Will you analyze my Handwriting ?

This is one of the most common questions that i get asked in this forum. So, i thought i will write a bit of my perspective around this here.
I took up Handwriting Analysis as a passion and something i got inclined to naturally during my early days. I did self-learn for quite some time and then ventured out to complete a professional qualification in Handwriting Analysis.

This is certainly something i want to do more and more of but as you would guess by the frequency of update in this blog that i haven’t fully been able to do the justice to it. I want to update this blog more frequently but more often it turns out to be a challenge to figure out the time post work. But i will still continue to update this as much and as fast and accurately as i can in the near future.

When i get asked the question "Will you analyze my handwriting ?", a part of me want to jump to the opportunity as there is something new to learn in every signature or handwriting sample, other part (which tends to be more objective) tells me to figure out the time before you make the commitment. More often, the later part wins.

I would like to add another perspective here. When i completed the professional qualification in handwriting analysis, i thought to take this up professionally (may be part time). But i did not choose to pursue the same, thinking that it would likely kill the joy i get. Over the years as i grew and started becoming more aware of things around, i started getting connected with some of the social causes (not because its fad, but i really wanted to for the reasons i can share if you like to hear). In my association, i always felt more of the people who drive these efforts are always short of cash or they cannot take up more just because they do not have steady flow of cash.

The various events that took place started compelling me to raise money for such organizations and thus the idea about using my skill in Handwriting Analysis to raise money was born. Though i realize it won’t raise mammoth funds but something is always better than nothing or than being just a mute spectator around. Also this will help me channelize the learnings about Handwriting Analysis towards making a little difference to someone's life. To know what we did in 2014 with the funds i gathered from all my hobbies, please do look here.

So, if you ask me "Will you analyze my handwriting ?", i would request you to read this post and get back to me if you are still interested. I probably am not asking for a huge sum here (and if you are my friend/known to me i might ask you to give whatever you feel is ok :-)) and i have observed that the gains of getting the handwriting analyzed are plenty if done properly. This is one science that helps you connect with your inner self and can potentially tell you a lot more about yourself. There is even a part of this science called as "Grapho-Therapy", which helps bring the change in you by practicing and changing the strokes of your handwriting. If you are wondering about what i wrote, yes one can change handwriting and change certain aspect of one's personality but it requires practice as is needed with any change.

If you are interested to know what type of analysis, reports i will generate and associated reasonable costing, please email me at
My Facebook page also has some information around the work we do. Do visit and Like (if you really like the stuff there:-)

Note: Please do not view this post as a sort of Self-promotion. Just wanted to put things in perspective and for that some facts needed to be mentioned.

Signature Speaks: Steve Jobs and Charity- Not quite poles apart!

The Wikipedia page on Steve Jobs says-
After Bloomberg accidentally published Jobs' obituary in 2008, Arik Hesseldahl of BusinessWeek magazine noted that "Jobs isn’t widely known for his association with philanthropic causes", compared to Bill Gates' efforts.[89] After resuming control of Apple in 1997, Jobs eliminated all corporate philanthropy programs.

After i came across the above information, I starting feeling quite intrigued. Several thoughts started running in my mind like-
- For a man who is so widely admired for his absolute genius, shouldn’t he be "expected" to be good at giving as well.
- Like all we know about Steve Jobs, he wont do anything unless he total sure of a perfection. May be Charity is an aspect he would like to do differently like he has approached each and every thing about his work.
- For a man who is so admired for his single mindedness may be he would think about the Charity with his legendary single mindedness now since he is retired.

Nobody could deny the fact that Steve is so whole-heartedly involved with Apple and the turn- around could not have been possible if he had not put his entire energies to uplift the company when he re-joined in 1997. If we take out the condition for Public giving, it was well known that Jobs took a One dollar-a-year salary from Apple before stepping down as CEO (though he earned his fortune through Stock options).

Lets look at a different view to this situation i.e. Does Steve Jobs's Handwriting or Signature throw any light on this (giving) aspect of his personality ?
The Signature sample of Steve Jobs shows a long final stroke at the end, extending to the right by 45 degrees or more. This is especially shown in the last letter "n" of the first name.

Such a characteristic in handwriting is the representation of Generosity. One more aspect of Steve Job's signature reflects Generosity (though it would have been better to check with larger sample of handwriting) and its the specing between the words. Generosity is also reflected by larger spacing between words and letters.
Generosity is willingness to share. Generally such a person derives happiness by being generous to others.

So, it is evident that Steve Job's Signature reflects Generosity. Its not that there are no records of Jobs not being involved in Public Giving as Andrew Ross Sorkin says in his article
While many high-growth technology companies have philanthropic arms, Apple does not. It does not have a company matching program for charitable giving by its employees like some other Fortune 500 companies. The company did donate $100,000 in 2008 to a group seeking to block Proposition 8, a ballot measure that would have banned same-sex marriage in California.

This may be one of this hidden trait of his that he will bring about in public sooner than later. And who knows, like some people, he may be keeping his involvement in Charitable causes a secret. The same secretness he is so vividly known to have kept till the launch day of iconic products.
Watch out world, till this secret unveils!
