Introduction to Handwriting Analysis.

Filed under: Learning — Manish Bansal @ 7:18 am

They say it doesn’t matter what you say. What matters is how you say it. How was your body language? Were your eyes darting from place to place? Were you fidgeting? These visual cues carry more weightage ’cause they come from our unconscious mind. We have no contol over them. They are the ultimate giveaways. Eyes don’t lie as they say.

Our handwriting is one such visual cue. Our hand is just a medium to hold the pen. The actual writing is done by the mind. Or rather, by our subconscious mind. Notice how your pen just glides across the page, forming letters and words. Only thing you are aware of is what you are writing, not how you are writing it. You don’t notice how big your letters are, how much space is there between two words, how much pressure you are putting on the page, or how you are forming the individual letters. Which of three humps is bigger in your m? Are your Os open? Are your Ts crossed?

Handwriting analysis involves looking at all these visual cues and doing a personality assessment. It cannot tell what you had for breakfast and it cannot tell whether a brick would fall on your head. It can just tell what kind of a person you are. Short tempered? Egoistic? Friendly? Generous? Selfish? Satisfied with life? The answers may surprise you. Think you are frank and honest? Take a handwriting test.

The pen doesn’t lie as they say.



  1. Graphology, an interesting science in itself. We are getting attuned, don\’t you think. 🙂 I ,too, was reading an another book on graphology. I always observe people\’s handwriting for a clue or two about their personalities. However, due to use of more and more computer peripherals and other communication devices, people are getting less accustomed of writing and that\’s worrysome.

    It is said that hand writing is the graph of mind as cardiogram is of heart.

  2. You are right about using computers/keyboards nowadays. There are times when several weeks pass before I even touch a pen. I remember we used to practice on wooden boards with wooden pens, by dipping them in tiny ink pots. I don’t know if that improved the handwriting or not but we used to end up all smeared with ink 🙂
    There is still hope as long as kids are made to write with pens instead of on keyboards.

  3. I have also heard about Graphology but I have not read any specific book on the
    same. Something typical about me which I have noticed, during my school days if I
    liked the handwriting of my close friend, I used to copy the same. My
    handwriting used to change a lot. Does that mean that I adopt the behaviour and
    actions of my friend circle. I dont know, but many times I have thought on this.
    People say friend circle really affects the personality of the individual. I think
    I am one of those, my handwriting analysis also indicate the same.

  4. Our handwriting changes from day to day and from time to time but there are some traits which remain the same. If you copy your friend’s handwriting, your handwriting might change temporarily but it would still contain things which are unique to you. People do adopt the manners/qualities of others whom they admire. Same goes true for handwriting.
    BTW, who did your handwriting analysis?

  6. Wow. But that’s not recommended. We become heavily biased when looking at our own handwriting or looking at our own palm. You should always ask someone else to do it for you.
    I am planning to do a series of articles on handwriting analysis. Wondering if people would be interested in that?

  9. Hi Srinivas, I would like to do your handwriting analysis but some other time. I am quite busy in my office work nowadays and can’t spare any time for my hobbies. Sorry!

  10. I think the reliability in the way a person writes is not that accurate. Many factors influences our writing pattern and one of which is the existence of computer where people tend to handwrite less, so the normal penmanship is perhaps not the same depending on how he often uses a pen for writing.
