Steve Ballmer's Signature Sample:

A note about Steve Ballmer's Signature Sample:
I got this sample from one of my friends who had worked in Microsoft for a long time. He had received one Achievement trophy, which had this Signature. This is Picture of the signature. In such a sample which is ingrained in the trophy some of the aspects of the signature becomes unclear. One of such things is Pressure, which i cannot comment on. Other minute things related to the size of letters, formation may get little misformed because someone else actually does the job of rendering the Signature onto the Physical Trophy. So in this write-up, i would keep things rather simple and comment only on the trait that is a more certainly interpreted.

What’s in Steve Ballmer's Signature that explains what you saw in the video ?
One of the prominent things in the video is the raw energy exhibited by Steve Ballmer. There is one trait in his Signature that explains to some extent the source of this raw energy. This trait is called Enthusiasm and it really stands out in his Signature. defines Enthusiasm as "Great excitement for or interest in a subject or cause. It is a source or cause of great excitement or interest." Enthusiasm is great eagerness to be involved in a particular activity which you like and enjoy or which you think is important. Real Enthusiasm is contagious, it rubs off on everyone it touches. If you are a Speaker, Enthusiasm is one trait that goes a long way in positively influencing the audience. This is what happens when Steve Ballmer addresses huge gatherings. People find his act funny and full of energy and are mostly likely to stay glued to what he has to convey. His Enthusiastic act plays as an Ice Breaker and establishes some sort of connect with the audience.
Enthusiasm is one of the Key Success traits. It is the enduring emotion of excitement.

Enthusiasm in handwriting is revealed by a Extremely long horizontal "t" bar in relation to the rest of the handwriting.

Wishing you a Happy Enthusiastic New Year!

  1. I enjoyed your entries on Toxic Words - such great thoughts and a wonderful reminder to watch the words I use - to be positive and kind and use words to build up rather than tear down. :)
