Bradley Cooper got snubbed for Best Director. It you draw an X
Twitter user @smasey posed this inquiry on January 19, after spotting a quiz created by @cyanpotato that showed eight different variations of X's. She shared the conversation with her friends, which has now reached 71
they depict the letter, most shared that they write like # 7. But many of you wanted to know: What does that mean ? So we have certified master handwriting analyst Kathi McKnight-who has analyzed the signatures of everyone from Oprah to President Barack Obama-to break down what your X-writing style says about your personality.
And, it turns out, a lot of you have a rebellious streak.
If you were one of the many folks to share that you're # 7-which means you draw your X's by starting a stroke on the top left of the page, McKnight says you're moving 'not only in the norm, but writing your X's the' right 'way.
In the English language, she explains, this is considered the "balanced" way to move your pen. "Think about it." We start from cursive letter from left, and proceed to the right. "In print, we start at the top and stroke down," she says.
Anything else would be considered a "regressive stroke," which, according to handwriting analysis, reveals "rebelliousness, going back to the past, and negative self-talk," McKnight explains.
actual actual penmanship, it's a bit of a stretch to call this "handwriting analysis" since pressure, slant, and size are the key factors in determining personality. Still, McKnight says would draw an X.
So without further ado, here's what your X-choice says about you:
want to move forward, you have both feet stuck in the past.
If you draw both lines moving forward, yet starting in reverse-from bottom left, then the bottom right-you are a renegade. You have a strong desire to sling yourself out of your past and move forward, yet the past still has its grips on you.
The reversed strokes-starting top right-demonstrating that you're a rebel without a cause.
Because only your second stroke is "normal" way-top right to bottom left-it implies that while you're trying to to focus on the future, a part of you is still tempted to go backwards, as you drive while looking through the rearview mirror.
The First Half of this X-drawn from the top right to left revealing that you're a maverick.
Because you start your stroke from the bottom, and out of order, you're a trendsetter and you own it ,
This is how you were probably taught to write your letters, going from left to right. That indicates that you are not in line with the norm and you like order and balance.
Alright, so maybe this is not quite the same.
Like most of these choices (except # 7) insightful window into your soul as, say, years in therapy. But if you were as captive by those eight colorful X's as we were, hopefully now that you know the "correct" way to write to X, you'll have the final word in this great debate-and a little bit more insight into what something as small as a letter of the alphabet reveals about you.
