A Mouse Personality in Handwriting

Mouse Personality

The handwriting of the mouse personality is diametrically opposed to that of the Lion Personality.

Here you see a very small, almost microscopic handwriting which is also vertical. The letters are upright and do not lean to the right or to the left. In addition to this, the words are widely spaced.

When we put these handwriting indicators together, the overall picture we get is one of a person with an active intellectual life.

Not only does it show mental alertness; it also shows an intuitive awareness. But it is an awareness that will always be confined to a very small circle of well-known acquaintances.

As you can see from the tiny handwriting below, the mouse personality is shy, introverted and wary of people.


In addition to the small size, look at the wide spaces between the words and the left tendencies that pop up here and there.

In general the writing stays mostly within the safe confines of the middle zone and rarely peeps out! It is clearly not an outgoing handwriting and the writer being a typical introvert lacks a certain amount of social ease. It also shows modesty to the point of low self-esteem.

Someone with this type of handwriting tends to focus and concentrate very meticulously on the task at hand.

Check out the lion’s personality and you’ll see in an instant how different it is from the mouse’s personality!

      Good observation, Earl. Those t-strokes are quite telling of the mouse personality.

    Have observed a similar style in at least 3 individuals (although one writer slants more to the right). Introverted, yes. Depth of thought and intellect? Not so much. The overriding trait of those individuals? They shirk from responsibility and take on only exactly what they want to – no more than that. One of those persons has a fav phrase: “it makes me nervous to do ___.” The other individuals were in positions of relative non-importance that would generate a paycheck and no real responsibility. They do adopt timidity in their approach and I get a sense of their false humility. When I see this style of handwriting it tells me that they want to “hide” and let someone else take the risks.

      Interesting observations but at the same time it’s important to recognize that absolutely everything depends on the configurations of the specific handwriting sample. Some of the handwritings that fall into this group are highly intelligent mercurial types with exceptionally energetic thinking styles. So I cannot agree with a blanket generalization in this respect.
