Stephen has a very unusual lower zone y loop. If the data input is correct, Stephen's y or g is large and opens up to the left side of the page. This is not a common trait, but the implications are very interesting. As you begin to study handwriting analysis, you will learn any loop indicates imagination. This lower loop indicates the amount of imagination Stephen has regarding sex and physical things. So, his lower zone stroke is large, so his sexual imagination is large and open. Furthermore, because the loop is incomplete and extends to the left, this indicates a particular fascination with certain aspects of sexuality that have not been fulfilled, yet. In a nutshell, Stephen is open to some very new ideas sexually and is willing to try anything once.
(Nope. I have zero sexual imagination. Absolutely petrified of trying "something new"... I prefer to stick with the "vanilla" stuff, and I enjoy it too)
Something is incomplete in Stephen's life. He feels frustration relating to his physical needs and desires. Somewhere in his life there is some disappointment, non-fulfillment, and interruption. This is very likely to relate to Stephen's sexual needs.
|(Well, i suppose what's missing is that special person. Someone who i can say i genuinely love, and who can tell me the same and really mean it. In the past, what had frustrated me for some time, is the fact that being gay, i would not be able to find a partner who i love and who would be loved and accepted by my JW family. The issue can only be resolved mentally when i take a stand for myself, instead of being mentally-emprisoned by my family.)|
Stephen is sarcastic. This is a defense mechanism designed to protect his ego when he feels hurt. He pokes people harder than he gets poked. These sarcastic remarks can be very funny. They can also be harsh, bitter, and caustic at the same time.
(I do not agree. I hate sarcasm, because I've been hurt deeply by it, In fact I'm quite an indirect person, who doesn't like giving his opinion harshly. I often use cushioning expressions in my speech so as not to cause offence. I always speak as if walking on eggshells.)
Stephen's true self-image is unreasonably low. Someone once told Stephen that he wasn't a great and beautiful person, and he believed them. Stephen also has a fear that he might fail if he takes large risks. Therefore he resists setting his goals too high, risking failure. He doesn't have the internal confidence that frees him to take risks and chance failure. Stephen is capable of accomplishing much more than he is presently achieving. All this relates to his self-esteem. Stephen's self-concept is artificially low. Stephen will stay in a bad situation much too long... why? Because he is afraid that if he makes a change, it might get worse. It is hard for Stephen to plan too far into the future. He kind of takes things on a day to day basis. He may tell you his dreams but he is living in today, with a fear of making a change. No matter how loud he speaks, look at his actions. This is perhaps the biggest single barrier to happiness people not believing in and loving themselves. Stephen is an example of someone living with a low self-image, because their innate self-confidence was broken.
(Now this paragraph was telling. No one has directly told me those words, "you are not a great and beautiful person", but I've always had this impression from my parents, the impression that i'm never good enough for Jehovah... and even at present, when i'm mentally emancipated from the teachings of the WTS, there is still this mental barrier that ties me down. I definately take things on a day to day basis. I hate planning for the future, the future depresses me. Even if i am not in an ideal situation, i am always happy in "today", and that makes me a happy and joyous person in general. I hate change, but I recognise that I need change in order to be able to project my freedom and happiness into the future. I will stay in a bad situation much too long, I've been in a bad situation with my parents and the WTS for waaay too long, because I just don't have the self-confidence to break away and stand up for what I want to do. However i don't complain, i just accept my "present" and am able to live in happiness by stimulating happiness in myself.)
In reference to Stephen's mental abilities, he has a very investigating and creating mind. He investigates projects rapidly because he is curious about many things. He gets involved in many projects that seem good at the beginning, but he soon must slow down and look at all the angles. He probably gets too many things going at once. When Stephen slows down, then he becomes more creative than before. Since it takes time to be creative, he must slow down to do it. He then decides what projects he has time to finish. Thus he finishes at a slower pace than when he started the project. He has the best of two kinds of minds. One is the quick investigating mind. The other is the creative mind. His mind thinks quick and rapidly in the investigative mode. He can learn quicker, investigate more, and think faster. Stephen can then switch into his low gear. When he is in the slower mode, he can be creative, remember longer and stack facts in a logical manner. He is more logical this way and can climb mental mountains with a much better grip.
|(This is true. I am a quick investigator, but i'm a very slow person. I'm never in a rush to accomplish anything. I am more creative when not put on the spot to think. However, when under pressure, i can be just as creative and accomplish things in a short period of time.)|
Stephen will be candid and direct when expressing his opinion. He will tell them what he thinks if they ask for it, whether they like it or not. So, if they don't really want his opinion, don't ask for it!
(This is interesting. If my opinion is not asked for, i will not state it... If it is asked for, i will tell the truth, always. I admire clarity and order and do not like wishy-washiness.)
Stephen will demand respect and will expect others to treat him with honor and dignity. Stephen believes in his ideas and will expect other people to also respect them. He has a lot of pride.
(This is true. It is interesting that self-confidence has been separated from pride here.)
Stephen is moderately outgoing. His emotions are stirred by sympathy and heart rendering stories. In fact, he can be kind, friendly, affectionate and considerate of others. He has the ability to put himself into the other person's shoes. Stephen will be somewhat moody, with highs and lows. Sometimes he will be happy, the next day he might be sad. He has the unique ability to get along equally well with what psychology calls introverts and extroverts. This is because he is in between. Psychology calls Stephen an ambivert. He understands the needs of both types. Although they get along, he will not tolerate anyone that is too "far out." He doesn't sway too far one way or the other. When convincing him to buy a product or an idea, a heart rendering story could mean a great deal to him. He puts himself in the same situation as the person in the story, yet he will not buy anything that seems overly impractical or illogical. Stephen is an expressive person. He outwardly shows his emotions. He may even show traces of tears when hearing a sad story. Stephen is a "middle-of-the-roader," politically as well as logically. He weighs both sides of an issue, sits on the fence, and then will decide when he finally has to. He basically doesn't relate to any far out ideas and usually won't go to the extreme on any issue.
(Yep i'm an ambivert. I can get along with anyone (except for the arrogant) because i'm adaptable. I enjoy drawing out the introvert... and calming the extrovert, lol. I'm interested in finding the deeper person behind the mask that we all wear. I definately the ability to put himself into the other person's shoes, i'm very empathetic, but not gullible. I am a fence-sitter because i don't believe in black and white. Hopefully from my posts on JWD you've seen that i don't hasten to make a judgement, even if the evidence seems irrefutable. I always give the "benefit-of-the-doubt".)
People that write their letters in an average height and average size are moderate in their ability to interact socially. According to the data input, Stephen doesn't write too large or too small, indicating a balanced ability to be social and interact with others.
