About Graphology

What is Graphology?

Graphology is the study and interpretation of the symbols in handwriting to assess the personality and character of the writer. Graphology is the generic term.  The prefix is from the Greek word graphe, which means “writing.” The suffix, -ology, comes from both Greek and Latin and means “science” or “branch of knowledge.”

The basis for handwriting analysis is that we project our personality into our writing in much the same way as we show our feelings through expression, gesture or body movement.  How the writer forms and arranges strokes on the page and with what speed and pressure creates a unique pattern that reveals the nature of the writer. The long and honorable history of graphology has led to diverse applications of this detailed social science.
