Q: What Is Handwriting Analysis

A: It is the study of the graphics of printing and cursive writing to determine personality traits.  Frozen in time and space, handwriting enables analysis of expressive movement.  An analogous study would be the expressive dynamics of body language.


Q: What is ASPG's approach to teaching handwriting analysis?

A: ASPG classes take a gestalt perspective.  From the holistic evaluation, we then consider the specifics, or more detailed dynamics.  Individual graphics are interpreted as they relate to overall expression in the handwriting.  We do not equate one graphic with one meaning for all handwritings, but focus instead on what the graphics add to the interpretation of particular handwritings.  Our focus is to come to an understanding of the entire personality of the writer and, from there, the characterics of the individual.

We teach Heiss's Movement, Form and Space and the Anthony/Roman Graphological Psychogram each semester as the basis for obtaining a holistic perspective and pursuing objectivity in the evaluation process.  In addition, we consider other graphological and psychological methods and perspectives each semester to broaden our approach to and understanding of handwriting analysis and personality.
