What is Graphology?

It is the study of handwriting and the inferring of character or aptitude from it. Whether we believe in analyzing personality through handwriting or not, it certainly is a fascinating and accurate way of knowing people around you. Really it’s fun to discover what your handwriting says about you, but it’s also important to realize that graphology is a serious business with many varied applications. Gaining greater self-knowledge is one important use. Also it’s nice to know self with our strengths and faults.

Couples can know more about each other’s needs and motivations through graphology. It is easier to understand our children’s inner thoughts through their handwriting.

Teachers can guide students with behavioral issues. Career guidance, hiring and recruitment are some of the most popular uses of graphology.

How is it possible to read someone through his/her handwriting?

Behind every handwriting is a human being who has recorded most of his past experiences in the unconscious mind. And when you pick up a pen and begin to write, it is as if everything that has ever happened to you comes together and travels down the nerves from your brain, through your arm, into your hand and out onto the paper.

Your handwriting is like a mirror image of who you really are inside. It reflects your strengths and potentials, fears and dreams, thinking style, how you connect socially. It reveals the level of need at which the writer is operating.

Knowing your weak areas helps you to know where you need to work. A vast body of formal research in the field of graphology supports its validity and reliability. Learning to analyze the written line in all its many expressions is the key that allows a graphologist to read a personality. The forms created in ink and the spaces around them reveal the writer’s potential, social style, use of energy, sense of purpose, etc.


 What is Graphotherapy ?

Handwriting emanates from the subconscious level through the muscles and nerves of the body. By consciously making changes in the handwriting, a message is conveyed to the subconscious and the signal, when repeated in a clear harmonious fashion, causes a corresponding desirable change in the personality to take place. Thus, many characteristics of a personality can be strengthened or modified through Graphotherapy.

Unconscious old patterns that create conflicts in a person can slow him/her down. These act as blocks in what one wants. By practicing self-supportive patterns through handwriting, one can change self-defeating unconscious patterns. Students as well as adults through regular practice, can retrain their brains and thus positive changes follow in their personality.
