Transcripts

1. Talking head with intro slide1: I'm feeling a Macau young and welcome to communication skills. How did you felt? Great communication skills through your handwriting. We're going to look at a lot of traits as we go through this today. I'm going to show you how to put the straits in your writing if they're not already in the writing to make them stronger if you want to. Even though they're there, little bits are hard to remove funds that you probably don't want tohave in your writing For good communication, there's a long list of traits. They can all be added or taken out off your handwriting on. I'm going to show you not only have to do the traits how to identify them, how to Adam, how to remove them. But we're going to go through step by step. Which ones are the best ones? Toe have for effective communication. Now, just some of the traits. If you're very blunt, you tend to put your foot in your mouth. At least that's how we express it. You put your foot in the mouth Every time you talk, you say the wrong thing. There's a trait of actually being diplomatic, and it's a relatively unusual treat to find in handwriting. So it might be a really good one for you to find in yours or toe. Add to yours. Are you evasive? Now that doesn't go down well in communication. If people know you're being evasive, how it more often lying you now that goes. Either way, being too emotional could be too much. But being too cool, common withdrawn can also be too much. And it also depends on what the situation is. Some situations air appropriate, three more emotional than others, and you write able to show where you are normally on the gauge. So if you normally tend to be very emotional, you can be aware to pull back when it's a less emotional situation or vice versa. Are you secretive? Now? There's nothing wrong with having a few secrets. Who wants to blab everything about their life to the whole world? But are the other hands. If people feel that you're holding back that you're being secretive about something, they're not going to take to it very well, and even more so if you occasionally bend the truth to suit yourself? Um, that's something people realize you're doing. They're not going to be too impressed, either. Then let's imagination. People without huge imagination top from the huge imagination. They're not like they just probably exaggerating things of it, because that's how we see it on knowing that's where you're coming from can help you to adapt. But perhaps you want a huge imagination. Perhaps you want to write an awful like you're not coming up with enough ideas. So hey, wouldn't it be great to have a fantastic imagination? You could add it. So that's just a few of the traits that go on and on. There's a whole lot less, and we're going to go through, as I say, toe. Learn how to identify each one, which at the same time allows you. There are Fortress, are adding it to your writing or could start taking out off your writing on what each one means on what effects it has on communication. So you can choose for yourself, which trades so I want which traits do I not want and start working on that. So let's get going 2. Here's why I can help you with this: Here's why. I can help you with this a little about me. So feel free to skip this video if you want. In this short video, I just want to share with you why? I know I can help you both identify the personality traits and you're writing for good communication and why. I know I can also help you add or remove any of them. I've seen a graphologist and a graph of therapists for well over 20 years, and I've also being a personal development and career coach for most of that time, too. A graph or therapists, by the way, is someone who helps her clients to make changes to their lives on their personality by making changes to the writing. And it works amazingly well. So I spent a great many years working with clients doing just exactly what I'm going to show you, how to identify personal strengths and weaknesses from their handwriting and how to change the handwriting to include what you want and remove what you don't want. And what's more, I've done it for myself several times over the years when I've Bean dissatisfied with how I'm doing or what I'm doing and it's worked every time. I fully appreciate that. If this is due to you, it might be difficult to believe that it works. But my hundreds of clients have proved that it works with amazing results. So make this your time. Time for yourself to learn and grow and make your life work the way you want it to go. If you're waiting for the right time, it's now next up, Let's get going with introduction. 3. Introduction: introduction. Communication as we're looking at it here is interpersonal in person communication. In other words, how to talk and listen to other people when you're with them. There are many, many personality traits that influences, and in this course we're going to look at 15 personality traits in eight lessons and how to add or remove them to are from your handwriting on how to identify them in other people's writing to. Here's a list of all the personality traits will cover less than one diplomatic are blunt. Two. Evasive, secretive, untruthful. Three. Talkative on reticence. Four. Emotional expression. Five. Passion or fleeting feelings. Six. Imagination and intuition seven. Empathy and analytical and eight is confidence for each one. You can decide whether you want to add it. Remove it or leave it as it is, and you can also identify the trade in the writing of anyone else. You choose Just by having a good look at the writing in this way, you can improve your own communication skills on and see how to better communicate with other people based on what you find in there writing, and you'll also find it a great help in just understanding both yourself on other people. So let's get started next up. Why handwriting 4. Why it Works: why this works briefly before we get to the actual traits. Here is why this works. Why it's a good idea to adjust your writing to what you want in your personality. If you've already done what in my courses and know this part, please just skip on to the next lesson. Most people will agree that how you feel affects how you act and how your body language appears. Take, for example, someone who's just received very bad news compared with someone who has just received very good news. Usually without much trouble, you will be able to tell which is which, just from their body. Language on the opposite is true, too. Body language affects how we feel. If you're feeling down one day and decide that you're going to go out with a big smile on your face at a good word for everyone you meet, how do you think you'll feel at the end of the day? Probably a whole lot better. That's because your body language of smiling and looking happy has affected how you feel, although I can't imagine why anyone would want to do it if you did the opposite on went around all d being deliberately grumpy and bad tempered, you've probably and your day feeling a great deal worse than when you started it. That, too, would be because your body language had affected how you feel. So take that analogy one step further. If you went to run deliberately smiling and happy over a period of time, eventually it would become the natural, the normal way for you to behave. At that point, this behavior has gone from your conscious mind to your subconscious. Mind your subconscious money takes over all the tasks that have become second nature to you when you reach out your hand to pick up a cup. When you flip a switch to put out the light when you turn, the Siri will in your car to go in the direction you want to go on many thousands more tasks that you do daily. You don't have to stop and think, What do I do to pick up that cup of coffee? Oh yes, I have to reach out my hand to touch the cup, then bend my fingers to grip. That's then move my hand upwards, being careful not to let go off the camp No, you don't do that. Instead, you just think that you'd like to drink some coffee on your subconscious, Takes over the task off. Helping you do that on your subconscious acts in exactly the same way when you deliberately use body language to accomplish something. If we take the analogy off smiling to feel better. Once you subconscious gets the idea that this is how you want things to work, it will have you smile mawr quite naturally without you having to think about it. But how does this apply to handwriting? If you change your handwriting by changing the strokes within the writing, you are changing the body language off your writing. Your subconscious is very good at handwriting analysis. Even if you have never heard of it, it's very good at it, without necessarily knowing that that's what it is. It's very good at it because it your stop conscious is watching the body language involved in your writing. It really doesn't care about how the handwriting actually looks. It only cares about the movement involved in doing it, and it understands what that body language means. If you keep up that body language, meaning that you continue to write in a particular way. Your subconscious gets used to that on decides. That must be how you want to right now. So it makes that task part off what it does. It makes you new way of writing a subconscious act, which means when you write, you will not right to the new way that you have been practicing, even without thinking about it has become part of your self conscious habits, and it's at that moment that you have made a change to your personality. Your subconscious will dark direct you to use the body language related to that writing you have chosen to use. If that righty contains two strokes for higher goals, you'll find that you now have higher goals without having to think about it consciously. If that writing contains spectra communication skills, you will find that you now have better communication skills without having to consciously act in that way. You've now successfully programmed your subconscious at whatever programming you present. There is not part off your normal behavior on the beauty of making changes in this way is that if at a later date you start falling back into your old ways of writing. It will show in your writing before it shows your behavior, so it gives you advanced warning on the chance by practicing writing how you want to write again off getting back to how you want to be before the slip back has been noticed by anyone other than you. So that's her handwriting works to make changes to your personality and your behavior now on to how to make these changes. 5. Are you Diplomatic or Blunt: are you diplomatic or blunt whether you have a tendency to be diplomatic in what you say off, whether you don't mince your words and come out saying exactly what you mean. Both of these things are very easy to see in handwriting, and interestingly enough, both can appear at the same time. Your guests an explanation of that writing sample later on bluntness are just saying things . How you see them without any sugar coating can come across as quite abrupt at times, while at other times it's very necessary skill. Probably it's best to have a mixture off bluntness on non bloodless being blunder very direct shows in writing that has no leading strokes. Writing just begins with the start off the actual letter without flourishes or Carvey strokes at the start. So there's some that has absolutely no initial stroke. It just goes straight into the letter, so that is very blunt. Direct writing that personal say what they think is always where the pen first touches the paper. So there are other places in there that I haven't marked with arrows, the S on hobbies, the sea and include the I and playing the first playing and the U. N. Guitar. So all of these air, where the pen for searches, the paper and arm or examples off bluntness. This is an example off what is not bloodless. The tail itself at the beginning of the DEA, they are doesn't actually mean very much in itself. Ah, it can be all different kinds of flourishes, of which some of them means something. But in what we're looking at, just R for bluntness. Anything that is a stroke before the actual letter just means bluntness does not exists, so that bottom example is not blunt. The upside of being blunt and direct is that this is also the trait of clear thinking on the lack of leading strokes shows you clearing out all the unnecessary information of focusing on what is needed. So there is another very blood pretty on another one. So that, too, would suggest the best idea is toe have a mixture off blunt and not so blunt strokes for best communication. This one has a mixture. The red arrows there are pointing to the blunt where it just goes straight in on the Blue Arrows show, where there isn't leading stroke so that writing has a mixture. Also here, the red Arrows point to blunt direct straight in no leading stroke on the Blue Arrows Point , where there is a lead and stroke, so less blood nous. So obviously, if you have a lot off one and a little of the other, whichever one you have the most soft will be stronger. But in general it means a mixture. Diplomacy shows quite differently from blood nous, which is why both can show in the writing. At the same time, there's a blunt this showing in the Red Arrows, and the two circles are showing. Diplomacy you'll see is both latter EMS and the supplies to an AMP and an end. Actually, whether it's a capital or lower case it, the letter gets smaller as it goes along. So both these EMS start higher and get lower. The M in the word much does not show diploma seasons. It's much the same all the way along, but I am, and most morning definitely show diplomacy. It's also shows where lines of writing get noticeably smaller towards the right and rolling . Mitch Turner is a farmer, Governor general of Canada on Always keep this sample cause the best one I've ever found for diplomacy. It's a signature, of course, but look at the way it goes. It starts speak and it gets smaller and it's got that capitalism, which is the diplomacy em getting smaller. It's goes along. So that's just a beautiful indication off diplomacy and the writing so hard you analyze if both blood nous on diplomacy appear in the same writing. So there's diplomacy. I'm more diplomacy at this bluntness in both of these, the EMS are blunt in both Afi's. This means that someone who at times could be very blunt and direct but could show diplomacy when they consider it important. And if you look at the top example where it says my handwriting, the miles the diplomatic and blunt the H is not Blunt has allegiance drug but the w in writing his front. So that person is definitely mixture. Here's a lesson quiz, which is the writing below, shows bluntness on which shows diplomacy. You can pass a video if you like to a better look on the answers will be on the very next site. So here are the answers. This first example has no leaders, jokes anywhere. So the Red Arrows point to all the direct, blunt, straight to the point, clear thinking strokes that are all the way through this. So this one has no diplomacy whatsoever. It's extremely blunt. This one also is very blunt. All the Red Arrows point to let letters that start with no leading stroke, but it also has diplomacy in the M because that the first bump of the M is much taller than the second. So this writer will generally be very blunt in director straight to the point. But when they realize it's important, they can be very tactful. Now this writing has no blood this because it has leading strokes all the way through. And it has no diplomacy because there's no EMS and ends against smaller so that one has nothing that we're looking for. And the last one is the one you saw in the very first screen, and it has bluntness in that the M and the end both just start with Golden stroke on both Eminent also have diplomacy. We both get smaller aciego so that someone who can be very direct but can also be extremely diplomatic when they want to be next up. How to identify evasiveness, secretiveness and untruthfulness 6. Evasivenss, Secretiveness, Untruthfulness: zap, evasiveness, secretiveness, Andi untruthfulness, thestreet. Things have no part in good communication. If people realize you're doing any of thes three things, they will not relax or feel comfortable with you. Norris. It's a situation of which trust is likely to be established. We all have some things we'd like to keep private. Not being secretive doesn't mean spilling your entire life story every time you meet someone you, but it does mean not hiding relevant information. Be open, be transparent, be genuine, and you'll find your communications flourish. First. We'll start with the evasiveness. When you see a small tight hook is the top of a sea or the start of an A or an O, this congee evasiveness taken further to become a full blown hook. A face of this becomes manipulation, which makes sense as manipulation involves being evasive as to what you're trying to achieve. So there's a hook in the beginning, off to those. So these were both evasive. Secretive is also shows in Circle Letters A oh, and the circle part of D and G. It shows once a look on the right hand site off a circle. There must be no loop on the left, only on the right for it to be secretiveness. So again they're all those. But there's a small loop on the top of each thes air. Small lips. If there were bigger loops, the secrets would be bigger. The size of the loop indicates the size of the secret, but nevertheless, all of the's are secretiveness. Here's some other examples of secretiveness. Now you see, the one there are the word before is a bigger secret than the other two, but they're all secrets are all on the right town site off the loop on their Seymour. They're all on those in our examples. But as I say, that can be a O. D. Or G. When you find loops on both the right and the last site off the circle at the same time, this is untruthfulness or intentional deceit. This person tells lies. How often they lie shows in how often the double loops appear on. By the way, don't expect anyone who writes this way to admit they lie. They won't. Here are examples of untruthfulness or intentional deceit. Now you see the arrows go down to the two O's, and each of them have two loops. In both cases, the loop on the left side is much smaller than the loop on the right side. But that doesn't matter. They have to look. So it's intentional deceit. And there's one that has to lips that are just about the same size. Again, that's intentional deceit. And I put a little box down below to show you, which is which, because we've got two more arrows coming up the blue one points the sea on come, and that is the hook in the circle, and that is evasiveness on the A, although it's usually in a C. But this case that happens being an A. It's the hook that has become manipulated is the hook with a circled on it, So that has been imputation. If you see repeated evidence of these jokes and others writing, be careful how much you trust them. But do be aware that it has to be repeated strokes. One look does not a liar make, and although it doesn't really belong in this lesson, I'm sure some of your asking. So what does it mean? If this salute on the left of a circle letter answer, it means self deceit. The writer is fooling themselves about something, which means if they talk to you about that thing, they will also be filling you, albeit unintentionally. And there's two examples with a loop off the left hand site off a circle letter. If you find any of thes traits in your own writing on, decide you want to remove thumb. Just practice writing with no loops in your circle letters on. Once that becomes your natural way of writing, you'll find that the trait has vanished as well. It generally takes about a month of practice to effect a change in the writing on, then the change in your behavior will appear gradually after that. This is called graphical therapy, and you can do it to remove any trait you want from your writing or toe. Add any treat to want. Here's the lesson quiz. Which of the writing below shows evasiveness, secretiveness on or untruthfulness? You can pause the video if you like to re better look. The answers are on the next flight. There's only one sample of writing for this quiz. So here are the answers. Now I've put the little text down below because it's got to be so many arrows, you'll have trouble keeping Ziva straight if I don't. So, first of all, we've got the red arrows and then point to evasiveness, which is the hook on the left hand side off the circle letter. They're all in one has a bigger hook than the other ones, but they all have the hooks. The blue arrow points this secretiveness on the two in the top line. Just have the loop on the right hand side, the one in one second. Last word has the hook for evasiveness on the left, on the circle for secretiveness on the right, Untruthfulness shows in the word how where the salute on both sides, the look on the right hand side is bigger than look on the left hand side, and generally that's how you find it. But one way the other, it has both looked so it's untruthful. Self deceit shows in the A of handwriting brothers a look only on the left hand side on. Lastly, we have manipulation in the capital, see where it goes down or forms a hook and comes back up. So that person yeah, I don't think you believe an awful lot of what that person told you. Next up balanced your talk, itiveness and reticence 7. Balance your Talkativeness & Reticence: balance your talk, itiveness and reticence. No one wants to try and have a conversation with someone who talks incessantly, allowing no one else a chance to speak. On the other hand, it's not much fun trying to carry on a conversation with someone who never says a word. So for communication to happen, each person has to speak some. And listen some how much off which someone will do shows in writing again. We're looking at the circle letters, but what we're looking for is quite different than what we were looking for in the last lesson. This time, we're looking to see if the circle letters air open or closed circle letters air a hole on the circle, part of D and G all lower case. One point to consider here is that if someone is very nervous, for example, they may be either too talkative are too quiet. We're looking for how the normally are her for not just is stressful situations. The easy way to remember how this train shows is to think off the circle letters as the mouth. When the markets open, the person speaks. When the mouth is closed, the person is quiet so open circle letters indicate talk itiveness. Close circle letters indicate reticence are not talking. It's very normal and desirable to have a mixture of both. What we're looking for is which has more and which has less. So is there more talkative? This are is the more quiet residents are not talking. Shows the example where all the circle letters are firmly closed. And in that example, you'll see there isn't one single circle letter which is open. They're all close, so that's a pretty quiet person. A talkative person is indicated below where more of the circle letters air. Open that close and you'll see these of the open ones. How there's a couple of close ones, So this person's quite chatty, but they don't talk all the time. Here's another example off mixture between talkative on reticence, so the red arrows point the target of this on the blue arrows point to the quiet. Here's a quiz. How much talk itiveness are reticence. Do you see in the writing below? Um, pause the video if you want to have a better look and Susan on the very next site. So looking at this one, they're all close every single one is firmly close. So that is someone who is not talkative in this one. We have opened so that one is very talked. If there's none close to that when they're all open and this one is a mixture, there's more. There's more close than open. But there are two open, talkative ones so that personal sometimes talk, but more often be willing to listen. So that's how you can tell if someone is likely to be talkative or not talkative in relaxed situation, as I mentioned before, if they're nervous or in a stressful situation, that may change. But that's how they are normally. Next up, keep your emotions in check. 8. Keep your Emotions in Check: keep your emotions in check. Keeping your emotions in check refers to behavior, not how you feel to get along with people and communicate effectively. You need to be able to control the display off your emotions and it handwriting that's all related to the slant. They're farther to the right, this land them or you will express your emotions. This could be excellent if you're a public speaker, for example, where your passion will show. It's not so good if you're angry or upset about something or someone on. Let that show to the extreme you see from the arrow that has a far right hand slant to it. So that person's feelings will show no matter what, when the writing is upright, are almost upright. I refer to that as the air traffic controller syndrome because it's a writer who will manage to remain calm on the outside, but not necessarily on the inside. No matter what is happy and you'll see from the arrow there, that one's almost upright all the way through, so that person generally will say cool, calm collected on the outside. No matter what's happening on the inside, this can come across as cold and an environment for warmth. That emotion would be welcome. But it also has its uses not only in the air traffic control, but said many business are difficult situations, and there's another one. This writer again will hold their feelings to themselves. They want to peer, they won't hold them in and Julie, but they won't let them take them over. They'll keep cool, calm and collected a pies, no matter what's going on around them. And lastly, there is the back Cancel int where the writing slants to the left on. This is someone who holds in their feelings when its site just a little bit of holding in. It operates much the same as the upright slant. But while this extreme is obvious to others that this person is holding so much inside and people tend to feel a bit uncomfortable when you think you're holding things back. So there's two examples there, off a left hand, a backhand slough out, and that's someone who, if you're talking to, are relating to it, feels a sort deliberately holding stuff inside on. Why it's uncomfortable about that is you know they're holding something inside, but you don't know what it is, so it just it just makes conversation and communication a bit more difficult. It's not uncommon to have different slants as it shows you're more emotional at some times than others. However, a mixture of slants within one word or sentence or even a page of writing that song all at one time is an indication of active control emotions. So look at all the hours for that. They're all over the place, their backhand there upright. They're far words. That person is just all over the place, one minute their emotional. The next minute they're holding it back is difficult to gauge how that person is going to be if you have a variety of science white time. If you're writing a letter to a friend, you're mildly emotional. So you've got a slight right hand slant. You're writing a ah, a grocery list for yourself. Well, you're not really relating to everybody, so it's got a little bit of a left hand slap that's fine. So variation and different times depending how emotional your showing at that moment is fine. But to have it all within one piece of writing like this is not a very healthy way to be. And just to answer your question, I'm often asked. No left handers do not right for the backhand slap more often than right handers. Sorry, but that is a complete myth. The most universally successful slant for communication is a slight right hand slant. It shows someone who will show warmth or relate emotionally to others, but not to an extreme. So there are two examples of a slight to write town slam that's the best one for communication and guessing, along with other people. Of course, communication from the stage or a pulpit, or even in parlance, is often more successful if it's overflowing with passion. But a day to day life less is more so. There is one with quite a far right slant, so that person be pretty good at talking on stage or making public doing public speaking crucitti motion, which showed not overly overly much. But it would definitely be showing lesson quiz, who is more likely to show their feelings. You can pause the video if you like to have a better look. The ad Susie are the next site. So who is more likely to show their feelings. This writing example has a definite back can slant. This one has quite a far right hand slumped, and this one is not quite upright. It's just slightly backhand and says the right hand slant shows how much someone will show their feelings. The one in the top right? He's obviously the one who will show their feelings the most Next up passion are fleeting feelings. 9. Passion or Fleeting Feelings: deep passion or fleeting feelings. In the last session, we looked at the slant of the writing and how it shows how expressive off your feelings you will be. Here. We'll look at how long lasting your feelings will be, because that makes a big difference how other people respond or react to you. Think of two people having a disagreement. Both get Matt and show it. Words were exchanged, and they part when the next beat person A is still mad and shows it. Person B, however, has let it go, and it's not quite prepared to restore relationships with person. A. How do you think that will play out? However it happens, it probably won't work well, because Person a who is still Matt is likely to interpret Person B's return to good humor as meaning. They don't care that the disagreement didn't mean anything to them on this bakes person. A not only say, Matt, but now they have added another grievance. That person be doesn't care and Person b, who started this they quite happy. Having let bygones be bygones now finds him or herself confronted by person a still blazing that person B's good humor disappears pretty fast. They think person is bad. Temper means they're carrying a grudge. They start to think back over the disagreement. Perhaps they decide that if anyone is going to carry a crunch, it should be them. Because as far as they're concerned, the person in the wrong in the first place was person A. It may not playing out exactly like that, of course, but you get the idea. If one person's carries a grudge or just can't get over emotional upsets on the other person is inclined to just let things go. It can result in major miscommunication. The solution is for these two to talk over on. Explain how they feel. Person A is still upset because they care so much on Person. B started today not upset anymore because restoring good relationships with person A was so important to them that they just let the disagreement go and try to start from a positive perspective. Person A and B can be easily identified from their handwriting on there is a potential person see who's in the middle, and neither as extreme as a or B. Here's how to identify which you are on which anyone else's, too. If you can see the writing, how deeply you take things to heart shows how, how heavily you press on the paper when you write, the heavier the writing. The deeper emotions impressed themselves on you on the deeper the impression the longer it takes for it to go away. In some extreme cases, it may never disappear on that. As you see, there is very heavy writing, so that person has pressed heavily on the page to create that writing. How much the heavy writer will express their feelings depends on their slant. A fire right slant will express it very much, and outright or backhanded Sands will not. But either way is made a deep impression on the writer, which will not go away for quite some time. The light line writer, on the other hand, is someone who may respond very extremely to an emotional event. If the writing has a far right slant, but they'll quickly get over it and become calmer, it doesn't mean they don't care. It just means they respond that let things go, and that is light rating, and it has a slight right slant, so that person will show their feelings a bit, but not overly much. But either way, when regardless of the slant, if it's light writing, it means they're going over it fast. The problem occurs when one light school, really fast on the other is still upset. I understand they were. The other person is on this scale as well as where you are can help you get along with other people who have very different degrees off impression ability meeting Who will retain or let go their feelings at different rates. Widely different. Slant on heaviness in writing is one of the things that can make communication difficult. But if you check the writing and talk about it, if the occasion requires the's air differences, that can be mainly overcome, since understanding where the other person is coming from can make a huge difference to how you get along. Even if no one makes any changes toe how they respond, Here's the lesson quiz. Who is more likely to hang on to their feelings? You can pass the video if you like to have a better look on the answer user on the next slight. So here are the answers to the quiz. The 1st 1 is pretty heavy writing. There's been quite a bit of pressure put in there. So, yes, that person will hang on to their feelings. They won't show their feelings an awful lot because it's quite upright writing but feels very gradual. Hang onto for a long time now. This person is going to show their feelings more because it's further right sound. But they're not going to hang onto. The quite Islam is still reasonably long. It's still pretty firm writing, but they won't hang onto as long as the one on the left. So that was got a dotted circle. It's semi along, and this one won't show their feelings a whole lot. And they won't hang on some either, because it's quite like writing so that one will not hang on to their feelings. So the top left is the person who will hang on to their feelings the longest next up imagination and intuition 10. Imagination & Intuition: imagination and intuition. Imagination and intuition are two different things, but they do have something in common. They both results in new ideas, and they both are easy to identify In handwriting, Imagination comes from your mind. It comes from inside your head on. Often it's a creative version off something you already know or a derivative off something with which you are familiar. Intuition, on the other hand, seems to come from nowhere is just a quick gut feeling on all of a sudden you just know something you didn't know before on idea. An inspiration, a direction, a strong sense off what to do. Intuition is much more mysterious and imagination, but the result is not too similar in that a new idea is born with either. Here's how to identify both imagination and intuition from handwriting. We'll start first with imagination. Imagination can be divided into two types on each show's differently in the writing. First, we'll look at abstract imagination so you see loops, upper loops. That's the ability to come up with a brand new ideas on. It shows in the upper lips off the F, H, K and L. You'll see quite a few of thumb there. The writing on the right is Thomas. Ever since rating the bigger the loops, the stronger the imagination. So this writing has pretty strong imaginations. Got huge looks, then this material imagination on that sea ability to take an idea, whether it's your own or somebody else's on make it happen. And this shows the lower loops on F G. Why and J. So there's some lower loops here. The one in part is much, much narrower, but it's still a loop, and there's two quite big ones there and again, the bigger the loop was stronger the imagination. So there's a heck of an imagination on there's good imagination as well, so imagination shows in loops. B, F, H K and L show upper looks for abstract imagination, which is coming up with the original idea on F G Y and J Show Laura Lutes for Material or practical imagination, which is working out how to successfully put the ideas into action many writers have both on usually one is stronger than the other on many writers of one and not the other. But any lips on these letters show imagination, and there's the loops on Elle's now you'll notice there only on the l's. The look on the B is more or less clothes. There's none on the two. H is in the second last line, so there is abstract imagination, but it's not. It doesn't appear every time it could, whereas the material imagination, the lower loops is appearing every time it can. So this person actually has stronger material imagination than they have abstract imagination. And in this one, every upper possible Luke is a loop, and every lower possible loop is a looked, so this person has strong imagination. The upper lips are actually slightly larger, so this person has slightly stronger abstract imagination. But they're pretty good on both. Upper lips on the T and D are not imagination, so those two are not imagination on the ones on the tees again, not imagination. On the lower loops on the P and Q are also not imagination, so abstract imagination does not show in a d. N. A. T on material imagination does not show in a p or a que no onto intuition. Intuition shows in gaps between latter's within script. That means that printing, which is writing where each letter is with separately, not touching each other cannot show intuition, so that's printing. None of these letters touch each other, so that does not show intuition. Intuition can only appear in script on Did What We Call Prince Script on Prince script is where many lecturers air written individually as imprinting, but some letters are joined together as in script, so it's a mixture off printing and script. Hence its name off Prince script. Look for gaps. Since groups on this includes print script on the morgue, APS you find the stronger the intuition. Therefore, people who write in Prince script have very strong intuition, and this is an example of Prince script, and you'll see there's quite a few gaps between the letters, although some of them are star joined together. So that's Prince script on its strong intuition. But many people who write it what most people would recognize justice being script also show intuition. And here's the example. This just looks like script, but if you look carefully, there's quite a few gaps between the letters. So this person is writing a script but showing intuition. And here's another example off script showing intuition. So it doesn't matter whether you choose to call it script our Prince script. That's not important. The point is that some letters air joined, some aren't on. The more gaps there are between the letters, the stronger the intuition. Here's a lesson quiz who shows more imagination and who shows more intuition in positive video, if you like on the answers will be on the next to slights. One for imagination on one. For intuition, ancestor Lesson quiz. Who shows more imagination? This right? Each was quite a bit off material imagination. There is some abstract imagination than the l of also, but it's very small and there's nothing else, so it doesn't really count for much. But the writing definitely does have material imagination. This writing has no opera looks and no lower lips, so there's absolutely no imagination their exact that teeny weeny look on the age, which again isn't enough to really count for anything. So no imagination in that one. This one. Hannah's upper loops Andi Laura loops, so it has both abstract and material imagination, and it has bigger lips, so it has stronger imagination than the top left. And as we said that the top right hand. One has no imagination showing at all. So now let's look at who has more intuition and remember both intuition and imagination involved coming up with ideas. So the outcome is is very similar, So this one had a lot of imagination, but there are no gaps within the letters at all, so it has absolutely no intuition, and this one had absolutely no imagination. But look at all the gaps between the letters, this masses of thumb. I haven't put the hours to the middle line just because it would be cluttered. But there are gaps there, too, so this has very, very strong intuition. The Blue Arrows just show where the letters are actually joined, so you know it's not printing, but that's very strong intuition. And this one has imagination as we saw, and it also has some intuition, so that has both. The intrusion isn't really strong, but it also has some imagination. So look for both on kind of a mixture of intuition and imagination, kind of one or the other, or it could conceivably have neither. Next up empathy are analytical 11. Empathy or Analytical: empathy are analytical, empathetic or analytical. You can be both, but which will come across more strongly on which is more desirable at any given time. Being empathetic is wonderful. You feel for other people you respond to their feelings on, they feel hurt. But empathy is only appropriate in some situations. In a purely business situation, Probably be analytical would be more appreciated, since in many business situations, feelings are not greeted very fondly on business. People usually prefer business feelings, which bees, alan school or business like Most of us, however, do not spend our entire lives in either business or personal situations. We spend our lives in a mixture of both. So being able to people empathetic ons, analytical each at the appropriate time is the best way to go. Empathy shows in handwriting, where the connecting strokes along the baseline off the writing are soft. You shapes not sharp points and see where all the arrows pointer. It's all occur for you at the base. There's no sharp V formations at all, so that writing is very empathetic. When the strokes along the baseline are sharp V points. The trade of analytical is in evidence, so you see this one has lots of really sharp V shaped points along the base, so that person is very analytical. There are no empathetic was there at all for communication. For most people, a mixture off the two is ideal as it shows someone who could be cool and analytical when required. Because she was softer, more empathetic. Site at other times on the Blue IRA showed the analytical on the Red Arrows show the empathy. So the blue showing analytical are pointing to sharp V formations at the baseline on the red, which is empathy. Points too soft. You shapes curves at the baseline. Here's the last thing quiz who shows analytical ability on who shows empathy. You can pass the video if you like to have a better look, and the answers are on the next site. Answers to lessen Quiz, who shows analytical ability and who shows empathy. So this one very much so, is all analytical. It's all sharp V shaped shapes right along the baseline is not a soft, curvy one in sight, so very analytical. This one, on the other hand, is very empathetic, is all the soft you shapes along the baseline there are no sharp three points at all, so that one's very empathetic. So they're the analytical ones there. The sharp V formations on their other curvy use, so the U formations are empathetic. The sharp V formations are analysts co. So that one is very much a mixture off both next up confidence. 12. Confidence: confidence it may seem missile confidence is just what you feel and should really affect how others communicate with you. But it does matter. Ah, whole lot. Other people tend to show more respect for people who have confidence on they feel more comfortable with. Um so easier Communication happens. Confidence shows in writing in two ways in the size of the personal pronoun I the PP i Andi in the size off the signature. Of course, that means just confidence, not overconfidence, which is not a positive trait. If the p p I is slightly larger than the rest of the writing, thank confidence is present and you see there that capsule I is bigger than the capital are so that showing good confidence. And in this one there's no other electricity Compare it with. But you can see both eyes, both the personal pronouns. I are definitely a very good size. So confidence is showing in both these examples. If the signature is slightly larger than the rest of the writing, they confidence is also present. Now you see with the lines there that the signature is obviously a good big bigger than writing above it. And that's actually is William Shatner of Star Trek. That's his signature, and you'll see here I've only up with the lines over the lower case because the two eyes Air Parcel Pro knows, so they should be a good size. But you can see that the lower case writing itself is larger so that signature is larger than the rest of the writing. So that also shows good confidence if his presence of both the Parcel Pro Line I on the signature than the confidence is even more evident. But the key word is slightly. If either the PP I are the signature is a great deal larger than the rest of the writing than the writer has an overblown sense of self. They are an egotist. And here's the lesson quiz. This is part one of the quiz who shows more confidence in their P p I. You can passivity if you want to. A better look at the ad suitor on the next flight aunt. Here are the answers. The capsule I in that one is a pretty good size. It's is solid, this one, the Capitol eyes about the same size as the rest of the writing. It's not particularly large, and in this one that capitalize actually pretty small. So the one with more confidence, the largest Pierre P. P. I. Is the one in the top left. And here's the lesson quiz, Part two. Who shows more confidence in their signature again? You composite video if you want of a better look on the answers here on the next slide. So here are the answers. Who shows more confidence in their signature? Well, this writing and the signature are really just about the same size. The right see here is a lot smaller than the signature. I'm only marking the lower case, but the upper case shows the same thing, and here we have the signature is actually slightly smaller than the rest of the writing. So the one who shows more confidence is the one with the larger signature in the top, right next up, wrapping it all up 13. Wrapping it all up: rapping is all up on a bonus quiz. Here's a list of all the personality traits you have learned in this course. Diplomatic or blunt, evasive secrets of this untruthful, talkative reticence, emotional expression, passion or fleeting feelings. Imagination on intuition, empathy and analytical and confidence. By adding or removing these traits from your writing, you can improve your communication skills tremendously. And if you watch them in other people's writing, you will find it easier to communicate with them because you will better understand where they're coming from. Communication skills help you socially, and they also help you in just about any workplace environment to so choose what you want to improve at practices. Strokes involved. Here's the bonus quiz for you to test so junior skills. Which of the traits covered in this course do you see in the following writing sample? Here's the list again to remind you, and it'll just sit there so you can look at it as you look at the writing sample on DSI. How many traits you can identify. Suppose the video. If you want a forest, long as you like to identify the traits on, the answers will be on all the next batch of sonnets so diplomatic are blunt. All the hours point to where there were no leading strokes. There's no leading stocks anywhere in this entire piece of writing. This may be a hint of one in the world lately at the end, but I think it's just, you know, a blotches. It goes in. It's not really a leading stroke, so this is a very blunt writer. This writer will be direct straight to the point, as shown no diplomacy whatsoever. Evasive, secretive or untruthful, the arrows are pointed secretiveness, which is a look on the right hand side of the circle. Evasive is a loop on the left hand side, and there were none there on Untruthful is where their lips on both sides at once on there's none there. So this this writer is secretive. They'll share what they want to share and keep other things very much to themselves. Talkative and ref isn't so. All the circle letters are tightly closed, so this person is inclined to be quiet unless you have something important to say. It's a sign of a really good listener, emotional expression, and that's a slant. This writer will show their feelings moderately appear warm and caring but no overly emotional because it's got a right town slam, but not a really strong right transplant, passion or fleeting feelings. The writing is written with very heavy pressure on the page. That's why it's all black on This shows a writer who takes things very much to heart. I would take a long time to let go of anything that affected their feelings. So no arrows there is just the whole writing is very heavy and very black imagination on intuition. There are three lower Lopes pointed to by the Red Arrows on. This shows some practical imagination, the ability to take an idea and make it work. There's only one small upper loop that's the Blue Arrow for abstract imagination, which is coming up with ideas, and there are no gaps between the latter's within words at all, said no. Intuition is showing empathy and analytical empathy shows where the blue arrows point to the rounded you shapes at the base. An analytical ability is shown by the red arrows who are pointed. V shapes are at the baseline, so this writer could show both empathy and be analytical as appropriate confidence. There is those signature here, so confidence can only show in the personal pronoun. I is quite small, so no particular degree of confidence is showing. How did you do with that last quiz? When you first look at a piece of writing, it's normal to think you can't get much argument. I still do that. But once you get into it looking for specific strokes, you will find out much more than you ever expected. So try it with your own writing so you can make any changes you wish and try it with other people's writing so you can understand and communicate more effectively with them.
