Each and every one of us has a different handwriting and it can tell a whole deal about our character. In fact, the way we write can demonstrate more than 5,000 different personality traits.
Despite the fact that we write less and less in this era of laptops, tablets, and cellphones, we still use the pen from time to time and it can be very interesting to know what lies behind our penmanship.
The study of handwriting
Known as graphology, the study of handwriting uses different quirks like the size and shape of your letters, the space between words and other characteristics like loops, slanting, to name a few. Right from childhood, your handwriting begins to form.
And aside from knowing our personality traits can make us learn about ourselves, graphology is used for several reasons.
- Employers use it to help them choose the most qualified candidates for their company
- Psychological evaluations
- Marital compatibility
- Medical problems
- Jury screening, etc.
This science is often called a pseudoscience because some think that graphology isn’t accurate at determining psychological as well as physical attributes.
