Graphology is a pseudoscience that tries to describe the personality of an
individual and to determine general characteristics about the character, the
nature of emotions, intelligence and professional skills by examining the
handwriting. Furthermore, according to graphologist, it could be used by
psychologists as a new way to study mental disorders.
I had find this topic interesting because handwriting is a faithful expression of
the personality and it lets you know, deeply, how a person is. It can be useful
when choosing a teamwork, friends or even your boyfriend/girlfriend and,
besides, it can help you to improve, personal of professionally, yourself and
others just by practicing a new way of handwriting.
The study of graphology is focused on eight main categories, which are the
following: order, dimension, form, tendency, direction, speed, and pressure.
First of all, I will explain each of these categories starting with “order”. Order
refers to the ability to adapt to their environment, follow and respect social
norms and most important, it shows if someone is capable to share in his/her
plans or ideas with others. This can be analyzed from the paragraph, it could be
together either up, down right, left, etc.
Then, we have “dimension” that is the category where the personality of a
personas is shown. For example: If words are written bigger than the average,
it means that the personas is sociable. On the contrary if a person has a tiny
word handwriting, it makes reference to a person who is shy or sharp-eyed. It is
worth mentioning also that writing enlarging letters reflects a proud and
aggressive person.
In third place we can talk about “form”. But why is it important for us to know
that? Form is the category that reveals the behavior and image on the
individual. Angular forms shows if someone is aggressive or independent and
curve forms refers to a gentle and graceful person. There are also other forms
as typesetting and filiform.
Sometimes we don’t even realized why we write as we write, sometimes we
just ignore those facts when writing. It could be because our principal objective
is to write what teacher says or copy fast notes.
Inclination tends to reveal your real capacity of introducing yourself to others
who never interacted with you before. Isn’t it fantastic? Letters have to be
tilted to the right if you want to show yourself as an extrovert, collaborator and
impatient subject or they can be tilted to the left if you wish the opposite
reaction, I mean shy or reserved. So, there you go.
Another category, which is one of my favorites, is “direction” because it tells us
how the mood and stability of somebody is, for example, in an stable and
serene mood a person will write horizontally, upward is for somebody who is

optimist and active. This is the category where we notice the quantity of letters that can be written in one minute. (That scares right?) Well. it could also inform to others if we are thinking constantly on a topic or even if we are aggressive or passive. . it means that the person can be depressed or it can be pessimistic. Less than 100 letters per minute tells to us that the individual is passive. we have found the pressure. if we want to make a good impression. let’s talk about speed. we only have to write correctly or to ensure our reader knows about graphology. write more than 100 letters per minute denotes a very big capacity to assimilate events or issues and also shows intelligence. finally if the direction is falling. conversely. Last but not least important. Now. careful and a good handworker and. pressure can blow the whistle instantly of the status of our self-confidence.
