FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What aspects of the personality can be known through graphology?
The aspects related to your personal life such as: strengths, weaknesses, if you are creative, what type of creativity do you have, how you behave with your family and in your close relationships, what are your innermost fears and your defense mechanisms, if you are selfish, if you control your expenses, if you reflect or act irrationally, if you are faithful to the truth or exaggerated and fanciful, if you have a stable or mutating personality, how you react to unforeseen events, your capacity for change and learning, your sociability, if you are a conformist, if you are an opponent, if you are patient…and everything inherent to your behavior, to the tasks you perform, what values you prioritize in others, your abilities and weaknesses, ways of reacting, etc.
Graphology can help in understanding and removing the mental blocks to achieve greater personal and professional success and self-growth.
How is graphology able to guess all this?
Graphology does not guess anything. It also has nothing to do with entertainment, tarot, or esoterism. Writing is a spontaneous impulse.
The brain gives the order and the hand performs it, leaving printed impressions on paper that indicate details of the writer’s essence, as it happens with so many other movements or gestures (gesticulations, way of walking, body and facial expressions, etc.) that also talk about us.
What happens if a person imitates the handwriting of another or disguises his, for example, to send an anonymous letter?
It is impossible to simulate a handwriting that is not your own without there being signs of effort that the graphologist can detect. Just as there are no two identical fingerprints, there are no two exactly identical graphics and this is because there are no two personalities that differ in absolutely nothing.
What is needed to do a handwriting study?
What is the difference between a calligrapher and a graphologist?
A calligrapher, among many other things, verifies by the technical means of the profession, the authenticity or falsity of signatures and texts of all kinds of documents, determines the differences in inks or graphic elements, and verifies photocopies, establishing correspondence with unadulterated originals.
On the other hand, a graphologist, among many other things, investigates in detail the human personality, determining the characteristics and types of temperament of the human being. He knows through handwriting the character and personality of an individual, their state of physical or mental health, moods, feelings, and tendencies.
The handwriting technique can be applied to any past time of a person's life, of which there is written handwriting.
What does graphology do?
Graphology analyzes a person’s handwriting to reveal the personality of the author.
Do graphics change when one writes under difficult circumstances?
When atypical conditions occur (being sick or in bed, in a moving vehicle, under extreme temperature, etc.), simpler forms of letters are instinctively traced. In the same way, the subject forced to write under pressure (threatened, for example), will do so with characteristics that will show the same.
What if the person has to change hands?
When the graphic gesture is under the direct influence of the brain, if the person has to change the member or organ with which they write, at the time of doing it, once they have acquired the motor skill through practice, the graphic would have the same characteristics as the primitive.
What does the graphologist consider when making the analysis?
In a handwriting study, countless aspects are considered: how the writing is placed on paper; the direction of the lines; the separation between words, letters, and lines; the inclination; the speed; the pressure; the shape of letters and of each movement; the signature; and many other aspects. Everything is analyzed together and not separately.
The content of what is told and the spelling are NOT considered for the analysis.
Can a person’s handwriting reveal their aptitude for a job based on their personality?
Yes. Some characteristics which graphologists interpret on a personel selection are: honesty, creativity, self-improvement, teamwork, multitasking, hability to solve problems, self thinking, between others.
