Change Your Handwriting, Change Your Life

Several graphologists theorized, if you can study someone's handwriting and deduce ideas about his character, why can't you reverse the process? By modifying his handwriting, perhaps you can modify his character.Character sets the individual pattern of each handwriting and is inseparable from it; consequently, a voluntary handwriting change, once achieved, produces a corresponding change of character. How is this possible? The circuit established between brain and graphic gesture by the nervous system is two­way. Thus, the ability of the brain to influence the writing hand is reversible....

Early Cancer Detection through Graphology Analysis

“Handwriting is brain­ writing.” Graphologists explain that the brain is the director of our physical as well as our mental activity. Just as our writing reflects our personality, so
does it reflect certain aberrations in our physiology. It is widely accepted in medicine that with the development of cancer, certain neuromuscular disturbances of coordination take place. Since handwriting constitutes the tracing of neuromuscular coordination, the microscopic characteristics of handwriting strokes become an important method for examining human neuromuscular development...

The ‘t’ bar

Any other t bar you may come across will probably be only a variation of one of these, and with practice, you should be able to see into which category of t bar it fits...

Why Do I Attract Losers?

Graphology, handwriting analysis depicts a specific type of script. In a class by themselves are the capitals, initials, and the last letters of words. Man is in the habit of portraying himself in his writing. This portrait of man is most impressive in capitals
and the first letter of a word. There the writer exhibits himself with gusto and, at least unconsciously, with the idea and hope of impressing us. Let's delve into the significance of the first and last letters of written words. The first letter shows us the writer's "front," the way he looks at us and wants to be looked at, his intentions and also his pretensions. The last letter betrays the decision the writer has arrived at, his final standpoint, the result of his "labor."...

Graphology Handwriting Analysis – How to Win Friends

If one's writing leans neither rightward or leftward, we would be talking about a 'vertical writer,' one in the here and now. If the script veered to the right, this represents the future. Were it to veer to the left, it would point toward the past. However, this same word - for example, the word 'height' also reaches into upper and lower dimensions. Upper, middle, and lower areas are called dimension zones, and they make up the zonal area...

How the Alphabet is Evaluated

Each of the foregoing letters has something different in its form and, therefore, in the interpretation to be put upon it. Often the same meaning can be derived from several different letters in one person's handwriting. This is because the same characteristic form can appear in different letters. The reader should now be able to discern the meaning of any letter simply by knowing which form it should fit into.
Here are two examples of how it works...

The “i” Dot

When the capital letter I-the ego-is written huge, this is the image the writer has of himself. Surely he is extremely egocentric, a megalomaniac.

A block letter shows culture, someone who reads. This is the capital I found in most books.
The unadorned I shows nothing extra and similarly indicate the person who sticks to the simplest essentials...

Obama vs. Romney Graphological Evaluation

The flowing nature of President Obama’s handwriting suggests rhythm, bounce and charm. His huge signature is eye-catching. Graphologically speaking, this reflects a tremendous desire to be the center of attention.
