How to identify the Signs of Creativity and Genius in Handwriting

Creativity and Genius in Handwriting

There are several signs that reveal creativity and genius in handwriting but as the saying goes; “they are hiding in plain sight.” In short they may be there in the handwriting of your suspected genius but they won’t be obvious at first sight.

You see, while it helps to know what these signs are and what you should look for,  the real secret lies in the combination and prevalence of these signs.

In the past, it was presumed that genius was mostly about intelligence. Today it’s more complicated. We think of genius differently because we know that it is not confined to intelligence or intellectual superiority alone.

Today we appreciate that genius is giftedness of a very special nature that we can find in places where talent and expertise exist. These places are many and varied.

There are people in different walks of life who have special gifts in all kinds of areas such as art or literature, science or music, technology or finance, chess or sport.

Signs of Creativity in Handwriting

During my research while I was writing The Mark of Genius I discovered that there was a strong element  of creativity  in  almost every genius that I came across. This is  because genius and creativity go hand in  hand. They are both about new ways of thinking, conceptualizing and doing things.

Which is why these genius handwritings tended to display elements such as expressive freedom, originality, intelligent shortcuts, speed and that mercurial vibrancy that is one of the best give-aways.

Another thing that surprised me about the handwriting samples that I studied was that many of them showed zeal and passion.  These people were not merely dry as dust intellectuals.

Creativity and Inspiration

Of course true genius is a complex and rare phenomenon. But we can gain at least some understanding of it by tapping into our own creativity.

Sadly, many people have never found this within themselves. They go through life without ever suspecting that they have any  hidden creative ability.

Clearly we can’t all be highly gifted and we can’t all be geniuses. But each and every one of us has a spark of creativity within us – a spark that could ignite a special talent.

There’s a wonderful quote by Goethe that I have pinned up above my computer because it’s so inspirational:

It has a particularly important message because it reminds us that we can all tap into that special magic within us if only we are bold enough to take action on our dreams.

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

    In summary I’ve found the highly intelligent, creative person produces script that tends to be highly rhythmic, quite organized, composed of creative-legible letters, small letter formations (especially the middle zone), medium pressure with texture and with few angular letters and connections. Garlands and arcades dominate intelligent writers’ script. Sensitivity, modesty, even an element of shyness is usually prevalent.

    Thank you for your newsletter, it is a source of much interest for me.

    You may possess great ideas, but the way you are perceived by society, and the manner in which those ideas issue from your mouth may condemn them to fall dead at your feet.
    Depersonalized, they may soar beyond your vicinity and your country to great heights. Finally you may no longer be here to see, when their time has truly come.

      Hi Boghos
      Every great idea deserves to be expressed but sometimes it needs courage to reveal it to the world.
