Why Should I Use Graphology?


Would you consider hiring the person who wrote the letter at left? Would you consider beginning a relationship with them? Would you trust them? How about letting this person clean your home when you're not around or even babysit for your kids? Would you do business with this person or consider lending them money? What is the probablity that they would lie, cheat, or steal from you?


If you've answered yes or no to any of these questions, but you can't really explain how you drew your own conclusions or how certain you can feel about their accuracy, you are already entering into the enormously complex study of graphology- i.e. the psychology of handwriting analysis.


Of course, if you had already known that this handwriting belonged to Jack the Ripper, you wouldn't have had the need to so much as even glance at the paper in order to establish that it was written by a highly disturbed personality capable of inflicting great damage on society.


But what if you knew absolutely nothing about this person, having never met them before and you wanted to form a detailed opinion of their psychological makeup?


If you were a prospective  lover curious to know the secrets of the mysterious writer you might have known how entering into a relationship with this person would mark the path of intense pain and suffering.


Had  you been properly advised, the many future problems, sources of incompatibility, unconscious division and conflict would all have been effortlessly avoided and understood on a more profound level. A heightened awareness of the status of your own personality considered both separately and within the status of your own relationship would, at the same time, have enabled you to begin to make productive changes towards a better life.


Now consider the thousands of American companies who are today unwittingly employing people without ever truly knowing what the candidate's  job performance will actually  be like once they get to the job. This is akin to someone deciding that they will marry a person only after the first blind date.


What about the employer who has already been  thoroughly duped by the con artist after the first spoken interview and who, quite unwittingly, was unable to see behind the brlliant smokescreen of the candidate's "right answers," charming looks, impeccable dress and bespoke manners?


If only you had first known to consult with a highly skilled graphologist  you could have with great certainty avoided all of the  headaches, time lost,  anger and frustration stemming from the immense financial loss, physical damage  and  even  violence in the workplace wrought by the unscrupulous writer. You might have hired a better and more reliable candidate more  ideally suited to the requirements of the job.


Even without using an interview as part of your job employment strategy  a graphological  profile would  have  enabled you to  obtain many answers  to questions that you could never have resolved in an interview setting. You would have accomplished all of this without ever having to so much as leave the comfort of your own chair.  Moreover, you would have an actual depth-psychological understanding of the person in a way that absolutely no other projective psychological test could ever possibly muster.


Although this may sound to you like a quaint vignette, I have known people who have suffered great personal risks, personal or financial, because they simply "trusted" the person or had a good feeling about them.


Why does Graphology Work?


Graphology works only when it is practiced by an expert who has the appropriate knoweldge and skill set to be able to  draw accurate psychological conclusions. Experience has brought me to encounter many people over the course of years who, after having their handwriting analyzed, were amazed that I was able to tell them as much as I did about either themselves or their loved ones.


I once encountered a lawyer who, after losing thousands of dollars to a bad investor, lamented the fact that he hadn't consulted me sooner, after I explained to him how dishonest the investor's handwriting appeared. I had no prior knowledge of who the writer was or what he did, but I was instantly able to detect that he was a sophisticated exploiter and a narcissist with sociopathic tendencies.


In yet another incident, I encountered a woman who paid a forensic psychiatrist an enormous sum of money to analyze her husband's personality. She told me that I informed her of many of the exact same things as the forensic psychiatrist, except I hadn't charged her thousands of dollars. She was so moved by the depth of my conclusions that by the end of the analysis she was practically in tears before the revelation of the many facets of his personality that she was only then beginning to come to conscious grips with. (Similar incidents happened to me many other times as well).


Many graphologists claim to be graphologists simply because they are able to form isolated judgements about this or that peculiar letter or loop in the writing. Their judgements are, however, all too often flawed and do great damage to the scientific reputation of the subject, insofar as they ignore the big picture or "Gestalt."


At, no attempt is made to simply describe the writer in terms of isolated traits or cheesy looking score charts made up in seconds with a computer. Rather, the goal is to portray the person as uniquely and thoroughly as possible.


Graphology is based on sound, long established principles which in no  manner depends simply on the graphologist's own subjective moods or personal biases. It is certainly no accident that among its practitioners are to be counted the father of modern psychiatry Emil Kraepelin, Alfred Binet (the founder of the modern IQ test) and Eugen Bleuler, who coined the term "dementia praecox."


Who Actually Uses Graphology?


Thousands of companies throughout the world use graphology, as do psychiatrists, psychologists, lawyers, counselors, headhunters, educators, and private individuals. It is, however, most popular in countries like France and Switzerland where it is also studied as part of a formal academic curriculum. In the US, however,  there are  few places where one can actually obtain a sophisticated understanding of the subject. This has much to do with the fact that still too little is known about the field, even by academics and not enough effort has been made to illuminate  the enormous psychological significance of handwriting.


How Extensively is Graphology Used?


A BBC News report stated: "The last independent study was in 1991, and it found that a massive 91% of public and private organizations in France were then making use of handwriting analysis.


A French official reported in the London Times that "About 80% of large companies in France use graphology as part of the recruitment process, generally for their executives..." This report was also echoed in the Wall Street Journal.


Alessandra Bianchi reported in Inc. magazine, that approximately 6000 US companies used graphology.


How Does one Learn Graphology?


One is either self-taught in the subject, takes a correspondence course of some type, is privately mentored, or a combination of the aforementioned possiblities.


Some graphologists claim their expertise in the field by belonging to various professional organizations or holding diplomas from select institutions in Europe such as the University of Urbino (Rome), the University of Barcelona (Spain) and the Sorbonne (Paris).


While many successful professional graphologists in Europe and in the US possess such diplomas, many do not, and there is currently no actual consensus among professional graphologists whether the acquisition of such diplomas actually make the highly skilled practitioner a better graphologist.


One thing is however certain and that is - one cannot judge the music of the violinist simply by the violin on which it is played nor the painter merely from his brush. One must first be able to experience the phenomena directly in order to know them. The same can be said of the handwriting, which like the artwork, comprises an autonomous "soul."
