â€œI write with a mixture of printing and joined-up writing. What does that mean?â€
I hear that question so often after I have made a presentation on handwriting analysis to a group.
People always seem to assume itâ€™s something negative, but itâ€™s notâ€¦Â In fact itâ€™s a really useful ability to have.Â With other positive attributes, it can become a real gift.
A mixture of printing and script (that is, joined up letters) is called PrintScript â€“ for obvious reasons!
Script above on the left – Printing above on the right
And what it means is that the writer is writing script but is allowing intuition to flow at the same time.
Printing with gaps between letters
Gaps between letters within script is intuition.
Writing which is totally printed is just printing and does not qualify for intuition, but if you write some of your letters joined on to each other, but leave gaps between others, then you can claim intuition.
This does not mean you are psychic!
In fact, in studying the writing of dozens of psychics, medical intuitives, medium etc I have found that most of them do not show intuition in their writing at all.Â So this is not what we mean by intuition.
The gaps between letters indicate a 6th sense, and intuitive knowing.Â It can show in someone who just seems to come up with ideas out of nowhere â€“ and usually on the spur of the moment.
It shows in someone who just gets a â€œfeelâ€ for things.
Often people with strong intuition will have been operating from this â€œfeelâ€ they get about anything and everything in their life, without realizing it.
Youâ€™ve probably heard people say so often â€œGo with your gut feeling.â€
If the visible or discernable facts say one thing, but you just know something else is the better route to take, you are working on intuition.Â Most people get that feeling at some time, but only those with strong intuition are likely to act on it.
Intuition shows a great deal in the writing of fiction writers, who, surprisingly enough often do not show the actual trait of imagination, but usually do show strong intuition.
They come up with their marvellous stories, plots and characters by getting a feel for the fictional environment they are creating, and as a result everything flows and we get drawn in as we read.
And it shows in the writers of musicians.
Manual dexterity is as additional plus for anyone physically playing an instrument, but intuition is what make the different between playing, or singing, the correct notes, and creating true and beautiful music.
I knew a young woman who was truly gifted on the flute, and one time at home she was asked to play at a time she really did not want to oblige.
She did play, but her entire family immediately told her that that was her â€œplasticâ€ playing and would she please, please play again with feeling.Â The next time she allowed her intuition to take over and the result was like night and day over the first version.
The other side of that of course, is that intuition is also is an indication of musical appreciation. Those who were listening to the recital mentioned above would not have known it was â€œplasticâ€ if they hadnâ€™t been employing their own intuition in listening to it.
Intuition is the ability to come to conclusions without apparent conscious thought processes.Â It is a feeling rather than a logical understanding.
The more intuitive breaks that occur, the intuition the individual is employing.
However there can be too much of a good thing!
Especially if the writing is otherwise not well organized, or showing good thought processes, the intuition can result in scattered thought.
Even in a well organized intuitive, this 6th sense can result in the changing the subject as they talk, because of some other idea that has just plopped into their mind.
This is can be good and even come across as inspired when in a stable, intelligent individual.
Although even then it can make keeping up with their conversation something of a challenge for others!
In general intuition is a gift.
So if you write in printscript, donâ€™t be thinking itâ€™s because you canâ€™t decide whether to write or print, or that youâ€™re mixed up somehow.
Printscript allows your intuition to flow, inspiring you and probably inspiring those around you.
