Oscar Pistorius analyzed: what his handwriting reveals

See also

Oscar Pistorius sits precariously at the defense table with his head in his hands. Is he feeling remorseful? Guilty? Wrongly accused? A note written on Blade Runner stationery was posted to the Internet by the Australian news media. Analysis of his handwriting and signature reveal the following:

· Overall upward slant indicates a positive direction and intention

· Small, nearly imperceptible letters reflect shyness / timidity

· Frequent use of exclamation points and a smiley face signify enthusiasm and child-like tendencies

· Half cursive / half printing shows a person with competing personality traits

Pistorius’ signature reveals even more:

· Sharp edges of the first letter (P which looks more like a Z) indicates a person who is quick to react

· Edges also indicate anger

· Dotting the “i” with a circle is sign of immaturity

· “Oscar” is beneath “Pistorius” which could mean he feels subordinate to his family and/or is trying to prove his value to others

The note was written in 2011 and represents a happier time in Pistorius’ life. The general tone of the message is upbeat, closing with a large M and L in the words “Much” and “Love”. The line that appears to be part of the P in “Pistorius” acts as a divider between Oscar and his family. Only those closest to the Blade Runner could confirm his family dynamic, however, based on the sample, Pistorius is a man torn between two (possibly 3) versions of himself.
