'There has always been a controversy around when John Hancock's birthday really was and what he said when he so boldly signed the Declaration of Independence,' says court qualified handwriting expert Bart Baggett, author of the best-selling 'Success Secrets of the Rich and Happy' (Empresse Publishing, $17.95 http://berichandhappy.com), 'America's Most Wanted' on-air handwriting expert and Director of Handwriting University.

Here's Baggett's analysis of John Hancock's underlined signature. He also used long strokes on many letters. Both traits demonstrate his enthusiasm and boundless energy. Further, Baggett has found that those who write with tall upper zone loops, often stand tall with strong ethics. The noticeably tall letters in Hancock's writing show his courage, pride and desire to be admired by his peers. His writing is an classic example of leadership and a great self esteem.

For those who don't underline their signatures and whose name is smaller in size, Baggett assures there are success traits revealed in other handwriting strokes, too. Here are some 'Success Secrets' outlined in Baggett's book;

  • Strong self-esteem (Large capital letters in a signature and high crossed t bars)
  • Determination (heavy down strokes below the baseline into the lower zone)
  • Persistence (not picking up your pen when you cross the letter t or A forming a star)
  • Long Lasting, Enduring Emotions (pressing very hard on the paper )
