The Chinese believe that a person’s handwriting says a lot about them. As someone with terrible handwriting, I’m inclined to think/hope that isn’t the case. But if you’re one of the people that believes you can tell something about someone from their handwriting, then enjoy this window into the personalities of ten of China’s top tech CEOs:


Baidu CEO Robin Li


Tencent CEO Pony Ma


Former Alibaba CEO Jack Ma1378987278981

Sohu CEO Charles Zhang


Netease CEO Ding Lei


Qihoo CEO Zhou Hongyi (left)


Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun


Sina CEO Charles Chao


Giant Interactive CEO Shi Yuzhu


Giant Interactive CEO Chen Tianqiao

So who’s got the best looking handwriting? I suppose it’s all a matter of taste, but personally I’m rather partial to the mad-looking scribblings of Jack Ma. To each his own, though!
