Graphology and personality: 5 main characteristics of writing

With in the analysis of the handwriting of the graphologists they try to know aspects of the personality that the analyzed person does not want to present to us / show usEither because it does not suit him, because he ignores them, or simply because they do not seem relevant to him.

In addition, handwriting analysis is also used to compare information obtained by other techniques, such as self-reports or a personal interview. The latter is most common in personnel selection processes.

What can graphology bring us?

These techniques are currently used in Spain. In France its use is more important, it is estimated that between 50 and 75% of companies use it. In 1991 (date of the last independent study) 90% of French companies have directly or indirectly used the information provided by the act.

How is a script parsed?

To explain how handwriting analysis works, I always use the same example, graphology is like putting together a puzzle.

If you are looking at a room that you probably don’t know anything about it, where it is going, or what is depicted in it, you can also vaguely recognize something in that room, by relating that room to the four correspondents. something familiar, it’s probably with little poise, but as you connect rooms, your perception of the subject will adjust more to reality. Maybe you are looking at a piece that is very characteristic, for example the tiger eye reflected in the puzzle, then you will know the meaning of that piece, and more or less where it will be located.

5 variables with interpretations shared by the vast majority of graphologists

Continuing the puzzle metaphor, I will now write about some pieces that graphologists seek to make sense of with little or no need to relate them to others.

Because, in all scripture variables from which interpretations are generated, there is a group of associations with the corresponding personality traits to which they refer. These are usually stable signs that can be interpreted in a straightforward way, however, graphologists compare more data. In other words, in graphology, these variables generate fairly stable conclusions about the subject’s personality in most cases.

1. Mixture of lowercase and uppercase

This situation occurs when we see a text in which, being lowercase predominant, there is also the presence of uppercase letters (ignoring those necessary for correct spelling). Upper case letters are interspersed with lower case letters.

this sign has been linked to the typology of the unfaithful cashier. This would be the sign of a tendency to theft and disloyalty on a daily basis. However, graphologists pay attention to the other variables presented in the text and contrast with the fact that there is no reasonable confrontation in the aspects related to fidelity. In other words, they check that the other variables in the text do not clearly indicate the opposite. .

(Example of writing in upper and lower case)

2. elevation of the middle zone

What is the uprising? Quickly, this text (for example, in a signature) is bigger than it is wide. And the middle zone? All this area which is framed between the upper and lower limit of the oval of a writing, (eg: the letter -o-; the oval of -d-, -g- or -P-) is c That is to say, let’s say, it includes the area in which are written all the letters which do not have an upper or lower projection (hampas or jambs respectively, in graphological slang).

In graphology, the elevation of the middle zone is considered as a negative sign in most cases, may suggest a certain arrogance in the personality, pride, elation of the eye… A haughty, proud, conceited person and not very pleasant to face the fact of this “superior” that he feels, surely presents this variable in writing, in signature or in both. I remember another golden rule of graphology: the fact that a sign is not present does not indicate connotations contrary to those presented if there is one.

For example, the signature of Himmler (Mighty Nazi Commander) and the signing of Donald trump (US presidential candidate).

(The two signatures to the left of Mr. Trump, the two to the right of Himmler)

3. Filiformity

Filiformity refers to the type of writing that takes the form of a thread. It’s typical to see this in cartoons when a letter appears, they usually didn’t bother to represent readable words and just draw a line with brief swings and like separations during writing. real. Filiformity is printing a line (or almost a line) where there should be a shape, for example, is typical in the -m- or -n-, the mountains decrease until sometimes due to the dynamism be drawn just a streak.

A distinction should be made between general thread uniformity and partial thread uniformity. It can be an entire filiform word (thread. General), it can only be threadlike at the end (very common) or certain combinations of letters (thread. Partial). In graphology, general filiformity will have a more positive interpretation than partial, being the partial linked to the lack of sincerity, the lack of authenticity of the person or neurotic conflicts.

It is also mandatory to distinguish between the dynamically executed threadlike writing and the high speed of the slow threadlike, the former has positive connotations, it would be attributable, as a tendency, to a person with good social skills, negotiation skills, strategic common sense or diplomatic skills. On the slow thread, we have to realize, reproduce, think about how this type of writing was performed. The thread uniformity is normal when the writing speed is accelerated, this is a characteristic indicative of the speed, however, someone who produces thread uniformity at low speed is doing it on purpose, this subject intentionally produces slow and unreadable writing, by more normally the situation arises that the skinny writer has a high graphic culture therefore the hypothesis of lack of capacity for writing is generally dismissed. Writing expressly illegible, in the words of Manuel J. Moreno: “[…] we can face snobbish attitudes and inauthenticity “

The following image writing is of the politician Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, Slow and extreme filiformity.

(Samples of threadlike writings. Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba on the left, unknown samples on the right)

4. Dissociation

The graphic phenomenon by which the oval of the palote is separated is called dissociation. This can happen in letters such as -d-, -g- and -P-. This happens when the oval is performed on the one hand and the palote on the other hand, in this case we have a dissociation in the writing. It is a sign very easy to notice, it strikes the eye a bit, and even depending on the pattern of spaces that this writing maintains, it can confuse us in reading by taking the oval for a -o- and la palote for a – L- (in the letter -d-)

This sign, in the words of Manuel J. Moreno, And the connection with psychoanalytic theories, “could be the symbolic exteriorization of a tendency to split or conflict between the self and (the unconscious)”. For his part, Augusto Vels relates it to the quality of the family relationship in childhood “[…] The mere fact that the two elements are separate is an excellent sign of conflict or disagreement, a common sign among people who lived a childhood with unhappy parents. […] and that they felt emotionally marginalized “

(Sample of dissociated writing. “Dignity” and “Gradient”)

(Sample of dissociated writing. Word “Córdoba”)

5. The surrounding section

Going into the terminology, the heading is the scribble when signing, the illegible, and the signature the readable part, of course any combination between them can occur in a person’s autograph, there can be no that signature, only section, both, etc. It is called the heading surrounding the graphic the layout surrounding the signature. It’s very common, you probably know someone who signs like this.

In graphology it is associated with the taste for care, if necessary to feel protected in the family or marriage. In a positive graphical environment, it is linked to prudence and prudence. Maurici Xandró, explains: “This corresponds to a movement of introversion and the manifestation of a feeling of youthful inferiority. […] Almost unanimously, graphologists see a gesture of protection and isolation, which is also right. “

(Example of writing: surrounding section, signature “Pedro Jiménez”)

Graphology is a complement, another technique of the repertoire

In the analysis and interpretation of the Scriptures there is a rule which is present from the first moment. If you’re asking a graphologist, chances are your question is “and … What do you mean when I lean to the right?” or “What about those who sign with a doodle that never looks like over and over again?” and the most normal answer is that it resolves the doubts presented, at least at first, but then the professional you asked will probably make you mention the need to compare this particular fact that you raised with other variables present. in writing for a correct and firm interpretation.

The need to contrast with the other variables comes from the differentiation between positive graphical environment and negative graphical environment., To be able to have the same variable of the writing of the different interpretations according to the graphic atmosphere in which it is found. The graphics environment is determined by a number of aspects, the assessment must be done separately due to the extension.
