Frequently Asked Questions

What is handwriting analysis?

It is a form of psychology that “identifies, evaluates and understands personality via the strokes revealed by handwriting” (Handwriting University International). 

What does handwriting reveal?

Handwriting reveals over 100 individual personality traits including trust, honesty, enthusiasm, energy, social aptitudes, emotional responsiveness and fears. 

How does handwriting reveal personality?

“Handwriting is often referred to as brain writing. Each personality trait is represented by a neurological brain pattern. Each neurological brain pattern produces a unique neuromuscular movement that is the same for every person who has that particular personality trait. When writing, these tiny movements occur unconsciously. Handwriting is like frozen body language where each written movement or stroke reveals a specific personality trait.” (Bart Baggett)

Who uses handwriting?

Anyone who is interested in gaining a better understanding of herself or himself and others or making a positive change in her or his own life: Individuals, single people, couples, employers, the courts, attorneys, law enforcement, businesses, hypnotherapists, psychologists and therapists. Companies around the world have used the science of handwriting analysis to screen employees and for other business purposes include: IBM, Prudential Life Insurance, Stauffer Chemical, Boise Cascade, Eastman Dillion Union Securities, the Navy, Veteran’s Administration, Central Intelligence Agency, FBI and thousands of other corporations and government intelligence and police departments worldwide.

How accurate is handwriting analysis?

It is highly accurate based on the skill of the expert analyst. Compared to other personality assessment tools and tests, handwriting analysis is sometimes more accurate and more revealing. Handwriting does not lie. There are certain universal traits in handwriting that all people possess.

Is there any science to back it up?

In April, 2002, The National Institute of Justice turned to Sargur Srihara, a computer scientist and director of the Center of Excellence in Document Analysis and Recognition at the University of Buffalo, to help establish that a person’s handwriting was indeed individualistic. This concept plays a key role in courts throughout the world. (Handwriting University International) More recently, studies have shown that handwriting increases neural development and expands in areas of language, memory, word recognition and emotions with handwriting. Dr. Jane Yank, researcher in the area of handwriting notes that making marks by hand has evolved into a reciprocal relationship with developing cognitive centers in the brain.

What if I print and don’t write cursive anymore?

Printing can still be analyzed though cursive writing displays a wider range of traits.
