Vijay Mallya, Mathew Hayden's brush with Jealousy- Can handwriting help measure the extent of it ?

 I will just start with narrating some of the recent items that were in news recently.

Sachin Tendulkar was recently conferred with Order for Australia. Order of Australia is an honorary decoration to recognize Australian citizens and other persons for achievement or for meritorious service. While this news was greatly received by large section of people but there were a few who couldn’t take this news well. Consider these comments for instance-

Mathew Hayden, former Australian cricketer recently remarked-
"I think it should be exclusive to Australians. There's things that are sacred amongst our country. I kind of understand the point of the fact that he has been such an iconic figure here in Australia and there's an enormous population of Indian's that are working here and living here very happily and in harmony with Australia that have naturalised and I think that's a great part of our country, how multi-cultural that we are.
Now, if Sachin was living in Australia - give him the Prime Minister's gong I reckon - but the reality of it is he's living in India."
In an another news, Vijay Mallya, whose Kingfisher Airlines is actually going through troubled times recently found himself out of the Forbes billionaire’s list. Not to take this as a setback, Mallya is known to have tweeted-
 "Thanks to the Almighty that Forbes has removed me from the so called Billionaires list. Less jealousy, less frenzy and wrongful attacks"

Both of instances have something in common. Tendulkar getting an unexpected recognition from the Govt. of Australia had some prominent citizens (read: Hayden) fuming especially the ones who have themselves not gotten the recognition despite being from the same field as Tendulkar's. Can reaction from Hayden be termed as one motivated by Jealousy ?
On the other hand, there Vijay Mallya, who had everyone in awe with his business sense and lifestyle only till recently when the current crisis of Kingfisher airlines just made him lose a lot of respect. In the above quote, he states that he feels thankful to be out of Billionaire's club as he would have to deal with less Jealously, of other things.

Jealousy can be seen as one of common human traits. Remember as a kid, when one sees mother carrying and cuddling any other child, the kid gets restless as if someone has taken his or her's valuable possession.

Wikipedia defines Jealousy as-
Jealousy is an emotion and typically refers to the negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity, fear, and anxiety over an anticipated loss of something that the person values, particularly in reference to a human connection. Jealousy often consists of a combination of presenting emotions such as anger, resentment, inadequacy, helplessness and disgust.

To dissect this further, i would say Jealousy-
- an negative emotion
- it is synonyms with the feeling of insecurity
- is quite akin to feeling of losing something so dear to you.
- can result in feeling of anger/resentment
- May cause a feeling of helplessness
- is an emotion expressed in anticipation

There is a subtle difference between envy and Jealousy. Envy is always a bit forward sounding word, in the sense that, envy results when you so badly want something that you have seen others have but Jealousy is more of a fear of losing something.
With this, one can debate whether Mathew Hayden's reaction to Sachin's recognition was more of envy than jealousy but
this is something only Hayden can tell.

Coming to Handwriting analysis, there is a certain way to ascertain the presence of Jealousy in an individual's handwriting. It can be determined by looking at the presence of a tight beginning loop at the start of the word, a loop that is small and a closed circle.

You know what to look for in Mathew Hayden's handwriting in case you get an access to the sample.
