Graphology Reveals… Are you in Control or a Control Freak?

Are you in Control or a Control Freak?

By D. West, Contributing Writer and Certified Handwriting Expert

Franklin D. Roosevelt once said that “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”

The irony is that most of us believe that fear protects us from harm, when the reality is that it often leads to controlling behaviors such as paranoia, narrow-mindedness and aggression.

We convince ourselves that the desire to control others is necessary to protect all, when in reality it displays a lack of faith in our own abilities to handle any situation – no matter what the outcome. The belief that fate is cruel often becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, as we insist on resisting, rather than surrendering to life events.

Control freaks repeatedly suffer negative experiences, simply because they lack the belief that the universe is a good place that is constantly “on the upswing,” and therefore is naturally inclined to provide luck and opportunity as opposed to misery and threats.

Do you believe that life is inclined to flow correctly or do you think you have to control events because life flows against you?

For healthy individuals, the idea of “losing control” is actually associated with fun. Studies have shown that developing character traits such as flexibility, adaptability and optimism are concurrent with a greater incidence of good fortune in life.

Sadly, the typical control freak often achieves a public self image that is the opposite of what they are trying to achieve with their pretense of force and authority. They are often disliked by others and perceived as emotionally insecure, rather than as powerful people.

The desire to control is based on a fear of change and a conviction that all change is negative. This outworn defense mechanism is usually left over from a childhood where the individual may have learned the fine art of over-vigilance, due to a toxic or unpredictable parent. In adult-hood “necessary protection” becomes a paralyzing and self-defeating liability, as the control freak refuses to accept a certain, ages-old cosmic law — the more we attempt to manipulate or control events, the more they seem to control or manipulate us.

Control freaks actually have less control in the end.

The sages say, “The pain is in the struggle. The more we attempt to control, the more we lose our ability to manifest success.”

Evidence of this kind of self-sabotaging struggle is indicated by certain handwriting traits:

Primary Control Traits:

Does the writing look pretty and perfect? If so, then that person has a fear of not being perfect. Get it? If they exert that much time and precision to make the baseline straight and the letters all match – then they have a fear of things being “out of place.”

Controlling individuals are also over-concerned with detail and the way his or her writing appears on the page. Often, this is shown by making sure that each small i is capped very closely by its dot.

The writing may also express retentiveness in other ways: successive or repeated letters may be formed identically throughout the document with a particular emphasis on up and down strokes being identical. Each line of writing may appear super straight, as if a ruler underscored each line of the manuscript.

The above assessment is the “gestalt” or overall rhythm and look of the writing.

When you learn the level 5 “advanced trait stacking” method, you can identify complicated traits by stacking various strokes together. So often, a person might have control issues, even if they don’t have that one “domineering t-bar”. So, order the new DVD Advanced Course today and learn the advanced primary and stacked traits methods, read about it here

The following trait is a specific stroke: domineering.

A domineering personality will often cross their t‘s from left to right in a downward motion. If the t-bar is low on the stem – then you throw in low self-esteem and this compounds the insecurity.


If the t-bar dips to the right and into the baseline with a sharp point (sarcasm). . . watch out.

If the t-bar has a blunt ending the person is just dominant, not domineering. (domineering has negative connotations, dominant can just be a good type of control.)

An indication that you are dealing with a potential Hitler is if the t resembles a little stick figure man leaning to the side, trying to touch his right hand to his right toe. This reveals great instability and an individual that is not only his own worst enemy — he might become yours!

When it comes to dealing with your unconscious fears, “resistance really is futile.” Changing your handwriting can help you surrender those fears which lead to controlling and self-defeating behaviors that are unattractive to others and repel the kindness of fate.

Is this couple headed for divorce? Are they a match made in heaven or hell? Handwriting reveals all!
-by Bart Baggett

One of the most profound uses of handwriting analysis is the art of compatibility analysis. I say “art” because even though predicting the personality is based on solid psychological principles, the ability to combine those two personalities and predict how these to humans will interact takes years of experience and is not something that can be calculated with math.

Look at the two samples and decide if you think the marriage will last. At the time they wrote this, now, they are married. However, they are considering divorce. Can they change? Should she change or he change?

Is he the problem or is she the problem? In my experience, it is always a two-way street. In this situation, They are both too sensitive to criticism and both have valid reasons, at this point, to want to leave the other.

I think she has been most generous and he is a pain in the butt.


Amanda, Wife


Now, here is her husband’s handwriting. We will call him JOE. Are they a good match. Will they get divorced?


Here are my notes on Amanda’s Handwriting sample below.

1. Fluid thinker, bright mind. Connects thoughts in a fluid fasion. Good talker.
2. Yielding round top “s”. Avoid conlict and yields in arguments when she knows she is right.
3. t-bars 3/4 of the way up the stem: good goals, pragmatic, good self-esteem
4. closed e-loops. Selective listening … closed her ears to certain people.
5. Tall looped d-stem. Excessive fear of criticism and vanity. Concerned about what others
might think and gets defensive quickly.
6. End of word tilting down is a sign of depression. Check for medical or emotional symptoms.
7. M humps going downhill = diplomacy.. a kind way with words and people.
8. A in Amanda is healthy size indicating a healthy ego to support a decent self-esteem. (Not high, but better than average.)
9. Big spaces between letters indicate a sense of generosity with her time and money.
10. a and o shapes that are very clean, open, and not-closed at the top indicate a sense of honesty, talkativeness, and clear communication.


Here are my notes on Joe’s Handwriting sample below.

1. Tall looped d-stem. Excessive fear of criticism and vanity. Concerned about what others
might think and gets defensive quickly. This loop is MUCH larger than Amanda’s because his middle zone is so much smaller. This indicates he is almost paranoid. He imagines criticism and makes assumptions that are not true. HARD TRAIT TO LIVE WITH.
2. Bouncy baseline indicates a fast mind and a lack of anal-retentive qualities. Often people with bouncy baselines are clumsey.
3. t-bars 3/4 of the way up the stem: good goals, pragmatic, good self-esteem as it relates to goals. ( A large d is an insecurity, but it should not be confused with one’s self-esteem)
Very pointed t-bars indicate a VICIOUS sarcasm. This is his defense mechanism for his sensitiveness…. hyper critical.
4. Very talkative. Talks without thinking first. He may be prone to hurt feelings considering his sarcastic and impulsive nature.
5. Go to HELL K. This large K indicates his rebellious personaity and need to break the rules. Hates conformity.
6. Sexual frustration. No surprise… his wife, Amanda, is divorcing him. Go figure.
7. Y and G downstrokes that end in a straight line and fade away. Straight down indicates a loner… he doesn’t trust or want to need anyone close. The fading quality is a bit of laziness and inability to make a strong powerful finish. I would say his physical drives and even energy has been compromised lately.
8. The d-stem is both looped and tilted backwards at a significantly different slant than the rest of the writing. This shows he “withdraws” into himself when he gets criticized and goes into his shell. (Yes, he has sarcasm… but his shell is the safest place when his feelings are hurt. This is confirmed by the small writing. )

Finally, his writing is small, focused, and has sharp points on his m and n humps. This shows a high level of analytical ability, focus, concentration , and intensity. His fear is what drives him to be difficult to live with because his defense mechanisms must be turned on 24 hours per day. He should retrace his “d” before he gets re-married.

This couple is already in the process of a divorce. Good decision.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ):
http://myhandwriting.com/FAQ

Q: What can be told from a person’s signature?
A: The signature represents what a person wants the world to see or what he wants to be, an image that may or may not be the same as the inner self. Because a signature contains only a few letters, it does not provide enough information for the analyst to make a complete and accurate evaluation.
Q: My signature is illegible. What does that mean?
A: It means people have a hard time reading your name. Seriously, illegible handwriting can mean a number of things. In general, an illegible signature reveals a desire to be seen but not known, keeping things private.You may want to keep your true identity hidden. It could also mean you are in a hurry. People who continually sign their name all day long often do so in a hurry and, therefore, don’t care what their signature looks like. Illegible handwriting in combination with other specific traits may indicate dishonesty, but there are a lot of variables.
Q: Why is my signature different than how I write everything else?
A: Because the signature is a badge to the world. It is a representation of what a person wants the world to see about himself. A signature that is different from the rest of his writing says he does not want to reveal everything about himself. There may be some aspect of his personality that he wants to hide, so he creates a new “person” by creating a signature with a different look.
