Word Spacing

In our daily lives, we all require space. We require space to develop, to be ourselves, and to demonstrate our uniqueness. In a nutshell, space is essential in everyone’s existence. Some people require standard space, while others want less and still others desire a large amount of space. In handwriting analysis, the gap between words represents how much privacy you desire to maintain from those around you, and the distance between letters indicates the level of self-expression.

It’s natural for words to flow together as you gain more comfortable writing, and by the time you’re a young adult, spacing is an effortless habit whether you write cursive or standard style. You may not realize it, but the amount of space between your sentences reveals a lot about your personality. Your margins, or where you put your text on your page, reveal a lot about you.

The distances between letters, words, and lines of text are referred to as spacing. The writer’s feelings toward other people, his social conduct, and whether or not he thinks smoothly, his intellect, are all shown by the spacing. You, the ego, are represented by each word you write. Where you put the following word unconsciously shows where you place other people in relation to yourself. Do you like to surround yourself with words or people? Or do you like to keep them at arm’s length?

Word Spacing reveals actions around others.  Compressed word space necessitates proximity to others and a fondness for crowds. Avoiding social circumstances and human touch is implied by spaced out words. They would rather concentrate on a vocation or a pastime.

What does “normal” spacing entail? The distance between words and lines changes depending on the size and speed of your writing. Examining a large number of writings throughout time will give you a good notion of what the average person does the most of the time. The lack of abnormal is what defines “normal.” If the spacing does not appear to be exceptional, it is normal. When the spacing becomes excessively broad or narrow, or appears unusual in any way, it is considered “abnormal.” Specific spacing patterns are associated with specific meanings.

Overly Wide Spaces Between Words

Each word appears to be normal, but the space between them is very large. Putting a lot of space between words is the same as putting a lot of space between yourself and other people, and it indicates paranoia. People who write in this manner are unable to connect with others. They are suspicious and suspicious of others’ motives and intentions. They have no faith in anyone. They want to know why you want to be their friend. They are unable to become intimate. They keep you at a safe distance.

Overly Wide Spaces Between Letters

In such examples, the spacing between the characters is very large. Because so few individuals do this, it is incredibly unique and unusual. If you notice aberrant writing, it’s because the writer is abnormal (if you’re normal enough to know what normal looks like!). Instead of each word, the writer makes each letter represent himself in this case. The abnormal gap between each letter represents the unnatural distance he maintains between himself and others. As a result, this individual is socially isolated. The fact that the writer perceives himself as a letter rather than a word demonstrates his unusual detachment.

Overly Narrow Spaces Between Letters

When a person writes one letter unusually close to the next, it indicates that they are exceedingly tense and closed-minded, rather than open. He’s in a tense position by default, because when one’s handwriting is fluid and comfortable, it automatically broadens.

Closely Spaced Letters with Overly Wide Separations Between Words

A double negative whammy occurs when letters are closely spaced but words are far separated. The little spacing between letters show a person who is excessively self-conscious, while the large spaces between words reveal someone who is paranoid and incapable of closeness.

Cramped Letters and Cramped Spacing Between Words

Everything is in close proximity here. Remember that when letters are too close together, it denotes a tight-lipped and narrow-minded person. The writer does not maintain a healthy distance from others if the spacing between words are narrow. As a result, you’ll have someone who is narrow-minded and invading your personal space. Most of us have an imaginary geographical limit that we adhere to. People sitting in a restaurant facing each other, for example, have been observed to draw an imaginary line along the middle of the table that they each observe: “I don’t put my coffee or cigarettes on your side, and you don’t put yours on mine.”

Writers who produce such works writings may approach others too closely, touch them when they speak, and pat them on the back. You always take a step back from them. Alternatively, they may ask intimate questions that they should not. They are curious, intrude on your personal space, inquire as to how much you paid for items, and so on. It stems from a compulsive drive to be physically close to others, just as their words are jammed together.

Tangling Lines

Confusion is the result of tangling. One idea overlaps another thinking, just as one letter overlaps another letter or word. The more twisted the lines get, the more perplexing the situation.

Uneven Spacing

Uneven spacing is sometimes the result of a writer’s struggle with his work. Notice how your writing is even and flowing when you know exactly what you’re going to write. Your writing begins to lag and lose rhythm when you stop to consider what to say next—which adjective to use, how to spell a term. If a person’s handwriting is always out of sync, with some words close together and others far apart, it’s a symptom of low intelligence or intelligence that isn’t working well at the time.  Remember that “functional intelligence” refers to how intelligently a person is acting at the time, not his IQ score. Uneven spacing is a sign of skewed thinking and, at the time of the uneven writing, a lack of intelligence.

Generally Large Spacing Between Letters, Words, and Lines

If you write quickly, you’ll be able to cover more ground than if you write slowly. And if your writing is bigger, everything will be larger as well. Broad-mindedness is associated with large space. The individual becomes faster, more open-minded, and looser as the writing becomes faster, more open-minded, and looser. This personality attribute also reveals a generous spirit, an open attitude, and a willingness to let go.
