We all doodle from time to time, whether we are bored in a meeting or giving our hands something to do while watching the TV. But what you are doodling can be a window into your subconscious and can tell a lot about your mood and personality.
Scribbling love hearts will indicate that matters of the heart are important to you. Romantics often doodle hearts.
Drawing pretty flowers with a circular centre can suggest that family is important to you, whereas a circular centre and pointed petals can indicate a defensive personality. Having a collection of flowers gathered together shows you are likely to be a social person.
Heart and flower doodles can also show an impatient personality.
Birds, bees and butterflies indicate a free spirit that doesn’t want to be tied down with heavy responsibilities or difficult tasks.
Ladders and stairs are signs of an ambitious personality and a willingness to succeed in life. This can be in your line of work, your romantic attachments, family goals or a quest for overall happiness.
Drawing trains, cars, boats and planes can show a need or desire to escape and take a break from the events of day to day life.
It isn’t just what you draw though; where you draw your doodle, how big you draw your doodle and what sort of lines you draw can all make a difference too.
People who draw straight lines tend to have more self control and willpower than those who draw curved lines. Curved lines also indicate flexibility and a creative personality.
Criss crossed and slashed lines can indicate anger and depression, whereas softer and lighter lines can be a reflection of peacefulness and happiness.
A single object can represent you, but drawing more than one object that sets a scene often indicates how you view the world around you.
Drawing at the bottom of the page can show a pessimistic attitude with a need for security, whereas drawings at the top of the page are linked to dreams and aspirations. Doodles on the right hand side of the page are associated with the future and the left hand side, the past. Drawings in the centre can highlight a need to be the centre of attention.
