STAWAR: Loopy signatures


6. Dots: Dotting your “i” with a picture suggests creativity. A straight line for a dotted “i” reflects a hurried pace. The lack of a dot suggests inattention to detail, while a perfectly placed one reflects compulsive features. A dot high over the stem may indicate ambition.

7. Showiness: A highly embellished signature, while egotistical and attention-seeking, can occasionally indicate underlying feelings of inadequacy. Such signatures are common for people working in the arts, show business or psychology. 

I’m not sure I really believe any of this graphology business, but I still wouldn’t want a doctor who dots his “i’s” with smiley faces.
