ELIZABETH TAYLOR'S HANDWRITING ANALYSED
GRAPHOLOGY ANALYSIS- 'THE WRITE GUY'
Handwriting Analyst, Graphology Analysis
If you are a fan of Elizabeth Taylor, then you might find this both wonderful and perhaps some of it not so wonderful. Personally, I’m not a fan of Elizabeth Taylor because most of her biggest movies were before my time. However you can’t go through a grocery store without seeing her face on the cover of a magazine for the many marriages and the diseases that ultimately took her life in old age so I’m not without knowledge of her beauty at a young age and her struggles at an older age. Let’s get to the handwriting.
The first thing that you’ll notice which is a little bit unusual is her slant is extremely to the right side of the page. In the past 15 years, I think it’s rare to find a writer with such a heavy right hand in today’s society and when you do, you find an extraordinarily expressive and interesting individual.
The next thing is the long, vertical extenders that go up in the air much like a child raising his hand in the air. That is textbook definition of desire for attention. Now not everyone that has desire for attention becomes an actress or a celebrity but in this case I think it matched her personality very well. If you move to the center of the page, you see the word ‘very’ and there is actually a very rigid upstroke with no angles in it. Although this is not common in her handwriting, I do see it once and that is the trait of resentment in the mundane area which means angry about something that’s happening now. So we have to do some research to find out when this was written but there is some unresolved anger there.
The rest of the entry strokes have a hook which do not mean resentment because they’re curved and all those little hooks are desire to acquire. If you look to the lower left-hand corner of the page, I’ve said beginning hooks equals acquisitiveness which essentially is needing, desiring material items. Most people that have this will object to the word materialistic however from an outside observer, one would say that collecting things makes them feel secure. So depending on your value in society, you might find that an offensive statement that someone has a desire to acquire or you might see it as a need for stability and substance.
If we move on to the letter ‘o’, we see that she does not have consistent o’s and this is good information to have. If half of the o’s are clear and unfettered, half of the time she is blunt and honest. If half of the time she has an outward loop to the right, that means half of the time she is secretive. So with contextual with who she gets around of how honest she is to them.
One of my favorite traits of Elizabeth Taylor’s handwriting is the persistent letter’ T’. If you look at the word “dearest” and you look at the very last word, you’ll see this ‘t’ that looks like a sheriff’s badge. It looks like the star. That is persistence. It is dominant. That is the downward slant and it is powerful which means there is no sarcasm. She gets what she wants.
If you look at some of the t-bars there are points. Some of them don’t have points. Both of them are dominant and some are domineering but I will say I can imagine she would be “hell on wheels” if she did not get her way because anyone with this much persistence, this much determination, and this much passion is going to get what they want. So I would have to think that her spouses throughout the years have seen the ugly side of Elizabeth Taylor as she is both a perfectionist and incredibly determined.
The longest enders would indicate big physical drives. I’m not sure when this handwriting sample was written but it’s amazing to have that good of a physical drive even at the age of 70 or 80 years old. So it’s not just sex drive but it’s also energy. So she was very active and obviously needed someone to keep up with her both in the sexual arena but also just in a daily activity. It wouldn’t surprise me if she got up at 5:00 AM and went to bed at midnight.
On the lower right-hand side you see the word “school.” I only see this once or twice but there is a small stinger and that of course is an issue with strong men, probably an attraction to strong, handsome men, not that we’re not attracted to handsome and beautiful people but in this case there is a slight resentment and maybe some daddy issues that go along with that because of the stinger.
The majority of the shape of her m’s and n’s are what they call arcade. That’s a style that you’ll see in Gestalt graphology and arcade in between is the opposite of analytical but the top of the m’s are very, very pointed. When you see the top of m’s pointed, you see a high level of intellect and the ability to sort and digest information. If you see arcades at the bottom, you see a high degree of femininity. That’s one of the overall Gestalt traits of arcade writing, especially arcade writing that has this level of slant and this level of baseline; a feminine, arcade writing.
