Excerts from Readings
© 2017 by HWA.ORG
Here are some more excerpts of what we've recently written to people who have requested a Personal Reading from HWA.ORG. Most identifying names, etc. are shown here XXXXXX'd out, but you get the basic idea. In a typical reading you'd see an opening paragraph, then a couple pages of personal reflection in paragraph form like this, in a sort of off-the-cuff discussion of your personality portrait.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
						
And on the other side of the coin: as for your sense of humor, you've likely quite a beautiful laugh, and a nice smile. Your willingness to listen to other people includes their jokes (even the really - not - even - funny ones which no one else will do them the service of listening to... XXXXXXX's there with a friendly ear) and you do definitely love to laugh. Perhaps it's something to do with the fact that you can be so serious so much of the time when you're in problem-solving mode: That Order-Out-Of-Chaos technician inside of you can get pretty serious and into her work, you know, so when you get a chance to laugh and get-down, then you love to do so. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You have learned in these last couple decades ways to be coy, to try to please, to try and slip around and even resorting sometimes to deception and deceit in order to assure to yourself that you're safe and that you are still in control. Control is one HUGE issue for you... mostly because you say that you feel you MUST be in control at all times, to keep from repeating some of the incidents from the past. But you know what? I'd present to you that I don't think it's so much CONTROL you seek, as it is FREEDOM FROM SOMEONE ELSE'S CONTROL that you seek. Do you understand the difference? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
And on the relationship front: You're quite a dreamy romantic on the subject of relationship. You're not sure that you really believe your perfect Dreamy Prince Charming is out there, because you have given him quite a bit to have to live up to. You really like holding an idealized version of relationship and partnership, and just as in your work world, you actually kind of like the process of evaluation as new prospects come into your sights. You have a tendency to have a manner much like a great satellite observation dish which can silently and passively appear to just take in LOTS of data about people when you first meet them, and you like to mull that data over and over and make your internal evaluations before you have to make a choice. You feel like you've still got quite a bit of time to make that "perfect" choice, so no point in hurrying it. You prefer to have made the RIGHT choice than the FAST one. Another motto. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Ever wonder what that might suggest? Here's a hint: All of the letters of the English language have only about three strokes in them: Vertical strokes, Horizontal strokes, and Round strokes. And in general, in our day to day writing, we're called upon to rather evenly strew them around; some letters require more angular strokes and some require more rounded ones, but pretty much, it's an even blend. Letters typically flow fairly evenly from one to another, and it is unusual to have very many letters tick back on themselves or compete with each other... The flow is usually maintained throughout. And yet, some of us have a preponderence to prefer to make one stroke over another, and in your case, certainly you have a preference for loops and hooks. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
From a Couples Read: Another interesting set of characteristics between the two of you is how you complement each other in a couple of specifically useful areas: Having to do with how each of you deals with people / neighbors / strangers, etc. XXheXX tends to be the one who can do the best at moving easily through a variety of people without getting affected by them emotionally (ie attachments) but still can maintain an understanding and relationship there with them. XXsheXX, on the other hand, can tend to get a bit tied into things and might need to be extracated from time to time by the less attached and masterful motion of XXheXX's ways. This would be particularly useful when the two of you end up getting invited to something which you really don't want to go to. XXsheXX if alone might just end up going in order to 'acquiesce' or 'accomodate' the host. But XXheXX, on the other hand, could take it or leave it, and wouldn't mind quite effectively bowing out without hurting the host's feelings. If XXsheXX tried that, it might come out either A) that the host felt a bit of that "intensity / defense" mentioned earlier in the writing here; or B) that the host ends up convincing you that you really wanted to come after all, and you end up going and resenting having done so! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
One of other the things I see in your hand which I didn't mention on the phone is the way you feel sometimes like you almost need to be re-assured in personal things, even though in business things and out there in general out in the world, you can kind of just sail on through most anything. This, too, must be a source of conflict and confusion for you, since you have such strong successes and competencies in the area of business and the "transpersonal" things related to others and the world, and yet have this 'shadow self' which has those strong needs of reassurance. This, I'm sure, relates to that point I was asking you about your maternal grandmother (your mother's mother)... in that it's in the arena of mother-needs / nurturing where there's some of the puzzle pieces missing. Are you aware of what this might be about? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
In the case of your sample, probably the first thing which stands out is the long swooping g in your last name. Looks like you appreciate the "good life" there... you like those persian carpets and fine olive oil, eh, and can get lost in the world of food? I don't know that I mentioned anything specifically about that on the phone when we spoke, but it's in there. What I know I would have mentioned is your slow-to-warm-up way of looking at people in general... how you're cautious and non-judgmental, yet more like a satellite dish just kind of hanging out there waiting for its next signal. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You have that chameleon 7 I was talking about... meaning that you tend to like to adapt your principles to whatever situation you find yourself in, and when necessary, will revise your principles according to the group's needs. This can be confusing for some people around you who truly want to know what YOU THINK, because you would prefer to be able to give them what you think they want / need than what you really might personally believe. Some call it flexibility; others call it hard to pin down. Either way, it's definitely not always the best way to help people get to know you. (And perhaps that's a part of its draw to you: to help you maintain more of that "obscure" personality mentioned from your signature above.) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You do have a bit of a temper... tend to let things rather fly when you feel them (and being a guy who feels first and thinks later, then the intensity within youi can sometimes get out before you can even issue a warning from the intellect!) You like to live life passionately and connectedly, and just aren't one for sitting back and watching things go by without any involvement! Just not your style. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
In the case of your sample, probably the first thing which stands out is the amount of information you can cram onto one page! Interesting exercise in miniaturizaion, eh? Perhaps instead of being a software engineer, you might want consider being a firmware engineer at LSI or Intel or something, actually writing the micro traces on ICs, etc! Kidding aside... your mind is a very complex puzzle place. I'm sure you know that, since you sort of live right there with it most of the time. You clearly feel much more comfortable relating to people via a keybaord than you do via handwriting... And for regular voice communication, you probably tend to be a rather slow to warm up type... ie: Like to have some distance between yourself and others early on, and tend to keep your voice rather quiet until you are comfortable and feel that you're on the inside. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You were just a bit shy on patience, shall we say... But if you were to send in another sample on down the road somewhere to compare with this one, we could probably discern a notable difference in level of anger vs peace... I am suggesting that this particular day was more one of those difficult days of intensity in general. (We have some people who send in samples every few months or so and then ask us to do what we call check- readings, comparing traits we mentioned before with current state of the handwriting... But you can do this yourself, too, by just writing a sample like this every few months and seeing what you notice has changed. You can usually see some of these things yourself, if you begin to train your eye to get the feel of it. And if you get stumped and are particularly curious about something you see, then use us again if you like.) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The loopy in your two suggests your friendly disposition and like of involvement from strangers / people in general... ie: You really like to go out there in life and just see who people are and receive them as themselves. You love to put your emotional velcro out there on the line and link it on in with other people's. But lately, the SHAPE of the tail of the two has more than likely gotten far more downtrodden and tentative with your dissilusionment with the job situation. (These things are a whole lot easier to SHOW than to TELL on paper here... if you were sitting here now, I could show you what I mean, but it's difficult to describe in detail here!) Suffice to say that you have that little frownly tail in your two's now, which I'll bet wasn't there before. It seems incongruous with the rest of your hand. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You should also have some pretty strong writing skills, accounting abilities, and even artistry about you... able to perhaps take up things as diverse as accounting; scientific research; interior design (not just as decorator, but actual full-scale design... more along the architecture side of things: space utilization and that kind of thing); public speaking / political activist; or full-scaled politician, willing to take on some of the difficult issues and go head to head with the best of them to bring information to your public and get things resolved. You're clearly a strong and effective worker and don't mind diving right in! (I don't know when this happened...your downsizing, but you should still be a VERY employable person. You do not lack for skills, and a potential employer will almost certainly immediately recognize your talent and drive. If it is your desire to get another job, I don't think you'd be long in the market!) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - As a child you may well have been called a 'know-it-all' because of your uncanny ability to figure things out and your always having an opinion about things. This may have led to some injured ego moments at home and school as a child, but as an adult, these same skills have more than once helped immensely. These skills can no doubt put you well out in the forefront as a superior consultant, because you are able to pull pieces together from so many different corners of an issue. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - That said, there are many positive points about relating with you, as well. You are one to be super devoted to your work and your family, especially when you feel you are sufficiently appreciated, honored and respected. You will always go above and beyond the call of duty in work and neighbor relationships, and though you might tend to be a little bossy and territorial about your space (ie: don't like neighbors getting too close to a property line, or co-workers to be infringing upon your space or using your private stocks) still you can be counted upon to very well uphold your responsibilities, and never let it be said that people have to doubt what you think either about your place in the work-relationship or project, or in your stance with neighbors or a neighborhood organization, PTA, or that kind of thing: When you feel that you have the respect and attention of those around you, you're very willing to precisely state your willingness to work on a particular project, (or lack of willingness) and let everyone know what you think at any point, anywhere along the way in the process. When your are less certain of that respect and attention, however, you may be less willing to risk taking a public point of view, and you might go into 'Search Mode' to figure out what is "really" going on with those around you instead of expending energy in taking a stance. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - In the case of your sample, probably the first thing which stands out is the sense of conflict of image in your hand: the fact that you have such an ostensibly outgoing hand (flowery full loopy strokes of Leo, for instance, if we were to take Astrology in consideration) which would suggest a sense of confidence and engagement, while at the same time quite a notable backslope to the hand, with those repeated dents in your loops, noticeable in your y, f, k, b, etc. What does this mean? well, it suggests that you have some serious internal FIRE going on in there, around issues of image and engagement. On a good day in fine energy, you can no doubt be charming and kind, engaging and very able to attract any attention you desire. And then on the other side of the dichotomy of this, you can sometimes get super defensive about ideas, images, judgments, principal issue, etc, when you feel as though someone has challenged you and struck a little close to home. It's likely tied to some childhood resentments of your perhaps having to grow up a bit before your time. Did you perhaps have to take on the parenting role for younger siblings? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Marketing seems an odd job for you to be in. Are you happy there? It would seem that Customer Service or Support might be a more reasonable and satisfying place for you to be, because in marketing you often have to come across as that 'STRONG' person of foundation and the emotional side of things isn't so much a day to day need. But in the support or service side of things, then your ability to empathize with your customer could really be useful, and you should be able to effect a good relationship fairly easily since you ARE able to put yourself in the other person's shoes. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Basically, to answer your question as to what your handwriting can reveal with it's "childish sloppy writing" as you call it, ... It reveals that you are very cautious about declaring yourself to be 'right' or 'in the know' and might suggest that though you may come across differently on the surface, when it comes to your private view of things, you're all too eager to take the blame for something and be quite hard on yourself for how you come across to other people. Relationships are prbably something which really set off your bells and whistles... You love to be loved, need to be needed, appreciate being appreciated, and yet, are really quite confused about how just to be yourself and be strongly confident about who you are from the core outward. The reason for that would likely be because it's hard for you to take that time to delve deeply into yourself; your private censors will say, "Now, XXXXZZY... don't be spending so much time on yourself! Get on out there and make a difference in the world!" and, poof, there goes your private time. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - On the occasion of a Re-Read of a couple previous read sessions: * You've certainly GROWN a lot since last time (though it's certainly not like you were a groveling non-human before.) Just that since then you've blossomed in ways you hadn't expected, and even from health issues and relationship issues and work issues, you continue to grow. (Likely literally, too... your hand suggests that there's more of you than there was a year and a half ago. You're not pregnant are you? There seems to be more SUBSTANCE to your physical being... you've 'moved into your body' a bit stronger.) * You're seeing work quite differently than you did before. You're more comfortable being a part of the crew there where you are, and you're enjoying your work for what it is, instead of trying to make it something it isn't. And yet, at the same time, you're restless, and you keep wondering "When's my NEXT ship coming in!?" (and probably more than just a career ship, too. There's also a relationship ship, a spiritual traveler ship, a peace with the family ship... lots of ships out there.) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - It's the kind of hand one often associates with an artist, thinker, poet, writer: Kind of moody, sensitive, introspective and intensely interested in everything around you as to what its message may be for YOUR life and path. Right now in your life, though, it looks like you're feeling much more vulnerable and "out there" than last time we spoke... Your baseline is wandering all over the place, which usually parallels emotional (and sometimes physical) distress. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - As you notice, your hand is a kind of combination between the two. Most people as they grow and become more "themselves" will remember what they choose to remember about the little green Zaner-Bloser / Palmer style sheet cards above the chalkboard from elementary shool, and they'll forget what they choose to forget.. with the net effect being that they end up bringing in a little manuscript and a little cursive and will create their very own style, personalized and reflective of their life. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You say on your sample that you're a business executive. Hmmm... your handwriting would suggest more that you work alone, that you much prefer to be on your own in your work, and if you're an executive, then it would be my guess that it's an executive on the move, and those you answer to are NOT in your face on a day-to-day... It's definitely a unique version of biz exec, then: Either exec'ing on your own alone, or you're on the road and interacting with the PUBLIC during your biz work, but almost certainly NOT the 9-5 "all day at the office, sitting behind your mahogany desk with a white shirt and tie", type. That simply would not suit you! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - One trait I perceive in your hand (primarily due to the stroke of your lonely little y's hanging off down there by themselves, and the way you strike back through your first name to dot your i) is that there is likely a pretty strong feeling of longingness in you, a wondering "Isn't there something MORE than this?" You'd like more to SHARE your path, and that's just not where you find yourself right now. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - In the case of your sample, probably the first thing which stands out is the broad stroke you use to paint your life... That is, I'll bet you don't slow down very much, and you tend to leave things partially done here, partially done there, because you're ALWAYS trying to do so many different things. And it's not that you're incompetent or incapable of finishing things; quite the contrary. You just have so much interest in new things all the time that you sometimes just go have to throw the breaker on things-- as if on overload-- and one of the breakers you use is to just start up something new again. Not a bad way to do it if you can handle the flurry of activity it requires. But I'll bet you've heard more times than once "Hey, ZZXXYYY, when are you going to come back to THIS!?" Meanwhile, you're off and taking in new adventures and starting new operations. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - And, right along the same lines of your pragmatic view of being cautious in relationship: I can see that in general you don't tend to like having lots of extraneous people around you; you much prefer hanging out with only a very limited trusted few, though you often find yourself among many people who might otherwise prove potential friends & supporting roles. Yu might want to consider the possibility that to broaden your sights a bit and open to the possibility that even people outside your 'normal' scope might have something to teach you about life, love, and spiritual awareness. Your internal control forces which have for so long kept some of those hatches slammed shut may well stand to benefit by releasing a bit, and beginning to take a little more time to Smell some of Life's Roses along the way. (Careers and Material things can indeed be convinced to take a back seat to some of the simpler, emotional things in life which at this time you tend mostly to shun and shy away from... Let them a little nearer more often, and I'll bet you'd be a happier guy!) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You have signs in your hand which would suggest that when you get to talking to people, you first go into the conversation very tentatively, mostly feeling out the situation, but once you have a niche from which to operate, you can be almost non-stop output! You clearly have some strong opinions and convictions on things, and definitely don't mind arguing, and with such strong opinions, Law may be a good place for you in some ways. But with your tandem hesitation about authority and control, then you could be setting yourself up for some real stress if you were to, in the course of your legal work, get pitted against someone whose opinions and stances were contrary to yours, yet just as strong! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - First of all, I note that you are quite a sensitive fellow, and yet, you are super hard on yourself. You mention that cursive was foisted upon you at age 6 and that you haven't written right since. Well... actually it's fairly normal for 6 and 7 year olds to be made to write in cursive. Cursive assists in linking motor skills with emotional flow of communication. It's more than just handwriting instruction. But early blocks there are often indicative of something other than just merely a case of handwriting. Is it possible that you may not have been taught to write with the proper hand in the first place? Are you left handed abut anything else you do? That does happen in some cases, and the effects can be manifold and sometimes hard to track down. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You were probably quite a brooding expressive teenager in those melancholic teen years, weren't you? I'll bet you and your mother had some serious rows! You probably kept an absolutely fascinating journal since you were so committed to putting it all down on paper. But that's probably a thing of the past now, eh? (and you've probably, due to your almost paranoia about privacy and properness [are you a Virgo?], burned it long ago!) With your newfound aptitudes in the social arena today, which weren't as available to you as that brooding socially dramatic teen, you nowadays are much more often able to process directly with people instead of on paper as your emotions and your curiosities emerge. Still, though, you'd very likely be someone who needs her space and her stage to sally forth onto from time to time... You love your emotional expressiveness and the way you can be something of a drama queen when it serves! Ahh... the actresss in you emerges! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You tend to be a very strong organizer, loving to get to the bottom of an organizational scheme and look for hours and hours at all the details of things. As such, family & friends' gossip gives you quite a fascinating piece of investigative work to figure out... you love to be 'in-the-loop' when anything is going on, and are particularly adept at playing hostess, party-assistant, or anything like this revolving around getting large groups of people seamlessly socializing around a theme! Weddings, Showers, Parties, etc... there are quite interesting to you if you can do the organizing. (Ironically, however, when you are merely expected to be just 'one of the masses', things get far less interesting for you, and you may well almost prefer to curl up with a good book than to have to be just an ornament at a party!) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You sometimes find that you let people's feelings and ways get into you... you like so to be able to understand, to feel, to relate to people, and you don't like to argue or be misunderstood, and therefore sometimes will not raise issues, even when you have irritations around you. As a result, you likely tend to bottle things up a bit, and it is in your writing & your self-discussions that you are able to resolve these things better. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You've really got an aptitude for coming at life with both sides of your brain! This would also suggests, (like many of the renaissance artists and great minds) that you may well have feelings of ambivalence and inclusivity when it comes to choosing a particular phase of relationship over another... that is: to be direct, you'd likely be inclined to bisexuality, and comfortable with that aspect of yourself, embracing both the strong and the sensitive within yourself. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I can see that recluse though you may sometimes be, still you are an exemplary co-worker & neighbor... always choosing to contribute above & beyond the call: when you put in your 2 cents worth, it's always worth 25 at least! You like to think a lot, like to run things over in your head again and again, whether it's in that reclusive nature or in the open. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You have a strong sense of principles, and find solace in feeling like though your day-to-day may seem aimless or confused or mislaid from time to time, in the long run, you feel no squeamishness whatsoever that all things will work out for the best. You have strong senses of the connectedness of your life with Spirit & the Great Beyond (whatever that may mean to you...) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You probably have a real tug-o-war inside about getting involved with people or just letting them alone; you have no trouble speaking with and relating to people, but when it comes to a deeper more intimate involvement in their everyday lives, that is likely to be much more of a challenge for you: You would LOVE to trust everyone you meet, but your experience has shown you that sometimes that's just not wise, and right now (at least for the period around when you wrote this sample) you seem to be having some memory ghosts coming in from 6 or 7 years ago when you very likely had some difficult moments with trust and boundaries, and that's resounding within things about now again. All of this plays itself out in terms of relationship trauma / drama. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Your hand in general suggests a moody nature, with a general upbeat to your moodiness, yet a sometimes reclusive nature wherein you go deep into your creative caves, to play with ideas & thoughts & memories & plans, often to return to civilization with a beautiful product in hand. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You have a quiet way about you in your partying-type social interactions.... In these kinds of settings, you'd be the person who is polite, kindly, helpful, etc. and yet moving on the periphery of things in order to better collect data on what was going on with the 'performer' types in center ring. People have always fascinated you, and you love a system for better understanding them. You tend to have a kind of idealized view of people in general, and don't like to write people off too soon. As such, you are probably chided by some of your more callous friends (because you would have friends from all walks of life) for being somewhat of a PollyAnna & pushover because you won't just write people off. You prefer to take friends for life, and like to see the best of everyone rather than try to find reasons to separate yourself and others from the masses. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You have a strong sense of principles, and find solace in feeling like though your day-to-day may seem aimless or confused or mislaid from time to time, in the long run, you feel no squeamishness whatsoever that all things will work out for the best. You have strong senses of the connectedness of your life with Spirit & the Great Beyond (whatever that may mean to you...) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You're likely a cat-person, and you likely have an interestingly off-beat sense of humor, for which you are appreciated among your close friends (though many people may think you almost too serious to have a sense of humor, because they really don't know you well enough?) When you meet someone you really click with, you can just go on & on, but for that first few meetings, or the early hours of a party / get together, you're more one to be pensive & watching, with your satellite dish open & taking it all in, so as to better understand in your cat-like curiosity & reserve. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You've got some strong strokes in your hand pointing to your sometimes strong judgments of what's right & wrong, and who's conspiring with whom for what purpose. You have a kind of dreamy & idealistic view of relationship & principles in general, and therefore find yourself quite often disappointed with traits & realities of people here on the planet who can never quite live up to your rather high expectations. But then, you have to admit, your high expectations are a little high for you to reach even for yourself, either, and as a result you often almost have a private little set of parents who live on your shoulders whispering self-judgments and criticisms into your ear. (Maybe it'd be okay to knock them off your shoulder sometime so you could have a pleasant little time just hanging out without the judgments forever flowing in, and this would likely cut some of the judgments & expectations flowing OUT, thereby making your life a little less prone to disappointment at all.) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The first thing that stands out about your hand is your quiet nature, and tendency to be what I refer to as 'The Good Little Girl', in that you prefer to accomodate people rather than confront them, prefer to find ways where all sides can be seen & understood if possible, and prefer almost above all, Harmony & Peace rather than dischord & disharmony. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You absolutely LOVE to talk, and that's something you've gotten down to an art. You find yourself linking into all kinds of people, and whether or not you find them personally interesting, still you find you can always find something to talk to each and every one of them, and that keeps things interesting & on the move! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - One thing which stands out as a bit of a sore spot in you is evident in the way you made three of four of your 7's... with the little hook at the upper left, and the swooping rounded hump of the upper right. This has a quiet little story to tell about something you may not want told!, that being the way in which you might choose to handle gossipping indiscretions which might come your way. Though quite natural in keeping with your genuine kindly interest in most people you come in contact with, something perhaps a bit judgmental or busy-body comes up with you when you get into gossipping. You would tend to like best to be able to hear all the dirt on someone and yet do so as transparently as possible, so that you could still maintain a measure of 'plausible denyability' about it all... "Who, Me?!" you could say in your best Shirley Temple innocence, all the while having amassed a truckload dossier on the poor soul subject of the discussion! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Quite an adaptable person, eh? This is not to say you do not have a temper, or lack in judgment; quite the contrary. When you riled up, you can really let fly with things (but most, it seems, only on those whom you are very close... you just don't see a point in ranting & raving for anyone!) You have a very stiff point of principles in your life, and like it that way. You'd prefer to live alone with your principles than to have to compromise them to live with someone else. Your patience is strong & deep, but once it's exhausted, it's exhausted. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Very likely, you're an incredibly unpredictable sort, and rather like that side of yourself. You may well call it "adventurous" or "spontaneous" or "diverse"... but the bottom line remains that you are very likely one whose sleep hours, diet & dress can vary wildly, compared, say, to some of your colleagues whose lives you would feel might well put you to sleep. You learned early on that variety was the spice of life, and try though you may to be 'ordinary', you're so much better at being your own unique blend of XXXXXXX instead. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You have a very quick mind and tendency to be involved in everything around you. You are willing to offer an opinion on just about anything coming even remotely near you, and have an ability to move fluidly across many varying levels and stations of people & aspects of social structures. Your attachment to any particular state or opinion is minimal, as you have always prided yourself on your ability to transcend any particular ideaology. This can make for identity problems sometimes if you tried to deeply identify with any particular aspect of self, however, and you may well be afflicted from time to time with what we might lightly refer to as paralysis of opportunity... certainly more often than most people, merely by virtue of the fact that you are always alert & scanning for opportunities & connections around you. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Another strong impression from your hand comes as a result of your choice to write in all caps; this gives us the sense that you're rather an outspoken and firm controller of the reins... looking at your sample in conjunction with your daughter's gives a stronger impression as to why she has chosen certain structures and forms within her hand. For instance: you have a very strong and firm, though at the same time rather secretive and held-back way of communicating... YYYYY, on the other hand, feels a strong need to be heard and can, as I told her, be quite an intense and expressive person for her age. This is very likely a direct result of having had to learn to be strong & expressive over the beam & expression you yourself put out to the world and her world around her. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - I'm sure you're a very popular and likeable employee, and one to be admired as a model of efficiency & effectiveness as a secretary. The one possible drawback can be your sharp tongue when pressed into defensive posture, and your unrelentless willingness to press on in favor of justice & the greater ideal! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Though your strong sense of taking sides can sometimes make you a formidable adversary from the view of your opponents, when you're working a little closer to home and in the world of your family, friends and close co-workers, you definitely have a playful and affable nature about you, and can come across as genuine, open, and generous. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Were you born outside the States somewhere, or was one or both of your parents an immigrant from the British Isles? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - One of your traits which likely comes in handy in your work environment is your ability to deal with stress and strain in quite an effective manner, in that you are able to fairly well sail thru the hectic little irritations of a day in favor of getting a job stewarded well to completion. You may well be prone to neck strain & headaches, though, because of your intense concentration. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - In other views... one thing which stands out pretty clearly from your hand is that you're not very comfortable with social interaction in general... it very nearly could be said to have terrified you since you were in your teen years. Likely, you felt a great deal of criticism in your early years, and it may be the case that you wondered who your father might be, and that perhaps you never felt particularly close to him. A part of your uncertainty about some of the social interaction & social role situations may well be due to the lack of good solid reflection you were able to glean in your teen years. Does this strike a bell anywhere? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - There is a little shakiness in your hand. This could indicate that you writing on an uneven surface, or sometimes we find these traits in someone who is currently on some sort or medication that may affect the nervous system. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - It appears to me that you may also be on some medication for an injury to your spine, or that you may have a neck injury. Is this the case? Certainly these things will affect more than your handwriting; they can affect your entire outlook on life! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You were likely the youngest of a family, or raised at least as a near-only child... if you have elder siblings, they were likely pretty much out of the nest before you. As such, you had the opportunity to play the 'little girl' much longer than you would have had you had siblings of very near age with you, and you are still quite accustomed to getting your own way with things. You likely found that temper tantrums or odd emotional tug-o-wars worked for you as an attention getting device as a child, and though you have certainly learned as an adult that things don't quite work that way, still you find yourself able and tempted to maniuplate those around you with emotional and situational tug-o-wars. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You don't tend to be the shy and reserved type, just sitting back watching the world go by. Quite totally the contrary! You can hardly NOT speak your opinion about things, and tend to move about in a flurry & flourish of activity & energy, with few people able to compete with you when it comes to striking up a good discussional topic. You have absolutely no reservations whatever about speaking your mind, and can really be taken to be pushy & overbearing by people who may not take the time to understand or get to know you. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You've given her quite a monolithic model to try to live up to be like, by your very nature, and her tendency to be a very different type... quieter, less tenacious about going out and grabbing the floor, makes for times of uncertainty and self-doubt on her part, and a contant measuring of herself against what she has seen of you & your life. Certainly you may see this as no time like the present for her to get on out there and fly, but perhaps a conscious commitment to some of the more quietly supportive ways would find much stronger bonds in the long run. She is nearing adulthood, yes, and you may have that tendency to push her on out there and say, "See, Honey, I knew you could do it... but she is so very much different than you are, and I hope you'll also consider the possibility that what she needs much more right now than any overt guidance is a committed ear and thoughtful presence which offers not overt guidance, but merely opportunity to express herself in a safe space... - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You're pretty creative & well-set for someone your age. You likely spent a good portion of your teenage years as a sort of moody philosopher type, figuring things out and learning new ways to write your personal treatises of the behavioral methods of the Human Race. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - You have a very strong sense of principles, and it's interesting that you and XXXXX would choose to send your handwriting samples together; you are so VERY different that it's hardly necessary to mention. She must drive you nuts with her view of flexible principles, which you, in your philosophical way would likely want to berate for their lack of depth and commitment. She is, on the other hand, very likely something of a catalyst for you, and able to give you that quiet little kick you need to 'Lighten Up' and get on out there to smell the roses in her garden of variety & activity / chaos! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
