a boxy, insecure, wise ass, introverted doodler

here's a cold hard fact...
i'm a doodler. yep...a doodler! pretty much 
every paper..envelope..calendar..whatever.. is covered 
in doodles. case in point.. a scrap from my desk at work.

i'm not alone...there's even a doodlers anonymous.

evidently doodles can be analyzed just like handwriting
a quick search on google turned up these interpretations:

- Doodles of people tend to reflect the writer's self-image or body image.

- Doodles of houses can indicate how secure-or insecure-someone feels.

- Pictures of animals can show sensitivity to others' needs or feelings.

- Pictures of boxes can indicate organization and structure.

- Abstract images with lots of lines and angles can show that the person is a very
 critical thinker (being able to go from Point A to Point B), whereas abstracts that
 are more curved can show warmth, openness, and flexibility.

- Flowers can indicate growth and development-or its lack!
(One thing to consider: Are the flowers alive or dead?)

- Heavy pressure can show strength, decisiveness, and determination.

- Large doodles may be done by someone who is extroverted and
likes attention. Small doodles may come from someone who can
 focus well, has good motor coordination, and is more reserved.

so my body image is "boxy"....hmm sounds about right..
TWO houses...REALLY insecure!
an owl isn't really an animal but considered "wise"...wise ass? ..yeah
i do see some "boxy" square self is organized!
lots of angles AND curves.. my thinking appears a little ac/dc
there's some heavy pressure in there...determination...i gots it!
all this on a 4 x 6 inch scrap paper so... introverted....absolutely!
(which reminds me of a GREAT article by Eli Bishop on introverts.)

who knew doodling could be so informative.....
