sort of retraces in them. Flips over G and things shows some aggressiveness. But P she was strong aggressiveness. And here the G shows stronger, stronger, aggressive, astounded DeJean looking so a stronger aggressiveness, energy in being. But both are showing aggressiveness. The G and being would be the more enterprising the G in looking with more than pushy type. So this part, actually, both of these people have both got both writing samples. They have a mild one on the strong one. So both of these are the type of people who will start off being enterprising. But if that's not working for them, they may end up being decidedly pushy. Here's a quiz for you. See what? Where you can identify aggressiveness, and these four examples answers on the next slide. So here we have two G's and a why which are all very, definitely aggressively swing out to the right from the very base. So this is someone who is definitely aggressive, pushy. Now there's a queue in here, but there. Why? Why doesn't show it and acute doesn't count. Remember I said that to begin with, because that's how accuse meant to be written. So this one shows no aggressiveness whatsoever. It does, however, show temper, you know, singing at the tea bars off to the right, and it's showing irritability with the. The eye dotting question is almost like a little hook, and I'm not quite sure what third word is, but the I don't again, this is not a proper dot, so this person is not exactly dorsal, but they're not aggressive Here We have loops, two loops on one just stick going straight down. So absolutely no aggressiveness are you. Don't sing the temper, however we have. This one, actually is the example for temper. Agitated has to tempers, but no aggressiveness on the last example has aggressiveness in the G, so that one has some aggressiveness, and if you're going to be a weightlifter, I think you probably need to be a little bit aggressive. 10. 8 Resentful: eight resentment, resentments does in writing where the initial stroke switch has to start at or below the baseline. On the baseline is the line you be writing on. If you were using line paper where it starts at or below the baseline, and it's absolutely straight, the least curve removes the resentment. And as you'll see here, there are several that come in there that are absolutely straight. The word keep is not resentment, because that stroke, the first stroke and keep would be coming from the top down. But the ones that the hours pointer of all started at the baseline going up there absolutely straight. So it's a lot of resentment about writing here. We have resentment again, frequently not in every word. You'll see the word analysis of the second line. It has a little stroke going into it, but it doesn't started baseline. The word your at the end of the second line has, ah, line coming in from the baseline, but it's got a little bit of a curve to it, so that again it's start resentment. But any time is a really straight line. Coming in is shows resentment again here for some reason these air very skinny little strokes that are coming in. But they're all very, very straight. So strong resentment showing there, too. It's not every single word, however, so there is good reason. There is a good deal of resentment, but it's not absolutely everywhere it could possibly be. So here's a quiz for you aren't resentment. So have a look and all the examples as usual, and then go on to the next slide to find out whether you identified correctly where resentment is. So here are the answers to the quiz on resentment. This one has absolutely no dagger shape lead in strokes coming from after below the baseline. So absolutely no resentment showing in that writing. What so ever are you noticing the I dots for irritability? Are you noticing the tea? Which shows separateness? This one? Hannah Some where the Blue Arrows show it is a straight line, but there are other ones that have either no line or the T in the word. The on the first line has a curve, so there is some resentment here, but it's not really, really strong. This example here has leading strokes, but none of them are really, really straight. So no resentment showing here at all, and then the last one. There is very strong resentment showing in there. It comes right from below the baseline up. So that was two was perfect resentment. So I hope you found these quizzes helpful on DA. Just check through all the writing samples and see what other traits you can identify other than ones that are in that specific lesson. 11. How to remove Resistance Traits: how to remove resistance traits from your writing to remove any treat from your writing on . Ultimately your personality. Just stop writing it in the quest for each lesson. At least one of the examples did not have that trait in it. So if you look at that for whatever trait or traits you want to remove as start adapting your writing in that way, you'll be removing the resistance straight. Once you know what it looks like, just stop doing it. For example, the trade of temper This was the answers to the quiz for the trade of temper. The top left example does not short temper. And since the identification for temper is that the T Bar does not cross the T's stamp but stays to the right of it, East them. Any writing where the T bar does cross the seas them, or at least it's not off to the right of a tea stem will remove temper. So if you start a pretty unities across the tea stem, as in that example, we have a circle round. You would be removing temper. We just stop doing whatever they shows us. The indication off it being there As you practice writing in your new way, you'll be very aware of what you're doing, which also means you be very aware any time you're allowed that personality trait to appear in your writing because you're conscious of having it on. That's good, too, because when you're aware of doing it, you could also be aware off stopping doing it. However, you will not have completely affected the change until you find yourself writing in the new way effortlessly and naturally without having to think about it. By that time, it's in your subconscious, and it's part of your personality. It takes a while, but as you're practicing during it and be aware of doing it, you're also agree. As I said, be aware off when it comes into your personality, so you're consciously taking it out of your personality until it becomes a subconscious act .
