MASTER Course of Handwriting Analysis


The Master course replaces the Step-by-Step System of Handwriting Analysis (“SSS” course).

Important Notice: Prerequisite for enrollment in the Master course is successful completion of the Comprehensive Course.

The Master Course was designed with professionals in mind. It is for elite corps of dedicated analysts with the intelligence and curiosity to comprehend this unique system. It is for bright, intelligent individuals who are excited and enthused about delving as deeply as possible into graphology and who want to use the science in a businesslike and profitable way.

Master Course – The only integrated system


The Master course is the only course that integrates the trait stroke method with the following aspects of the Gestalt system:

  1. the contraction-release system originally expounded by Klages;
  2. Pulver’s theory of depth as an unconscious expression of the writer’s psychic and physical energy;
  3. Saudek’s thesis of writing speed as one of the foundations upon which other data rests.

Based upon the above theories, the SSS analyzes four major components of handwriting, namely:

  1. vertical movement
  2. horizontal movement
  3. form and
  4. depth

The Master course is not alone in utilizing the above theories. They are incorporated to a greater or lesser degree in most contemporary graphological schools.

The Master course, however, combines all of these fundamental theories in one logical system.

The Master was inspired by the principles of Otto Junge’s “Rational Graphology” in that it is based upon objective measurements and ratings and assigns equal quantitative weight to each handwriting component.

The Master differs from Rational Graphology in that it is more systematically organized. Junge designed 100 “Expression Tables” and evaluated between ten and twenty variables for one personality trait. The various traits were grouped in five syndromes with the smallest syndrome containing five and the largest encompassing forty-two characteristics. The Master consistently evaluates ten components per trait. The traits are then grouped in eight syndromes of five traits each.

The Master is designed in a logical sequence so that by executing six steps the analyst automatically produces an accurate, objective analysis every time.

Why the Master course? Because…

  1. The Master course gives you the deepest possible insight into the personality
  2. By combining the trait stroke and the gestalt methods into one unique system, It is a one-kind of a course that, to our knowledge, is not available anywhere in the world
  3. The Master course is the only course that comes with a…
  • FREE 4-volume set of bonus books on measuring
  • FREE extra volume with trait descriptions – you will never run out of things to say in an analysis
  • FREE support program
  • FREE diploma (upon fulfillment of diploma requirements)
  1. The Master course is taught by a practicing graphologist with a Masters degree or a Ph. D. in psychology and advanced knowledge about the course. At the KAROHS International School of Handwriting Analysis®, a degree in psychology is a MUST for ALL trainers.

The Master course system is easy to learn

Although this is a complex course, it is organized and in such a way that it is easy to learn. It is designed in a logical sequence so that by following three steps, the analyst automatically produces an accurate, objective analysis every time.image007

With the Master course you get everything up front

Most handwriting analysis schools will send you one lesson at a time. That means that if at some time you have to temporarily interrupt your studies, you will get no lessons during that time.

And if, for some reason you have to quit the course, you will never get the rest of the materials, even though you paid for them. With the Master course, you get all books, study materials, tests, model answers and bonus books up front.

As soon as your order has been received and processed, everything is shipped to immediately. We keep sufficient stock in our warehouse that we can mail you the whole BIG package without delay. This means that within a few days you can start your lessons.


The Master Course takes the pain out of writing the analysis

Many analysts find report writing the most difficult part of handwriting analysis. They have carefully measured, scored, or rated the handwriting sample, but when it came to actually writing the analysis, the proper word or correct phrase simply would not come to you?

With the Master course of Handwriting Analysis, analysts no longer have to search for appropriate descriptions and phrases. You have to do no painful report writing of your own.

All definitions are provided in the following books:

  • two BIG volumes of trait descriptions
  • one more book with “More Trait Descriptions”
  • one book with advanced descriptions
  • four volumes of descriptions for measured indicators


Books and study materials:

PART I of the Master Course:

Book One:
Getting Started: A Guide To Using The System

This book leads you in a step-by-step manner through the course.

Book Two:
Scoring Guide

This book lists all handwriting indicators to be scored.

You simply move in the Scoring Guide from one item to the next and check off the appropriate items on the Score Sheet.

Book Three:
Sample Scoring Pages

This book is used in combination with Book One: Scoring Guide.
It gives you explanations and illustrations for all indicators.

Most analysts use this book only for a limited time.

Once they are familiar with the indicators, they no longer have to refer to the sample illustrations.

Book Four and Five:
Trait Descriptions

These two books give you comprehensive descriptions for all personality traits on the Master course Trait Inventory.
Since each trait is determined through ten different indicators, each analysis will be unique, no matter how often the descriptions are used. It is almost impossible that the same combination will occur twice.

Book Six:
More Trait Descriptions

This 200 pp. volume gives you many more ways to write the analysis

Book Seven:

Measuring Guide and Measurement

Most analysts seem to agree that measuring indicators is the least liked aspect of handwriting analysis. The Master Course keeps measuring to an absolute minimum, but for the sake of accuracy a number of indicators have to be measured. Book Seven explains in detail how to take each measurement.

 PART II of the Master Course: Advanced Section 

Book Eight:
Uncovering the problem personality

Book eight teaches you how to analyze:

  1. the antisocial personality
  2. depression
  3. hostility
  4. paranoid tendencie
  5. schizophrenic tendencies

suicidal tendencies

Book Nine:
How To Analyze Printing

Analyzing printing tends to be one of the most difficult tasks for many handwriting
analysts. In fact, many of them are so intimidated that they refuse printing and insist upon a cursive sample for analysis. But this can result in an erroneous picture of a writer’s personality. If the habitual printer is “forced “ to produce cursive writing, the sample is usually is very immature and childish looking. Felix Klein, a renowned graphologist, said about people who have printed for years that their personality has become “stuck” at the age at which printing became habituated.”

Printing is not really difficult to analyze. Most of the rules that apply to cursive writing are applicable to printing. With some practice, you should be quite comfortable with analyzing printed script. I hope that this booklet will help to make it easier for my students and graduates to interpret both cursive and printing for their clients.

16 Lessons with model answers

The course includes 16 Lessons with model answers.

Students may use these lessons to test themselves or they may submit them for individualized comments and corrections.

Course Organization

The Master course of Handwriting Analysis is organized in logical sequence, It starts with scoring the writing and leads the student in 3 steps to the finished analysis report. “Book One: A Guide to Using the System” explains each individual step.

Step One: Scoring the Score Sheet

For each trait, handwriting analysts follow the “Book One: Scoring Guide” and score ten indicators. 
This makes the system very accurate. Most importantly, each analysis is truly a description of an individual rather than a general report. The score sheet is only for reference by the analyst.

Step Two: Entering Scores on the Personality Trait Inventory

Trait scores are transferred from the score sheet to the Personality Trait Inventory, which lists the 40 traits clustered in 8 syndromes.

The eight syndromes are:

  • Driving Forces
  • Intellect
  • Functional Ability
  • Interpersonal Relations
  • Productivity, sexual desires
  • Vulnerability to Stress
  • Defenses
  • Problem Areas, sexual fears

Each syndrome contains 5 traits for a total of 40 personality characteristics.

The Personality Trait Inventory is included with the analysis report for the client.

Step Three: Writing the Handwriting Analysis Report

For the report, analysts use “Book Four” and “Book Five: Trait Descriptions and Interpretations for Graphic Indicators.”

These books contain detailed definitions for all traits and graphic indicators.
To write an analysis, analysts no longer have to search for appropriate descriptions and phrases. And since the combination of indicators for each individual is different, reports will be different, too, no matter how often the descriptions are use.

Bonus Books :

Still not Convinced?

Well, here’s what real people just like YOU have said:

Greetings Erica: 

I hope all is going well with you. Recently, I took the AAHA’s Associate test examination which was evaluated by three judges/evaluators. AAHA informed me that I successfully passes the exam. Part 1 with a score of 97 and Part 2 reflecting a score of 95. The exam was challenging. I used your SSS course and it yielded some impressive findings. Again, thank you for your dedication throughout your career as you became a lighthouse to many others who are on their journey. Remain Well, David


“Your course is everything I had hoped for… times 10!”

“Hi Erika, Now that I am halfway through, I want to tell you how absolutely “blown away” I am by the SSS course and your amazingly complete and comprehensive materials. It is everything I had hoped for…times 10!

I know that when I have completed this course, I will be ready, able and, most importantly, truly confident in doing the type of professional analyses that I dreamed of. Thank you!

I would be honored to have you use my quote (with my name) as a testimonial for the SSS course. your course is one of the very few things I feel strongly enough about to put my name on the line!”

Sally Haugen

“It is not as difficult as I initially thought it was going to be.”

“I am very proud to say that I’ve finished my first report with the SSS course! Yeah!!! It is not as difficult as I initially thought it was going to be. Perhaps it was just the brilliant way in which you explained how one should go about doing the analysis, that did the trick. Thank you for a wonderful course.”

Anzel Gerber

It may be the be all and end all for graphology courses.”

“Erika, I definitely think I made the right decision in buying your course. I’m beginning to get the idea that it may be the be all and end all for graphology courses. Wow! I like having all the measurements which to my way of thinking makes the analysis less subjective to opinion and just work with fact. Also, I’m very pleased with how quickly you respond to my emails.”

“The Step-By-Step Course is excellent. In the last month, I have done eight comprehensive analysis reports and the feedback from the subjects has been excellent. Your method has enabled me to accurately analyze these subjects with a high degree of accuracy.”

Don Blois

“Your SSS course does more than educate.”

“Erika, I was just working on lesson 11 and I have to stop and send along this compliment. I have collected and read a plethora of books on handwriting analysis (this has been an interest of mine since I was a teen) but I’ve never felt confident that I could do an analysis “right” because a lot of the instructions were too subjective (i.e. “hang the sample on a wall upside down and look at it from a distance then record how it makes you feel” or “no need to measure slant, with some practice you can eyeball it…”). Or worse they were vague and unclear. I’ve often said to myself something like, “That’s an arcade? I could have sworn it was a garland. Wait a minute… do arcades only run along the top… can you have them both together… aaaaargh!” So I have to tell you that I really appreciate all the work you’ve put into creating volumes of examples and clear, concise, and thorough explanations. I can check and then double check. I can cross-reference to my heart’s content.

I just love being able to find all the information I need right at my fingertips, and in such an easy-to-use format! Your SSS course does more than educate me… it instills confidence and a much-appreciated feeling of professionalism. I just had to tell you that I really appreciate the amazing amount of work you’ve put into this course. I love this course! I almost don’t want to be finished with it… I’ll miss my studies :)”

Francine Morrissette

“Erika, Thank you so much for your teaching. It’s hard for me to really convey to you how valuable your Step-By-Step course is. Your reference material that is truly rare in nature gives me the ability to work hard, make money, and have fun at the same time. You are such an amazing woman. Thank you, Erika.”

Greg Whitaker Certified Master Handwriting Analyst

“Erika, I want to thank you for all your help with the SSS. You always answered my questions quickly and you have made me feel like I am your only student (how do you do that???); I appreciate that!”

Francine Morrissette

“The SSS course is really excellent and I can see that you must have put endless hours into its development.”

Susan Copperdale

“Erika, I recently completed your book,”How to Make Your Handwriting Analysis Sell” (a bonus book with the SSS course). It is by far the best book that I have read on how to get started. You have given me every tiny detail, things that I would have not thought of until much later. I have been following your words of wisdom and I am very proud to say that my business is well on the way. I look forward to actually turning my skill into a productive business. Thank you so very, very much for your help. Thank you for sharing your trials and errors with us and letting us know about pitfalls. Thank you for making sure that your students understand the ins and outs of this career and making sure to hold us to a higher standard. A very ethical standard.”

“It was nice to know that the fee you charge for the course is all inclusive, and that the diploma is not an extra fee. And what a lovely diploma it is.”
