Handwriting Analysis: Putting It to Work for You Reviews

    This is a great book! I got it when I was transcribing letters written to my grandparents and their contemporaries. The letters were stored in the attic and were written by friends and relatives back in Iowa that I didn't know. Reading the letters and transcribing them got me interested in genealogy and eventually I wondered what the handwriting said about the people who wrote them. I tried out the things I learned from this book on some of the letters of relatives I did know and found them to be very accurate, so I began to look at letters of great aunts and uncles to understand them better. What an amazing adventure! My grandmother had a school friend who wrote to her for many years. She was always apologizing for her handwriting which was absolutely perfect. The letters were written with almost painful attention to detail. I looked in this book and found that the writing was of someone who had serious mental problems. Initially, I thought that the book must not be accurate. Eventually, I found a letter written about 15 years later by my great grandmother which told my grandmother that her friend was in a mental institution. Amazing! I followed her through the census and she always lived with her older sister and never married or had a job. Looking again at the writing I saw that her writing showed her to be rigid and compulsive and I could just imagine her as severely OCD and having a nervous breakdown.

    so far this is the only graphology book i have read, but i really liked it. the author covered a lot of different things; slant, spacing, loops, felons claws etc etc. she also made it really easy to learn cause she made it into kind of a game, or at least made it very airy and easy.

    Based in psychology, Graphology has many practical uses in today's society. This is not like tea or palm reading as most would have you believe. Your handwriting is actually an extension of your psychological profile, and is unique to you like a thumb print. This book is a very comprehensive look into graphology, teaching how to see a sample with new eyes as you learn what various handwriting styles mean in a scientific way and why. If you enjoy psychology and want to learn a little something new, this book will be of great assistance.

    Very fascinating read! This book describes the skill and art of graphology - the study of handwriting analysis. Our handwriting can actually reveal parts of our personality. As stated in the book, our handwriting is part of our brain. Imagine if we were to lose our hands and learn to master writing with our feet. If we become excellent at this skill our writing will still be the same as writing with our hands. Ever notice the spacing between words in someone's writing? Ever notice the big loops, the slants, the alignment of the paragraphs? This book is the book you're looking for that will reveal the meanings of those gestures.

    quite interesting. definitely fun. i may have to worry about some was especially interesting to pull out my journals that i wrote in during the depths of my depression - i did have many of the concerning traits that were spoken about, including the suicidal drop, and the pointed angles of anger and the smallness...very interesting indeed.

    This book is amazing, and so informative! I have since done research on handwriting analysis, and finding credible "experts" in the field can be very difficult. But Andrea McNichol is definitely credible: trained in Europe, at the Sorbonne, among other places, she now serves as an analyst and expert witness for the FBI and other legal groups and trial issues. She's a nationally recognized expert, and hearing what she has to teach is a real eye opener. She introduces the reader to a variety of different elements of handwriting, and explains what those elements can mean, in their various forms. Trust me--you will never look at anyone else's handwriting the same. Whether it is examining the handwriting of an applicant at your job, or a note from someone you're dating, you will learn enough to take a quick measure of a person based on his/ her writing. it's not an absolute science, but it's still incredibly fascinating, interesting, and helpful. Just be prepared to analyze yourself as well, whether you like the results or not.

    There is so much more to handwriting than meets the eye, and this book really does and excellent job of explaining the finer points of handwriting analysis. For anyone that has an interest in learning the the art of handwriting analysis, this book come with my highest recommendation. Simply put, this text is very easy to read and understand; this makes it the perfect introduction to this field of study. Examples are provided within the text including the handwriting of some famous faces such as Walt Disney himself and dozens of others. You would be amazed at what you could learn from handwriting. Happy Reading!

    Assuming this is accurate since it is coming from an educated author, it's very interesting. As I like to read strictly non-fiction this was perfect for me. The book is filled with information, and even I who am not a dedicated studier of graphology enjoyed it. This is the type of book to read in parts over a period of time or you may get overloaded with information. The book is descriptive but easy to understand. I would recommend it to people who are interesting in learning something new.

    Shout out to NCIS New Orleans for prompting me to look into this topic. "Graphology for the win."And big thanks to my water bottle for giving me a reason to own this former library book. If anyone would like to borrow it, it's a little ruffled, but the content is still good. Also be warned, I will be judging your handwriting from now on.

    This book was awesome! If you want to be able to interpret a person's handwriting, this is the book to read. If you want to become a secret detective of a person's characteristics just by seeing their handwriting, this is the book to study.McNichol is a great teacher of graphology and the interpretation of handwriting!

    This is a wonderful book on the subject of handwriting analysis. In it you will see how logical the science is. The many short tests in the book will convince you that you already know how to analyze a person's handwriting.

    Best graphology book I've ever read and I was totally obsessed at one point. Great book, set up in simple lessons, easy to understand, lots to remember. She even introduces the more complex concept of combining several individual traits and concluding neurosis.
