Handwriting Analysis: What Do the I - Dots Reveal About Your Personality

HandwritingAnalysis, What does your handwriting say about you, how to read a i - dot, what does your handwriting reveals about your personality, What does your i dot tells about you, The meaning of i dot, spot the dots in you handwriting, Analysis of i dots, graphology - i dots

You will be surprised to know that “i” – dots can disclose a lot about your personality and character. It is indeed true "i" dots do reveal a lot about you. Read on to spot the dots in your handwriting and find out what does the tiny alphabet letter “i “have to say about you?

In Graphology the analysis of the “i“dot is based on the three P’s

Position - Where it is placed

As a general rule the closer the “i” dot is in the formation of the “i,” it suggests extra attention to details. And on the contrary, the farther away the “i” dot, it reflects the writer’s trait of possessing less attention to details.

The precisely placed “i” dot just above the stem points out the character traits of accuracy, and perfection. The writer shows strong adherence to details and possesses excellent memory. The writer not only takes the effort in dotting the i, but dots it exactly at the position where it belongs. This highlights the effective concentration skill and the ability to follow rules easily. When the “i”-dot is placed comparatively much higher away from the stem, it reveals the writers imaginative nature. Details emphasize to be realistic, but when the “i” dots seem to be flying away from the stem, this trait highlights that the writer loves to run off from the realm of reality, loves to daydream and enjoys building castles in the air.

You will also come across few peoples' handwriting where the “i” dot seems to be missing completely. This shows that the writer possesses lack of attention to details, and simply can’t cope with details. The dotless “i” reveals the character traits of being forgetful, careless and negligent. In a writing when an “i” dot is placed relatively near to the stem, and occasionally few “i” dots are completely missing, it shows that the writer loves to follow only the essential details which are mandatory but the trivial details are tend to be easily ignored.

An “i”-dot which is placed to the left side of the stem is a sure shot sign of procrastination and also highlights negative attitude. It also points out lack of self-confidence. The placement of “i” dot to the left of the stem represents the past and reveals that the writer loves to live in the past.

On the other hand the “i" dot to the right of the stem also called -the post-placed- i dot signifies the future. “i” dot to the right side of the stem simply points out the traits of eagerness to move on, the writer reveals the attitude of impatience and a trait of being in rush almost all the time. The writing shows speed and the desire to finish the tasks quickly without paying attention to precise details.

Where the writer continues his writing in such a way that from the “i”-dot, he moves onto the next letter without lifting his pen, it highlights the speed and creativity of a sharp and agile mind.

Profile - Shape of “i“- dot

Dots which are placed as circles or drawn as any other shape points out the immature behavior of the writer, and a deep desire to be noticed. Dots which are drawn as circles are commonly found in teenage handwritings, revealing the desire to attract attention.

When the dot shape comes out to be more of a dash it represents energy and irritability. The writer seems to be in speed and does not care about precision details. There is also a possibility that the writer is disturbed or anxious about something which makes him fling his pen in such a way that his dots turn out to be dashes.

If the shape of the “i” dot appears to be like commas or arcs it reveals humorous nature of the writer. The “i” dot look similar to laughing mouths and points out the witty and gaiety behavior of the writer.

Pressure - How heavy is the pressure while writing the i dot

A dot of any shape regardless of its placement, which is barely visible, due to the light pressure applied while writing simply reveals lack of energy and liveliness. It shows low vitality of the writer.The very light "i" dot shows lack of willpower, which can be possibly physical weakness or even sickness, signifying that the writer had no strength to point the “i” dots.

When the dot is is placed precisely over the stem and is heavy, it reveals excellent memory, sound judgment, and ability to do detailed and precise work. The writer with a heavy dot tends to be materialistic in nature.

By now you have become an "i" – dot expert, so what are you waiting for ? Go pick up a sheet of handwriting and start analyzing right now. Go ahead and spot the dots in signatures or handwriting, they really reveal a lot!

Oh my goodness, it is all in the "eyes". I'm glad for typing.

Another good reason for Microsoft Word.

Nice article Ruby.....of course we must remember the way an analysis can be done, either the Gestalt (whole picture) or the Atomistic schools....A combination may be correct way to go, but it could be misleading to go the "party piece" route....as we all know, these "indicators" cannot be taken in isolation, and must occur a number of times to become a "trend" But PLEASE keep them coming - it is refreshing to have somebody knowledgeable to debate with about this neglected subject.

Interesting article... to bad I haven't written any i's in a very long time...

What if the dots are missing all together?

Petal that simply confirms my earlier point....it ALL depends on the OVERALL picture...the GESTALT....is the writing block, printing,cursive,artistic.....it COULD indicate forgetfulness, but then is it irregular, a trend, or a habit. We must NOT use these "Party pieces" to analyse handwriting out of context - THAT is precisely why people have the mistaken impression that handwriting analysis does not apply, and is not "scientific" etc. Moreover, the "instant analysis" can be, in certain cases, very dangerous....for example if we are looking atn a person with an eating disorder, or for integrity...one judgement wrong....then what?

i think you did a incredible job on writing your article, i give it an i+ :)

That's really interesting. I dot my eyes in the middle not left or right and I tend to use some force on them... Guess you know what I'm like then

After reading this, I just had to write out a few sentences (trying not to think about it too much) to look at my own writing patterns. I think I must be in trouble...my "i" dots are really high but placed all over the map...sometimes not even near the stem, but just thrown in there because I had some recolection of having written an "i". Oh well, I am what I am... Very interesting article, Ruby!

One can know so much from a simple alphabet "i"...wow. That's incredible.

Taken out of context the individual letters are meaningless

The diacritic 'dot' over lowercase letters such as in the letters "i" and "j" is called a "tittle." The original mark was larger in the 11th century, but was changed in modern time when Roman-style letter typeface (printing press and movable typeset, etc) was introduced. Even though "tittle" is seldom used to name this little glyph, repeatedly calling it an "i-dot" somehow lessens the authority of the otherwise factual presentation. -And it also makes it sound like an Apple Computers product... (Introducing the new APPLE I-dot..) ;-)

A lovely observation!

This Handwriting academy in Bangalore, offers training and services in Grapho Psychology - The art of Handwriting Analysis & Interpretation.

Interesting - but some of the top tuition worldwide is provided by the AAHA run by Heidi Harrelson and then also Sheila Lowe.


How to get more details? Superb your article

I really appreciate your effort. I found it amazingly interesting. And I think I come into the category of immature writer as I used to make circles instead of dots-teenager! :P voted up!
