What does Handwriting Analysis DO?

So it’s all very interesting to say I am a Handwriting Analyst, but what does Handwriting Analysis DO?

how_can_this_be_a_jobThere are two main ways of using handwriting analysis.

  1. To identify personality traits (Personality) and put together a complete picture of the person
  2. To identify if two or more writing samples were written by the same person (Forgery Analysis)

1. Identifying Personality Traits

It can be used as a personal development tool, as you identify your strengths and weaknesses and can work to change whatever you wish to change.

It can be used to identify how two, or more, people will get along together. Common ways of using it in this way are compatibility reports for couples, or for employment. Employers also use it as a team building tool for their staff.

Genealogists use it to better get to know their ancestors.

Or it can be used just for general interest.

Once the traits have been identified, the intuitive part of the process takes over as it all comes together in a complete personality picture.

2. Identifying if two or more writing sample were written by the same person

This is usually used when one or more documents are suspected to be forgeries. It is possible by examining the handwriting to tell if even an accomplished forger has copied someone’s signature or handwriting. Lawyers, the courts and police use this frequently as well as the general public.

Handwriting analysis can also be used for fun!  Presentations with instant readings of the writing of the participants are popular, as well as more formal presentations to larger audiences on how to discover secrets about people just by examining their handwriting.

I also write How-To Books – have a look at the various topics here.
