7 Things the Presidents’ Handwriting Reveals About Them
Thomas Jefferson was the second vice president and third president of the United States of America (between 1801 and 1809), author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and one of the most influential of the “founding fathers” of the United States.
This president had a unique handwriting, and we say that because the text of the Declaration of Independence was written in one style and the other document with his signature was written in a completely different style. Can you believe it?
“It makes less of an impression when you see the signature separate from the text, but we know that this is how he did it and that he did have this dramatic difference between the two writing styles,” Poizner says.
Having different styles may mean that he had two personalities or two different and opposite opinions. The first part of the text indicates that he is a calm, intelligent and organized person who is also determined to do what is right for him and others. But the second text with large and unusual letters in the signature indicates that he wants to be in the center of attention and proud of who he has become.
