This sample of Hitler’s handwriting shows the deterioration of his signature over a series of years up to and including the end of the war. Notice that the writing is very pasty showing deep passions and energy. The writing slants to the right indicating an individual who is extremely emotional. The downhill slant of the last name is characteristic of depression and possible suicidal thoughts. Angularity in the writing shows an individual who can be inflexible and single-minded. Especially note the “x” in the writing. The “x”represents a preoccupation with death.
