What is 'handwriting'?? In the most simple way, we can define 'handwriting' as the person's specific style of writing with pen or pencil. Handwriting enable us to express ourselves in words. Whether good or bad, a person's handwriting is unique and gives a specific identity to him. But it is believed handwriting can show much more than your creativity of using a pen. It can reflect some part of you. It can act as a personality analyzer! The study and analysis of handwriting is known as "Graphology".

Graphology is related to the human psychology and is categorized under pseudo-scientific study i.e the study which is presented as scientific but doesn't hold any valid scientific evidence.

A graphologist is a handwriting analyzer who has the ability to judge a person by his handwriting. There are different aspects of handwriting, for example, how much pressure one applies while writing, what is the size of the letters, slanting of letters, etc; which are used by a graphologist to examine the handwriting. As per graphology, each of these aspects represents the qualities of the person.

      @RTalloni.. I agree. It's just a pseudoscience, and not something accurate. I shared it here just for fun. :)

      Interesting think about these ideas and then to compare mine and my husbands handwriting according to them. Pretty close estimation in some ways, but it could be dangerous to make too much of an assumption the correctness of a handwriting analysis.

      Graphology is an interesting subject. Once just as a lark I had my handwriting analyzed and my mother and husband thought that what was said about it described me perfectly at the time. I know that it has changed over the years. Much easier to type than write these days. :)
