Edward Handwriting Analysis  
That handriting analysis thing from http://www.handwritingwizard.com has been going around on my flist, so I went insane and analyzed Ed's. :P It's from the letter he was writing in episode 07... and might not be entirely accurate, seeing as the website reccomends cursive handwriting instead of print (and yeah, fictional characterness aside :P). But I was curious anyways, so here's what it came up with:

For a graphologist, the spacing on the page reflects the writer's attitude toward their own world and relationship to things in his or her own space. If the inputted data was correct Edward has left lots of white space on the left side of the paper. Edward fills up the rest of the page in a normal fashion. If this is true, then Edward has a healthy relationship to the past and is ready to move on. The right side of the page represents the future and Edward is ready and willing to get started living now and planning for the future. Edward would like to leave the past behind and move on.

Edward is having a lack of physical energy at the time this handwriting was written. If someone has very short and straight down lower loops (like in the y or g), this indicates this person's physical drive (activity or sex) is compromised. Usually, this indicates the person simply isn't interested in getting too physical right now. This could be a temporary mood which often happens when the body is sick and is healing. Or, this could be a result of an emotional or physical issue that is effecting Edward 's energy level and interest in sex. Sex doesn't seem to be a priority at the moment.

Edward is very self-sufficient. He is trying not to need anyone. He is capable of making it on his own. He probably wants and enjoys people, but he doesn't "need" them. He can be a loner.

Edward has a tendency to put things off, Edward procrastinates. He sometimes pretends to be busy, so he will not have to do whatever he is putting off. He is often late to appointments or deadlines. This usually leads to a great amount of effort at the last minute to meet the deadline. Procrastination is an important factor as it relates to his output on the job or at school. Remember, Edward will put it off until later. Procrastination is easily overcome through a simple stroke adjustment in the handwriting.

Edward is a practical person whose goals are planned, practical, and down to earth. This is typical of people with normal healthy self-esteem. He needs to visualize the end of a project before he starts. he finds joy in anticipation and planning. Notice that I said he plans everything he is going to do, that doesn't necessarily mean things go as planned. Edward basically feels good about hisself. He has a positive self-esteem which contributes to his success. He feels he has the ability to achieve anything he sets his mind to. However, he sets his goals using practicality-- not too "out of reach." He has enough self-confidence to leave a bad situation, yet, he will not take great risks, as they relate to his goals. A good esteem is one key to a happy life. Although there is room for improvement in the confidence catagery, his self-perception is better than average.

Edward is a cumulative and procedural thinker. He likes to have all the facts before making a decision. He thinks or creates much like a brick mason, stacking fact upon fact. His thought pattern or the conclusion will not be complete until the last fact is in place. Like that brick wall, Edward learns faster through visual demonstration than through quick verbal instructions. Once he has learned new material, and understood it, he won't forget. Edward is a methodical thinker, therefore he is able to build things and come up with new ideas. In an argument, he often loses to rapid thinking people because he is thinking thirty minutes later about what he should have said. These people often are very booksmart, but can be out-gunned in a rapid fire verbal debate. He may learn new ideas at a slower pace than other "less detailed" people, but once he gets it, she can handle repetition. Some people hate jobs with too much repetition, he can handle it better than most.

Edward will be candid and direct when expressing his opinion. He will tell them what he thinks if they ask for it, whether they like it or not. So, if they don't really want his opinion, don't ask for it!
Edward will demand respect and will expect others to treat him with honor and dignity. Edward believes in his ideas and will expect other people to also respect them. He has a lot of pride.

Edward uses judgment to make decisions. He is ruled by his head, not his heart. He is a cool, collected person who is usually unexpressive emotionally. Some may see him as unemotional. He does have emotions but has no need to express them. He is withdrawn into hisself and enjoys being alone. The circumstances when Edward does express emotions include: extreme anger, extreme passion, and tremendous stress. If someone gets him mad enough to tell him off, he will not be sorry about it later. He puts a mark in his mind when someone angers him. He keeps track of these marks and when he hits that last mark he will let them know they have gone too far. He is ruled somewhat by self-interest. All his conclusions are made without outside emotional influence. He is very level-headed and will remain calm in an emergency situation. In a situation where other people might get hysterical, he has poise. Edward will work more efficiently if given space and time to be alone. He would rather not be surrounded by people constantly. In a relationship, he will show his love by the things he does rather than by the things he says. Saying "I love you" is not a needed routine because he feels his mate should already know. The only exception to this is if he has logically concluded that it is best for his mate to hear him express his love verbally. Edward is not subject to emotional appeals. If someone is selling a product to him, they will need to present only the facts. They should present them from a standpoint of his sound judgment. He will not be taken in by an emotional story about someone else. He will meet emergencies without getting hysterical and he will always ask "Is this best for me?"

People that write their letters in an average height and average size are moderate in their ability to interact socially. According to the data input, Edward doesn't write too large or too small, indicating a balanced ability to be social and interact with others. Read more about his emotional expressiveness in the section on emotions and slant.

Edward can be defiant. He sometimes has the attitude that if someone doesn't like it the way he is doing it, then they can just "go to hell!" This trait may reveal itself in a rebellious nature that is always ready to resist forces which he thinks are infringing upon his freedom of action.

I think it fits him fairly well. O.o;; Scaryness.

Woa. O-o Only a few things are slightly off. Like, Ed procrastinates only on unimportant stuff like getting back to Central to repport to Roy. XD

Heh, aside from a few things that just don't fit, it's impressive. If you consider this as a map of Ed's personality at age, what, 9? before he went through the traumatizing events which drove him to extraordinary circumstances, it's dead on.

It's either Ed without trauma or Ed after he grew up I think. He got a lot calmer towards the end, and I did at some points find him cold because I wasn't used to him reacting to calmly to such dangerous events.
