I'm not going to post mine, but I basically have doctor handwriting, and I write pretty small. An English teacher in hs once(half-jokingly) called me out in class, because she could never read my homework lol. After that I had to type everything.
No fair....

BTW, did you know that Forgery Specialists say that the "cute" messy, sloppy and wild signature that many of us sign our names with, thinking we are making a very original and difficult-to-copy moniker, is actually far easier to forge than something like my example?

Thank you, brother. I love your pen skills.
Thanks. I USED to love my skills, myself. Not anymore. I wasn't kidding when I said that short note took me all of a full minute. I "draw" my letter more these days than actually writing them.

I can write more neatly, but this is an example of my every-day writing quality. I apologise, my camera phone is terrible.

Nice! My sister's handwriting is similar to yours.

Really, Abing? That's cool. My handwriting is pretty much the same as it was when I was in Year 4 (after getting my pen licence, of course). It's interesting how some things don't change over 20+ years.

I'm interested, Crosstweed. What can you deduce from our handwriting, alone?
YES, I wanted to ask this too... xD xD
:rolleyes: Says "No judgment!" about her handwriting... wants me to make judgments based on her handwriting...

LOL
There's quite a lot of information there and I don't have time at the moment to submit a proper "analysis." Also, I'm not a pro, so cut me some slack LOL. Here's what I've got at the moment...

For starters, you're both blatantly right-handed.

AZ's handwriting is plain as day female student handwriting (late HS through recent college graduate). There is some attention to attempting form ("l", "y", "g", etc, are looped and flowy for fun, aesthetic reasons), but it's not strict or formal at all because most students don't practice their hand... and even if they do, don't have time to use form when they do write x). Frequent use (usually from school) and age has resulted in a steady hand, and therefore unstrained letters without quivers in them. Probably a med. writing speed.

Tintin, I suspect your note was written med. to med-slow speed? Form = clearly important to you. It looks like you've looked at some older handwriting styles and possibly borrowed from them for your own? Modern school-taught cursive, even when it's crossed over with print like your's is, is normally more looped than your handwriting is, but that could just be because you're a guy. Some guys don't like the rounded letters and loops (your "g's" and "y's", for example) as much as girls do, in my experience (it's probably not "masculine" to do that :rolleyes: ). It looks "post-school" - fairly well-developed style, but looks like it hasn't been practiced as much lately?

*shrugs*
Mine thoughts.

I'm actually left-handed. Very much a lefty. My note was written at a moderate speed and yes, I've borrowed from some older handwriting styles to create my own (possibly it was more subconscious than conscious). Yes, I'm a guy and a child of the 80s, but I don't think I was trying to be masculine, that's just the style I arrived at. This handwriting style of mine is essentially the same as it was when I finished Year 4 in primary school (the only change over time is that the I've reduced the size of my writing since then). I haven't practiced handwriting since I left primary school. Overall, I think you did an admirable job in analysing my handwriting. Well done!

LOL Thanks. Now that I'm looking really closely at your commas, the "Y" in "year", and a few other things, I'm starting to detect the lefty a little bit.

LOL In my defense, you're an Aussie. xD

Now I'm curious about whether or not Abigail is a righty or a lefty.

Wow nice! Lol, I'm a fast writer, actually, but I rarely write nowadays because... cellphones and Siri! I agree I find it hard writing Y and G lol, I like to make big loops because they look fancy but I always fail at that! Lol. I basically stopped writing after graduating in college, that was close to 8 years ago lol.
