Personality Correlation: The Placement of t-Bars and Fears of the Future

Written By: S.Sulianah

The consistency of the relationship between self-esteem and fears traits that complement each other is yet to be researched. The healthy self-esteem trait leading to optimism and overcoming fear of exploring opportunities; with the trait on limitation in self-esteem that coincide with fear to try opportunities of tomorrows to achieve goals.

From the compilation of 80 handwriting samples, I noticed the consistency of these traits complementing each other. These handwriting samples were extracted from a hundred over handwritings of undergraduates and working adults from social and educational events.

85% of the handwritings samples shows a high t-bar placement which typically signifies healthy or high self-esteem on the other hand showing other supporting traits that these individuals managed to overcome their past experiences and fears. They tend to look forward to what their future has available for them. This can be seen by their moderate spacing on their right margins. Other supporting handwriting traits signifying the above will not be highlighted in this article.

On the other hand, about 95% of the samples had shown low t-bars placement which identifies low/moderate self-esteem. This is in addition to the large space left on the right margin. The analysis shows that the individuals seems to be afraid of trying, or cautious before heading on to the possibilities that are there for them. The left slanted writing that seems to be pulling the letters away from the right supports the explanations. This is an interesting pattern that reflects how an individual is trying to encourage himself to try to move forward but was hold off due to the inhibiting fears, external influences or other factors affecting his decisions. This can be seen by how the slants are constantly pulling towards the left away from the lower baselines where it is supposed to head.

This research is yet to be explored in terms of practical aspects of the outcome. Even though Individuals were analysed and the results of analysis were confirmed to be accurate by them personally, its real life observations is yet to be explained.
