Here’s What Your Unconscious Scribbles Say About You!


You know the different doodles that we draw unconsciously while talking on the phone or in a meeting, but did you know that those doodles say a lot about your personality and current mood? Those scribbles actually have different meanings based on their shapes and patterns, and here are some of them.


Drawing faces can be a sign of introverted personality. Comic faces are usually drawn by men, indicating a desire to be the center of attention.

Flowers, clouds and sun

Drawing perky-looking flowers and the sun indicates that you’re satisfied about what’s going on and probably fantasize about the good things awaiting you in your future. These scribbles reveal your positive attitude and the fact that you are in good spirits.


Flighty and romantic, fluttering butterflies, birds and bees suggest you don’t want to be tied down — or landed with difficult tasks or problems.


Drawing a heart indicates you’re in love with love.


Symbols of ambition and a willingness to work your way methodically ‘up the ladder’ in life, drawings of stairs and ladders also often indicate you have an important, long-term task in hand. They can represent a spiritual quest, too, perhaps a desire to be happier or more relaxed.

Random abstract shapes

A random pattern might be a sign of a random mind.


Arrows symbolize a vector, your direction in life. If the arrow is pointing upwards — you’re a people oriented person, if it points down — you’re self-focused; a leftward arrow means that you’re stuck in the past, and if it points to the right, you look forward to the future.

Ships or planes

Doodling ships or planes indicates a desire to run away from where you are or how you feel.


A nice, neat house says you are happy at home, while untidy lines, asymetrical shapes or an absence of windows suggests an unhappy home life, possibly a feeling of being trapped.

Your signature

Signature doodlers are egocentric and arrogant. Doodling your signature often, without thinking, during a conversation or while trying to solve a problem, reveals a self-centered personality.

Squares, diamonds and other geometric figures

You have clearly defined goals and beliefs and rarely keep your opinions to yourself. You are stubborn and insistent. You’re usually overly cautious and careful.


Just as patterns made up of soft, flowing, curvy lines suggest a romantic, female approach to things, patterns made up of lots of straight lines, indicate more aggressive masculine characteristics.

Zigzags are a particularly common doodle and show energetic thinking and a desire to get on with things.

Stick figure

Commonly doodled by highly successful people, the simple stick figure reveals someone who is in control of  their emotions and incredibly focused on their goals in life.
