Graphology is the study of handwriting to uncover personality traits and the predominant emotions in the writer. It is a branch of psychology, and is used by many forensic departments and organizations such as the CIA and FBI to profile suspects. This article will give you some quick examples of how to use graphology to uncover a person’s secrets.
Look at the ‘m’s – if the bottom parts of this letter have the shape of v-wedges (sharp, not rounded), then the person is inclined towards analytical thinking, and generally will evaluate the information provided well before making a decision. Is the writing very small? If yes, the person is a very concentrated individual and can focus intensely on one task. Many mathematics and physicist tend to have small handwriting.
Is the last leg of an ‘h’ thicker than the rest of the letter, indicating that the writer used more pressure on the downward final stroke? This indicates bluntness, and the writer is likely to be a person who likes to conclude matters and does not hesitate to say what they feel. Look at the ‘e’s – do they have wide loops? If yes, this indicates that the writer is broadminded and has a liberal view of things, free from bigotry and prejudice.
Look at the handwritten ‘t’s. Are the t bars missing? If yes, the person is forgetful. Look at the ‘m’s – do they have an initial wavy upper area preceding the two arches? This indicates a tendency for humour.
Is the writing strong, with the lines thicker than average? Line thickness depends on pressure applied, and a heavy line (strong pressure) indicates that the writer is passionate, proactive, and has a strong libido. Look at ‘t’s and ‘d’s – are the stems significantly higher than the rest of writing? If yes, this indicates vanity and the writer is likely to be narcissistic and has an excessive high regard for his/herself.
As you can see, graphology is not as complex as some people try to have you believe. Mainly, professional handwriting analysts try hard to keep the knowledge to themselves so that they can keep charging exorbitant rates for their services. Hence, they actively try to discredit books about graphology and try to make us believe that you need to spend years and years of training under them to be able to analyze handwriting… but now you know better!
