“What is Handwriting? You might think handwriting is the drawing of symbolic lines with a stylus of some sort. Some call it 'Language by Hand'. It is a physical way of expressing thoughts and ideas and a means of communicating with others. Nevertheless, I say, handwriting is image or projection of our subconscious mind; hence, it reveals personality and character of person.
We all know that, every individual has their own unique style of handwriting – cursive, print, mix, bold, simple, curly etc. Indeed, it is impossible that, two people on the planet have the exact same handwriting, just as a fingerprint or your own DNA. While a fingerprint would identify the key traits of your physical DNA, your handwriting identifies your mental DNA. It is scientifically proven that handwriting is akin to bio-electric impulses, both relevant and interpretable. To simplify it, as you need a mirror to see yourself from outside, your handwriting gives a clear picture of what you are from inside. In essence, handwriting is a mirror of our soul.
Handwriting Analysis (Graphology) is a modern form of psychology that identifies personality traits and human character through handwriting. The shapes and mechanisms of the lines that form letter is a clear and relatively current indicator of the brain’s modes and capabilities. Our subconscious mind controls strokes, slants, loops, spacing, margins, pressure exerted, and many other aspects during writing. Graphologists note such elements as the size of individual letters and the degree and regularity of slanting, ornamentation, angularity, and curvature. Other basic considerations are the general appearance and impression of the writing, the pressure of upward and downward strokes, and the smoothness of the writing. Each of these handwriting elements map various personality traits, thus reflecting our personality through our handwriting.
Handwriting analysis is used for self assessment and personality enhancement on the basis of more then 120 traits and/or strokes like creativity, intelligence, enthusiasm, willpower, persistence, administrative ability, goals, imagination, attitude, communication skill, physical drive, sexual drive, defense mechanism, desires, success and much more. The applications of graphology are enormous, for instance childhood development, career guidance for child and adults, self-development, partner compatibility, hiring activity for HR department, management for any organization and ease of medical treatment in medical science.
