For quite a few years now, I've had a tendency to write in all capital letters, making the first letter of any word that would normally be capitalized larger than the rest. What led me to this is that I saw someone else doing it, and I liked it.

With the onset of computers in homes and workplaces, I did a lot less handwriting. I do very little corresponding outside of the digital realm, so my penmanship has suffered, especially cursive writing. My all-caps handwriting does have its on "flair," though.

A few times I decided to look handwriting analyses regarding this, and what I've read for the most part has not been favorable. Egotistic, narcissistic, and arrogance are descriptions I encountered. The closest thing to my truth is where I read that I'm hiding myself. As an INFJ, I can agree to that. A person can ask me something very personal, and I usually won't have a problem answering them, but I don't typically parade my personal feelings and business. I used to call myself an open book, until I realized that I am still learning things about myself as I'm about to turn 55.

I'm just curious to know if more Introverts have a tendency to write in all capital letters than Extraverts...

I have been doing the same thing for about 10 years, but I don't make the first letter of each word larger. Just turned 50. Always tested as INFJ but about to be retested in October.

I'm 55 and have been writing with all caps for about 20 years...my cursive is awful due to keyboard use, as well. I discovered that all caps had a cleaner, crisper look to it, so it just stuck with me. I also studied handwriting analysis years ago but don't recall the caps writing being arrogant etc or perhaps I would have stopped, lol! Anyway, as of late I've adopted more of a "who cares what people think" attitude so I'll stick with the all caps just because I like it! Hope that doesn't sound dreadfully arrogant though... I still care  a little ?
