assess the personality and character of the writer. Graphology is
the generic term. The prefix is from the Greek word graphe, which

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
