What does Handwriting Analysis DO?

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

There are two main ways of using handwriting analysis.

  1. To identify personality traits
  2. To identify if two or more writing samples were written by the same person

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.

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.

This is what I do. If you have any questions please use the contact form on the right of the screen, near the top and I will reply as soon as possible.

Top Ten Strengths of Workplace Re-Entry Women

So what are the top ten strengths of women going back into the workplace?

Women returning to the workforce often sell themselves short, partly because of society’s view that if you’re not in the paid workforce you are “doing nothing”.

The other part of this equation is because after a few years of dealing mainly with children and duties around the home, many women find own self esteem and self confidence is low as to what they have to offer in the world of work.

But as any savvy employer knows, a woman returning to the workplace brings with her extremely valuable skills and qualities. » Continue reading “Top Ten Strengths of Workplace Re-Entry Women”
