Graphology at Home – Lesson 14 – The Letters D and E


o Imagine the letter written in two parts. We see the individual standing alone. Since this letter (D) is normally made of connected lines, this technique of writing shows a deficiency in adjusting to what others may do.

o The simple letter (d) with an arc at the right shows taste. The writer has a flair for the finer things of life. Try writing this letter. You will feel the grace of it.

o The letter, which is written in the form of a musical note, shows musical interest.

o Consider the upper length, which extends quite high into the upper zone; this shows a moral personality; this is a person who respects spiritual ideals.

o When the letter is looped, it shows vanity and sensitivity, as if the loops were an added shield of protection from getting hurt.

o There are letters, which are called the Greek d, e, and g; because they resemble the way those letters are formed in the Greek alphabet. When two or all three of them appear repeatedly in someone’s handwriting, it is a sign of culture, of a literary-oriented individual. Such letters are usually found among intellectuals and people with high IQs, and their presence indicates speed and good taste. If only one of these signs appears-and especially if it is relatively infrequent-, we see someone who is trying to appear cultured, but is not quite.

o When the head of the letter is written downward, demonstrating the writer’s feelings, it shows pessimism and depression.

o Whenever two different ways of writing the same letter appears, it indicates versatility. (In the capital I, it hints at someone who is not quite sure who he is, so he tries out different personalities.)

o When the loop is harmoniously swung around, we see one of two things: in a superior script, logic in decision-making; in an inferior script, an attempt to use logic that the writer does not possess. A superior script is one that often contains original letterforms, simplicity, words and lines clearly separated and usually speedy writing. An inferior script is one that often contains lack of originality, a strong adherence to copybook standard, ostentation, and usually a slow hand, with words and lines, which entangle.

o When there is a nice ‘swing’ in writing the letter, it reflects the mind’s ability to move in whatever direction is necessary.

o When the letters are connected, it shows the power of deduction. This writer uses logic, building fact upon fact, just as he places letter upon letter.

o Picture capital letters, which are excessively large. Since the capital letter represents the ego, they show pride, vanity, conceit, and jealousy.


o Imagine the letter (e) written with a loop and itself in the form of a garland. Garlands indicate friendliness. The round, easy way it is written shows casualness, lightheartedness, even carelessness.

o When the end stroke comes up, over, and down the left side, it shows someone who distorts facts. Picture the beginning of the end stroke (at the right side of the letter) as the writer’s right ear. By the time the stroke has traveled around to where it ends (by the left ear), the story has changed. The true story went in one ear and out the other.

o Consider the letter as two concave arcs. This capital E looks like two eyes staring at something and it denotes the keen observer.

o When the beginning stroke touches the top part of the letter, like a weight of some kind pressing down on it, it shows the writer’s difficulty in handling his concerns.

o Picture an underlength that would underline the rest of the word. The fashion in which the writer extends this capital (the ego) shows self-admiration.
