When She Said She Could Tell My Personality By Looking At My Writing, I Had To Test Her Theory

Everyone’s handwriting is different. But did you know that it is a mirror into your personality? If you’ve heard this before, you’ve probably been curious. I know I am. But I get curious about all the interesting personality tests. However, when you learn these tricks to analyze your handwriting, you’ll see that it reveals something deep within you. Write out a few sentences now and then go through the following steps. You’ll see how much of your personality comes through the words and letters you write.

After you have a few lines of handwriting to analyze, go through each of these points and see which one matches your writing. When you determine that, you can get a glimpse into your personality. We promise that this one will interest you and all your friends.

The slant

No slant: You are logical. You do not often make emotional decisions.

Right slant: You’re an emotional person. You value family. You’re friendly, and you love romantic stuff.

Left slant: You’re someone who’d rather curl up with a good book than go to a party. You lead a reserved life and prefer not to be bothered.

Letter size

Small letters: You’re more introverted and have good concentration.

Large letters: You focus on the people around you, and you have a desire to be understood.

Pressure

Light pressure: You’re a person who is in control. And if something changes, you can adapt.

Heavy pressure: You’re an emotional individual who sometimes *cough* overreacts.

Lower zone

Broad ‘Y’ Loop: You’re open and have a lot of friends.

Slender ‘Y’ Loop: You have few, very close friends.

Long ‘Y’ Loop: You love to travel.

Short ‘Y’ Loop: You love spending time at home.

Connection of Letters

Disconnected letters: You’re intelligent and have a strong intuition.

Connected letters: You make decisions quickly and often have a logical plan.

Upper Zone

Retracted ‘L’: You have a pessimistic outlook because a lot of your plans do not work out.

Looped ‘L’: You set firm goals and believe in your ability to accomplish them.

Retracted ‘T’: Your strength is self-control. You work very hard.

Looped ‘T’: You can’t take criticism.

Dots on the ‘I’

Small dot: You’re a perfectionist. And you like to keep your life free from clutter.

Circular dot: You have an active inner child and are artistic. You’re also one to stand out in the crowd.

Cross on the ‘T’

Low cross: You might have low aims in life.

High cross: Your self-esteem is high, and you aspire for the stars.

Word spacing

Narrow spacing between words: You have dependency issues with other people. You can’t be alone.

Wide spacing between words: You’re an independent individual who likes to avoid crowds.

Line spacing

Even spacing: You respected boundaries and understand conversations about them.

Little spacing: You have poor time management.

What did you find out about yourself? If you enjoyed it, ask your friends for a few written lines and then analyze their writing. Maybe you can tell them secrets about their personality that they didn’t know.

It Didn’t Use to Be This Way

One telling detail keeps escaping the men and women of words who would end school shootings by one expedient or another: gun control, better security, the arming of teachers, more careful vetting of potential gunmen and so forth.

The detail of which I speak: We didn’t use to endure this horror. It didn’t happen.

The urgent question that flows from this detail: Why not?

Well, to start with, because things were different, prior to the shooting fests, which break so many hearts and generate so much despair.

Right, yes — but different in what way?

I will take a crack at this: Our culture (as we have come to call the circumstances of daily life) was cooler, calmer, less emotional, more orderly than it has become since then — which is not the same as saying pre-massacre culture (what a term) was cool, calm, and unemotional. It was not. Those personally familiar with that culture know better, I hope, than to indulge in nose-honkings over the joys of the past.

Still, massacres, explosions of personal rage, were rare and generally connected with mental disorder, such as the case of Howard Unruh, the World War II vet who went wild in New Jersey in 1949, gunning down people on and off the street, including a barber and his 6-year-old customer. There were guns enough out there, no doubt; nevertheless, few thought of using them in today’s ghastly, almost customary, way.

We didn’t use to endure this horror. It didn’t happen (or, save for Howard Unruh, hardly ever).

I am still taking a crack at this thing, with no more deleterious effect, I hope, than would flow from an attack on the Second Amendment. I submit that the factor at which we should look for explanation is social control: its widespread presence in pre-massacre time and its absence in the present day.

I do not mean that the secret police ran life back then. I mean institutions did, more or less, and with a touch far lighter and more helpful, in most cases, than today’s advocates of liberation would admit under coaxing from a liberally applied cat o’ nine tails. Whee, we’re free! So goes the general apologia for the removal of rules and guidelines of all kinds.

Free we are, or there wouldn’t have been much point to America. Yet Americans, according to the manner of their (generally) British culture, acknowledged not just opportunities but obligations. Institutions took these obligations, and their (normally) gentle enforcement, with great seriousness and sense of duty.

Mothers and fathers were supposed to impart to children a sense of… well, plain old decent behavior would likely cover it. Churches posited their own senses of duty and right belief — often overlapping the teachings of parents. Schools, as virtually anybody who attended one in the pre-massacre era can testify, necessarily exerted forms of control. If they hadn’t, no teaching would have taken place.

Was it all done perfectly? Who’d make such a ridiculous claim as that? Of course it wasn’t done perfectly. Sometimes it was done wretchedly.

But we didn’t use to endure the horror of mass massacres. People didn’t fear taking their children to school. Now they do.

The real horror of the matter is the hand-waving futility the massacre debate engenders. No one can believe, with any depth of conviction, that tighter gun control laws would make life as safe as a public library story hour.

The rebuilding and refitting of our weakened institutions, public and private, is the only path toward peace. But how to bring that about? Through change in beliefs and commitments: which is where the heavy lifting begins, as old formulas for human flourishing (e.g., the indispensability of the two-parent family) are reinserted into the common life. Or, through human folly, not reinserted.

The fact is that too few acknowledge the unmatched power of benevolent institutions to shape character, maintain the general peace, and impart dignity to human life — as well as keep it safe and free. But they do. Or rather, they did: here, there — yes, and in Santa Fe, Texas.

You Will Be Loyal Or You Will Be Fired

A County Attorney in Kentucky is under fire for forcing state employees to donate to his campaign, while also being hit for supporting the release of names of sexual abuse victims.

Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell is facing down the barrel of an upcoming Democratic primary for his position, which will take place on May 22nd. He is currently being attacked on several sides of his poor behavior, with employees claiming in a suit about his “wrath” and coercion and an ad campaign being run to highlight his remarks on abused Boy Scouts.

So there are two things happening now: A wrongful termination suit, and a campaign highlight his take on sex abuse victims.

Mike O’Connell

According to his government profile, O’Connell has been involved as the County Attorney in Jefferson since 2008. Before that, he worked as a judge and in private practice.

O’Connell was also a member of the Kentucky Bar Association’s ethics committee. In his profile, it states:

“Mike has pushed for practices that hold everyone in the system to a high level of accountability and a level playing field within the system.”

Ah, that’s nice. What a sin he never applied any of his highfalutin ideals elsewhere.

If you’re an NHL fan, Mike is not to be confused with Mike O’Connell, former GM of the Bruins.

Former Prosecutor Fires Wrongful Termination Suit

Glenda Bradshaw once worked in the County Attorney Office, and the formerly high-ranking prosecutor filed a suit claiming that she was fired improperly and that O’Connell had his employees so terrified of being let go that they would donate to his upcoming election campaign fund in order to keep their jobs.

According to Bradshaw, O’Connell would compare his employee lists to donor lists before making decisions on promotions.

When O’Connell’s campaign was asked about the lawsuit, the reply was a standard form letter:

“I am thankful for the campaign support I have received from all walks of our community. I am humbled that some of my staff have supported my re-election because they know firsthand the good work we perform daily.”

Another former attorney in the office, a woman named Kara Lewis said that she was fired for “no reason”… except that she refused to donate to the campaign.

Her firing occurred during a working day, where she was taken from a courtroom and told she would no longer be involved in caseroom. Lewis said:

“[My firing] affected my career, it affects my family. It had a horrible effect on my life… a horrible impact on us financially.”

The firing took place one month after O’Connell was re-elected in 2010 after five years in the office.

Mike O’Connell Wants To Release Names of Abused Boy Scouts

In the last few weeks, O’Connell has been on blast for arguing that the names of alleged abuse victims ought to be published. The incident is still before the courts, and O’Connell has been arguing on behalf of the Louisville police youth program that was allegedly abusing Boy Scouts involved in a program offered by the police.

While speaking to media, O’Connell said last year that at least one of the former Scouts should not be allowed to remain anonymous while filing the suit against two former officers who are being hit with both civil and criminal charges. It will level the “playing fields” to publish the names.

Checking out the reviews on his official page, one posted last month came from a local who declared that she would never vote for him again. The trouble is connected to a recent spat where O’Connell suggested that he might support releasing the names of rape victims, including children:

I am shocked, dismayed and deeply troubled over your recent suggestion to list the names of rape victims that are actually underage teenagers. Why would you want to victimize them all over again? Isn’t this abusive? They trusted the police who ran this program and unfortunately, a few of these male police officers were perverted predators.

Right now, television ads are running to highlight O’Connell’s remarks. The advertisements are being paid for by Metro Councilman Brent Ackerson, who is running against O’Connell in the Democratic primary.

New Study Shows Smarter Brains Run on Sparsely Connected Neurons

(From ScienceDaily.com)

The more intelligent a person, the fewer connections there are between the neurons in his cerebral cortex. This is the result of a study conducted by neuroscientists working with Dr Erhan Genç and Christoph Fraenz at Ruhr-Universität Bochum; the study was performed using a specific neuroimaging technique that provides insights into the wiring of the brain on a microstructural level.

The new findings provide an explanation of conflicting results gathered in intelligence research to date. For one, it had been previously ascertained that intelligent people tend to have larger brains. “The assumption has been that larger brains contain more neurons and, consequently, possess more computational power,” says Erhan Genç. However, other studies had shown that — despite their comparatively high number of neurons — the brains of intelligent people demonstrated less neuronal activity during an IQ test than the brains of less intelligent individuals.
