The manner in which you type tells a lot about your personality. although this article is about handwriting it apples to typing as well. one can tell a lot from a post that is not said...

 

http://www.dailymail...nked-write.html

 

 

For instance..

 

article-2380858-1B0D8411000005DC-898_634

 

How you type and set out your posts projects an image.

 

Like if you type a long sentence and you dont use commas or paragraphs.and you dont leave spaces and you type large blocks of text.where the words bleed into each other and you cant be bothered to add capitals etc.people are less likly to read your posts.and yyou dont spellcheck and you say your when it should be your'e.

See?

 

Interesting article, and I see some of my traits (like my signature), mentioned in it.

but you can say more with fewer words if you leave the spaces out.

Godisnowhere can say

"God is now here" or "God is no where"

I don't buy it.If I am having a bad day and am not typing properly that means I am a lunatic??That is like those personality questionaires.

I am fairly skeptical of this. Is there any research which supports these notions that uptight types write narrow e's etc? When there is some kind of pathology involved, e.g. the stuff with the parkinson's, that makes sense. The rest seems a bit contrived to me.

They had to come up with something to justify that grant.    :whistling:

It does mention research conducted by the "National Pen Company" but I have to seriously question how statistically significant a lot of these correlations are.

Well, I can tell you something that is absolutely true......    I'd rather people who freak out over mis spelled words not even read my posts..   Especially while I'm having to type two fingered.  CAPS are a pain in the patoot.

I type two fingered all the time.(I also have to rest my right arm on the desk because of an old shoulder injury, so much so that my elbow is sometimes tender at the end of a day). It is how I taught myself. Wrong I know. But it is what it is, and I have managed to type massive reports, law reviews, etc. Using two fingers.

 

I take the time to check spelling, grammar, and punctuation in consideration of those who may be reading what I say.

 

Huge slabs of text, that lie like a brick on the page, are very unappealing to me. I generally scan read them for moderating purposes. If I wanted to read War and Peace I would go buy it  :cool2:

The FBI uses handwriting experts to profile serial killers and terrorists, so I guess there is something in it. (not just to match handwriting, but to read between the lines as it where). Read the article and look at the signature section. It describes me in a way. (going by my signature - although I fall between the two types I think)

Interesting to be sure, I like the article.  My wide "L" loops seem to cancel out my Long Crosses on my "T's".  Was searching for the green ink category but did not find it.

Yeah but the FBI has also used lie detector tests and other things of ... questionable... help. I know the reliability of this stuff has been questioned pretty hard.

 

Wikipedia is damning and reflects serious controversy:

 

Graphology is the pseudoscientific[1][2] study and analysis of handwriting, especially in relation to human psychology. In the medical field, the word can be used to refer to the study of handwriting as an aid in diagnosis and tracking of diseases of the brain and nervous system. The term is sometimes incorrectly used to refer to forensic document examination.

 

Graphology has been controversial for more than a century. Although supporters point to the anecdotal evidence of thousands of positive testimonials as a reason to use it for personality evaluation, most empirical studies fail to show the validity claimed by its supporters.[3][4]

Kind of skeptical of this, reads like more of a horoscope than actual forensic research.

Yeah, that  is my impression of it also. Not that people can't have fun with it, but I'd hate for people to make serious judgements based on it.

OK ok...all kidding aside, my dad was an undercover detective and also with Canada's famous RCMP prior to that and they used all kinds of things to spot the person who

seemed out of place or up to no good.

 

This is not TSA stuff...this was long before that when you actually had to know something and didn't get to grope everyone and rummage through their personal belongings

just because you can.

 

Faces, clothes, shoes, manner and yes even handwriting...all those things are who you are.  If you know how to 'read' people (because that is what it is) many things give away

what kind of person you are dealing with.

 

Good dectectives (my dad was) develop their intuition through experience and some are better than others.  Back in the day, police actually were given manuals, illustrated, with different

character types and what to look for in a criminal or criminal 'type'.  Of course you cannot do any of that now...but before you all say hogwash, it's not all hogwash any more than a keenly

developed gift of discernment is.

 

As far as psychics go, they are not all kooks.  Remember the slave girl in the NT...she had psychic abilities.  Of course that side of things is not a gift from God...but it does exist.

 

Well anyway, think what you will, but while y'all 'sleep tight' someone is out there catching the bad guy and it's not the gang from CSI   ;)

No it's Mr Holmes !

 

Sherlock Holmes: Are you familiar with the study of graphology?  

 

Professor James Moriarty: I’ve never given it any serious thought, no.

 

Sherlock Holmes: The psychological analysis of handwriting. The upward strokes on the ‘p’, the ‘j’, the ‘m’, indicate a genius level intellect, while the  flourishes in the lower zone denote a highly creative, yet meticulous nature, but if one observers the overall slant and the pressure of the writing, there’s suggestion of acute narcissism, a complete lack of empathy, and a pronounced inclination toward-  

 

Professor James Moriarty: No.  

 

Sherlock Holmes: Moral insanity.
