The art of interpreting handwriting

The message of a letter you read might be important, but aren't the real feelings of the writer of the message what are really important? Knowingly or unwittingly, we give away a surprising amount about our feelings, ideas, views and outlook on life through our handwriting. Interpreting the features of people's handwriting is what graphology is all about, and it's a useful skill for anybody dealing with letters and notes that peers or co-workers have written as well as offering a fascinating insight into our own emotions and personalities.


In this section we aim to look at a whole variety of handwriting features and give interpretations as to the writers' personalities, helping you apply this as you want in everyday life.
