Do your writing on white un-lined bonded paper. It may be good to use A4 size papers. Write on a smooth surface or table top in a comfortable sitting position, in a calm and relaxed manner.
You may place extra papers underneath the sample sheet so that nothing distorts your writing from underneath. Make use of your favourite writing instrument. Ballpoint pens are good unless you do not like them.
Fill the entire sheet unless said otherwise. This should be spontaneous, not copied. Describe some recent activity just completed or anything that is of interest to you. A specimen usually should be a minimum of 20 lines. If you have different types of signature, give all of them. If you have more than one style of writing, generate another sample of everything you write. Take a sheet and put your signature. Take a sheet and put your signature and the date of today.
Write at least 20 lines and sign it. Write at least 20 lines and sign and date it. Write a paragraph of at least 10 lines about yourself and deliberately insert a factual lie. Write 20 lines about your past. Write 20 lines about your present. Write 20 lines about your future. Draw a wheel on a sheet. Write a letter to the chief minister of your state.
Write a letter to your friend. Put two figures on a sheet: Write a page about the weather and the landscape. Write a page about the things you like in your friends. Write a page about what you do not like in people. Write slowly 20 lines on a sheet and write fast the same sentences on a different sheet. Bring whatever written materials of you or others in your possession.
Of course, one can also do document identification having learned the basics of graphology. Handwriting analysis helps you to find out the characteristics of persons. Therefore handwriting analysis is a great help for a counsellor. When a handwriting is too variant or too exact that will be of interest to a graphologist and a counsellor. Humans have always been intrigued by human variability and uniqueness of the individual. We can use graphology to determine a complete personality and character profile of any person.
Interest in handwriting started years back. The one who can properly be called the father of graphology is Camillo Baldi who carried out systematic observations on the manner of handwriting and wrote in , the first graphological essay.
His disciple J. In addition to handwriting, the graphologists study doodles, drawings, sculptures, and paintings. These studies give insight into the physical, mental and emotional states of the writer or artist. Although graphologists can study all graphic movements, they mostly concentrate on handwriting. Because practically everyone writes but not everyone paints or sculpts or draws. Our handwritings are unique. Whether you write it with your hand or feet or mouth, it is all the same.
They all will look alike; because they are your handwritings. The handwriting is not done by your hand or feet but by your brain. What we write at a moment is an instant photo of how we think, feel, and behave.
Your act of writing contains spontaneous actions for the purpose of communicating your ideas. Therefore your writing is an expressive behaviour and communicates your personality characteristics.
Writing is a learned habit. The look and feel of your writing is your style of writing. But in drawing or painting they are under our control. Usually the majority of graphometric measurements are stable from test to retest and consistent with time.
Nobody can ever duplicate your writing rhythm.
Because it is basically impossible to replicate your pen-stroke construction and speed without detection. In projective tests what is unconscious comes to the fore and expresses itself in the conscious. When you write, you spontaneously construct random parts, for example strokes, to form known patterns which are letters, in order to communicate ideas which are words.
Thus the words written as a sentence has an imposed organization which conveys a creative purpose which is a message. Your writing has all the elements necessary for a projective test.
It has first of all interpretative element which is generating meaningless patterns that is simply drawing strokes. Secondly it has constructive element that is to place known parts into patterns. At this level you write letters, link letters and construct words. Thirdly it has a cathartic element which is projecting and releasing emotions. This happens simply in writing. Fourthly you have a constitutive element which is the imposition of organization upon chaotic material by maintaining sentence structure, filling in spaces with capitals, periods, baseline, starting and finishing lines.
Finally there is the creative element which generates a coherent message which is the purpose of writing. Our writing is in a way rote memory and thus it is automatic. In that sense, they are unconscious. What was consciously learned has become unconscious. We do our writing without thinking about it.
It is a learned habit that expresses itself in our writing. Anything consciously practised for a long period of time can become automatic and we do not perform those acts consciously as we did earlier. Take for example, typing. Initially you learn each letter separately and consciously and are aware of each letter as you type. But once you have sufficiently learned and practised, then when you type something, you are not aware of each letter but automatically you type the correct letters.
Thus the typing you do now is not consciously directed. This is what happens to our writing also. Most often our writing is automatic unless of course we want to consciously write something.
We can also write consciously. Have you ever tried different styles of putting your signature? At times you printed your writing for the sake of legibility. These are conscious writing. Thus we have both conscious and unconscious elements in our writing; the unconscious part is by par the most. We can analyze both our conscious and unconscious part of our self in our handwriting.
For example, you wrote: In the same way I would say that the unconscious never lies. The unconscious expresses the truthful aspects of our personality. The conscious may or may not tell the truth. You give stature to things you like and diminish the stature to things that you dislike. To determine the veracity of a written document look for a cluster, context, and culture. Once I was supervising an assembly of men voting to elect their head and his four councillors.
After the five elections, they had to choose an assistant to the head from among the four councillors. The fourth councillor asked me if he could write the four names on the black board.
He went and wrote the first three names in small letters and the fourth name which is his, he wrote in capital letters.
This of course was an unconscious act. Therefore what appears to be conscious need not be conscious also. This should make one cautious in making a judgement. For example, your IQ is fixed, likewise your aptitudes, temperament and identity are all fixed.
Did you ever realize that your handwriting has an identity? Now, imagine that I ask all of you who are seated in front of me say, persons to write a paragraph and not sign it or put your name, and I collect them and mix them at random and ask you to take your paper. This we can do just because we are able to identify our handwriting. Or go back home and search for the old handwritings of yours written many years back, perhaps when you were a young person, you will understand it as your own handwriting, in spite of the changes your handwriting has undergone over the years.
What you wrote as a young person and what you write now as an adult or elderly person have the same identity even though the handwritings are not just the same.
There are unfixed traits as well in our handwriting. They keep changing depending upon the conditions. Your abilities, attitudes, moods, beliefs, motivational level and physical conditions are unfixed traits. You are physically sick one day and healthy another day.
You have drugs in your system today and you are free tomorrow. Today you are angry and yell at someone and tomorrow you are pacific.
The handwriting should have been written under normal writing conditions. The interpretations apply only to adult handwriting. For, children are learning to write and their neurological conditions are just maturing. Therefore we do not analyse the handwritings of children. There are four primary graphic elements out of which we have graphic structure.
Those four primary graphic elements are: It is on this imaginary line that letters rest on dividing upper and lower areas while moving forward to the right. The baseline serves the purpose of dividing vertical placement and to directing movement. It represents reality, threshold of awareness, foundation for movements and living, attitudes towards life experiences and activities. Graphologists believe that any vertical placement above and below the baseline is a division between two realities like intangible and tangible values, abstract and concrete concepts, philosophical and physical ideas and personal beliefs and personal relationships.
Any movement horizontally along the baseline represents your reaction to experiences, living values, time demands, and learning. Right motion is to advance, expand, and progress and left motion is to revert, constrict, and regress.
An enclosure is formed when a line or lines border an area. An enclosure reveals your imagination, concept enlargement, and idea expansion. There are three known basic forms of enclosures, the loop, the circle, and the stem.
If you take the loop, there are upper and lower vertical loops. These are enclosures which are formed by starting forward and upward, moving backward, and returning forward and downward with the crossing strokes at the baseline. They are formed by a line enclosing an area by starting forward and downward, moving backward, and returning forward and upward with the crossing strokes at the baseline.
There are upper circle and lower circle. They are formed by line or lines enclosing an area by starting backward and downward, moving forward, and returning backward and upward meeting or touching at the top. When you have a proportional enclosure, you have a left-right balance and symmetry.
They control convention order. Likewise a period followed by a capital letter, signature, spaces allotted to margins and starting at the upper left moving to the right then downwards left to right are all imposed structures.
Practically it refers to pressure. It is defined by how much force one applies to the writing surface with the writing instrument. It does not denote the hand grip pressure. It simply means how hard you press down on the paper. It represents your capacity for vigorous activities, intellectual vitality, physiological energy, sexual passion, and emotional intensity. The thickness of your stroke will indicate your sensory capacity. The straightness of your stroke will mean a firm approach whereas a curve a soft approach.
The direction of a stroke is understood as upward towards top, downward toward bottom, forward towards right and backward towards left. It simply means slant. The use of graphology extends to understanding health issues, morality, past experiences, hidden talents, and mental problems. Kinesics is the science of interpreting body language. To judge a gesture first we should look for a cluster of gestures that supports one single gesture. For example, if a person feels attracted and is interested in the other, then there may be a preening gesture, a light smile, and exposure of certain parts of the body.
These are all clusters that confirm one single gesture. Secondly, we should see the context. It is to check whether the gesture fits into the context.
For example, if you judge a gesture to be an angry one, then there should be a situation where one normally will get angry like the context of an argument. Thirdly, we should know what that gesture means in a culture.
What is understood as a certain thing in one culture, may mean another thing in another culture. The same principles should apply to handwriting analysis. First of all we should have many samples written over a period of time under different circumstances.
What will cluster mean in the context of graphology? It is not just one sample that is analysed but many samples.
Also a handwriting generally must exhibit several traits that mean the same thing. For example, lying. It should have long space, sudden change in slant and the like. Secondly we should consider the context. What will be the context here? We should look into under what circumstances these were written.
For example a heavy pressure written at a time when you retired after fighting with your spouse is an example. It confirms the context of an angry moment. Or you printed your name on a list of persons going for a picnic. Here the printing is not to hide yourself but to reveal yourself; you wanted to be legible and clear.
Thirdly what is the culture? Handwriting is an instant photography. It is your self-portrait. Your handwritings are photos taken of you in different moods and situations. It is exactly like observing the body language of a person. The body language may be fleeting but handwriting is made permanent. Putting together graphology and kinesics you have a wealth of information about individuals before they ever utter a word.
In this book, a few of the specific interpretations will apply only to the Palmer method of writing or to its variations. However, graphology interpretation based on universal concepts are applicable to any language that is written from left to right. We can identify five graphology inferences. They are: Physiological inference, 2.
Universal concepts inference, 4. Psychological inference, and 5. Scientific inference. Let us consider each one of them. A simple way to find out if the writer is physically or psychologically affected is, look at the entire text of writing. If the whole writing is abnormal and out of the way and shaken, then the body is affected in one way or other physically affected. If only certain words, phrases or sentences are affected and are quite different from the rest of the writing, then the reason behind is that the writer is psychologically affected.
The change could be in the slant, or size, or margin, or baseline or shape, or distance. Universal Concepts Inferences When we make out if a person is feeling more up or down, or holds back feelings, heavy handed, organized, narrow minded, and friendly, we make use of universal concepts.
When a person leans back in writing that is slanting to the left, that writer is holding back something from others.
If a person has a pleasing layout, then that person is organized. Psychological Inferences When we make out who likes whom in a number of listed persons, or who is telling the truth, we are making psychological inferences. If you make a list of persons working under you, then if one of the names is written slightly bigger than the other names or if one of the names is written slightly smaller than other names, these are indications of your liking or not liking those persons.
These are psychological inferences. Scientific Inferences When we make out who is a lawbreaker, or who is a liar, then we are using scientific inferences. A liar will hesitate and slow down and even stop before writing a lie. These conclusions were arrived at after analyzing many of the handwritings of law breakers and liars. It is good to know that there are a number of traits and a number of combinations of traits that can be learnt. It is only a beginning.
This book gives you enough knowledge to stand on your own and learn more. Any written specimen portrays personality descriptions and behaviour predictions.
However a written specimen cannot explain why it is so. It has been noted that destroying a written specimen where you have expressed emotionally charged issues and concerns has therapeutic value.
Modification of personality by suggesting behavioural traits can be achieved by controlled writing which is a repetitive act. Usually what is suggested for behaviour change is to practice a particular written pattern for twenty minutes each day for thirty days. Handwriting is dependent upon the affects of drugs, disease, situation anxiety, menstruation, electric shock treatment, traumatic experiences, maturity, hypnosis, and fatigue. They in fact modify personality. As a caution, do not attempt on children whose neurological conditions are growing and also on teenagers whose handwriting tends to be inconsistent from moment to moment.
There are people who think that no personality test has adequately, accurately, or scientifically proven validity in predicting human behaviour or actions especially the complex traits of dishonesty and integrity.
Behaviour is understood to be determined by trait combinations, the graphic indicators, and is situation specific. So a particular situation can alter the response. Assessment of personality is not the same as the mathematical calculations like two and two make four. The assessment is an indicator. It is always good to keep this fact in mind and be cautious.
With this introduction I would invite you to go through the pages. Where necessary, practise writing the examples by yourself to know how it feels like writing in a particular mode. Wish you all the best. The exercises you have done unbiased at the beginning of the sessions will provide opportunities to concretely analyse your handwriting and thus become conversant in analysing handwriting and understand personalities.
They are 1. Physical, 2. Mental, 3. PHYSICAL14 The physical dimension measures our identity, the state of physical health, and the presence of drugs, alcohol, or other foreign substances in the body.
Identity We are asked to write cursive instead of printing. Whether the connecting lines are wider or narrower between letters is the point.
These distances are fairly maintained in our writing. The distance maintained between these letters with the connecting thread indicates my connection pattern. Since cursive writing reveals our identity, those who write anonymous letters prefer to print rather than write cursively.
The pressure pattern demonstrates where we have applied more pressure and where we have applied less pressure. The pressure patterns in words are fairly maintained throughout our writing.
Therefore mainly the connection patterns and the pressure patterns give our identity. The meaning of the differences is explained on this webpage. Large signature: this shows a sense of high status -which may in real life be the case, but in terms of the signature that is not the point — of having value.
If the signature is larger than the handwriting, the writer carries a pretence of higher self esteem — and confidence — than is the case. Medium size signature same as handwriting : shows a balance of sense of value and modesty. If it is the same size as the script it shows someone with a knowledge of, and acceptance of, how he or she is perceived.
When this person is in public, they do not put on an act. Small signature: the writer expects little esteem from other people. This may imply a high degree of self-motivation and disregard for what people think, but is more likely to be a sign of low self-confidence.
If the signature is smaller than the script, the writer does not expect recognition of their worth. It may be this is a deliberate holding back, a defensive posture. Writing your full name in your signature reveals a more informal, relaxed approach to life — the writer likes to get on first name terms quickly. In handwriting, legibility is, subconsciously, a matter of choice. The same applies in the signature. If the illegible signature closes a business letter, it shows that the writer does not consider their name to be of great importance to the matter in hand: they are a mere functionary.
The personal signature may be very different. If the surname is more legible than the first name the writer shows reserve on first contact with people — a holding back of familiarity until they get to know a person better. A first name more legible than the surname reveals a more approachable, direct person who will make a great effort to be friendly. Complete legibility shows open and straightforward social attitudes. The writer is happy to be accepted as they are. Illegible script, illegible signature: a deliberate attempt to create an aura of mystery and enigma around the writer, who enjoys the idea of being difficult to know.
They do not want you to know what they are really thinking! Draw the obvious conclusion!
