If eyes are a mirror to your soul, then handwriting must be a window. It might sound funny, but our handwriting tells so much about us, that a skilled professional might see through you only by looking at your lettering. Cursive handwriting can tell about your personality, state of mind, traumatic events, hand-eye coordination and even bone structure that affects the way you hold the pen. It can be determined by analyzing the way we dot our I's and cross our T's, how you write the lowercase and uppercase letters and many other factors. Also, incredibly neat handwriting might not mean that you are at peace with yourself, but also that you might have an OCD or are a pedantic person.

Science and psychology aside, it is always very aesthetically pleasing to marvel at someone's nice handwriting, especially with the modern technology forcing us to type, rather than write, thus lessening our penmanship skills. To celebrate these rarely seen masters, we've put together this list of exceptional calligraphy and handwriting styles from the penmanshipporn subreddit. Which one is the most exquisite? Vote or submit your own photos below--otherwise, if you're looking for more perfect symmetry, check out this perfectionists' list. And don't forget that mastering good handwriting can impress people as much as a firm handshake.

This gave me chills. More so because it's written in a math copy and it's all the more beautiful.

This person's handwriting makes math look beautiful, even relaxing. And I hate math.
