I vaguely recall that handwriting slanting upwards is supposed to indicate optimism. A depressed person's handwriting would generally slant downwards.

Handwriting slated forward is supposed to signify extroversion. Slanted backwards, introversion. But I don't think this holds, from my experience. A large first letter in a first name is supposed to suggest a big ego.

Big spaces between words means generosity.

Like I said, I don't know about the reliability of all of this. I used a tiny bit in a small way once, as I have posted.

I'm left-handed, and like many lefties, I use my little finger for support on the paper when I write. Backward slanting handwriting would be physically very difficult for me. On the other hand, if I wrote with my right hand, I would think that such a slant would be easy.
