The writer channels his vitality where it is needed at the moment. He jumps from one thing to another with a minimum of stress. There is no special emphasis on any particular area of life, but he seems to fling the energy in a variety of directions with little focus. Some part of his body is always moving in a constant discharge of energy. Flexible and ready to adapt, he has no trouble making last-minute adjustments.
Elvis suffers from a strong degree of internal conflict, feeling pulled first one way, then another. These conflicts may be related to a particular situation, but it is more likely the way he generally faces life. His sense of pride compels him to do his best, always. He wants others to see him in the best possible light, so that if he believes he has been less than authentic, it leaves him feeling troubled and let down. Elvis tries to use good judgment, but his emotions often get the better of him.
Graphological justification: Emphasis is on the picture of movement. There is very little rhythm or regularity in the writing, and the organization is disturbed; but the clear line spacing indicates some ability to keep his perspective. The lower zone is disproportionate to the other zones, and is overly long and malformed. This indicates unresolved conflicts and past issues. As Felix Klein might say, "he dipped his bucket into the well of the subconscious and did not like what he found there."
It is important for Elvis to make sure his expectations are within a realistic range; otherwise he will set himself up for disappointment. He has high standards for himself, sometimes beyond what he can handle. He is not possessive or jealous about ownership, but has a rather casual approach. Elvis enjoys beautiful, luxurious surroundings as much as the next person, but he can perform just as well in less elegant surroundings. He is somewhat torn between being conservative and being extravagant. While he may be artful and inventive, Elvis does not appear to have the confidence needed to allow his creativity to blossom to its full potential without support and encouragement.
Graphological justification: Again, movement is emphasized. He is driven, rather than being the driver. There is a lack of proper steering, which suggests someone who was restless and uncertain about where he wanted to go. The tall upper zone and high-crossed t-bars indicate his high standards and need to push himself beyond his limitations. The muddy ductus may be at least partly due to multi-generational photocopies, but it does seem to point to what is known about Elvis as someone who over-indulged in drugs and other sensual outlets. The secondary threading is a sign of feeling "strung out."
He is willing to listen to new ideas even when they do not match his current perceptions, and his point of view is open to adjustment on some levels. Stimulated by opportunities for learning, he is quick to take hold of new information. A quick thinker who uses good judgment, Elvis finds it natural to tap into his intuition and sum up people or situations quickly and easily.
Graphological justification: Although there is a great deal of repression in the writing, the overall spacial arrangement is open. There are also occasionally some expanded letters in the upper zone. Thus, even though he preferred to stick with what he knew intellectually, he was not totally closed-minded. Intuition is indicated in the thready quality of the connecting strokes, with wide letter spacing in many words. However, the inconsistency reveals that he more often would jump to conclusions without benefit of enough facts.
His apparent generosity may have a hidden price. It could be money, time, or admiration. In other words, he may be tempted to buy friendships. He gives indication of being forthright in what he says, but what he does not say and does not talk about may be entirely another matter. Keeping a sense of humor helps him see the lighter side of things. When Elvis needs some space, you can expect him to disappear for a while, physically, emotionally, or both. He welcomes physical contact and loves to hug and hold his partner close. Elvis expects you to take care of yourself while visiting at his home. His outward restraint may lead others to believe he is shy, but modest probably is a more accurate term. He probably makes sure you are well supplied with food and drink, then leaves you to take care of yourself.
Graphological justification: The long, wandering lower zone and overall picture of restless movement are often chosen by those who are profligate in their generosity. Add to that the lack of controls and excess and extravagance are indicated. The irregularity in letter and word spacing, combined with the extremely variable middle zone show difficulty with social boundaries. His affability and congeniality would be mixed with bursts of irritability and a need to be alone, which could make life difficult for those in his sphere of influence, as they would never know what was coming.
His enthusiasm is highly contagious. Elvis has a big heart that often overflows with emotion. Once he takes up a cause, it is only a matter of time before everyone around him joins him in it. He will attempt certain activities or tasks if he has been successful at the same thing in the past. However, if his endeavors have proved unsuccessful, he is less likely to try again. He is reasonably resourceful, but prefers to take a conservative path when problems arise. His concern for others, while strong, is not carried to extremes. When Elvis is feeling down and depressed, afraid that his hopes and dreams are not going to materialize, he is apt to engage in positive self-talk. He tells himself that tomorrow is another day and things are bound to get better.
Graphological justification: The overflowing of emotion is seen in the strong variability and inconsistency manifest throughout the writing (the original sample is 5 pages). A combination of thread and angles is used by the manipulator who does whatever is expedient to get his needs met. The tendency towards conservatism whenever possible is revealed in the copybook style of writing and the retracings and narrowness which show fear of the unknown.
He is diligent in pursuing his goals, even when they are not as interesting as he thought they would be. When he faces too many obstacles or if a project becomes too routine and boring, he may be tempted to give up. However, an innate sense of responsibility keeps him going until he has finished what he started.
Graphological justification: Again, the restless movement, including unsteady baseline and uneven right margin suggest someone who tends to be easily sidetracked. However, he does continue to the end of the line and has apparent strong pressure (inconclusive due to examining a photocopy), which help see him through.
A need for excessive control may prompt this person to demean others and build himself up to make them feel less. A lack of inhibitions indicates someone who does not always consider the needs of others. Therefore, he is probably not averse to taking up the time, energy, and resources of others, whether they welcome his presence or not. Elvis is the type of person for whom every relationship degenerates into a power struggle. He must be right, must win, must come out on top in every discussion.
He seems to be looking for satisfaction from sources outside himself, rather than seeing that his needs must first be met on an inner level. Elvis has a variety of responses to similar situations: blunt one minute, bold, full-speed-ahead the next; back-into-the-shell, you first, out of my way, I refuse to move, and so on. He is restive and unsettled, which can cause a sense of unease in the people around him.
Graphological justification: More of the same. Restless movement, unevenness, variability. The need to be right is seen in the over-connectedness, which indicates an insistence on intellectualizing, or "thinking through" his feelings and trying to reason them out, rather than just feeling them.
