Does your signature reveal you are a NARCISSIST?
In a similar study, published in the Journal of Research in Personality, researchers investigated the relationship between signature size and a number of traits, including aggressive and sociable dominance, narcissism, and self-esteem.
The team analyzed the signatures of 340 Uruguayan university students.
This revealed ‘a significant link between signature size and sociable dominance, both for males and females, while narcissism was only in females significantly associated with signature size.’
People who score higher in sociable dominance often like to be the center of attention, the researchers explained.
‘Given the positive association of signature size and sociable dominance, larger signatures could be interpreted as a signal of the inclination to stand out and occupy a central position within a group,’ they wrote.
