ABC7 team delves into meaning behind doodles

September 13, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The British Institute of Graphologists has come out with a guide made public Tuesday.

Here are a few examples:

According to the professional handwriting analysts, a doodling a nicely drawn, good-looking face suggests you see the good in others. Weird or ugly faces mean you are probably mistrustful. A flower with rounded petals around a circle suggest a kind, family-oriented person, and pointy petals mean you may be hiding a warm heart behind prickly defensiveness.

The guide also suggests highly successful people often scribble stick figures that symbolize someone in control of their emotions, and focused on their goals. Sketching a house often suggests a need for security. A lack of windows indicates trouble with your home life, but a tidy, open house means all is well.

And if you know someone who tends to doodle their name or initials, it most likely means they like to be the center of attention!
