From 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 5, you will have the opportunity to learn the basics of handwriting analysis. This will be at the Activity Center and is sponsored by the Lansing Library.
This is a wonderful tool to learn the strong traits or weaknesses of yourself and everyone in your life. It is a way of understanding human nature.
There are two schools, one is Graphology and the other is Grapho-Analysis. Graphology is thousands of years old and was used by the Chinese 3,000 years ago. Grapho-Analysis goes back only about 100 years and was started by Dr. M.N. Bunker in 1911. This is the one I learned first starting about 45 years ago. Both schools are similar but different in terminology.
I was first introduced to this by a friend, who was a certified analyst. He was curious about how my artistic traits would show up in my writing. I was totally amazed and wanted to learn more and have studied and used it ever since. I think every parent, teacher or “boss” should know the basics because it creates an understanding of what makes another person tick. Many years ago I analyzed a whole class of students for an aunt who was a teacher. It helped her a lot in dealing with brilliant as well as difficult students.
I have a lot of fun when going to museums and libraries of famous people and spend much time studying their writings and figuring out what trait caused their successes or failures. It can go both ways.
Have you ever wondered why some of your friends make the judgments they make as opposed to yours? I will give you enough information to be useful in understanding personality traits, therefore you will not be “judgmental.”
Please bring paper and pencil to make notes of anything of interest or have questions about. It is fun and will be a fun evening.
