Mozart’s Handwriting

Mozart, the famous child prodigy and composer of the Classical era, is the winner of my poll!  Please have a look at my handwriting analysis of him.

1. Mozart’s writing seems (though it is hard to tell from a picture and not a hard copy) to be heavy, especially in his signature.  It is dark and would probably leave indents on the other side of the paper on which he wrote.  This is a sign of emotional intensity.  Writers with this trait tend to feel all their emotions deeply and intensely.  Their emotions last for a long time, whether they be feelings of anger, love, excitement, etc.

2. Mozart must have had a quick and analytical mind, as evidenced by his pointy and v-shaped ‘m’s and ‘n’s.  This is a mark of a highly intelligent person who picks up information easily and sifts through it logically and skillfully.  These types of people are also very curious.

3. The figure-eight ‘f’s in Mozart’s writing reveal fluidity of thought. This is a common trait in writers, speakers, musicians, and dancers.  People with this stroke formation move easily from one thought to another without losing track of where they are, how they got there, and where they’re going.

4. Mozart’s lower-case ‘d’s look like Greek deltas: they form a circle at the baseline, flow upward over and to the left and do not retrace back down.  This trait is called the desire for culture and those with this trait appreciate and enjoy the finer side of life – they eat finely, dress finely, and of course have excellent taste in music, literature, etc.  (For an example of this, see the middle of the third line in the longer sample or what seems to be the same word in the second to last line.)

5. Notice the ‘y’s in Mozart’s signature: their down-stroke below the baseline veers out toward the right before curving back up instead of coming straight down.  This reveals a need for variety, especially in material and physical activities.  Those with this trait will never be happy doing the same thing day in and day out.  They seek a life of adventure, change and variety.

All the best,
