It can also help you greatly in understanding others social behavior. Someone you thought didn't like you could just be someone who cannot easily show an emotional warmth. Why does someone always leave early, for example. These questions can all be answered by looking at their writing.


1. 1 introduction complete: I'm feeling Makhaya on. Welcome to how social are you? I'm going to take it to looking at handwriting to identify how social, some two years in different ways, how much they'll want to spend, how much time they want to spend with other people. And also, however, you will respond to others when you're with them. There were quizzes. There are illustrations. There are explanations. Take you through it, step by step on. At the end of it, you will know how social you are at. Understand your own behavior better. Perhaps you also have the ability to find out that's about other people, because get along with people is all about understanding them. And if you can understand why someone perhaps isn't a social as you would like them to be or by someone is maybe mawr emotional than you expect them to be. Whatever thes different things can all be identified from the writing on. Once you know it's in your writing or their writing, it helps you to understand that person so much better. So let's get on with how social are 2. 2 Who will you hang out with: How sociable are you? Your head ready? We'll tell. We all socialized to some extent. Some of the time, sometimes work or even family situations can require us to socialize in ways that are not natural to us. Here's a way to see your natural social behavior as we go through the traits. Know that if you have one you don't want or you don't have one, you do want you can change. There's more information on this at the end of the course, it's called Grateful Therapy Section one. Who will you hang out with? All the traits mentioned in this section of the course show in the lower extenders, which are the tails on the lower case J. Why F and G First off is a quiz for you to identify your lower extenders. You could also be identifying them from the writing of someone else if you prefer, so have in front of you a piece of writing with several lower extenders. The letters Q and P are not included, as the Q is traditionally written in a different way. Onda loop on the P has a different, unique meaning, so just ignore any peas are accused that you have in the writing, although in general handwriting analysis is works with both printing on script, this specific section on Lee works really well with script. So even if you normally print, try writing a few sentences in script and then go on to the rest of his course. So script it's letters joined up, printing his nor letters joined up. So this style of your script doesn't matter just long is at least some off. The letters are joined together. They don't all need to be joined together, but some of them have to be as well aside, undefined your own sociability rating. The other obvious benefit off knowing how to identify sociability is that it helps you in understanding others on their social style. There are just five questions in the quiz. Question Number one. Do your lower extenders just go down, forming a sick like stroke and and there with no loop, for example, Fair. It just goes straight down and it ends and there's another one there. There's one Arab, but they're actually three sticks. It doesn't matter how long they are for this. It's just the fact that goes down, and it stays down. This is the loner. Depending upon the requirements of life, this person may socialize frequently. Andi enjoy it, but they also need quite a bit of time on their own. After this, he's spending time with others. The loner needs time away from everyone to recharge his or her batteries again. Question number two. Do your lower extenders have a very slim loop coming back up to or near the base life, so you'll notice the loop. The width of the loop is narrower than the with off the main part of the letter, so that's what we're looking for. It is in both of these, and again it is in these. The P doesn't count. API has a different meaning. So all of the's have very narrow loops. Are yours like that? If so, you are selective in your choice of friends. As a selective writer, you will choose friends who have common interests to you. This may seem obvious, and you may think it. Everyone does that on. We do, of course, to some extent, but a selective writer will have very little interest in those who do not fit into the select. Their selective areas of interest. Question number three Are there small, tight knots at the bottom of your lower extenders. So you see on, well, it's all G's, actually, Arthur's one wide, all the rest through cheese they've all got instead of a proper loop. They do have a sort of a loop, but it's just a little tight, not at the bottom. It doesn't go right up to the baseline, so I think a little tight. Not like that. Do you have those? Then you are clannish, sticking mostly with family or a family of friends. This is an indication off clannish nous. The person by preference socializes with family. If there's no blood family around, they'll farm their own tight knit family of friends on by preference, say, within that small group. Question number four. Do you have large wide loops on your lower extenders? You'll see those two. There are extremely white compared with the width of the actual, the main part of the left of the top part. I like em there. I've only foot one arrow, but there were three of them. If so, you enjoy a wide range of social contacts on the physical last sight of life in general. This is it is our for a variety. You have a wide assortment of friends and family and you will enjoy their diversity. Do you have extremely long Lorik senders? You'll notice those to the top. Part of the letter is very small compared with the length off the Lorik sender, so they have very long lower extenders on again. There in James, if you have very long lower extenders, this is a desire for change. You enjoy change in your social connections, your calendar in your material world. In general, you just like things to be constantly changing. It may be a constant that you just enjoy change all the time. Or it may be temporary that just know you're in a situation or face where you're seeking change. The desire for change can appear along with any of the other four options previously mentioned 3. 3 who will you hang out with Quiz: Here's a quick quiz on lower extenders, which off the five traits just covered Do you see in the writing below on a reminder of what they are? They're loner, clannish, selective, changed on variety. Soon parts of video. If you like to have a better look on the answers air on the next site, I'm moving on to the next side now. So pause the video. If you want to watch this for longer. To hear the answers to the quick quiz on, you'll see the five traits I've got in different colors, and that's the color that the arrows will be for each. So in this one, there's definitely a loner. The lower extenders go down and stay down. Some of them are longer, some of ever shorter doesn't matter. They go down and stay down. No loops It all. This is a loner, this one, the loops that does have loops, whether all very narrow. Even the one in analysis, which is the whitest of the lot, is much narrower than the upper part of the y. So this person is selective, and that's the only one showing him about one. Here we have change. We have long. The damn strokes are very long. The Lorik senders are very long, so that still has change on. You've probably also notice the other one, which is clannish. The blue is clannish on. This person is definitely clannish. So this one shows to it Sure has changed, and it shows clannish the last one. We're obviously pointing to the Lord look, So they've got to hear there's two or three loops was two different traits showing there's changed on this variety. So change is the length of the loops or very long a variety is the fact that the loops air very white. So this person likes change on variety. How did you do with that? So now that you know what the various lower extenders mean, we'll move on to Section two on. We'll look at the slant off the writing. 4. 4 How connected will you be: Section two. How connected will you be? Whether you like to be with people is one thing, But how responsive are you to others? Will he feel you're connecting with, um, or will they feel your reserved? I'm withdrawn here. We're looking at social behavior. Obviously, some business situations require different degrees off reserve or formality. The degree to which you connect with people on an emotional level shows in the slant off the writing. So the blue and I'd is the baseline and red arrows point. This sounds so there's a back can slant goes backwards out bright straight up and down on right hand slants, obviously, over to the right. So which way were you writing? Slant started with upright writing that doesn't notice Lee slant to the right or to the left. This is what I call the air traffic controller sent, meaning that this person can keep their cool in almost any situation. So there's writing that's pretty upright. They may well, this kind of writer may well fall to bits after crisis is over, but they say calm and in control when it's needed. Thea Pride writer is poised, cool and generally level headed. This is good, but it also means that they don't really show their feelings. They'll come across a subjective, a logical, and there's another example off our priority. Don't respect the upright writing to shore their feelings most of the time. They may, however, have occasional emotional explosions. If you think of putting a part of water on the stove with a tight fitting lid as the water heats up at the pressure off the steam gross, eventually the little blast off. This is how the emotional outbursts and liable toe happen with the upright writer. They don't show their feelings for ages and ages, but tension, maybe building. If so, sooner or later the pressure will be too much on their let it all out in a rush. It's not temper, although it may sometimes seem that way. It's just that they have so much emotion, all locked up in sight that they need to let it out. The next land we'll look at is the back can slammed. The writer who writes with the left hand slams tends to hold themselves back from expressing their emotions, and there is a mild backhand slant that writer will definitely hold themselves back from letting their feelings show at one point in their life, perhaps even when they were extremely young. It was intentional. But now is the subconscious act. The farther to the left this land, the stronger this trait is on, the more easily it can be seen in the righteous general behaviour. So here's a pretty far back hand slant this personal definitely holder feelings in very noticeably. You'll just get the feeling that they're just You just can't get to know them properly because they're holding stuff in all the time. As with the upright writer, don't expect to see or hear much emotion from the left town writer, or at least on topics that they hold any emotional punch for them. They won't allow themselves to be so exposed and that some milder back can slap there temper. Of course, it's a great emotional exposer. If any writer with any slant shows temporary the writing when they lose it, emotions will run free for us long as they're out of control. So we're not looking at temper in this. We're just looking at natural way off, showing emotion or not showing emotion. A rice slight right transplants means that the writer will be warm and friendly, but not overly so. They will show sympathy or empathy, but only to a limited extent, as there aren't comfortable with extreme emotion. So there's writing with a slight right hand sent the farther to the right, this land them or emotion the writer will show. So there is a moderate right hand slants, and there's a more exaggerated right hand son. Once the writing is almost horizontal, this shows complete submission to emotion where control and objectivity are gone. This is very unusual to see. Here's a signature off Napoleon in defeat. See how far to the right the slant goes, and it's a very slant within one word. Both of these things show that emotion is out of control. Next up, a quiz on sent 5. 5 How connected will you be Quiz: Here's a quick quiz for slant. How would you describe the slant off each of the writing examples below you? Impassive video. If you like to have a better look, the answers air coming up on the next site. I'm going to move on to the next side now. So if you want to look at the examples for longer policy video, so here are the answers to the Chris First Plant. How would you describe the scent of each of the righty samples below? So, looking at the 1st 1 it has a moderate right hand sent. It's not just a slight slant, and it's not an extreme South. It's moderate is in the middle, so this person will show their feelings moderately. They'll be warm. You'll be able to relate to them emotionally because their feelings will show. The 2nd 1 has a very upright slant, so this person is poised, cool, calm and collected most of the time when they don't lose their cool because everything's built up too much. Most the time. This personal, Be cool, be difficult to connect. On an emotional level, you can probably connect for easily on a friendship level without emotion, you know, just talking about things, etcetera. But if it's going to be from the heart, who is going to be emotional? This person is a hard time with that. This writer has a slight backhand slant, so they're slightly pulling themselves in. You may be able to feel it. It's not really strong. If it was really strong, you could just feel it if you're talking to that person. But this person will definitely not show their feelings. They'll hold them in quite deliberately. It may be subconscious now, but at some point it was conscious toe. Hold the feelings back, and here's another right transplant. So again, someone who will show their feelings you were able to relate on an emotional level to that person. So how did you do so how all this relates to sociability is people who others can feel is holding back tender of trouble, putting out enough to relate to others, at least where close friendships are concerned. Whereas those who shall warmth and enthusiasm, but not so much as it south of control will have unease. Easier time of it. So when you team up the lower extenders with the slant, you can really tell a great deal about how Eddie Writer will get along with others socially or at work. We'll look at both the Lorik senders on the slam together on identify both for each example in the next section. 6. 6 Putting it all together introduction: Section three, Putting it All together. All traits affect each other, so this is just a snapshot. Many other things in the personality may hide or camouflage this natural inclination. You can probably feel it's right this when you consider yourself. But it may not be so obvious when you observe others, especially those you know through work or business. Social made me think of parties, which got me around to thinking about the different types of parties that different writers would enjoy. So let's take a look at those the most common type of party where people just mingle and chat. It's a great enjoyment to some on torture for others, but whether you're aware of it or not, social gatherings are not so easy for everyone. Many people enjoy one on one or just a few people at a time to socialize with and steer clear of anything that's called a party. Some people can be very comfortable socializing with people they know well, no matter what their backgrounds, just the fact that they're familiar faces makes it easy to mingle. However, often these same people will be very uncomfortable in larger gatherings on drift only towards those that they already know. Rather than take the opportunity to meet your people next, we'll take a look at what types of party goer each offer writers is. 7. 7 Putting it all together: this writer with large lower loops and you'll see them there. They are very large, especially the one on my and myself of the first line. This person with the large lower loops enjoys people in general on were thoroughly enjoy the chance to go around and chat with whom ever is there. Whether be friends and family are total strangers. This concept of socializing is perfectly suited to them on them to it. However, since this writing is almost upright, this writer was socialized in a cool manner. Friends A yes, but not emotionally engaged people who are selective in their choice of friends and their selective again the very narrow loops seldom very trusted in small talk, they don't mind who you are, whether they know you are not. If they discover a common interest with you, they could chat you for hours at enjoy the experience immensely, and this writer will get bored faster than some. Since the writing has a site left hand slant here, she will hold back, be reserved and not really enter into the spirit off partying. The cleanliness writer, as we've already covered, will sick with their small group off family or friends on there again. It's a clannish, not at the bottom off The Lord extenders. However, this clannish writer has a definite right hand slant, so they will be warm and easy to relate to. If you're one of those in their clan, on will probably be warm and easy to relate to, even if you're not in their plan. But it will only be temporary seeing for the longer term and their chosen small group, the Loughner will do a bit of socializing, if absolutely necessary. If it comes as part of the work are they become used to it through work, they may do a very good job of it, and there's the law order with the tails. It just go down the straight line. It's stay there. However, they can only joy, a limited about to social time and much prefer to have time on their own, or at least with just water to compatible others. This is something to watch for because, especially in a work situation, the's loners can come across this real socialize. But it's just a learned response. They really prefer more time alone. And when we look at this Lorna's writing, it's an upright sound. So not only will this writer thes lots of time alone, but they won't be emotionally engaged, even when they are with others. Next, we'll look at games and how the various writers are likely to respond to party games. 8. 8 Social Games: games of many kinds are a good idea for social events because they tend to give the opportunity to each type to behave in their preferred style. First, there is a gave player who makes a great deal of noise comments on everything everyone else does encourage it in comments from the sidelines that is generally involved throughout. Now they've got long Laure extenders and big loop. So change a variety. They like different things happening. This is a social type. This social writer also has a moderate right hand sand, so they will not only enjoy being around people, they'll relate well to others, and in turn, others will probably relate well to them, too. So that's combining the long, large lower loops and the right hand sent. The less social player complete. His or her part has required, but be more quiet, withdrawn at other times, recharging batteries as sicko. Some games give you the chance to sit. Between two people are stands between two people. So this selective, which is the lore, the narrow lower looks on the clannish, which is the tight not on the bottom, off the step off the Lorik senders. So the selective and the clannish players can choose where to sit or sand to suit this trait. They're likely to be well involved with their immediate circle. But less so with a larger group is ah, hole, so those it doesn't matter. The slant here were just looking at the looks, so the narrow loops are the little knots on the bottom, Selective in clannish, they prefer just to say with a small group, even when they're playing a game, notice that this selective writer has quite a far right slant, so emotion and feeling will go into their connections with others. And if the game can have an emotional component, they will gets involved in that. The clannish writer, however, has a definite left hand slant, so probably be very obvious to others in the game that they're not really involved. So there were taking the clannish and the selective, both of of like, small groups. But the one with the right hand slant will get emotionally involved in whatever it is they're doing in their smaller group, where it's a clannish personal, though comfortable in the smaller group will not sort of they will get. He mostly evolved, and you could always feel that someone is sort of holding back. You can like the well enough, but you only get so much from someone who has a left hand sent. The loner may well play along well enough, but it's a sure bet that if the party continues too long, they will be the first to find some reason to leave. And again, the Lord straight six down, and it doesn't matter how long they are. The ones and yesterday are pretty long, the ones in validity and there are pretty short. The length is not important. It's just the fact that it goes down and it stays down, and these are all wise. But it's G. Why Jnf, the loner who's writing is on the left below, not only likes to be on the old agreed deal, they also keep themselves very much to themselves as shown in the left hand slant. The writer on the right, although also a loner, shows about right hand sons so will engage with others when they're there. Coming up next, one final quiz on sociability 9. 9 Putting it all together Quiz: Here's a quick quiz for you. Who is the most social off the writers here who is a loner in the group who enjoys change the most on who will get engaged emotionally. You can pass the video if you like to get a better look, and the answers are on the next site. Here are the answers to the quick quiz who is the most social off the writers here, and that will be in red, who is a loner in the group and that will be in blue. Who enjoys change The most will be in green on who will get engaged emotionally will be in purple, So looking at the left hand example. First, the green arrows point to change. The Lorik senders are very long. That's for change. They're not white, so there's no social. If they're large, lips would be social, but it's not on. The slant is slightly right hand, so they will get emotionally engaged to some extent. The other one loner. They're not a loner because they do have looks, so the length of the lower extenders shows them as wanting change on the right hands. Land shows him getting emotionally involved the one on the right here has large loops on the Lorik senders. If you look at the circle off the G in handwriting and comparative with the for loop the loop ISS so much whiter than the G on the lip, otherwise also wider. So this person definitely likes to be social. They like to be around people. They also want change the enjoy variety because the Lorik senders air vory long. So both change and variety, which means a problem like all different types of people. And they also have quite a far right slant, so they're very social, so this person is not a loner, but they're very social. The enjoy both change on getting engaged in mostly variety and change on the last one. Here is a loner, the Lorik Sanders Air. Just six. It go down and stay down. So this is a loader. The slant is upright so they won't get engaged. Emotionally. There are no looks that so. They can't be social and they're not long, so they don't go for change. So this person really only qualifies as a loner. How did you do? It's perfectly possible to be a mixture off types, in which case you're writing will show some Lorik Sanders of one kind as some off another. It just means that you will feel and behave differently. Is social situations at different times, which is pretty normal for a lot of people. If you're Lorig, senders are neither long nor short with average with loops. Then you enjoy socializing to a moderate extent on will participate also to a moderate extent there is still right. There is no wrong. Whatever fits for you is perfect on. By fighting other Sumer to yourself, you will find your social life becomes quite naturally to your liking. Coming up next graph for therapy and how it's could work for you. 10. 10 Graphotherapy & Conclusion: how to make the changes you want. You can change your writing, which in turn will change your behavior on how you feel. This is called Graph Oh Therapy Graph four Therapy Involves is changing your writing until the new way becomes your natural way off writing by that time, when you no longer have to concentrate on the writing in the new way because it's happening without you thinking about it. By that time, the new traits are already starting to appear in your personality. If that sounds unrealistic to you, just think of feeling down and depressed and going for a walk in the woods or by the water or somewhere you love and coming back feeling happier? What happens then, is that what you're doing is affecting how you feel your body language going for a walk. Getting exercise is changing your feelings on. The change continues to affect you. Even after the walk. It's finished. Graph of therapy works in exactly the same way on your handwriting is body language on. By changing your body language, you can change how you feel and how you act, but you have to keep practicing until the new strokes become your natural way off writing. Otherwise, you only get the benefit when you're actually concentrating on practicing on the writing. So now you know how to identify sociability in your own or other people's writing, and you know how to make changes if you want to do so. Congratulations are completing this course.
