I need to change some aspects of my life, I cam across the book called change Your handwriting, change your life
I don't know anything about handwriting analysis and what it is supposed to reveal about one's personality. In addition to personality I am wondering if smarts has something to do with great penmanship. In school often the people who got the better grades generally had very good penmanship - great size, perfect slant etc. Did any of you also have this experience? How is your handwriting? Of course Doctors for some reason are an exception to this rule but thats another matter.

No.

Recent studies testing the validity of using handwriting for predicting personality traits have been consistently negative, the results of most of the recent surveys on the ability for graphology to access personality and job performance have been negative as well


Graphology at Wikipedia
My handwriting is terrible and (I don't want to stick my neck out too much here) I'm reasonably intelligent.

Arvind personally I don't believe this line change Your handwriting, change your life but you will find a lot of people enchanting this. Your handwriting is decided by your brain. Your attitude has a higher impact on your handwriting. To change your life you have to change your attitude.

It is true that the way of thinking can be determined by an experienced graphologist. There are a number of cases where graphologists have solved cases based upon handwriting itself. But it doesn't means that this will change your life and give you success.

I will give you an example here:

I was told that a small girl was extremely fearful from the beginning itself. As she stared growing up her fear also started possessing her especially about her father. When taken to a graphologist she was asked to draw any image. She drew a small house with 3 members standing with it and one male standing far apart. On being asked she told that 3 members means she, her mother and her sister while the man standing apart is her father. When the graphologist asked about the crack she told I don't know why I had drawn it.

Later the case was solved and the reason of being fearful was identified. She drew that crack because while in her childhood they face an earthquake and her father was on work that day. So she was very tensed about her father and that feeling captured her in her unconscious brain.


Moreover it is really very very tough to change your handwriting as the pulse directly comes from your brain. You may want to write in a different way and you may write also intentionally but later you will again come on your default track.

About getting better grades is simply attracting the teacher through beauty of the words. It doesn't have to do anything with the intelligence.
see the sample of the Albert Einstein

So I think that you must have got idea that what role does this handwriting have in our life and yes it has nothing to do with intelligence.

My handwriting is so poor that even I can't read it.

I think this means my handwriting is so poor that even I can't read it.

I can't read more into it than that.

Changing your handwriting is not going to change some totally different aspect of your life. This kind of reasoning is a good example of magical thinking.

Tackle the problems that you have in your life directly, and not via strange magical reasoning.

Like Mark, I can't read my own handwriting. That is why the Gods invented laptops.

It's also true that taller people get better and higher-paying jobs. I'm still waiting for the book "Get Taller and Change Your Life" so that I can get one of those jobs.

The thing that has been pointed out to me about my handwriting many times is that I don't really have a particular "font." I have several different ways of forming any given letter, and I mix them up randomly, sometimes writing the same letter different ways within the same word. It's a rather strange effect if I do say so myself. I don't do it deliberately.

So what conclusion should you draw from this. Am I creative? Disorganized? Rebellious? Conflicted? Open-minded?

My personal theory is that I inadvertently learned to use the wrong part of my cerebral cortex for writing. The part that I use is used by most people for storing useless information about American Idol contestants (which explains, I think, why I have no interest in reality TV.)

I'm reminded of a misguided genetics experiment in which the tails of animals (probably mice or rats) were removed immediately after birth, with the expectation that future generations would eventually be born with snubbed tails.

Even within a person, handwriting varies greatly. If I am writing a note to myself, I write quickly. If I write something to someone else, I take the time to write it clearly.

May be they can change from thumb-impressions to toe-impressions. :roll:

Your writing may reveal your personality or state of mind.

Vice-versa also may be true. (change your writing and change your personality)

People who sign their name in a way that resembles "B I L L G A T E S" have on average a higher success rate than people whose signatures don't look like that.

Any male of the Jewish faith (and many other cultures as well) could have invalidated that hypothesis if they'd just asked.
