Tracey Trussell of the British Institute of Graphologists explains in the The Independent that “His signature transmits wild ambition, dynamism, bravery and fearlessness … He’s hungry for power and has both determination and stubbornness in spades.” She claims that Mr. Trump’s style indicates that, despite his forceful nature, he is protective too, especially when it comes to his family. She added that her assessment of his writing style suggested he wasn’t much of a listener but “undoubtedly a tough negotiator – he excels at being hard lined, bold and direct” and also that “he’s not quite as inflexible potentially as people think”.Trump’s use of large letters indicates the writer is very outgoing and loves a lot of attention.

Some people have even mocked the president’s signature saying it looked like the results of a lie detector test.

However, Sheile Lowe says about John Biden that “The changeable slant and many loops suggest an emotional person who is flexible and able to deal with all kinds of people, making quick changes of direction as needed. His signature is congruent with the rest of his writing, plain and open, hiding nothing. What you see is what you get.

  1. Hi Carmen.
    I have a doubt: I have watched some videos on YouTube and read some information and I had understood that if you use a compound adjective you’ll need a noun after it. For example: ‘A power-hungry man’ or ‘I have a ten-year-old nephew’. However, in the book doesn’t mentioned it and they give examples like: ‘My cousin is pretty laid-back’.
    Thank you

  2. VERY INTERESTING COMMENT.
    Three are many different types of compound adjectives and the book is just focused on those ending in -ed or-ing. For these, a noun is not necessary and it depends on the grammar of the sentence. So after the verb TO BE you don´t use nouns.
    -Your sweets are mouth-watering
    -The new Iphone is a mouth-watering product
    -He is pretty laid-back BUT He has a pretty laid-back attitude.
    However, when you build a compound adjective with numbers, it makes sense to use a noun:
    -“I have a ten-year-old nephew.. OR my nephew is ten years old

    I don´t know if this is clear for you.
