What Does Your Doodling Style Say About You?


We all have our go-to doodles. You know, those familiar shapes and pictures that seem to appear by magic on scraps of paper when you're not even aware that you're scribbling. As it turns out, what you choose to doodle can say a lot about your personality!

Your doodle style: lots of lines

You are: The precision penciller

What it says about you: No messy squiggles for you — you like to keep things neat and tidy! And when you're not doodling, we bet you can be found crossing things off of your meticulously crafted to-do list.

Your doodle style: geometric shapes

You are: The 3-D shape shifter

What it says about you: If you doodle cubes, 3-D gems and mazes, you’ve got the perfect balance of creativity with an analytic edge. A natural problem solver, you love building things and coming up with clever solutions.

Your doodle style: swirls + squiggles

You are: The whimsical wanderer

What it says about you: You can absolutely get lost in doodling a sea of swirls on a sheet of paper. Life is a winding road, and you’re an adventurer who likes to see how things unfold. It’s not about the destination for you — it's all about the journey.

Your doodle style: inspired by nature

You are: The Earth artist

What it says about you: While you might not be a full-time tree-hugger, the natural world definitely has a special place in your heart. You love observing the beauty of the outdoors, and would rather stop and smell the flowers than be right on time for everything.

Your doodle style: unicorns, hearts + stars

You are: The magic maker

What it says about you: If your scraps are covered in hearts, stars, and other sweet and magical little shapes, you might, in fact, be part unicorn. You see the world through a rose-colored (and glitter-coated) lens. You actively seek out magic and delight, and adore rainbow sprinkles.

Your doodle style: stylized words

You are: The word wizard

What it says about you: Words are your thing! Maybe you draw bubble-style letters, ornately decorate words or try your hand at faux calligraphy. If you’re drawn to words and letters in your doodling, you’re likely a creative who loves to express ideas and tell stories. Doodling is a way that you can let your voice be heard!
