What does a person's signature say about them?

How and when did you develop your signature? Was it a conscious decision or something that developed after a long time of signing a lot of checks, birthday cards, legal documents, etc? Do you think your signature reflects your personality?

I'm in my early twenties but still use the "signature" I've been using since grade school. It's quite simple: I just write my name in easy-to-decipher cursive. It takes me a little bit of time and concentration to write it and while each letter is legible, if I sign two things in a row the signatures are prone to a few differences. I find this a bit too plain and uninspired, and am trying to come up with something more deliberate and forceful that resembles my name using fewer strokes and less concentration.
A lot of people I know have signatures that look important and/or professional and seem to come out the same way every time. Is it even possible to have an interesting signature or am I just overanalyzing?
