Take a sample of your handwriting, spontaneously written on plain unlined paper. Turn the sheet over and examine it. Can you see the words on the reverse of the page? Can you feel the outline of the letters? Turn back to the front. Is the writing dark and heavy pressured or light? Classify the pressure of the writing as heavy, medium or light.
If you were really angry with someone and were dashing off a note to them, how would you write? With strong emotion. The pressure of your writing would be strong and you might even tear the page in your anger!

People who habitually write with heavy pressure are capable of deep and lasting feelings of love and loyalty, as well as of dislike and resentment. They tend to hold on to their feelings over prolonged periods. These writers have strong drive and aggressiveness and do not give up easily once they have set their minds on an objective. They demonstrate vitality, enthusiasm and emotional strength and permanence. They have strong sensual and sexual affinities.Incidentally strong pressured writers have a strong color sense and prefer dark and bright colors
