Frequently Asked Questions about Handwriting Analysis



What does handwriting reveal?

Handwriting reveals the true personality, including emotional outlay, fears, honesty, defenses, and over 100 other individual personality traits.

What can you NOT tell from a handwriting sample?

Handwriting cannot accurately reveal a person’s age, race, gender, religion, or nationality. While there are masculine, feminine, and cultural patterns among groups, these patterns are not statistically significant to be able to determine these things all the time.

How does handwriting reveal personality?

Handwriting is often referred to as BRAIN WRITING. Research scientists in the field of neuroscience have categorized neuromuscular movement tendencies as they are correlated with specific observable personality traits. Each personality trait is represented by a neurological brain pattern. Each neurological brain pattern produces a unique neuromuscular movement that is the same for every person who has that particular personality trait. When writing, these tiny movements occur unconsciously. Each written movement or stroke reveals a specific personality trait.Handwriting analysts identify these strokes as they appear in handwriting and describe the corresponding personality trait. Handwriting is like body language, but is more specific and is frozen for a more detailed analysis of our unconscious movements.

How accurate is handwriting analysis?

Most professionals claim to be about 85-90 percent accurate. Compared to other personality assessment tools and tests, handwriting analysis is sometimes more accurate and much more revealing. When answering psychological questions in person or on paper, a person may consciously or unconsciously answer according to how he thinks he should answer rather than giving an honest reply. The clinical research divided as to the validity of handwriting analysis. Again, it depends on whom you ask.

What about people who print?

It is a generality, but this is a question worth answering. People who print have put a barrier to keep the world from getting to know them. They do not easily express their innermost feeling. People who print take longer to experience intimacy and tend to have a strong external protective mental shell that is often seen as confidence.It is estimated that over half the men in the US prefer to print rather than write cursive. This is the same tendency that says, “I’d rather sit here in pain than express my feeling.”Some men learn at an early age to keep their insecure feeling hidden from the world. And, yes, they do often have to print because of their messy handwriting, but the answer still applies.

Why does my handwriting change all the time?

Certain strokes represent emotions and moods. As your feeling and moods change from minute to minute, those corresponding particular strokes will change. However, the basic character-defining traits will remain the same. And if you really have a total variation in handwriting styles, you are one moody person and should cut down on the sugary snacks.

What can be told from a person’s signature?

The signature represents what a person wants the world to see or what he wants to be, an image that may or may not be the same as his inner self. Because a signature contains only a few letters, it does not provide enough information for an analyst to make a complete and accurate evaluation.

Does handwriting analysis work in other languages?

It depends on the alphabet of the language. The letters that form the foundation for most Latin-based languages are well researched and widely taught. Therefore, all Latin-based languages such as English, Spanish, Italian, French, and German are fair game. Languages like Chinese, Japanese, or Arabic alphabets cannot be done by the training I have. There are other analysts who specialize in these languages and alphabets.
