Frequently asked questions

The study of handwriting is a valuable tool for revealing people’s talents, abilities, emotions, motivations and reactions. Throughout the world, graphology has been utilized in criminal investigations, screening job applications, vocational guidance, and psychological counseling.
  • Feeling forlorn, used and confused?

Whether you write with your right or your left hand, foot, mouth– it makes no difference! Because handwriting is not handwriting. It’s brain writing. It’s the unconscious coming through on paper in the form of signs. It’s sort of written body language in universally understood symbols.

We’re all handwriting analysts. We do it instinctively. Some writing we like and some we can’t stand because we sense the person; we sense the essence of the personality. Instinctively, we get a feel for the writer.

But it takes a trained and experienced graphologist to tell you more.

How we write

According to graphology, the way we write is determined by three impulses, all of which stem from the brain

  1. motor
  2. formative
  3. spatial.

Though writing may change superficially according to mood or method (the writing you use for a formal letter probably seems very different from a scribbled shopping list), the fundamental characteristics are the same.

1.The motor impulse
When you need to write, a message is sent from the brain to the muscles of the hand. It is therefore easy to understand that the graphologist talks of the 'motor impulse' as the basis of all writing. All that is needed for it to operate is an able-bodied human being with normal reflexes, reasonably good eyesight and a memory for the shapes of the alphabet used as means of communication.

2.The formative impulse
With the 'formative impulse', we can actually begin to analyze writing because this second impulse is the result of the writer's individuality and makes writing differ from the school model. As a result, the letters are shaped in a fashion entirely of each person's own making and design.

3.The spatial impulse
People write on a variety of surfaces: paper, cards, blackboards—even walls —and it is significant to note how writing is organized according to the space available. This is known as the 'spatial impulse'. The formation of lines and margins play an important part in graphology.
