Handwriting Analysis #1: [Base of the Personality] (1/3) Emotionally Withdrawn | APDaga
I have learned handwriting analysis (Graphology) in my college days and now I have decided to share my knowledge about handwriting analysis with all of you guys. 

The intention of sharing handwriting analysis knowledge is pure and to help other curious minds like me. Please make use of it for the betterment of society and the world. As all of you know "With great power & knowledge comes great responsibility

Click Here to check out all other Handwriting Analysis traits.


  • Our handwriting is a reflection of our personality at the moment. Your handwriting doesn't speak about your future. So, don't expect that you will be doing future predictions using handwriting analysis. 

  • You can know the present state of your mind with handwriting analysis and improve it or make it better with practice and hard work in the proper direction. 

  • Any trait does not indicate anything white or black in your personality. Everyone is unique and their personality is made up of a combination of multiple traits.

  • and the most important thing to remember is "A person's personality changes over the period." If you see something negative in someone's personality that doesn't mean that's permanent."

Base of Personality:

The base of your personality reveals your true nature. It gives an insight into your emotional response to various situations and circumstances. It also reveals your temperament. Your tendency to hold n to different aspects of life comes to the surface.

Slant in handwriting talks about Emotional Response, Emotional Outlay & Social Aptitude. It can be categorized into 3 types:
  1. Emotionally Withdrawn

  2. Emotionally Responsive

  3. Ambivert

Type of Slants:

There are 5 main types of slants. From left to right, the 5 categories go like FA, AB, BC, CD, DE, E+.
The below image will give your a clear idea about all 5 slants.

The FA slant is again subcategorized into 2 sub-types:

Extreme FA & Proper FA slant | Handwriting Analysis - apdaga
Extreme FA & Proper FA slants
  • Extreme FA: (<55 degrees)
    • FA traits towards the extreme side
  • Proper FA: (>55 degrees & <90 degrees)
    • It is again a FA trait but comparatively lesser than Extreme FA.

Here, we will talk about Emotionally Withdrawn.

Emotionally Withdrawn:

Emotionally Withdrawn | Handwriting Analysis - apdaga
  • Shown by a consistent leftward slant - Extreme FA, Proper FA & AB slant

  • The upstrokes and slant are a minimum of 90 degrees from the baseline.

  • An introvert. (The smaller the writing size, the more introverted)

  • This person keeps his own counsel, rarely expresses feelings, and makes logical, unemotional decisions.

  • The FA writer has regressed into himself and is unable to show emotion. This condition may be temporary, or it can become permanent. People with a left slant are very self-centered. There is no room for anyone else.

  • The vertical AB writer has no need to show emotions. He is head-ruled and will make decisions based upon the premise of, "What's in it for me?" A sad story and tears will have no effect on the decisions this person makes.

  • NOTE: The person with a slightly right slant BC is still head ruled, and even though he will listen to a sad story, his decision will be based on logic.
