An expert has delved into the hidden meaning behind scribbles to reveal what they say about our personalities.

Doodle specialist in graphology and consulting, Tracey Trussell, says that our scribbles can show that we have a selfish side, we are feeling pressure at work, or even that we have skeletons in our closets.

The shapes and objects drawn, the color of the ink used and the position of the scribble on the page can provide clues about our mental state, life perspectives, motivations and more.

An arc shape, for example, may indicate that someone is reserved, while the scribbled backs, going over their scribble in the same place, are often a sign of overwork.
