The ABCs of Handwriting Analysis is an indispensable tool for anyone hoping to peer behind the letters on a page—professionals responsible for hiring and managing other employees, and hobbyists looking to uncover the truths we reveal through our writing. It demonstrates proven techniques for deconstructing hand-lettering to determine an individual's inner workings—revealing mental aptitudes and emotional characteristics, odd or unusual personality traits, sense of humor, sexual motivation, and many other qualities—all through the critical analysis of the slant, pressure, size, and shape of one's scripted letters. Claude Santoy's step-by-step instruction on the most practical and up-to-date methods of handwriting evaluation includes psychological interpretation of drawings and doodles, methods of determining mental health from handwriting, workbook examples to help readers master the system, and a helpful glossary of terminology. Packed with useful information, The ABCs of Handwriting Analysis is the ultimate guide for anyone interested in uncovering the secrets hidden within handwriting.
