Infographic: What Does Your Handwriting Say About Your Personality?

Ever wondered what your handwriting says about your personality?

Independent and impartial studies have shown that more than 5,000 personality traits can be identified in a person’s handwriting. Long crosses on 't’s are supposed to suggest someone who is determined and enthusiastic, but also stubborn. Short crosses indicate the writer is lazy.
