Graphology How to Read Personality Through Pen Scratches

Every stroke made by a person reflects the personality of that person. This technique is called Graphology. And of course it takes learning to understand. How to read it? Maybe some of your friends want to know people’s personalities from their writing style..

Graphology is the study of a person’s character by analyzing his handwriting, the first book on graphology was written by Camillo Baldi, an Italian doctor in 1622. In 1872, Jean Michon published his book which became the main book of graphology at that time. Not long after, universities in Europe began to give Ph.D. or Master in this field.

There are two methods to assess character and personality through this science, namely German technique and French technique. The German method of witnessing the entirety of a person’s writing. While the French technique tends to check per character and then combined. A beginner usually learns French technique first. According to research, the accuracy of graphological evaluation reaches 80-90%. Some traits that can be seen through the writing of a person’s pen:

1. The direction of the slope of the letters

To the right = expressive, emotional
Upright = restraint, moderate emotions
To the left = close yourself
In all directions in 1 sentence = inconsistent
In all directions in 1 word = there is a problem with his personality

2. The general form of the characters

Round or circular = natural, easygoing
Sharp angle = fierce, to the point, strong energy
Square = concrete, practice based on experience
Irregular doodle = artistic, has no standards

3. Concatenated letters or not

Continuing everything = social, likes to talk and meet people
Some continue, some loose = shy, idealistic who is a bit difficult to build relationships (especially special relationships).
Let go of everything = think before you act, smart, thorough

4. Spacing between words

Strictly spaced = likes to say (perhaps someone who is always busy?)
Meeting/As if not distant = impatient, confident and quick to act

5. Vertical distance between lines of writing

Very distant = isolated, closed off, maybe even anti-social
Spaced enough so that the characters on the top line don’t intersect with the lines below = wasteful, talkative
Close enough so that the lower end of the letters ‘y’ , ‘g’ , touches the top end of the alphabet ‘h’ , ‘t’ = good organizer

6. Interpretation of the letter ‘t’

Place the bar (-) on the hook ‘t’
– Tend to the left = personally alert, not easy to believe
– Right in the middle = direct which is less original but very responsible
– Tend to the right = exclusively reliable, thorough, able to lead
The length of the ‘t’ hook offers potential ability to hit the target.
High-low bar (-) on the hook ‘t’
– Low = target setting is lower than the ability to help (less self-confidence or lazy)
– High = high target setting but also balanced by ability
– Above the hook = target setting is higher than ability

7. Direction of pen stroke on paper

Up/uphill = energetic, optimistic, assertive
Stay/straight = perfectionist, hard to get along with
Down = someone who is stressed or tired, possibly closing himself

8. Pressure when writing

The more influential the pressure, the greater the emotional intensity of the writer.

9. Character size

The smaller the characters written, the greater the level of concentration of the author, and vice versa.
