How to write a handwriting sample for analysis

The right handwriting sample is the most important aspect that will enable a graphologist analyze your handwriting accurately. Too little or too programmed sample can cause inaccurate analysis and result in misleading directions.

Graphology is a science in which the personality and mindset of the writer is analyzed by the graphologist based on the strokes in the handwriting.

For the analysis to be accurate, the quality of the sample has to follow certain directions – which I am detailing below.

  • Write the sample on an A4 size paper white unruled paper using a ball pen. One full page or a page and a half is preferred.
  • Add a signature at the end of the paper – as you would sign anywhere else. Do not over-improvise and/or try to write in the neatest way as that will not reflect your current state of mind.
  • Do not write on the back side of the paper. Also, please keep in mind that we will analyze only scanned handwriting sample. Photographed handwriting samples will not be analyzed.
  • Pen your own thoughts on the paper, i.e. do not copy the text from anywhere.
  • Do not worry if your spellings are a bit off or you are not too sure about the grammar. It is okay to just “speak your mind out” on the paper. The more spontaneous you are, the more accurate the analysis will be.
