Are You A Write Giveaway?

Do you remember how teen magazines were always full of quizzes that would reveal the real you via the shape of your hand, your handwriting, or even the kind of knickers you wore? (Yes, really. The Blue Jeans annual of 1979 and the Mates annual of 1978 had one.) I collect old magazines, annuals, and suchlike so when a blog post on handwriting was suggested,  I knew just the angle to approach it from.

Here we have a handwriting quiz from the 1986 Blue Jeans annual:

These are my answers:

I had to put the last answer at the top because my handwriting is too big...

And these were Anthony's:

According to Blue Jeans I'm attention seeking and vain, kind and generous, and 'everyone knows exactly where they stand' with me. Anthony, on the other hand, is shy, intelligent, and has a very good memory. Hmmm.

How do you fare? :)


  1. Got to love these tests! I think I've broken the test though - I underline my signature & am therefore a show off, but my 'I's are the same size as my other writing & I therefore have no desire to show off! Visiting from #weekendblogshare

    1. Haha, but this is scientifically proven, you know? ;) They were always my fave bits of the magazines - along with the problem page!

  2. #AnythingGoes is great because of you! Thank you for continuing to support this Link Party with your talent and creativity.

  3. I used to love these quizzes! Not sure about most of this analysis but my handwriting is medium-size and I do send people birthday cards! :)

    1. I've been scanning a load of old magazines / annuals and keep getting distracted by doing the quizzes. It's like, who knew you could learn so much about yourself from the shape of your feet? :D


I love to hear from you, so please don't be shy!
