Introduction to Graphology
is the study of handwriting in order to analyze a person’s character.
Real handwriting experts are known as forensic document examiners not
graphologists. Graphology first came into being around about 3,000 years
ago by the Chinese. The Romans also used graphology.
Things that are considered when studying hand writing is the letter
spacing, slants and heights of letters, ending strokes, loops and dotted
Is and crossed Ts. Forensic document examiners often examine writing for
forgery and authenticity.
Graphologists believe that there is a connection between a person’s
unconscious mental state and their handwriting; meaning that the
handwriting can tell as much about a person as palmistry and astrology
Graphology however is not very reliable as people do not have just one
way of writing, some people use different styles of writing for
different reasons. If you were writing a letter to someone superior or
an employer you would use your very best writing; whereas notes would be
your quick common writing.
