analysis of kerry's handwriting
The Handwriting of John F. Kerry
by Bob Wallace
I've been a handwriting analyst for about 17 years. I
don't do it that much anymore, but I did one for
Bush's writing (click here).
I have been unable to find any of Kerry's writing
except his signature. Unfortunately, the signature
only shows how the writer wants to appear to people.
Even so, the signature can still be very useful.
The one thing that Kerry DOES NOT show in his
signature, that Bush shows in his writing, is
exaggerated imagination, which is shown by excessively
large loops. In Bush's case, it was in his lower
loops, which deal with physical things. It's why Bush
imagined such things as Saddam Hussein flying "Drones
of Death" across the Atlantic ocean.
Kerry essentially has no imagination at all. Again, I
want to point out this is only according to his
signature. Kerry is also less impulsive than Bush.
Impulsiveness is shown by how far the writing slants
to the right. It shows how much the writer is
influenced by his feelings.
Bush shows a great deal of impulsiveness in his
writing. Kerry shows some too, but not nearly as much
Those two traits of Bush � his impulsiveness and his
exaggerated imagination � are probably the main
reasons he got himself into the mess he's in with
Afghanistan and Iraq.
Bush also has major daddy-problems. Kerry doesn't have
that, fortunately. He actually appears to be closer to
his mother than his father.
Kerry is extremely egotistical, far more than Bush.
See the size of those capital letters in relation to
the small letters? They're huge, aren't they? This is
an arrogant, egotistical man. He thinks far, far too
much of himself. This is a flaw � a big flaw.
Kerry also wants to appear important to people, and
wants to shoulder a great deal of responsibility. You
can see than in his clockwise, huge loop in the "J" in
He also, oddly enough, is a loner. Those straight
downstrokes in the "J" and "y" show that. He really
has no desire to mingle with people. He might do it
because he is a politician, but I'll bet if he has any
close friends, it might only be one.
There is one thing in Kerry's handwriting I find very
disturbing. The "K" in "Kerry" does not look like a K.
It looks like a huge knife. That's pretty much
self-explanatory, I think. I'll just say it can be a
very bad thing that might possibly have something to
do with violence.
Is he intelligent? Yes, he is. He's a fast thinker,
but he doesn't analyze things in any great detail.
That's a problem Bush has, too.
Those lower-case letters are a bit thready, which
means not only is he is a fast thinker, but he doesn't
want people to understand him. Let's just say he can
dissemble at times.
I really do wish I had two or three paragraphs of
Kerry's writing. Then I would know what he's really
like. As it stands now, I can only say he's not crazy,
and he's more stable than Bush.
Otherwise, this is an extremely egotistical, very
confident, intelligent man who is a bit of a loner,
who lacks imagination, who probably won't always tell
the truth, and who does not analyze things in any
What kind of President would he make? There's not
enough of his writing to say. But I will say one
thing: those who think he is a weakling who will roll
over and give up in this "War on Terror" are sadly

- That's a fair and balanced assessment on both candidates. Darrell
Hammond also observed that Kerry speaks much more in a theatrical
way than Bush. Kerry makes anything plain and simple sound like
something you aren't smart enough to understand, while Bush makes
anything that doesn't make any sense sound like something a dumbass
Kerry is an even worse speaker than Gore in some sense.
