Hand Jive

Scout, who's just bored of studying and has therefore taken to personality analysis and writing odes to unavailable boys that she has fancied, blogged about an online handwriting analysis site. (The site emails the results of the analysis, which is kind of sucky, so thank you, Mailinator.com.)

For some reason, we are all suckers for character and personality analyses conducted by strangers (and with a good reason. I dare not ask people I know what they think about me.) Could it be that we feel their lack of intimate knowledge about us somehow gives them a glimpse of the "real" us? Or do we just like hearing good things about us?

For example, here are some of the good things the site says about me:

..a very aggressive personality toward others and quite frankly lacks a bit of respect for the space and property of other people

I think Mr. Graphologist overestimates the amount of respect I have for others.

..finds plenty of reasons to break the rules and get in trouble. (Okay, perhaps when he was younger, not anymore?)

This guy clearly knows way too much about me.

he blows things way out of proportion because that is the way he views them

I'VE TOLD YOU TEN MILLION TIMES I DON'T BLOW THINGS OUT OF PROPORTION!!!!!!

..is sarcastic. These sarcastic remarks can be very funny. They can also be harsh, bitter, and caustic at the same time.

Stop sounding like my middle school English teacher whose level of reading was lower than my level of reading in kindergarten.

Although there is room for improvement in the confidence catagery, his self-perception is better than average.

I maybe aggressive, prone to exaggeration, harsh, bitter and caustic but I have better than average self-perception! A mean a-hole who thinks no end of himself. Just great.

...has a temper. He uses this as a defense mechanism when he doesn't understand how to handle a situation

Oh, fsck off, Mr. Graphologist.
