With few interviews, First Lady Melania Trump doesn’t give much away about herself.
But according handwriting expert Sheila Kurtz, a note she left at a children’s hospital in Italy on Wednesday reveals plenty.
It read: ‘Great visiting you! Stay strong & positive! Much love, Melania Trump’.
She paired the message with two drawings: one of a flower and one of a love heart.
Mrs Trump’s handwriting is curly, with detailed hooks and precise points, revealing tenacity and a desire to hold on to things.
Interestingly, Kurtz says, Mrs Trump’s scribe bears little resemblance to her signature – which looks uncannily similar to Donald Trump’s.
Kurtz, a master graphologist based in New York, has studied President Trump’s handwriting for several decades – and is even the author of biometric graphology textbooks which Trump has read studied.
Here Kurtz breaks down her analysis of Melania’s handwriting, Donald’s handwriting, and their signatures – and what they mean…
She has a lot of initial hooks starting a letter, little grasping hooks. This shows she likes to collect and to own things, both material and immaterial.
Throughout there are also little final hooks at the end of words, which show tenacity – she is tenacious about holding on to whatever she acquires.
Her letters are very precise and her dots are all very exact. This shows she is a good listener, direct, quite loyal, with good self control even when she is impatient.
President Trump’s block printing indicates that he doesn’t want anyone to get inside and know him. That’s why block printing is used in many ransom notes.
His textual handwriting itself is far more slender and fine than his thick, dark signature. The script shows a very independent thinker, with a strong element of caution and much determination.
There is also a degree of loyalty, more openness than might be expected, analytical and investigative thinking, and he is highly intuitive, which means he fully trusts his ‘gut’ reactions and makes decisions based on them.

Melania Trump’s signature is stylized and practiced, like a logo, and its verticality looks similar to his [Donald’s]. But it is tight and cramped and lacks any sign of generosity of spirit.
We also see signs of self-deceit. She shows signs of intuition, which she may not trust and seldom uses. Her signature is half the size of his.

President Trump’s signature is markedly different from his printed handwriting.
His pointy signature is stylized, skyscraper tall, and overpowers anybody else’s. This is sign of extreme vanity. Such extreme vanity means that the writer inflates her or his self-esteem and brags that it’s even bigger to others.
The signature also shows the wigwam-like structures of unlimited stubbornness. The fierce shapes of his signature are meant to be overpowering and intimidating. Its behemoth size dwarfs any and all of the signatures on the Declaration of Independence and of any previous American president.
