The Nitty Gritty on Spacing

Time to have a look at some examples of spacing patterns and what they mean. I'll try and do my best to explain the type of spacing by using extra spacebar spaces between each computer letter...

Words separated by wide spaces

Here     is    an    example

In this example the word looks normal (let's pretend the handwriting is considered 'normal') but the spacing between each word stands out - as it should.

When the writer puts large spaces between each word - it means they are putting space between themselves and other people. People who write like this find it hard to connect with other people and as such they have issues with trust, intimacy and maintaining relationships.

Uneven Spacing

here     is  an   example of     uneven  spacing. 

This means that the writer is having issues with what they are trying to say. When you have a clear idea of what you want to write, the writing comes naturally and freely. When you stop and think about what you want to write, that natural flow is hampered, resulting in uneven spacing between your words.

Large Spacing Between Letters and Words.

T h i s  I s  A s  G o o d  a s  I  c a n  d o  o n  a  c o m p u t e r  !

Wide spacing such as my excellent example above means a broad, open minded person. It depicts fast, open and loose writing. The more fast, open and loose the writing is, likewise to the individual!

Well, that's all for now. I hope this gave a good starter on spacing.

Next post will be a suprise, I have a few samples to analyse so whatever interests me the most in them will be the next blog post.

Until then!
