The margin shows how the writer spends his money and his attitude toward handling friends. At the end of the first line the writer stops, where it seems to him most appropriate and returns to the left margin to start a second line. Some writers will deliberately choose, point-by-point and line-by-line, a straight left margin. Others are carried away by their enthusiasm...

The margin shows how the writer spends his money and his attitude toward handling friends. When we see a small left margin and a wide right margin, the person is a real spender. He probably begins with a budget of some type, but his true nature soon gets the better of him. The left shows where he begins and the right shows where he is going. Since the right margin is left blank (and the right, as we know, represents the future) we see that he avoids thinking about the future and probably has a fear of it.

The opposite of the above is where the writer starts as a generous spender and ends pinching pennies, as indicated by a cramped right margin. His blank left-hand margin also indicates a fear of the past.

The writer that starts with a narrow margin but as it proceeds down the page, it widens, begins with a budget, but is unable to maintain one. His true nature is to spend. Interestingly enough, on the following page, this writer will once again begin narrow and end wide.

Let's view this comprehensively. At the end of the first line the writer stops where it seems to him most appropriate and returns to the left margin to start a second line. While I concede that a few writers will deliberately choose, point by point and line by line, a straight left margin, others are carried away by their enthusiasm, their impatience, or whatever emotion accompanies the writing; they move the starting point of the written lines more and more to the right, toward the right margin-the left margin widens.

What about the individual who wants to be generous-at least, that is the impression he would like to give. He may be sincere about donating, but eventually, his real self (being thrifty) wins out, and he ends up counting pennies. This is shown by the left margin beginning quite wide and ending almost nonexistent.

A margin can have no particular order. This writer may indulge in excessive spending and then suddenly go on a budget. He has no set order as far as finances are concerned. When he has money, he spends-when he doesn't, he does not take it to heart. To him, money is only a means, and he manages quite well without it.

Small margins at both sides indicate that the writer uses accurate judgment and thrift when shopping. A small margin or no margin at all shows a person who is careful of every penny. Sometimes, in making certain that he is not overcharged, he outwits himself and misses a genuine bargain.

The top margin-that is, the area at the top of the page-indicates the
writer's attitude toward the one he is writing to. The more space left blank, the more respect he feels. If the top margin, reflecting the upper (spiritual) zone is wide, it shows awe for the addressee (the writer does not wish to tread in the spiritual zone). If the top margin is completely filled, it indicates a general lack of respect.

The lower margin-the bottom of the page-is negligible in meaning. However, if someone writes consistently at the bottom of many pages, it usually indicates depression-especially if the signature sags to the bottom. The fact that he writes at the down part of the pages represents his state of mind.

Examination for Lesson 8

1. What do margins show?

2. When the left margin starts off narrow, but as it proceeds down the page, it widens, what does this disclose?

3. When the left margin begins quite wide, and ends almost nonexistent, what does this indicate?

4. Which margin location indicates the writer's attitude toward the person he is writing to?

5. If someone consistently writes at the bottom of many pages and the signature sags to the bottom, what does this usually indicate?

6. What types of margins reflect a conflict between fear of people and the inability to remain alone?

1. Margins show how the writer spends his money and his attitude toward handling friends.

2. His true nature is to spend. He is both enthusiastic and impatient.

3. The individual wants to be generous-at least, that is the impression he would like to give. He may be sincere about donating, but eventually, his real self (being thrifty) wins out.

4. The top margin-that is, the area at the top of the page.

5. It usually indicates depression

6. Left and Right Margins Narrowing.
