The handwriting on the ransom note shows evidence of possible organic brain syndrome which could be a result of substance abuse (i.e., alcohol, cocaine, or marijuana, which have a short-acting effect on the brain).

The writing at the beginning of the note is substantially different from that at the end. At the end, the writing is much more natural, and the wording has a tone of familiarity. The unusual spacial arrangement (letter and word spacing is highly variable, as is the right margin), muddy ductus (line of writing), and slack rhythm is often seen in the handwritings of criminals.

What all this indicates is someone who has poor ego boundaries and whose reality testing is flawed. There is evidence of acute anxiety at first, which gradually changes into close to normal functioning at the end of the letter. We see fear of the future and desperate attempts at regaining lost control over an altered perception of reality. The letter writer feels socially inadequate but there is an intense, hidden aggression that pops out without warning. The aggression has a sadistic quality and suggests someone who could very likely be involved in ritualistic sexual acting out.

Patsy Ramsey's handwriting (notes published in tabloids) reveals an image-conscious person for whom control is of paramount importance. Her public persona is unwavering stoicism. Looking good and being perfect is not only crucial to her emotional well-being, it is all there is. She has a heavy layer of charm and good manners, and would feel humiliated at showing her feelings in public.

Regarding the question of whether the ransom note could have been written by Patsy Ramsey, there are certainly some important similarities, not so much in individual letter forms, but in the more fundamental elements. However, comparing a printed sample to a cursive one is comparing apples to oranges. It would be important to examine Mrs. Ramsey's handprinting in order to form an accurate opinion on whether or not she authored the ransom note.

If there was strong enough evidence to suggest that the two handwritings were done by the same person, some type of dissociative disorder could not be ruled out.

Self-Image

Rather than being at the mercy of external forces, Patsy is determined to remain in command of her feelings and actions at all times. Her sense of purpose and willpower are strong, indicating that she has the capacity to apply effort toward achievement. If integrity means staying true to oneself, then integrity is a quality that Patsy possesses. She is disposed to choose the course of action she believes is best for the whole group, rather than for just herself. If all do not notice her accomplishments, it does not trouble her. A personal sense of pride is enough reward for her.

Intellectual Preferences

Despite a desire to be more relaxed or light-hearted, her basic common sense takes over and simply will not allow it. If there is not a sound, practical reason for something, she is not going to accept it. More intuitive types might view her as a stick-in-the-mud because she does not want to accept their visceral approach. She relies on logic for answers and denies anything less than concrete facts. She is not much of a dreamer, but that does not mean she doesn't have her private hopes and wishes.

Emotional Responses

Patsy sees herself as the victim of quicksilver changes of mood. She has cultivated suffering as an art form and has a certain attachment to the deep-rooted inner conflicts that play such an important role in her life. Patsy generally expresses her feelings and opinions when appropriate and holds back when it is not. A sense of empathy motivates her to lend a listening ear to those who need it. Yet, she is careful not to allow others' problems to become burdensome to her. When circumstances leave Patsy feeling discouraged or disappointed, she is able to work through problems in a reasonable time frame and regain her sense of hopefulness. If she is really excited about something, Patsy does not mind showing her enthusiasm. Otherwise, her expression remains impassive. She tends not to dig deeply into anything, perhaps because she does not want to become involved. Or, it might be that she fears she lacks the capacity to deal with anything too intense.

Defense Mechanisms

She may be friendly and congenial, but even after a long period of acquaintance, one can never say they really know her. There is a strong reluctance to share anything of a personal nature, and the invisible line she draws keeps others from asking questions. When there are problems with other people she avoids dealing with them directly. Instead, she will change the subject or try to divert the attention of those involved into something less stressful. Fear of failing or looking silly may dampen her enthusiasm for trying new activities or meeting new people. It takes several successful attempts at a new skill before she is comfortable enough to openly use what she has learned. She does her best to stay on an even keel and not become too anxious in response to stressors. However, whether or not she is successful in maintaining her equilibrium depends very much on the situation.

Red Flags

Her tough act is just that--an act to cover up her true feelings of insecurity.

Self-Image

Driven by a profound need to serve his own imperatives, Note Writer does not always consider the consequences of his actions. Or, he may purposely make the wrong choice if he sees it as in his interests, and simply disregard the consequences. His willpower or sense of purpose is not well developed, making it difficult for him to realize his goals once obstacles get in the way of success.

Intellectual Preferences

A predictable routine drives him crazy. Crisis management, where snap decisions have to be made on the spot, are much more in line with his temperament. More pragmatic than idealistic, he mostly sticks to what he knows; but when that is not enough, he is capable of using his ingenuity to solve problems. When he gets an "Aha!" experience, he does not quite trust his intuition--at least, not until all the facts are in.

Emotional Responses

Note Writer may spend a great deal of time and energy obsessing about his emotions. He evidently has undergone some very painful experiences in the past and cannot seem to stop thinking about them, although there is no attempt to 'work through' the difficulties and leave them behind. His moods and responses change from moment to moment, going from high to low and back up again in a matter of moments. His broad-mindedness can lead him into trouble. He will believe anything you tell him.

Defense Mechanisms

Note Writer hangs onto everything, from old newspapers to relationships that should probably have been tossed out long ago. Note Writer is engaged in an ongoing conflict between a compulsion to act on his impulses and the need to control them. Most often the pressure to act is too strong to resist and, in the end, he is angry with himself because he caved in.

Red Flags

Quick to find fault with others, Note Writer will point out what he perceives as their shortcomings without hesitation. The writer is the type of person who likes to take risks and dare to be different. However, a little bit of this attitude can go a long way. His idea of being 'different' may be outside the realm of the socially acceptable. Note Writer is a "stimulation junkie" who never sits still. It is as if he fears that if he stops moving, something awful will happen. The writer lacks the necessary perseverance to overcome unforeseen obstacles. He will keep going for a while, but knowing just what will cause him to quit is impossible to predict. It may be one thing this time and something completely different the next. His unpredictability makes counting on him a big mistake.
