The simple rules for Better handwriting

Be Legible : Write to be read

The prime purpose of writing is to read. It crystallize one’s thought as a means of communication. The letters should be easily and accurately recognized. The message too should be very clear. Unreadable material cause strain to the reader, cause misunderstanding, delay and above all, leaves a negative impression on the mind.

Be Fluent : Get the speed, don’t be rough

It is necessary to write reasonably fast rather than snail writing. Writing skills need to be mastered as the written material in today’s time has considerably doubled requiring more time and speed. Hence, write fairly quick but keep a watch that your handwriting is legible so as to be eligible. Writing should be with interest, pleasurable, without strain and written in a relaxed mood.

Beauty : Be an Impressive writer

Beautiful handwriting impresses the reader. Be a beautiful writer as it is an object of admiration. It is a visual treat and feasting to the eye of the reader. It reveals personal taste and preference. Calligraphy or artistic handwriting is not required in day to day writing but simple, graceful hand written work is more attractive. It exposes clarity and is catchy to the eye.


Handwriting : Large Letters indicate an outgoing, positive person, friendly, sympathetic and helpful. Large writing reveals an extrovert personality. Indicative of a restless nature and a lack of depth in thinking sometimes.

Small letters are produced by negative persons. They tend to be slow in responding to other people’s needs and feelings. Cold and logical, these people are likely to have a scientific bent of mind. Writing which is very small, almost difficult to read, reveals a highly introverted person. Inward looking and reserved, this person seems to be non communicative. Not likely to have close friends.

Medium size letters are produced by people of average tastes, accomplishments and abilities. Though they may not unduly exert themselves to help you, we find them easy to get along with. Practical, concerned with materialistic things rather than spiritual or aesthetic.

Letters of variable sizes represents an immature personality. Incapable of indecisive thinking and action, ready to believe others, tends to be self centered to the point of being childish.
