How to: Analyse Your Doodles
Get your mind out of the gutter… I’m not referring to a particular part of your boyfriend’s anatomy. The doodles I’m talking about are those little designs which we tend to draw when we’re bored (for me it’s always been flowers and stars).
Believe it or not, according to handwriting experts our doodles can actually reveal our subconscious thoughts. Doodles and scribbles are symbols (like those in your dreams) and they can represent hidden emotions and disguised wishes.
So go and check any of your old schoolbooks or the notepad beside your phone, and join in the fun of doodle analysis…
Here’s what the professional analysts (graphologists) have to say about common doodles and what they apparently reveal:

(e.g squares, cubes, triangles)

(e.g squiggles and swirls)
