6:25 am - Intro

Greetings Everyone! I only just found this community. I had an interest in handwriting analysis and studied it on my own using books. But a number of years ago I took a class in graphology when it was offered in my area. I really enjoyed the class and continued with it for quite a while after. Mostly I analyzed samples from friends but also was asked to do it at parties quite often which was a lot of fun. Doing it at parties gave me a lot of good experience because oftentimes I didn't know most of the people at the parties outside of the host/hostess. It would just come about unexpectedly when people asked me what I did or what I was into. And then people would say, "Can you read mine?" and paper and pens would like come out of nowhere :) Those on the spot readings really helped me improve. I'd tell them a few key traits and many times they wanted a longer analysis done afterwards. I didn't do it for money.. just did it to improve and learn.

I'm getting back into it again and was happy to find this community. I think graphology is one of those things that has many layers. You can go deeper and deeper into it and come up with a much richer fuller analysis.

Well anyways, wanted to say hello and I'm happy to have found this community. Looking forward to reading the posts here and making new friends.

6:06 pm - Graphology - experiences

Hi everyone. I thought I'd drum up some activity here .... so here goes ..

I'd reckon most of the people here have some knowledge of graphology. I request you all to post your experiences of putting graphology to use ... how easy and effective you have found it, and how sceptical you are of its usefulness. Besides, it will also serve as a sort of "roll call". Thanks!

Several months ago I had my handwriting analyzed by an amateur. He said "Hm..." and "Interesting..." a whole lot, but actually told me very little. I asked him if he was holding things back because he didn't want to say some things in front of the group, and he laughed and said, "What do you think?" So I've been itching to get my handwriting looked at again so I can find out what he found so interesting.

2:53 pm - introduction post and book rec request

Just joined the community so time for an introduction post. :)

I guess I've always sort of known that handwriting analysis/graphology existed, but I sort of stumbled across it again recently and decided to learn a bit more about it. So I picked up the book Handwriting Analysis: Putting It to Work for You by Andrea McNichol and have been reading through it. While I'm finding it interesting, I'm also a pretty skeptical person, and haven't really been able to "buy into" graphology yet. I would like to read more about it before giving up on it, though. Any books in particular that people suggest? (I noticed some of the past posts mentioned books by Dr. Karohs, which I'll look into.) Any opinions on the book I'm currently reading?

current mood: thoughtful

Hi everyone... hopefully this place hasn't been too dead. Oh, wait, it is because I mod it.

Oh well, hopefully someone is still reading

As I'm still in high school, I need to do term papers. Mine is on Charles Manson, and part of my research is to get anylization of his handwriting... I figured I"m sort of an ameteur so I could get y'all's opinion (I'll give you the credit, of course). So, it's behind the cut. Have fun... and MUCH APPRECIATED. (yeah, I sort of had to get that point accross).

roily_rogue Hello, my name is Anna. I'm new here.

I discovered graphology very recently and I'm hooked. I'm not too interested about having my own handwriting analyzed right now (although I may at some point). Instead, I'm currently interested in another person's signature. I have read up some on the subject and so I have a faint idea of what it might say about him, or at least, his perception of his public image, but it would be interesting to have it either confirmed or disproven as well as finding out if there is anything more in there that I hadn't noticed.

Anything, anyone?

hello, I am new. I'm 19 years olf and I've been interested in the analysis of handwriting for quite some time and I own a few books on the subject! This is exciting that I've found a community devoted to the analysis of handwriting.
I've posted a sample of my writing for possible analysis below the cut. . .

Ok. A dude with a right trend and extended upper zones (this might be bias, I knew him... he was most defintly self absorbed). But his 'fs' were hooked to the left so they looked like sevens.

On another hand, there was this litle boy in my neigborhood and I noticed he was writing on unlined paper, and his baseline kept decending. Does this mean he has a predisposition for depression? Or do I just suck too much at analyzation.

1:24 pm - Hello-newbie


Hi everyone.

I joined this comm a couple of days ago and have just got a chance to post my introductory post.

I was interested in graphology about five years ago and had read a bit in books and magazines and I used to analyse peoples signatures like my friends or people at work and got a positive response (most of the time).  Recently I did a friend at works signature just for fun and she said I was pretty good and I thought maybe I should get back into it.  So if anyone wants to post up their signature or handwriting then I'll have  a go.

Also I'm interested in learning to give more detailed and of course accurate readings.  Can anyone recommend a course or a book they found to be particularly helpful.  Bear in mind I'm from the UK.  There doesn't seem to be much on the net that I've seen so far.

I haven't got a scanner at home but hopefully my boyfriend will be able to scan in a sample of my handwriting at work for me.

Am looking forward to getting to know you all!

This isn't exactly a natural writing sample, but then again I don't know enough to fake it! =)

And of course I started to spell graphology wrong, but for the sake of honesty I didn't start over..

Do your worst!Collapse )

Mod entry! Once again!

Because I havent updated in a while.

One note:
You ARE allowed to scan in writing AS LONG AS YOU PUT IT UNDER A CUT. I've probably already said this, but oh well. If it is not in a cut, I will reject the entry. Dun dun dun.

And I also have a generalazation for y'all to think about:

Do people with no lower zones (ie, their g's and such raise above the baseline instead of going down) have nothing to hide?

--Your (young) Mod

[Edit: Yep, I did post this already. So just ignore the top part if you want, or you can interpret the redundance as reinforcement. Thanks....]

10:52 am - introductory post

Hello. My name is Anna. I am 35. I have a BA in Anthropology but am a college instructor for computer and business courses. Since I was reading forensic science texts as a hobby anyway, this past autumn I decided to go back to school after 13 years. I have only been taking a few undergraduate courses [Intro. to Criminology, Human Behaviour in Criminal Justice, Crime Scene Investigation] since I am paying out of pocket but am pleased that for the first time in my life I have a 4.0 GPA. Eventually I will have to find a graduate program but am fine with taking the process slowly right now.

Yay, people are making posts and stuff!! Horrah for you guys.

I have an announcement--
you are now free to scan in writing samples, AS LONG IS IT IS UNDER AN LJ-CUT. And, obviouslly, you have to say what it is.

It would also be cool, I think, to somehow get a sample of some famous person's autograph or handwriting or something you see in a magazine to scan and analyze.

It doesn't always have to be about your own personality, because your handwriting can turn more bias becuase of it-- be CREATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

current mood: a little out of it

8:05 pm - Hi

I'm a Social Work student, ready to graduate in May, but I just signed up for a 2-year home-study course in graphology; I've been interested for some time now.
I'm just waiting for my materials to arrive! :)

gollygosh Hello,

I have a mystery Valentine's card that is puzzling me. Would it be OK to post it here for you to look at ? It doesn't have much writing but I would be interested in what everyone had to say.

I don't know anything about graphology (except that it exists) but this is more out of curiosity than vanity. I did not expect any Valentine's card, the postmark is illegible/ non-existent and the hand-writing is all I have to go on.

All the best,

7:57 am - New to the list

My name is Kelly Wilkins, and have been a Certified Handwriting Analyst since 97 and a "Certified Master Handwriting Analyst" since 99. I work in the field. I am regarded as an expert and one of the best in my area.

I am always looking for work and looking for people who want to learn. Feel free to ask me questions and what not. Since no one seems to be the "resident expert" and answering the questions here in the community, I will do my best to help out.

Anyway, I hope to talk to you all soon!

Kelly Wilkins

Lately, I've been writing my lowercase 'g's without much of a middle zone, so it looks more like a j to some people.

What the hell?
