The Link Between Handwriting Analysis And Personality
When you write, you are not performing a simple physical function. The decision to write originates in your brain. The message is then carried along the nerve tissues down the hand and arm to the fingers, and you pick up your pen and write. As you write, you obey the guidance of your brain as it sends its orders through to the pen you are holding. As a result, handwriting is programmed by your brain. It could be called Brain writing.
Handwriting analysis or graphology (the generic term) reveals a writer's personality and character. It can be a positive tool for self-understanding and self-development. In addition, it is possible to enrich your life by consciously reprogramming parts of your handwriting.
When you were in the third grade, you most likely began to write using the Palmer technique. You and your classmates tried to emulate your teacher's writing, but you rarely succeeded. The truth is that it was impossible for you to duplicate your teacher's exact writing style. Why? Even at that tender age, your personality had begun to invade your writing style. Your subconscious mind and personality traits were already beginning to influence what flowed from your brain to the pen and onto the paper. Many of us also were inhibited, to some degree, from allowing our own thoughts to flow with spontaneity and ease.
Israel and the countries of Western Europe are highly advanced in their use of handwriting analysis. In Europe, and especially Germany, graphology has always been studied in connection with the subject of psychology. In the United States, it has been taken less seriously until the recent arrival of many students of this science.
Slowly but surely, it is moving into the realm where it belongs as a valuable psychometric tool. Psychiatrists and psychologists are using this science in their diagnoses. Along with other projective techniques, such as the Rorschach Ink Blot Test, an analysis of a subject's handwriting is being used. This is helping to throw further light on his character and habits which may not be readily discerned by other test

* There are some things that handwriting analysis will not reveal. It cannot, for example, be used to determine the age or sex of the subject. In order to make an accurate analysis, a graphologist will need to know this information in advance.
Graphology must never be confused with clairvoyance. Graphologists are neither fortune-tellers nor prophets. It is absolutely not possible to predict a person's future by examining his or her writing. Handwriting analysis only reveals information about a person's present and past self.
The evidence is clear that we are moving forward graphologically. It is welcome progress, for the study of handwriting is a step in helping to discover the truth about ourselves, and only in knowing the truth can we be truly free.
