Interdisciplinary Learning CoursesGraphology: what your handwriting says about your personality

How is writing a sample of your personality?

A blank piece of paper and a pencil, no more is needed in childhood to scribble. Who does not remember those afternoons full of drawing? Or when we began to learn to write, copying those lines and pressing down so much the pencil would go through the paper, almost as if we had a superpower. Our mind and our hand were looking for a bridge to show our personality, our sense of control. Communicating with the outside world was part of our goal. The hand does what the mind tells us

The way of we write, how we describe the content through handwriting, offers us a projection of the most intimate self. Handwriting is alive and evolves with maturity, trembles with fear or is firm when we have confidence. Culture asks us for a unique identity through our signature to authorize our personal and non-transferable brand. And we ask ourselves, what does it say about us?
