GRAPHOLOGY: It is the study of handwriting and handwriting analysis.
A person’s handwriting and its placing on the page express the unique impulses of the individual: logically, the brain sends signals along the muscles to the writing implement they control. By examining a handwriting sample, an expert graphologist is able to identify relevant features
No single handwriting sample will exhibit all 300 different features of course – a typical analysis will involve far less.
Graphology is very old science. It was first developed by the Chinese 3,000 years ago. The Romans also used graphology for different purposes.

HANDWRITING PERSONALITY TRAITS:
A tight beginning loop that is small and almost square. It must make a completely closed circle. This person fears the loss of someone he loves. Can be very possessive.
Shown by a picture-perfect i-dot with no tail in any direction. Loyalty is a commitment to stand by those people or ideas that they consider worthy.
Shown by a combination of loops in the right and left side of lower case a’s and o’s. Huge inner loops that cross signify a person that lies pathologically. These people are not trustworthy.
Shown by hard right upstrokes that replace a lower loop. The aggressive person pushes forward into the future asserting himself physically. Often this person needs physically aggressive outlets such as competitive sports or even violence.
Shown when the lower loops of y’s , g’s, and sometimes j’s are retraced completely. The anti-social person does not trust anyone and rarely lets people get close enough to really know him. He fears getting hurt emotionally. This is a roadblock to intimacy.
Shown by the break-away p with a high beginning stroke. This person likes to argue. The trait will be increased if the writer is also analytical, irritated, sarcastic, stubborn, and/or impulsive.
High ending strokes that go up in the air much like a child raising his hand in class for attention. This person needs to be the center of attention and is always looking for ways to get noticed. This person needs lots of recognition.
A large lower case letter, especially k anywhere in the writing. This high buckle k is often referred to as the “go to hell K”. The defiant person resists other’s authority. Seen as resentment at being told what to do and as rebellion in young people.
Desire for Responsibility
Shown by a large round loop at the beginning of a word, usually in capital letters like W or M, but also found in the S. This person has a desire to be needed by a large number of people and will need to be in a leadership role.
Down slanted humps toward the right on m’s and n’s. This person has the ability to say things in a way that other people want to hear. He can also phrase touchy subjects in a nice, inoffensive way.
Down-slanted t-bar, to the right, with a sharp ending. The domineering person tends to fight for control. He takes charge, insisting people follow him. The sharp t-bar signifies sarcasm, whining, griping, and possible cruelness when he doesn’t get his way. An unpleasant trait.
An unusually long stroke that makes the cross bar of the t. This writer bubbles over with enthusiasm and excitement. Enthusiasm is a key ingredient to success in leadership because it motivates others toward action.
Strokes that double back over the letter and end toward the right. Usually located in the t and f. This person has the quality of not giving up when confronted with temporary setbacks. He will persist until he completes the task.
A t- bar that is crossed predominately on the left side of the stem. Procrastinators will put off until tomorrow what could have been done today. This trait is one factor of laziness.
Inflexible beginning strokes at the beginning of a word. The stroke must start at the baseline or below and remain rigidly straight. This person is harboring anger, resentment, or hate toward something or someone.
Shown by the increasing height of the humps on the m’s and n’s. When the second hump is higher than the first, this person has a fear of being ridiculed and tends to worry what others might think when around strangers.
Sensitive to Criticism
Shown by the looped stem in the lower case d or t. The bigger the loop, the more painful criticism is felt. If the loop is really inflated, this person will imagine criticism. The d-loop relates to personal self and the t-loop relates to sensitiveness to ideas or philosophies.
Revealed by t and d- stems shaped like a tepee or upside down “V”. The more this letter is braced, the more this person is braced to his own ideas. Stubborn people rarely admit they are wrong, and don’t want to be confused with the facts after they have made up.
Shown by a T-bar that is crossed predominantly on the right side of the stem. The more it occurs, the easier irritation will cause them to lose control of their emotions. If combined with a heavy rightward (DE,E+) slant, they will blow up quickly.
Shown by ending hooks on the right side of letters. This person tends to hold on to what is hers. If the hook is in the upper zone she will cling to her ideas and beliefs. If in the middle zone, she will be tenacious about material items.
