How you craft letters and words can indicate more than 5,000 different personality traits, according to the science of graphology,
also known as handwriting analysis. To introduce students to the field, graphologist Kathi McKnight has them write She sells seashells by the seashore in cursive. Why cursive? Graphologists say it gives them a better read on a person. Try writing the same sentence now in
cursive (even if you usually print), then read on to see how graphologists might characterize you. (Note: Each analysis corresponds
to the handwriting sample to its right.)
