Graphology and Its Uses

Updated on January 21, 2014


Every individual's handwriting is unique about them, just like the fingerprints. Fingerprints identify your physical body, whereas handwriting reveals one's whole personality.  Graphology is the study of one's handwriting, which indicates one's character and attributes. It is considered as an art and science and as a  branch of Psychological studies. When we write, our hand does the work of writing, but our mind does the work of dictating. As a result, our personality is reflected in our handwriting.

Who is a graphologist?

The one who has done the training in graphology is called a graphologist. It is amazing to know that a trained graphologist can detect one's early detection of cancer analyzing his/her handwriting. They study the downstrokes and upstrokes of his handwriting. It is interesting to know that one's signature is capable of exposing the writer's personality characteristics, behavioural patterns, and plus and minus points in one's career. A graphologist believes that one's signature reflects the mind. By seeing different signatures, have you ever thought that each one has a distinct identity and character, which clearly says in their signature? When our life style gets altered our signature automatically changes. Graphologists say that your handwriting is an instantaneous photograph of your mind.

First book in Graphology

The first book of handwriting analysis was published by Camillo Baldi, an Italian physician and University Professor in 1622. Later, Jean Hippolyte-Michon, a French priest, gave the name 'graphology' for his findings, and is considered the originator of scientific graphology collected handwriting samples from hundreds of people and compared them. Later, Michon called it a "fixed signs and rules" theory. Professor Wilhelm Preyer wrote in 1895 that handwriting should really be called as mindwriting.
