Larry

Feel like I mentioned this on a recent show. But I've never had a more nervous moment signing my signature over the last two weeks, we just recently bought a condo, and when he had the notary out, and there was this moment where someone in his crew that we needed to sign on, messed up their signature and the notary went crazy that I was like, all hell, I'm gonna screw this up. So today, we're gonna be talking about your signature comes from an article from the best of life online signature analysis, the quarters, the way you sign your name says more about your personality than you think I'm assuming Andrew, because I know you kind of well, that you take some time when you sign your name to something and you don't just scribble something crazy.


Andrew Keller

Well, that's not the case. I actually I do. I mean, I, I think I was in fourth grade. And I was like, I'm gonna make a conscious decision to sign my name. Like, because the a is like in cursive is it looks like a lowercase a, but it's bigger. I was like, I'm gonna change it today. I spent, I don't know, 45 minutes practicing what I wanted my signature to be. And now it is what it is. This is this is a really interesting article. I want to say that maybe the the person that freaked out the notary that freaked out about the signature, it says more about their personality than the person that messed up.


Larry

Well, that was because this person, like signed a date along with their name, and they weren't supposed to do that. So it just made me think like, Oh, crap, this is something where it's not a normal, just signature.


Andrew Keller

Yeah, when we signed our marriage certificate recently, the clerk, like gave us put the fear of God. And it's like, if you mess this up, it's gonna be $40. to redo if you do this, like it has to be in black pin, you have to sign the right line. If you cross the wrong thing. It'll mess up. So anyway, I went through this article, I thought it was interesting, do you what do you identify with is your signature, there's a bunch of indecipherable underlining you put a period after your name? Do you


Larry

want to read this? Do you know anybody that signs their name, and then underlines it?


Andrew Keller

I don't, I think the one one of them. One says you're a Titan of industry, if you put a period after your name, I don't know about that. I think maybe you're spending a little bit too much time. Also, I think it depends. Like if you're if you have a normal job that you just do, whatever you do, and you have to sign your name once a month, or whatever, like this would be interesting to understand. But like if you work in payroll, and you have to manually execute checks, or if you are assigning often, I think you're it, you can't look as much into a signature.


Larry

Do you know anybody that puts a period at the end of their name?


Andrew Keller

No, I bet. That's crazy. Why would you do that?


Larry

Oh, I want to start doing that. I read that I was like, You know what? start tightening the industry, put a period in my name.


Andrew Keller

Another one of the things they broke down is if you sign a nickname, you're fiercely independent. And it made me think of the notary is like, you can't sign a different name.


Larry

Like, how would you get all of a sudden you just start signing a name?


Andrew Keller

Yeah, like you just draw a wrench, instead of writing, Larry. I mean, but basically, your signature is your it was traditionally what your mark was like, make your mark. And so it doesn't really matter what your name is. We recently wrote a bunch of thank you cards. And I mean, as long as you can decipher the a and my name, you use context. You're like, well, that's probably Andrew, and the other ones, Nicole. So I think it's, I think, analyzing someone's handwriting. I'd go more into, but it was fun reading through this.


Larry

Well, it's interesting, he said, because after that experience with the notary, I kept thinking, you know what, it would be cool. If I had a signature signature like it would be a blur. Everybody like looked at me like oh, that's how Larry science there's not like anybody looks at it anyways, but I was thinking like, oh, would it be nice if I actually had a legitimate signature not scribble,


Andrew Keller

there's a guy I knew in college that would sign he would draw he had he was a really good artist, he would draw this little man every time for his signature on a credit card receipts, because it doesn't really matter. It's just confirming that someone signed this purchase signatures, I don't even think really matter. It's just a proof of human like, no one's gonna cross references. I don't think


Larry

hey, you know, you're making my point. This is great, because I can now do my signature like on a credit card and like put the purity of the


Andrew Keller

that's cool. You definitely you can do that. I mean, you can write, you could sign your name, Karen. You could sign your name any you could sign your name Donald and You can do whatever you want.


Larry

Well, you know, it's interesting because I was with someone, and recently and they gave me their, they're like, hey, go buy us a round of drinks, and they gave me their credit card. And I was like, that hadn't happened in a while. I was like, Oh, and I didn't really think about till they asked for the signature. And I was like, Oh, no, I gotta like, and you know, you just do the scribble thing. And nobody cares. No,


Andrew Keller

no one cares at all. I mean, even with loan documents. I mean, you're proving your ID, but I don't think it really matters. How you write it? And I don't know, I think it's more fun to analyze what people are another one a straight signatures if you draw straight your, your even tempered personality. What does that mean?


Larry

If the letters that make up your name are close together and create a short signature, it's because you're reactive and patient and have weak concentration, which is completely mean. I mean, literally, I just scribble something because I'm like, this is a waste of my time. But I've recently been thinking like, Hey, what's an extra five seconds to have a cool signature?


Andrew Keller

Right, but it? I mean, I agree with that. But in what instance, is it on the touchpad at Trader Joe's when you're checking out or is it? I don't even think you do those that much anymore with the chip. But if it's I don't know if it's, I had a picture from college of me running the Buffalo. And yeah, I printed it out. And I had everyone that was in the picture, sign it and I gave it to my parents and I said something like that. I think it matters what your signature looks like, for a credit card receipt. I don't know. I think I identify with the indecipherable signature, you get the a and I cross through the a and everything else is kind of just a wiggle, and maybe I am. Maybe I'm arrogant for thinking that doesn't make me arrogant, but I don't I don't know if my signature is. Maybe it's a little peek into my soul, but it's not.


Larry

It's a little peek. We get behind the door. You know, I was googling this subject. A little bit of where it really matters, obviously is for artists like artists and how they sign their paintings is a big deal.


Andrew Keller

Yeah, well, I mean, how to NF t people sign?


Larry

That's a one day I'll tell you how they sign they signed digitally, Andrew, they sign digitally, right, which is


Andrew Keller

zeros and ones. Yeah. Well, if you want a signature, please reach out. You can find us at reposted podcast on Facebook, Twitter, and the blockchain saying
