If you see a closed o or a letter you are looking at a loop formation. Think of it as a circle or elliptical shaped circle if it is closed. A clean basic loop in those letters signifies clear, frank communication. If the loops are consistently uncontaminated by extra, unnecessary strokes, the writer is candid.
Often, the communication letters in the middle zone show additional strokes within the circles. If that is true than the value of absolute frankness is compromised.
Then again, it is good to remember that being frank without having discretion is not ideal, especially if the writer is too direct. People get their feelings hurt quite easily so we should stay tuned in to how we are speaking our minds. Empathy for the hearer may save us from wanting to saw off our tongue.
Very few writers have totally clean communication letters. Have a look at your own writing; you may be surprised.
A deeper study of handwriting analysis shows how evasiveness, secretiveness and even intentional warping of the truth pops up in writing and other indicators give clues as to why they may be there.
Years ago, a friend, who was learning to analyze handwriting, found many places in an aunt's writing where an assortment of compromised communication letters showed up. She brought the sample to show me.
As the newbie and I talked she described the behavior of her aunt. At parties she was a gusher, spewing obviously insincere compliments in every direction. She made people uncomfortable. "Dear, I looovvve your dress!" Later, in private, once she kicked off her shoes, she had great fun doing a postmortum on her own party, especially how everybody had looked. She relished sarcastically laughing at how 'really awful' some of the dresses were and how much her friends had aged since last year's party. (Hinting for the compliments she so wanted to hear—"Dahling, you don't look a minute older in comparison.")
The newbie let me look at her aunt's writing. What would you expect it would look like? Before I opened the envelope I tried to imagine it based on the description of behavior. I wasn't too far off.
It was large, flowing, full of loops and ostentacious. The sarcasm was there (a very strong trait, which didn't serve her well) but it was her fear of not being noticed that screamed off the page. Her self-esteem was marginal and she was very vulnerable to criticism. Her loops had loops had loops so she saw the world in an exaggerated form.
The day I looked at that writing so many years ago I remember thinking how amazing handwriting analysis is. Here was a woman I had never met whose 'story' was in her handwriting. She wasn't the secure extrovert she tried to be; she was a lonely woman trying hard to be liked but going about it the wrong way.
