Handwriting is an expression of personality, and as unique as a fingerprint. Physical, intellectual, and emotional states combine to produce a writing style. Handwriting analysis, or graphology, was once sneeringly labeled a pseudoscience but is now gaining acceptance as a useful diagnostic tool in business, criminology, medicine, and psychology. McNichol (Univ. of California) has thorough knowledge and long experience as a consultant and expert witness, and teaches the only graphology course sponsored by an accredited U.S. university. Her common sense explanations are salted with wry humor and ironic observations on the handwriting of the famous as well as the infamous. No one, including the reader, is safe from her barbs. This is an excellent introduction to graphology, a great party game, and an incentive to type all correspondence!-- Evelyn L. Mott, Palm Beach Cty. Lib., West Palm Beach, Fla.

my purpose in this path is two-fold. first, i teach in a prison, and would prefer not to be blind-sided if there are personality or behavioral traits that i can alert myself to proactively. and i'm not just talking about negative traits, but traits such as: creativity, are there learning issues, is an individual social or withdrawn, is he feeling isolated or frightened, is he overly sensitive to criticism, is he highly intelligent, artistic, is his focus on the past or the present, ...? my inmate students (aged 19 to 75) like to doodle and draw on their papers almost without exception. if i can use their doodles, for example, to better understand them as individuals, it will be an amazing aid to help support their journies with learning. McNichol's book includes a section on doodles, as well as a lot of information about handwriting traits of convicted felons--she has a lot of experience in solving crimes. my second purpose is personal: to include handwriting analysis in an overall mental-, physical-, and emotional-health-improvement program. now age 56, i have been familiar with handwriting analysis since age 13. i always believed it was awesome but never seriously studied it. it seemed obvious that changing one's writing should effect changes in one's behavior and attitudes, and, to that end, i have made changes in my writing throughout my lifetime, most of them intuitive. now, however, i am looking to exploit its potential in a more explicit way.
i spoke with a friend of 29+ years about incorporating handwriting analysis into an overall therapy plan with her, and was amazed to learn that not only was she supportive of including it in our work together, but about 20 years ago, she actually attended handwriting analysis courses for the purpose of including information gleaned from them in her ongoing work with patients. the specifics she took away have been applied intuitively in her practice ever since then. further, she was already familiar with, and an admirer of, McNichol's work, which inspired me to contact Andrea McNichol to request an analysis of my handwriting through her consulting agency, Graphology Consultants International. she agreed to do it, and the results will be incorporated into my therapy sessions!
i am so excited to include handwriting analysis in my personal life as a tool for change and improvement, and in my professional life as a tool for better understanding and assisting inmate students. i should also point out that i have friends from youth whose family has owned multiple Alphagraphics stores for over 35 years. right from the beginning, they hired a handwriting analyst to screen job candidates. from as far back as 1976, they have shared with me that on the occasions when they have hired someone against her advice, they have regretted it without exception. i think handwriting analysis is a valuable tool to be taken seriously. i feel confident about the long overdue decision to put it to work in my life. i went into this with no horse in the race, with no favorites, perusing the books from smallest to biggest, so i opened McNichols book last, because it was biggest. but when i got there, i stayed there. her approach to the subject matter and overall information provided, combined with her vast experience in forensics, totally carried the day for me.
