I wonder why so many people keep searching my website for “fat girl handwriting!” I have had so many visitors looking for this particular term that I feel it’s time to dispel the myth.
Let me start off by saying that there is no such thing as “Fat Girl Handwriting”
It’s a total myth.
I did write a post some time ago about fat handwriting and that may be the cause for some confusion.
Possibly some folk feel that there is a connection.
But let me point out there is absolutely no connection between girls who are overweight and what I call “Fat Handwriting!”
Let me explain.
Fat handwriting, to be brief, is a phrase I coined to illustrate handwriting with a middle zone that is round and wide. There are both mature and immature versions.
This is what I wrote about it in Fat handwriting and Personality: “With the onset of maturity, this type of handwriting tends to change but the roundedness will probably remain to reveal a warm, emotional person who readily feels sympathy for others.”
Here is an example:
This type of handwriting is predominantly feminine handwriting and it usually shows a gentler type of personality as opposed to angular handwriting. It is often found among teenage girls who are clothes conscious and largely materialistic with a moderately artistic tendency. It usually goes together with circular i-dots.
Graphologist Irene Marcuse had this to say: “An excessively rounded style with a rightward slant indicates an emotional and altruistic person, one who is understanding and in sympathy with human nature. Demonstratively maternal women write a rounded style with heavy pressure.”
Now let us turn to “Fat Girl Handwriting” and see what we can make of it.
Fat Girl Handwriting
A girl who is overweight is above all an individual. She has a personality that could be complex or she could be easy-going. She could be outgoing and fun or she could be introverted and shy. She could be honest or deceitful, generous or stingy.
The main point is that she is a person first and foremost who happens to be overweight. Being overweight is not her personality. She may choose to do something about it in which case she will be strong willed. Or she may do nothing about it and give in to her problem in which case she is much less strong-willed.
Of course being overweight could possibly have some sort of impact on her personality over time in which case she could react by becoming insecure and shy. On the other hand she may over-compensate and become extroverted and loud.
I am trying to make the point that being overweight is not necessarily a personality issue. I have seen many thin, scratchy handwritings from overweight girls and many fat handwritings written by thin girls. So there is no correlation. An overweight girl does not necessarily have fat handwriting.
