This post is a continuation of posts on various ways one can be “verbally deceptive.”
Manipulativeness is the ability to control or influence a situation to a desired outcome. This is a form of deception.
Following is a handwriting indicator for this trait:
Notice the “covered” appearance at the top of the oval, communication letters. Sometimes you almost see a figure “8″ looking shape. Just as this covers the letters, one’s communication is covered, too, by the veil of manipulation.
The more you see this in a writing sample, the more prevalent the trait.
