Graphology: speculation or exact science?

La graphology exerts a fascination
particular on the majority of people. The fact of being able to draw
conclusions about personality starting from writing is a bit like
to be able to read in the crystal ball. This helped make the
graphology books are among the best sellers among unskilled people
as everyone wishes to know the mysteries behind it
handwriting. What is certain is that there are currently thousands of graphology books, from those of
general character to the more specific ones, in which it is described
in detail the meaning of each stroke that makes up a letter
handwritten. The existence of these very detailed books may give the idea that
graphology is a fairly exact science in which at each stroke
handwritten corresponds to a unique explanation from the point of view
psychological. But it is certain that this is not the case (I am sorry to give this news to whom
maybe he has already bought one of these books). In broad terms, graphology is a method (without questioning whether it is really
method, science or technique) that allows you to know the characteristics
personality through the analysis of handwriting. Currently the
graphology is applied in psychology as an additional technique to obtain
more information relating to the patient, in the area of ​​human resources for
establish a candidate's suitability for a particular job, in
medicine, to evaluate the level of development of some pathologies eminently
neurological and criminology as further evidence, given that writing
like fingerprints, it is unique and unrepeatable.

But how effective is graphology?

 In general, the effectiveness of graphology largely depends on
objectives pursued by the professional who uses it. For example, in the
criminology can be very effective since details exist
unmistakable in writing that can determine the authority of a given
document, paper or signature. In this way it was possible to solve many cases
complex, especially related to alleged suicides or falsifications; however, if the practitioner uses graphology data as a certain science and
indisputable that, for example, a rounded letter corresponds to
passive and quiet people while a legible signature indicates a person
anxious to be recognized, then its effectiveness will be reduced. The reality is that graphology is still a method to be explored. There
graphology is not based solely on the form of the letters but also on the
pressure exerted by writing, the size of the letters, the arrangement
of spaces, speed of writing, cohesion of writing, margins, i
punctuation marks… finally, the list of items to consider is really

How do you read between the letters?

 Essentially a good graphologist must not only focus on the cold analysis of
arrangement of letters on the sheet of paper, but must also consider two
essential factors before drawing conclusions: - The person: basically analyzing gender, age and level
socio-cultural since these factors affect the person's writing. - The situation: school factors are considered (for example, the tracing of
people who went to school 50 years ago are not the same as young people
contemporary, because some "institutional features" have changed) or factors
transients, such as the rush or tension of having to write in a moment
particular.Finally, the graphologist combines all these factors and establishes a profile that can
be more or less adequate but which must always be confirmed with evidence
more. In this way, graphology can represent a method for
validate what you already know or a guide to search the intricacies of
human mind.
