What Do Your Doodles Say About You?
Apr 06, 2016
Did you know that your doodles can reveal a lot about your mood and personality? Most people doodle when they're bored, which means that doodles tend to be done half-consciously. According to professional handwriting analysts, these drawings can offer glimpses into our inner selves that go beyond the paper's surface.
Discover what your doodles say about you by focusing on the types of doodles you tend to draw the most.
Floral doodles are quite common, but it's how you draw flowers that can set you apart from others. If you tend to draw pointy petals but the center of the flower is a circle, you likely put up a defensive front but are warm at heart. If you draw a circular flower center with rounded petals, you're a family-centric, amiable person. Perky flowers suggest a sociable personality while drooping flower heads indicate you may be worried about something.
If you sketch faces, the expression on your character's face could indicate the type of mood you're currently in. Drawing ugly or weird faces suggests you're mistrustful or lacking self-confidence, while a good-looking face means you see the best in others. Doodling profiles indicate you're an introvert, but comic faces display the need to be the center of attention.
This one is kind of a no-brainer. Doodling hearts over and over again tends to indicate that you're in love or have a romantic interest.
Drawing butterflies, bees, birds, and other winged creatures suggests that you're not one to be tied down. Alternatively, these doodles can mean that you're trying to avoid being pulled down by problems or difficult tasks.
Extreme introverts are the most likely to draw intricate patterns. Highly-detailed patterns that are particularly busy can also indicate you have an obsessive nature or can't let go of a situation.
A simple house is a common doodle that indicates the need for security in your life. If the drawing is neat, you desire a secure home life. If the drawing is messy or without windows, you may be unhappy at home.
Doodling your own name or initials is a favorite among those who enjoy being the center of attention. Doodling someone else's name, on the other hand, indicates that you've been thinking about that person. Underlining a name means that the person is very important to you.
Doodling stars indicates that you're hopeful or optimistic. Stars are also often drawn by the most ambitious among us, denoting big dreams or lofty goals you've got set in your sights.
Zigzags are another common doodle, but they can mean various things depending on how you draw them. Soft, curvy zigzags indicate a romantic, feminine approach to life, while straighter zigzags display more masculine, aggressive characteristics. On the whole, zigzags display energetic thinking and a desire to move on.
This list is by no means exhaustive, as the types of doodles we create are limited only by the number of people on the planet. Plus, your doodle's placement on the page can also say a lot. So what does your favorite doodle say about your personality?
