The Colour of Ink
Handwriting is created virtually anywhere and at any time and, generally speaking tends to be created in the same colour as the author’s normal pen although there is always the chance that he or she may pick up the nearest instrument to write a short note for almost any purpose. To write a memo to the milkman, a note to anyone who belongs to their in-house companions, someone at in their workplace or any number of other possibilities.
The use of colour in handwriting analysis is relatively well-known when a person continually writes in his or her usual colour because then that hue or shade can and does often take on a more specialised meaning. This will always be so when it is obvious that the author has wilfully chosen a different colour or a series of colours to execute their work.
At such times it would be wise to interpret these shades as if they were the first or primary colour choice of any script.
To deliberately choose or use red indicates and enhances the stimulative quality of the colour. Bold red hues suggest energy and sexuality; such a writer has to be noticed because it would wise to expect their overall nature to have an element of some imbalance. The use of this colour can indicate a bullying nature. Such folk are more likely to act or react rather swiftly but emotionally more than objectively, However, if or when confronted by someone with a calm but constructive manner these writers are liable tend to fold their tent and steal away.
A writer who uses pink could be suggesting that the more feminine side of their nature will be to the fore irrespective of whether the author is male or female. Such writers find it easy to compromise; they are a tad too adaptable for their own good because they prefer to avoid conflict or argument wherever they are or whenever they can. One might also expect this writer to be a sharing, sentimental type especially within their relative social circles. .
Light or bright blue suggests a more reflective state although those who do use it like to be noticed unless the author is a woman in which case there will be strong artistic implications while a pale blue hue also symbolises sensitivity. Either shade suggests an interest in design or creative work along with a strong element of imagination. These writers may lack “get up and go” and lack the physical energies needed at certain times and there may be a tendency to be a little too critical at times
Most people use medium to dark blue ink as a matter of course – so this does not count except to remind the reader that this is the colour of confidence and integrity – perhaps even the mark of some degree of authority in many cases. There will almost always be an air of independence associated with these writers.
Green ink almost always often relates to a disturbed emotional state especially in the younger element, male or female. This colour is often chosen by them as and when a relationship breaks up for whatever cause. The darker the shade of green the more caring the nature; such a writer may be involved in the healing arts in some way
The lighter shades of green suggest and element of independence in their nature can often be thought of as different and original. They are a tad more flexible than most and can be changeable. They need variety and change. Some may show a form of resentment or that jealousy or envy would have been stronger than usual when the writing was created. On the other hand green is a symbol of fertility and renewal – in which case the writer could be searching for another (new?) partner.
Yellow is often used when material matters or a financial involvement is present for this is the colour of gold or money but, equally, it is also the colour we associate with health matters. Thus, yellow may be used where a health weakness could be one of the causes of the writer’s inner worrying nature. There are those whom we think of as talkative and many have a flair for the selling game.
Orange is often used to restore health and the general “joie de vivre” within the life-style. It promotes a healthy appetite and helps to induce more natural rest and sleep periods. People who us this colour consistently are quite rare but they will be noted for their excessive energy, some restlessness and the way they positively glow with life. Once they get an idea in their heads they often go all out to achieve - often against all odds
Brown symbolises a need for security. People who use this colour are normally gifted with plenty of common-sense but they can be rather slow to act. It can often take time for these people to mobilise themselves and act accordingly. Thus, these folk are not a part nature’s immediate response team at all but they do know how to look after not only themselves but those around them as well. They rarely act in an impulsive manner. Only once they feel secure are they likely to appear “pushy for they do like to be heard in spite of not always being good in their mode of self-expression.
Violet or mauve almost always shows a level of emotional inconsistency in that he or she is looking to redress any imbalance. Either shade is also a sign of inner sensitivity. Thus, when written by a woman she is likely to be noted for that extra special degree of femininity. There will be a hint of an expensive or expansive nature.
When a man writes or even sketches in these colours the implication is one of a rather gentle nature and quite often is someone who is naturally creative. Also, expect to find strong elements of intelligence, originality and a far-sighted nature. Such writers are often born dreamers but in either case they do seem to have a rather healthy social nature once they relax.
Almost any shade of purple is fairly rare but when used it almost always implies a certain amount of thoughtfulness and intuitiveness in the writer’s inner nature. There will be an element of self-importance present. These folk can find it hard to trust others. However, the use of this colour is also known to hide a slight inferiority complex or may even be a statement of emotional inadequacy. This may be exacerbated by hyper-sensitivity (often not too well hidden), and a rebel streak or both. These writers dislike their ideas or motives to be questioned
Grey is neutral or impartial. Generally speaking it relates to a state of temporary depression such as that displayed by someone who has just lost an argument or other dispute. However, most people who use this as their normal colour for their script tend to hide their rather clever nature. Their talents may be far and wide-reaching for they know how to perform almost any task with great aplomb although their biggest problem is getting anything started. Many may say they always feel tired or they energy levels are low.
Silver or gold colours are not often found but when they are the author will display a definite artistic streak. Silver refers to independence and a somewhat detached outlook on life although many are born romantics. Such writers prefer others to come to them – they rarely reach out to others.
Gold implies impracticality but there may well be an above average level of intuition perhaps with a little pretentiousness thrown in. There is almost always a sense of extravagance and or grandeur in the nature. When “pushed” writers who use these colours seem to know how to “detach” themselves from their feelings and get the job done – and done well. Many show they are born leaders once they are given the chance to shine.
The use of black usually denotes anxiety and stress. Provided those who use this colour do not normally use it in their normal writing it implies that when they do make a move to restore the status quo it is likely to be an all-out affair. Therefore, such writers are often so pessimistic they feel that what they are going to do will have to be an all or nothing effort. They may appear authoritative which also implies they may not be easily approached.
People who use this colour as a matter of course like others to be aware that they (the writer) must be clearly understood at all times. There will be some intolerance in the overall nature for these folk do not always recognise or acknowledge the softer element in a personality.
