Is Handwriting Analysis Widely Accepted?
In France, Spain, Holland and many other countries, YES! Handwriting analysis has been the "standard" in approximately 80% of businesses for candidates being considered for employment for more than 50 years - except in the U.S.
In the U.S., businesses have used other tests that require the employment candidate to select answers they feel are most appropriate. The theory is that the answers have no "wrong" answers, but the candidate is "grouped" depending on how the candidate selects answers.
There is nothing stopping the candidate from selecting the answer they "think" the employer wants to hear. Therefore, the tests are ambiguous at best. Certainly not something truly qualifying the candidate.
At worst, those other tests can weigh heavily "against" the candidate because not everybody "interprets" the same. The tests used in the U.S. do not provide the information the employer is seeking. What the employer wants to know; Is this person the type to stay with one company, or move on after a while? Is this candidate someone who works very hard? Is this person honest? Is this person trustworthy?
If you are trying to fill a position with a responsible, hard-working, honest employee, which type of test would be best?
- Answer multiple-choice questions that provide "an idea" of the person?
- Or, have results from a qualified professional who has "determined" the characteristics of a candidate?
For the consumer, you may ask, why in the world would I want to have my handwriting analyzed? That's a good question.
The general public knows a LOT about themselves, but also have a number of questions they cannot answer about themselves. Handwriting analysis can provide the following (as a few examples):
- Sense of Thrift or Generosity
- Degree or Restraint of Expression of Emotions
- Balance or Imbalance of Energy Projected
- Width or Narrowness of Mind
- Position in Life; Opinion of Self
- Attitude Toward Abstract or Material
- Inborn Tendencies; Source of Motivation; Thought Process
- How the Writer Wishes to Appear to Others
- Attention to Detail
- Sexual Image and Congruity
- Thinking Over Process
- Deception or Honesty; Talkative or Closed Mouthed
- Learning Process
- Thinking Process
- Suicidal Ideation
- Physical Disorders
And the list goes one through more than 100 different personality traits. There's a good chance that you have found at least 5 (perhaps 10) of the traits about which you would like to know more.
Never request Graphology for anybody other than yourself! The amount of private information Graphology reveals is extensive and sensitive.
Handwriting analysis has been known by many names, but graphology is the more correct term for understanding character through handwriting. Only in the last 20 years has the U.S. business approach made steps towards graphology - albeit a slow approach.
The only reason graphology has not been the "standard" in the U.S. is due to people scoffing at the thought that a trained professional can determine character by studying the loops in letters "d" and "l" (L) or where the ending loop in the letters "g" and "j" appear in relationship to the "base-line". Even where the letter "t" is crossed and if the cross in the "t" looks like a dagger provides a great deal of information about the writer.
Graphology is quite literally science. It's not some random determinations. Quite literally, using graphology is the best scientific character analysis and can be used for your own personal information, or, for a business hiring process. Only the books that are written by untrained personnel (of which there are a "LOT") are inaccurate.
Graphology is science because it's your mind telling your hand how to form your letters, which means your hand is simply moving as your brain mandates. Therefore, the formation of your letters is directly scripted by your mind.
Another term that's been used for Graphology is "Brain Writing" - because literally your brain is writing whatever words you put on paper.
What Sort of Traits Are Revealed?
There are hundreds of character traits revealed in an "in-depth" analysis. An analysis by a professional can go as deep as to find if a person is using alcohol, has mental conditions, is gay, is suicidal, etc. An analysis can provide such detail into a person that everybody should have their handwriting analyzed to better understand themselves.
In fact, graphology can show you whether you are self-confident, and if not, "how" to increase your self-confidence through your own writing! There are many traits that you can change by simply changing the way you form your letters.
