What does your handwriting say about you?

Handwriting analysis is a method of identifying, evaluating, and understanding a person’s personality through the patterns revealed within his/her handwriting. Whether you mind your “p”s and “q”s, dot your “i”s and cross your “t”s, handwriting can say a lot about how you think and behave.

According to the science of graphology, the primary basis of handwriting analysis as a science is that every person in the world has a unique way of writing. And a new study by the National Pen Association claims that the way you write can indicate more than 5,000 of your personality traits and matters the most in determining authorship.

Individuals use personality testing to gain a better understanding of ones self, or for self-improvement. An employer might use handwriting analysis as a means of finding a qualified candidate for employment. Psychologists use testing for personality evaluation and therapy.

While there are definitely other more “traditional” ways of getting to know a person’s personality (like, say, talking to them), handwriting analysis adds insight into the psyche of an individual who is looking to make changes to his/her behavior.
