A century ago, many Americans associated handwriting analysis with occult practices such as horoscopes and fortune telling. Those people did not see it as a useful psychological tool with scientific backing. Handwriting analysis has a long history, dating back to Nero’s reign. The first book on the subject was printed in 1552. It has been studied since the apex of science in this century. People now recognize the validity of behavioral science and have a more balanced view of it.
Psychology teaches us about individuals in general, including the reasons behind our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors. But that’s only the beginning; a person’s handwriting contains something incredibly intimate that indicates their character, temperament, state of mind, and literally hundreds of other unique personality qualities. Numerous studies, including thousands of double blind experiments, have shown that every attribute we look at is reliable.
Deciphering the graphic symbols via which we convey our inner natures, bodily, mental, and emotional states, is neither mysterious nor magical. Handwriting analysis is an observation and interpretation technique based on classified knowledge that has been evolved into a science by some of the world’s brightest minds. It is now taught in psychology and psychiatry courses at a number of American colleges since it is a useful tool in the investigation and evaluation of personality. Since the end of the nineteenth century, graphology has been part of the authorized curriculum in psychology departments at universities in France, Germany, and Switzerland!
Handwriting analysis can reveal both unconscious and conscious personality features. These characteristics are related to your behavior, motivations, sexuality, ambitions, and other personality differences. It can also disclose how lofty your ambitions are; the worries you’ve suffered and cultivated since childhood; emotions; and many other aspects of your life that are expressed in your handwriting.
Some people mistrust the accuracy of Handwriting Analysis since their writing “changes all the time.” In reality, only a few of the hundreds of features change. What does alter from time to time are emotional responses, often known as “Moods.” The emotional qualities exhibited in handwriting reveal the person’s emotional response at the moment the writing sample was written. These can change depending on the person’s mood. Regardless of mood or mental state, most personality traits will emerge. Handwriting reveals hundreds of individually identifiable personality traits in addition to “depth of feeling” and “emotional responses.” These include characteristics such as self-esteem, self-confidence, objectives, worries, defenses, sensitivity (and in what areas), initiative, enthusiasm, sexual demands, and so on.
“Grapho-Therapy” literally means “change your handwriting, change your life!” It is the science of changing your handwriting to improve your personality. Grapho-Therapy, when used professionally, may repair your worst flaws and build your character simply by changing the way you write!
But, you may wonder, how can changing one’s handwriting change one’s personality? To grasp the entire intricate process, you must first understand what happens when you write. Writing is a set of movements involving rhythm, pace, pressure, direction, and so on. Handwriting catches and holds on paper the smallest motor impulse of the writer, together with the many contributing elements. We write not only with our hands, but also with our brains, muscles, and nerves, which respond to conscious, subconscious, and emotional cues. Many people refer to handwriting as “brain-writing.”
Thus, how we move (and write) must represent our bodily, mental, and emotional moods. Handwriting explains why, despite being trained as youngsters to form letters in a specific pattern, each of us develops our own distinctively identifiable handwriting. It also explains the astounding variety of handwriting. No two people’s scripts are the same. An American statistician calculated that the likelihood of two writings being similar is one in 68 trillion.
Children respond well to graphotherapy because their handwriting, like their personalities, is still developing. This makes now the ideal moment to start modifying negative traits and inclinations. However, it is never too late, and even adult patients with tough conditions will improve.
The idea behind Grapho-Therapy is that since handwriting originates from the subconscious, it offers the most direct path back to the subconscious—that enigmatic power that rules each of us but is also quite open to suggestion. By purposefully adjusting a stroke in our handwriting via repeated practice, we are actually making a strong suggestion to the subconscious that will change the associated character. If we keep going, the command is always followed, and the most amazing outcomes happen! Handwriting can influence the subconscious mind in the same way that the subconscious mind influences handwriting.
Our handwriting has the capacity to either promote bad behaviors or support their modification or even elimination. Because it combines the neurology of handwriting analysis with the psychology of the principles of neurology, graphotherapy is a powerful and effective technique to alter your life. The following instructions are meant to help the user work through the graphotherapy suggestions that have been given to him or her. The suggested improvements to handwriting are based on graphotherapy, a behavior science. Positive signals will be continuously sent to the subconscious mind to alter specific personality traits. A conscious effort to alter the specific attribute supports these subliminal cues. This is one of the most effective personality modification therapy programs available because of the two combined efforts for change, the self-analysis entailed by the questions, and the combination of these two.
The weighted average of self-love and confidence in all circumstances is known as self-image. A t-bar crossing close to the stem’s apex symbolizes aspirational aims, positive self-image, and assurance. The t-bar crossed at the bottom indicates a negative self-image. The t-bar towards the top middle part the stem reveals an average/practical self-image. Instead of raising the stem, raise the t-bar cross.
Fear of being rejected if you’re sensitive to criticism of yourself, being very perceptive to the words, deeds, and behaviors of others and easily offended by others’ sentiments is indicated by a loop in the lowercase letter d’s stem. Your sensitivity increases with the loop’s size. Small stems represent independence, whereas excessively long stems represent excessive vainness and pride. The best balance is achieved with a medium-height stem that has a little or no loop.
Self-Critical is the propensity to be harsh on oneself, punish oneself, and put oneself in painful situations. It doesn’t matter if you are right- or left-handed. Self sabotage is shown by a t-bar with a sharp tip on the end that travels from right to left (backwards). Cross a T-bar from the left side of the paper toward the right to alleviate this self-destructive behavior.
Open thinking, flexibility, and faith: (the “ely” exercise) Closed e’s are a sign of a closed mind or a picky listener. The I and g’s open loops symbolize an open mind to fresh concepts. The width of the y-loop represents the degree of trust in the region of relationships. The more the writer is trusting, emotional, and physically inclined, the larger the loop.
One who is resistant to change is said to be stubborn. The person in question might be challenging and despises admitting he is in error. The loop in the t represents openness to critique of concepts and ideologies. A t-stem with a brace-like form indicates stubbornness. The stem should be retraced rather than braced. A small loop, though, is better than a large brace.
Enthusiasm is a sense of enthusiasm and zest for life. The length of the t-bar provides information about this energy level. More vitality and excitement about life can be found the longer the t-bar. Live life to the fullest by making your t-bar as lengthy as possible.
Fear of rejection when feeling self-conscious is shown by the uphill-slanting characters m and n. People who are self-conscious wait for their fear of rejection to pass before moving on. On the m, n, and even double I, adjust the angle of the humps.
Positive feelings and an upbeat attitude are shown by the overall uphill inclination of the writing. Similar downward slanting of the baseline indicates despair or pessimism. Simply change your writing slope upward can instantly alter your attitude and outlook.
Lying indicates the propensity to distort the truth to your advantage. The two loops within the lowercase o expose lying loops. Only the left half of the loop indicates self-deception. To others, the right-hand loop denotes secrecy. Together and over one another denote deception and falsification of the truth. To be direct, brutal, and honest, cut out the loops inside the o. Leave just a tiny loop on the right side if you value honesty and privacy.
Introversion and shyness are emotional outlays. Small writing is a sign of concentration and focus. Handwriting that is angled backwards to the left or straight up and down is a sign of emotional withdrawal. The person is completely governed by reasoning and has complete control over his or her emotions if the text is both small and vertical. Change your writing’s size and slant to quickly alter your mood. Before studying or a test, it’s a good idea to write in small font sizes to help you focus.
Big writing is a sign of overall outgoingness and people-person conduct. It is also an indication of emotional outlay and emotional impulsivity. The lean to the right, on the other hand, shows how much feeling the author shares with other people. Writing that leans extremely sharply to the right is emotional expressive. These authors are driven by their emotions, and they require other people to accumulate and release energy. An outgoing, emotionally expressive person has writing that is both large and tilted to the right. Change the font and slant of your writing to quickly alter the atmosphere.
Temper is the propensity to lose emotional control under stress and when you’re upset. When coupled with impulsivity or aggression, it turns violent. It can be seen by a t-bar that is unbalanced and that is primarily on the stem’s right side. Create balance. Curve the t-bar slightly like an umbrella if you currently believe that temper is a serious issue.
Procrastination is the act of delaying tasks that can be completed today. A t-bar crossing primarily on the left side of the stem reveals this laziness. (Contrary to the anger tantrum.) Cross the t-bar balanced on the stem to complete tasks quickly. A long t-bar (enthusiasm) helps you enjoy things you might not otherwise find enjoyable.
Fear of Success is the propensity to be afraid of success. It’s yet another instance of self-sabotage. shows a propensity to give up on or abandon a job just before it is finished. demonstrated by a downturned Y-loop. Change this attribute right now if you have it. Always finish the y-loop by going up through the baseline.
