I believe graphology is the only medium where the process of analysis becomes the cure in itself.
There is nothing much needed after the analysis session. I see individuals feel the impact with each statement. It is like every truth is setting them free. Each statement of analysis helps you heal yourself and uncover your true self like the layers of the onion...and just like the onion, you realize there is nothing much to you. We worry so unnecessarily. We worry and form an image and use that image to scare ourselves. There are times when people call me for 4 to 5 days at a stretch, ask all the possible questions in the world related to graphology and end up not coming to me at all. Maybe coming to an analysis includes letting go of fear.
Maybe those who come to me are already on the journey to heal themselves.
I was in a company collecting handwriting samples for my project. I have fortunately or unfortunately developed this habit of looking at whatever handwriting comes in front of me and analyzing it. The brain just starts working and it seems that I have no control over myself sometimes. I didn't control myself at this particular office too and before I knew it, there was this really enthused group who wanted to know at least 2-3 points about them. :)
Amongst them was a really bright looking lady. The one thing that struck me about her were her marketing skills. She seemed to be really really good at marketing. I told her so and she just gleamed from ear to ear. This should have been my clue but I guess I missed it. She asked me what "marketing" really meant. I told her that marketing as per graphology means
Ability to express ideas in a powerful manner
Sell ideas or products really well
Communicate with unknown people well
I added, also, a practical example could be that when you argue or when you are done presenting your idea or point of view, people rarely deny it.
She nodded her head on this and continued to smile.
We were sitting next to the HR area, and the lady got up and congratulated the HR on hiring her. She was actually responsible for handling marketing for the company. I was so pleased because the energy in that area was amazing. The lady was simply glowing. Imagine what she must have felt. Like all of us, who work, we always have doubts about what area of work to get into... Is sales really for me? Would I do good in csr? Why don't I get promotion in this field if I like it... All such questions must have been answered. If she was ever worried, all that must have gone.
I contacted her later and asked her if she would like to tell me how she felt so I could put it in my blog, but that didn't work out. Anyway, Imagine how the HR must have felt? There are so many times when we are confused between candidates and pick the one who is negotiating the best or is looking good on the ref check. The ref check story I will share later but the HR must have felt so good about herself and her skills to judge people.
It was a very pleasant experience to be there at the moment.
Graphology can help you understand a lot of things like - Stress level, health issues, personal nature, ability to work hard, ego and other abilities that can ensure that I talk for about 2 hours at least but it cannot predict the ability to give feedback sadly. I have a amusing story ahead, I was asked a question recently that I just didn't have an answer to.
I recently met a lady who knew herself really well. She is in the senior management of a company and had come to me for a mini analysis. She seemed happy with the analysis and I think I helped her with the solutions she was looking for. She was slightly unhappy with her boss because of his talkative nature and since she was to change her job soon she decided not to waste any time on it. While getting up, she asked me, "Can u tell me which traits can tell me if a person will give feedback like PIGS" I kept staring at her, hoping she would tell me what it meant, some new term...
Thankfully, she did. She said - Positive Immediate Graphic and Specific. I realized about 8-10 seconds that that is what PIGS stood for. I asked her if this was for the future boss and she sat down and gave me a big YES. I told her that there is no such trait, but a mix of traits and it would be difficult to judge accurately even for me. She sighed and said she would anyway get her future boss's sign for me if possible. To which I had to smile and agree.
It is amazing, I learn something new everyday. :)
It is really strange how life is...what you have learnt at what stage in life gets used somewhere completely else... I was talking to my friend about her dreams and she told me that she saw a few mountains and sun rise. It was a beautiful dream and some sign of hope she needed. Her dad is unwell and chances of survival are very less. So this dream was a beautiful sign for her. She was so happy that she called me early morning to tell me about it.
What is strange is that she asked me what else could it mean? At the same time, the interpretation of drawing analysis was running in my mind. I told her that mountains signify problems and the sun signifies father. so since she saw the sun rise, it is an extremely positive sign that her father is rising up from the problems. She was happy to know and I was delighted to answer.The best thing I love about my work is that I delight people more than less :)

I would like to take this opportunity provided by this forum to ask you what basic to be prepared to start learning graphology. Once one of my friend did the handwriting analysis for me and told me my characteristics which was all true. That lead my interest to learn graphology and have a add on in my experience and utilize it in my career ( HR).
I tried to read and understan from one of the book ( name i forgot) but i was unable to understand anything. So if you can tell me how I can start my work on this, that would be really appreciating.
