If you really can tell a lot about a person by his handwriting, Mitt Romney may be inclined to think quickly, act impulsively, dream big, and hang on to what’s his.

But don’t even think about telling him what to do, according to handwriting expert Sheila Kurtz, who analyzed the handwriting of Romney and other presidential contenders for The Daily Beast.

Kurtz said her Graphology Consulting Group pegged former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards as “perhaps the sleaziest man we’d ever scrutinized — and certainly the creepiest politician in the race” during the last presidential election.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich displays positive willpower and drive in his handwriting. He sets high goals that he views as reachable and has intuition that speeds up methodical and investigative thinking.

But his handwriting suggests that he doesn’t delve far into an issue before moving on and filters most new information against preconceptions “galore,” Kurtz wrote. While capable of working alone and accomplishing goals, the former speaker dislikes wasting time.

Ron Paul, on the other hand, displays tact in his handwriting but appears to be inflexible once his mind is made up.

The Texas congressman’s handwriting suggests that he sets “not very serious goals” that are low enough to reach without a stretch. He has a friendly and outgoing nature, but he needs to burn off energy to keep it down to a boil.

With a healthy imagination, Paul doesn’t necessarily follow through on his ideas. But he demonstrates decision-making power.

Rick Santorum is a fast thinker who is comfortable making decisions and possesses a strong drive and high energy with a good self-image, according to his handwriting. The former Pennsylvania senator also is analytical and will probe to ferret through information. He is good with details and expresses himself well — not bad traits for a commander in chief.

Huntsman, handwriting, analysisJon Huntsman appears to set goals “above the reach of ordinary mortals” — leader of the free world, for example — and he generally reaches them. A swift thinker, he doesn’t like to waste time and can become impatient to the point of acting too quickly.

Fortunately, the former Utah governor’s handwriting also indicates that he tends to exercise caution and has a high degree of personal pride.

Able to juggle multiple projects at once, Huntsman displays strong physical and mental drive. He is also true to old friends and early beliefs.

Rick Perry may be prone to flourishes and flares that work to his advantage at times. The Texas governor’s handwriting suggests a man who wants to be different and stand out from the pack.
He also appears to be someone who trusts his gut instinct and leaps over steps to reach quick conclusions based on the facts on hand — not imagination. He prefers to think through facts before making a decision.

The eventual GOP presidential nominee will face an extremely nimble-minded incumbent with a spiritual side, according to an analysis of President Barack Obama’s handwriting.

His mind appears to be “unclogged with preconceptions and prejudices” to allow new ideas in and probe beneath the surface of issues. He also likes to think before taking action and is unlikely to act on “raw or coerced impulse.”

Moreover, Obama appears to display a determined self-control that caps emotional outbursts before they can do damage, and his handwriting indicates that he dampens emotional outbursts of others.

But don’t waste the president’s time, as he appears to be prone to short-lived surges of impatience. He also is likely to be an independent thinker who wants to make up his own mind.

Obama’s handwriting also suggests that the president has a full imagination with a literary bent — two skills that undoubtedly will come in handy while responding to criticism over high unemployment and a burgeoning national debt on the campaign trail.
