“No one can get out of his own skin. We act as our psychological past, i.e., as our cerebral organization dictates. For this reason, we are bound to expose ourselves in the association experiment in exactly the same way as we do in our own handwriting.” C.G. Jung, 1906
Curiosity is natural in human beings, especially when they have a chance to learn more about themselves. Most of the clients I encounter, no matter what their profession, are intrigued with my ability to analyze their handwriting.
I first got interested in Graphoanalysis because I was amazed by the idea that it was possible to know all about somebody just from his or her handwriting. It has become an excellent tool in every facet of my career. As a Coach, Motivational Speaker and Trainer I have always indulged my fascination with human behavior. As I work with college students whether it be leadership training, team building or student development I find that I can be more effective using my handwriting expertise. There have been times when I’m able to walk into a session with an understanding of the participants before I meet them. I often have them send me two full pages of their handwriting (cursive only) before the session and their individual traits, characteristics, and behavior become an open book. My intricate analyzation of the slant, letters, circles, spacing, size, shapes, margins, and loops in each individual’s particular handwriting gives me an edge.
I quickly place them in categories such as: emotional, practical, or logical. Then I analyze whether they are compatible or incompatible?
I also look for the following:
- Those who approach life in a similar manner, and those who may have difficulty getting along.
- Those who lie easily, and those who are truthful.
- Those who are action-oriented, and determined, versus those who are methodical and passive.
- Those who are outgoing and those who are reserved.
These deductions are only the tip of the iceberg!
A good graphologist needs technical skill and interpretive skill. Being able to interpret properly is crucial, because I use it in a variety of areas–i.e. testifying in the courtroom, depicting forgery, fradulence, or psychological disturbance–in business for hiring, teambuilding, and employee compatibility. In education where self criticism, worry and anxiety prevail. Once I put all of the configurations together it must be accurate.
You may notice that your handwriting changes. It has nothing to do with your personality and has everything to do with your emotions on that particular day, or during that particular week.
Is your writing legible or illegible? If someone can read all of your handwriting than it’s legible. If someone can only read parts of it than it’s partly legible and partly illegible. What does it mean if your handwriting is legible? It means that you have a desire to communicate. The more legible, the better you are at communicating.
The more illegible, the more you tend to be a poor communicator of your thoughts and feelings.
I’m going to give you an opportunity to analyze yourself. You won’t be able to interpret your personality entirely, but you will get some idea of how you think, feel and behave, and it will be fun. Write a full page sample of your handwriting (in cursive) on a piece of paper. Now you are ready to anjalyze yourself or a friend!
