Some facts on doodles:
- Persons who have creative talent, or believe they have artistic talent, doodle a wider variety of items and more frequently than people who do not believe they have artistic talent.
- People who doodle scribbles have low self-esteem, are confused, and frequently have a lot of issues. A potentially violent person who is in a state of severe frustration, is non-directed, and is feeling highly angry would scribble with angularity.
- Doodling anything terrible, awful, tormented, ghastly, monstrous, or depicting evil or death implies a tormented person who is unhappy and capable of antisocial behavior.
- Doodling on anything that comes to hand, especially anything unsuitable like newspapers, magazines, schoolwork, walls, buildings, or books, suggests antisocial thoughts and conduct as well as a desperate need to be seen and heard.
- Doodling on one’s body and obtaining tattoos are both expressions of a desire to stand out from the crowd and to show off one’s originality. It shows a drive to self-destruct if it is overdone.
- People that doodle in their leisure time are frequently artistically inclined.
- People who are easily bored may often start doodling on whatever paper is available.
- People who find themselves doodling the same things over and over often believe they lack artistic ability. These folks tend to doodle the few things they believe they are capable of drawing well.
- People who shade in own doodle shapes are sensual, whereas those who accidentally shade in existing letters or shapes suggest unexpressed sensuality. People who consciously fill in letters or forms are usually trying to stay inside a structure or impose constraints on themselves at the time, rather than being adventurous and creative.
- Detail, symmetry, and balance in doodles indicate that the doodler is feeling productive, organized, and law-abiding.
- People who make doodles with random lines or drawings that lack balance and symmetry are feeling unorganized, aimless, irresponsible, and possibly wayward.
- People who doodle infrequently, if at all, tend to limit their creative expression and prefer to express themselves in words rather than visuals.
Here are some commonly made doodles and their interpretation on the writers:
|Boxes – By far the most frequent doodle, boxes come in an infinite variety of sizes, dimensions, and numbers. The presence of boxes indicates a desire to be productive. If the boxes are three-dimensional, it means you can see all sides of a problem.|
|Triangles – The second most common doodle seen worldwide is a triangle. They reflect a rationalistic mindset and a willingness to see things reach a conclusion.|
|Arrows – Arrows represent feelings of ambition, motivation, and drive.|
|Haphazard lines – Undirected, fragmented, without structure or purpose, furious, and frustrated doodlers draw aimless lines that don’t form any particular shape or travel in all directions with no rhyme or reason|
|Stars – Hopefulness, optimism, and a forward-looking or upward-looking attitude are all represented by stars.|
|Circles – Circles are formed by making circular movements and hence convey a more passive mood than angles. They are linked to feelings of sociability, talkativeness, and friendliness, as well as a desire to be adaptable and loving.|
|Hearts – In most situations, the doodler is thinking about love.|
|Flowers – Flowers symbolize our feminine side, our desire to see growth, nature, and reproduction. The doodle indicates a sense of family and connection if the flowers are in an arrangement. People who dream of flowers, according to noted psychologist Carl Jung, frequently have a need to express emotion that they are unable to express openly at the time.|
|Food – Drawing food or drink denotes a yearning for affection, as well as a wish to be filled up. Of course, it could also be a sign of thirst or hunger.|
|Animals – Doodles of animals usually indicate a person’s sensitivity to life things. The type of animal doodled reveals a lot about the doodler’s attitude and, in some cases, the type of person she aspires to be. Slowness, a lack of self-confidence, and introverted traits are indicated by doodles of weak, meek, or little animals. Feelings of assertiveness are represented by doodles of ferocious creatures such as tigers and lions. Doodles of lively creatures like otters and monkeys imply a doodler who enjoys having a good time. Doodles of fast-moving animals usually symbolize a wish to flee as soon as possible.|
|Transportations – Doodles depicting cars, boats, trains, wagons, buses, and other modes of transportation express a desire to move away or attain a goal. The more the urgency to make a point or drive away, the faster the sort of vehicle doodled. People who are bored with their occupations are sometimes seen doodling autos.|
|Houses – Doodles of houses and structures show the doodler’s attitude about his personal life. Houses should obviously include doors and windows that allow the resident to see out while also allowing others to see into him. The doodler has a cheerful and positive attitude toward his home life if he has a warm and attractive dwelling that seems lived-in’ with smoke rising from the chimney and the like. A dwelling that is austere, plain, or chaotic implies that the doodler has a negative relationship with his home life.|
|Trees – The tree is a symbol for our egos and desires. A healthy tree is huge, robust, and sturdy, with a balanced trunk size in relation to the top portion, full, and alive. A tree with leaves and fruit suggests that the doodler is connected to love, sex, and children. Depression and a lack of battling spirit are indicated by bare, drooping branches. The doodler is staring down rather than up. A tree with no roots represents the doodler’s sense of being without roots (or it may indicate that the doodler is not good at drawing).|
|People – Doodlers who solely draw profiles of people frequently dislike their appearance or believe they are unable to draw adequately. Hands and feet, as well as a face, should be depicted in a full form that is proportionate. Not sketching hands on one’s doodle represents a sense of being unable to do things, of not having a hand in things; not drawing feet represents a sense of not belonging anywhere, of not having roots. The importance of the face, particularly the expression on it, cannot be overstated. A grin is attractive, however a scowl is not. All of a person’s facial features should be visible.|
A person who is missing parts of their face feels fragmented, not whole, and faceless. The doodler feels careful, suspicious, and as if he must have eyes on all sides of his head when he emphasizes or draws only eyes. Doodling ears usually indicates that the doodler feels compelled to pay too much attention to someone.
