Condoleeza Rice (Scroll down to the previous post see her writing.)
Dr. Rice has wide spacing between her words, indicating her desire to maintaining some distance between herself and others. She will be the one to set the boundary of psychological and physical space.
She also likes space and time to think things through clearly and so does not allow mental confusion to fuzzy up her mind. (Very wide line spacing. As a review do you remember that the opposite of wide distance between lines is crowded spacing between lines when loops overlap? That indicates confusion of interests with too much going. In such a personality the writer feels stressed because of taking on too many activities at once. So there is a degree of muddled thinking.) Dr. Rice may indeed have a lot going at once but she is blessed with a clear mind. She also would not feel the need to assume all the responsibility and could delegate easily, perhaps having help to handle the day-to-day details—not necessarily what she is best at. Her mind tends to be moving forward to the next step. (Note flying i dots high and/or to the right.) She would appreciate and acknowledge the assistance.
I want to talk about her public persona since most of us have been able to observe her directly speaking and being interviewed. If you watch her carefully you will observe when Dr. Rice begins to speak she does not halt. She speaks rather relentlessly with few or no pauses until she is satisfied she made her point. She will not be interrupted. Here are some handwriting indicators showing traits she exhibits to confirm that tendency:
Concentration and ability to focus (fairly small writing along with her unique spacing pattern already mentioned) She won't be rushed when she wants to present her ideas or opinions.
Her logical clear thinking ability (connected writing pattern showing no breaks between middle zone letters) She relies on logical reasoning; she does not trust hunches to intuitively clue her in; she is looking for facts. She tends to be very discriminate about how much she is willing to take in from others (relatively narrow e loops) so someone who tries to convince her better go in prepared with solid evidence and data.
She is a predominantly methodical thinker. (Note the rounded tops on m and n letters.) While there are also other patterns she can draw on (giving her mental versatility) most of the time she uses a building-block style to work out problems or to learn.
Her directness in cutting through to the essence of issues speeds up her thinking process (very few lead-in strokes at the beginning of words) and that helps her comprehend matters quickly. She would not likely be terse in replying; she tempers her responses with natural diplomacy (tapering size of letters in the middle zone) while still making sure she speaks her mind clearly. She will not back down on that score. And she keeps her cool even when observers see she is angry.
Note her consistent retracing of d and t stems. It takes effort and mental discipline to be able to do that. (If that is not in your handwriting try to do it over and over and you will see what I mean.) It indicates the trait of dignity. A strong degree of the trait creates a formal air people pick up on quickly because there is a natural restraint in the demeanor. It may keep people at a distance. (Remember we have already seen other indicators of her being a private person needing to maintain distance.) She is ladylike at all times, even when she has to be tough. She is resilient.
Dignity also means she shows simple good taste with no fanfare in drawing attention to herself by how she acts and dresses.
Her vertical to slightly right slant shows her cool judgment tempered by some emotional responsiveness so she can feel for others. She may not always show how much but the feelings are there.
Dr. Rice is not seeking the limelight for herself. She has a job to do and is conscientiously trying to do it well. She is intensely loyal in her service.
