Society Conference Reports for 2015

Winter Conference

Saturday, March 14, 2015

Graziella Pettinati
The Wartegg Test: A Good Complement to Handwriting Analysis

This will be a workshop that will demonstrate and explain the Wartegg Test and how it can be an excellent tool for assessing personality in combination with handwriting analysis. Participants will be invited to take the Wartegg, and a Wartegg form is attached for the conference. Graziella will describe personality interpretations elicited by each of the eight boxes of the test and their relationship with one another. She will also present cases to further show how the Wartegg can be used with handwriting to come to a more complete assessment of personality than with either graphic tool on its own.

Graziella is a leading Canadian graphologist and handwriting identification expert who is principal of the Scripto Center for Handwriting Study and a member of the National Association of Document Examiners. She is a past Executive Co-Director of The International Graphological Colloquium and a former graphology instructor at Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy.

Spring Conference

Marcel Elfers
Behavioral Pathways through Written Communication

Marcel will explain Behavioral Pathways, how we become the way we are from childhood to maturity. We constantly reveal our motivation in what we say and in our behaviors, including handwriting. He will link the Enneagram personality types, statement analysis, and handwriting analysis to come to a comprehensive personality profile. Our perspective and development of behavioral and coping styles have consistent, distinct and recognizable patterns. Marcel calls this progression "behavioral pathways... people write the way they behave, and say exactly what they mean."

Marcel began studying handwriting analysis when he was 18, and after a hiatus, renewed his studies in his mid 30s, eventually adding statement analysis and the Enneagram to his arsenal. His book, What makes us tick? We are the Same, Itís the Details that Differ is an overview of behavioral style, motivation and predictability and will be available this spring.

Kim Iannetta, author of Danger Between the Lines, describes Marcel Elfersí unique investigative skills: "He combines non-verbal behavioral cues, linguistic contextual analysis, and handwriting analysis to arrive at accurate character profiles... He is observant, objective and systematic... builds a foundation for compelling conclusions... a consummate professional... He illuminates with a riveting insight into the hidden motivations of suspects or jurors."

Roger Rubin
Understanding Compatibility Using Handwriting Analysis

Roger Rubin is past president of the National Society for Graphology. For over twenty-five years he has been a court qualified handwriting expert and handwriting analyst working with employers psychologists, and a wide variety of clients. Roger began studying graphology with Felix Klein in 1971 and had a handwriting identification apprenticeship under him. Roger discussed the compatibility of a number of couples, comparing their needs and expectations as seen in their handwritings. Themes that ran through the presentation were that expectations have to be realistic and that relationships require adjustment. The desire for intimacy, merging with the other, may contrast with a need to maintain oneís own identity. Other insights discussed were male identity and the loss of recognition in the eyes of other men and womenís identity that can be threatened by separation. What is the relative degree of emotional responsiveness? As an example, he may need to be alone, while she may need connectedness.

Among the issues of compatibility are the following: maturity, willingness to give up oneís own needs when called upon, realistic views and acceptance of the other, commitment and common goals, shared problem solving, having good will in the relationship, shared values, trust, nurturing and anticipating needs, communication, intimacy and respect. Handwriting can give an understanding of these and other dynamics in a relationship. "In a true marriage each partner is a custodian of the otherís solitude."
