Our handwriting is just as unique as our finger prints. Handwritten letters retrieved from crime scenes can be sent to a graphologist, who can build a profile of the criminal and distinguish between a real or a hoax letter.
Graphology is a study that aims at identifying human traits by analysis of one’s writing. The qualities of a person, such as likes, dislike and fears, can be gauged by the strokes and patterns revealed by their writing.
The physical act of writing with a pen and paper engages our brain in more ways than we may realize. From improvement of memory, as you jot down notes, to journaling your way to better health but most of us stop there; we don’t delve further.
If studied with much precision – slants, angles, spacing and instrument pressure can unleash a whole another truth under magnification. The graphologist overlooks what’s written, while solely tunneling vision towards how it is handwritten and attaches it to psychological interpretations. We may be deceived by looks and talk sometimes but it’s not easy for the handwriting to lie. Even in cases where someone might try to switch up their handwriting and attempt to write in a different way, to a true graphologist, it’s visible.
Absolutely! It’s as simple as referring to your diaries from the past and you will notice the meticulous tiny letters transition to bigger, sloppier ones. It could be as simple as us letting the letters go or something more significant like a developing personality.
