Evaluated Traits Handwriting Analysis Course
This is a one-of-a-kind advanced trait stroke course that at this time, in this format, you cannot find anywhere else.
Uncovering "hidden" personality traits
Several years ago, in one of my college handwriting analysis classes, one student thoughtfully scrutinized his signature, which looked like this:
Suddenly he shook his head and exclaimed: "I'm not going to do this anymore." In response to our questioning looks he explained that he did not like the looped d's and the personality trait of sensitiveness they stood for.
Eddie proclaimed that from this moment forward he would change his d's. I tried to warn him that altering one particular letter could have dire consequences. But he was determined and started eliminating the loops.
Another student asked if this meant that Eddie suddenly would no longer be afraid of criticism. I suggested that we should watch his handwriting carefully from now on. After about two weeks the d's were still carefully retraced but in addition a new stroke had crept into Eddie's writing.
The letters E and h suddenly showed rigid initial strokes starting from below the baseline.
The students eagerly consulted their dictionaries and found to their surprise that imagination strong (big loop in the h), plus impulsiveness (forward slant), plus resentment (long rigid initial stroke) equals SENSITIVENESS. Eddie's subconscious had played a trick on him. Not only was he still sensitive, he had now added the trait of resentment.
Without knowledge of evaluated traits Eddie would have falsely assumed that he had conquered sensitiveness while in reality, the insidious fear would have continued to fester inside.
He started a program of global grapho-therapy exercises and in due time changed his overall writing in a more positive way. The students, on the other hand, had learned a memorable lesson, namely, that hidden characteristics in handwriting can be evaluated through combinations of basic traits.
A Few Words about Evaluated Traits
Most handwriting analysts are familiar with basic traits. One letter or stroke symbolizes a certain characteristic. Basic traits go back a long time.
More than a hundred years ago, the French Abbé Jean Hypolyte Michon tried to establish a reliable system of handwriting analysis. He collected thousands of writings and interpreted minute details.
In 1875, he published his most important book Système de Graphologie, in which he tried to prove that certain strokes in handwriting (signes fixes) manifest a specific trait of character. Although he depended on empirical observation alone, he was quite successful in his work and at the time of his death in 1881, his signes fixes numbered in the hundreds.
Some of the (signes fixes) listed in his book were:
After Michon's death, Jules Crépieux-Jamin became the most important French graphologist. To him we owe the so-called “Theory of Resultants” which distinguishes between primary and secondary traits. In his book, “L’ECRITURE ET LE CARACTERE” (Paris 1889), he theorized that only the primary traits show. The secondary or “resulting” characteristics have to be evaluated through combinations of primary or basic traits.
Crépieux-Jamin called these evaluated traits resultants. Some of the resultants listed in his book L'Écriture Et Le Caracterè are:
Crépieux-Jamin believed the procedure of establishing evaluated traits or resultants to be one of the most intriguing aspects of graphology.
Crépieux-Jamin claimed that every characteristic in the personality can be found in the writing, either as a basic or as an evaluated trait.
Today, the concept of evaluated traits has become an important part of most contemporary schools of handwriting analysis.
If you would like to learn to work with evaluated traits, or if you would like to refresh your knowledge about evaluated traits, the Evaluated Traits Course is certainly for you.
