Graphology (Handwriting Analysis)/Unusual lower zone slant


Hi, what does it mean when letters such as g and y are the last letter in the word and do not have lower zone loops but a straight line that is extremely slanted to the left so it almost underlines the word it belongs to? (Gs and ys within words have normal loops). Thanks.

Dear Brian,
Thank you for your inquiry. Such leftward movement as you describe at the end of a word sometimes indicates obstinacy or a contrary nature (if there are a lot of angles in the writing). It may often be an unwillingness to let go of the past , old ideas or habits.
Keep in mind, there might be other features in the writing which mitigate the degree of resistance to change or to moving ahead.

I can answer questions regarding personality traits, talents and abilities, character, state of mind, mental and to some degree, physical health. I can answer questions about intelligence, compatibility with another person, honesty or deceptiveness. I can not answer or determine a writer's age, race, sexual identity,religious affiliation, guilt or innocence in a particular crime (except in cases of forgery), although I can determine the likelihood of writer's being capable of committing a crime.


I have been practicing in the field of graphology since 1976, having been privately tutored by Judith Ballard, the only known professional graphologist in the area at the time. I was certified by the American Association of Handwriting Analysts in 1978, after completing and passing their examinations. Most of my work has been on a volunteer basis, but I've been hired for various purposes on a case-by-case basis.

I taught a non-credit course in graphology at Highline Community College in Washington State, where I earned an A.A. degree in psychology.

Past/Present Clients
No current clients. In the past, clients included local employers, one prison matron(on a personal contract), three local restaurant/lounge locations (where I "entertained" customers to gather samples for research).These were; Jim Moore's Steak house, Diamond Jim's and Latitude 57. I wrote a column answering write-in queries from readers, though I can't recall the name of the publication. (It was a long time ago).
