Russell LewinThis week’s ‘target’, Russell Lewin, managing partner of Baker & McKenzie’s London office, was asked to write a few spontaneous lines. This is what his handwriting revealed:

Oh my, what a big lower zone this writer possesses! Writing zones link to various aspects of motivation; lower zone emphasis indicates that the writer is rather security minded, security being related to a variety of things including materialistic acquisition and/or locks on the door! This writer appears to have an extremely powerful intuition, he will know what is required before most people have come anywhere near to assessing the situations. He really will get a gut feeling about people and what is more, he will be right! The rhythm of his writing appears broken in some places, little judders and hesitations point to current preoccupation with something that is distracting him – he may be undertaking a change of sorts? He may also be a bit tired… don’t overdo things, m’boy! All writing is a compromise between the slowness of the hand and the speed of the brain; this writer demonstrates some rather clever manoeuvres that enable him to go fast without undue loss of legibility. Look at the way he has connected the letters in the word ‘body’ [third line down] and formed the ‘o’ in the word ‘clock’ that follows it – this is a VERY clever and determined lateral thinker.
