hello,

I saw one of the TV programs and they were talking about graphology. as a graphologist i think that your basic attitude to graphology (even if the psychologists union thinks that it's not effective) is wrong. a lot of researches made and checked it and the resaults were amazing - it's precise in 92%! the problem is that there are not professional graphologists that ruin the name of the profession.

i'll be more than happy to prove it.

sorry about my English, it's not my first language...

Yuval

Can't see how it works - the typeface in everyone's posts appear the same. Oh - handwriting.

BTW - Welcome.

thanks a lot for your reply and nice welcome...

how it works? although the hand writing looks similar , it's never the same. you can always find differences among the people that the handwriting reflects.

the reaserches that i have are translated to my language, but you can find some information here:
http://graphicinsight.co.za/research.htm

our handwriting is reflection of our way of thinkng and feeling. you can try and check - the presure on the page (feel the page behind) is different among the people. why? because part of us are relax, other are under presure and a lot are between.

you can see easily if you organized or not through you handwriting - write 15 sentences with ballpoint pen and check - do you keep the margins? are they straight? do you leave space on the margins? do you keep the paragraphs visible? if yes, you probably organized person.

you can check a lot of things with the graphology. great tool. it took 4 years to study it, and its includes a lot of psychology (it based on a lot of theories like Yung, Adler, Maslow and more).

i'll try to find more researches.

good night,

Yuval

I did a double take when I saw the name, my cousin once removed is called Yuval, but she's only 4, so I guess you're not her :)

I personally am of the opinion that graphology can be applied to many people to a certain extent, but I also think there is going to be a growing number of people who's style of writing is completely inconsistent. Whether it's because more people now have two or more languages they use on a regular basis, or the fact that so many use computers that they have little practice at handwriting, or other reason.

I love writing with a proper fountain pen and have always wanted to have my writing analysed, just out of curiosity.

I can save you the bother - any analysis will probably say something like this:

Quote:
You have a great need for other people to like and admire you. You have a tendency to be critical of yourself. You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage. While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them. Your sexual adjustment has presented problems for you. Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You pride yourself as an independent thinker and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. You have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be pretty unrealistic. Security is one of your major goals in life

Well - I'm left-handed and use a doctor's scrawl. But I do calligraphy with my right hand.

Analyse that!

Ooo - Neo's already done it. Good job... spot on!

It means playing pocket billiards in public is not welcome in some places.
