7 Things the Presidents’ Handwriting Reveals About Them
John Quincy Adams
John Quincy Adams was a lawyer, diplomat, politician and the sixth president of the United States of America. John Quincy Adams wrote like a perfectionist because his letters are clearly articulated and this means that he loved to pay attention to details. The dots from the letter ‘í’ were perfectly and unusually created.
According to handwriting specialist Annette Poizner, “this would be a person who had perfectionistic tendencies,” she says. But the fact that John was a perfectionist is not a secret, because when he became a father, he forbade his son to see him again until the kid improved his grades at school.
Annette said that “he would be attached to his details, the rightness of each because each would be carefully thought out. This would be his processing style: grounded in carefully analyzed premises, each considered fully, so he will have strong ownership or attachment to his perspectives. His driving motivation is ‘right action.’”
