How to Identify Depression, Sadness, Disappointment and Negative Emotions from Your Handwriting | S.Sulianah | Grapholistic International
It might not be easy to tell people about how you feel when you are disappointed, upset or sad about a situation you are experiencing because sometimes you feel like you could not trust them enough to share about how you feel. Or it is not easy for you to express your feelings into words.
Then, you ended up keeping it to yourself. Yes, sometimes it works but at times it might not.
By keeping your feelings to yourself, you might feel constricted, then you tend to question your capabilities, and not believing in yourself. Feelings of paranoid will emerge.
These feelings of sorrow can be caused by any factors that you are experiencing such as loss of someone, holding on to your past, worrying about your future, disappointed because of failures, things that did not turn out as you have imagined. You then tend to loss interest with yourself and anything that you are doing.
Take note that this video is not to diagnose any psychological conditions related to depression or emotional conditions. This is merely to help you learn to be self-aware of your emotions, and character at the moment.
By looking into analyzing your handwriting, this is one of the ways for you to more insights about yourself and observe whether you are really experiencing the moments of hopelessness or negative emotions.
1. Descending Baseline on Your Handwriting
Firstly, check the baseline of your handwriting.
Place your ruler on the baseline. Take the first 2 or 3 lines, the middle and the ending part of your essay.
Where is the baseline direction heading towards?
If you are experiencing a negative emotion such as disappointments, upset, wanting to give up, lose interest in yourselves and life, the baseline you will see will tend to descend or vary up and down inconsistently.
2. Ascending Baseline Above 10°
However, on the other hand, if your baseline is ascending above 10 degrees, with other supporting traits such as being too sensitive, nervousness, tiredness, this could mean that you are experiencing that sorrow and gloomy emotions but is trying to fight against it.
3. Striking-off Your Signature
4. Descending Baseline Signature
Then, the next trait you can check is your signature’s baseline.
Most of the time, signature’s baseline usually match with your main text. As we have learnt in earlier video, main text is the part where you write your essay.
So, if your signature matches your main text with the baseline descending, it means that it is consistent that you feel the same – the feelings of dejection, low level of energy, fatigue even when you are socializing. That is the same as how you are portraying yourself to others.
5. t-Bar Low in the Middle Zone
The last handwriting trait is where you placed your t-bar on your t-stem. When you placed it low on the middle zone, that is a sign of low goals, and low perception of yourself.
If you are not having a positive impression about your achievements and what you can or cannot do, you will end up not being happy towards yourself, your life and the environment surrounding you. Then this depressive outlook towards your life will develop gradually over the years.
Remember that even though you have these traits, it doesn’t mean they are in a depressive phase.
You have to also make sure what is your writing position, the rhythm of your handwriting, pressure, other strokes and whether your handwriting is consistent with all those traits every time you write. If it is same, then it can be seen as embedded in your personality. However, if not, highest possibilities are that you are only having that emotion at that moment.

How to Spot a Confident Job Interview Candidate from their Handwriting? | Corporate Personnel Selection for HR and Recruiters | Graphology | Grapholistic International
You are searching for someone to fill up the job position in your company.
This person has to be confident in speaking up when he needs to, not only to the colleagues he will be working with in the team, but also to your clients. He has to be confident to make decisions without worrying about how he is intimidated by the presence of your clients or even his colleagues. He has to have the confidence to represent your company.
So now, you have to select The One out of the 15 applicants you have interviewed over the last couple of weeks. You are trying to learn their genuine character beneath the ones they portrayed to you during the interviews.
How to identify out of these candidates, who is the one with confidence from their handwritings?
1. Check the Letter t-bar
First, check the letter t-bar. Where is it placed on the t-stem? If he placed it below the middle zone, the candidate is expected to set low goals and is not confident to have a long-term vision for himself. This trait also shows the level of his self-esteem.
He will have doubts on his own capabilities and will feel like he does not have the desire and self-encouragement to push himself back up again when he is facing with challenges or failures.
While for the candidate with the higher placed t-bar on the upper zone, like this, he will be more confident about his talents and what he can do. Which means he will be self-assured when he is with your clients and his colleagues.
2. Size of Signature
The second step is to observe the size of his signature and his main text. His main text refers to the paragraphs of the essay he has written.
If his signature is smaller than the main text, he is more inclined to be less confident from the one who writes with a larger signature. Not only that, he feels intimidated and inferior compared to those around him. Usually this will be obvious from the eye of the beholder.
A more confident person can be seen from his larger signature which is larger than the main text of his essay, bold and optimistic signature.
3. Placement of Signature
Then, the next trait you can check is where he placed his signature on the paper. Is it on the left or the right side of the paper?
If it is on the left, he will tend to avoid introducing himself to your clients, for instance at a company event. So, if this position is related to marketing, sales, PR, or similar to these, the other applicant who signs on the right side of the paper will be more inclined and comfortable to present himself to your clients without you, the employer, by his side.
4. Pressure of Signature
So, did you manage to find any of these traits on your candidates’ handwriting?
