Choosing Personality Tests: why Handwriting Analysis

There are a wide variety of personality tests you can do and most people enjoy taking a personality quiz.multiple choice answers

However the problem with most personality assessments is that it involves you answering questions about you. Handwriting analysis solves that problem.

As a qualified and well experienced Myers Briggs practitioner, I am an enthusiast of this profile in many ways. However, it, like so many other personality tests, involves answering a long list of questions about yourself and how you would behave in certain circumstances.

I have worked with several different personality assessment tools in my work as a career practitioner, and I have experienced first hand multiple occasions where the individuals self-perception gets in the way of an accurate result.

  • People who want so badly to be “someone else”.
  • People who are impatient with having to answer questions and don’t read them properly.
  • People who’s understanding is limited so they don’t fully understand the questions.
  • People who either have an enormous ego or a downtrodden ego.
  • People who suffer from self deceit.
  • People who think they can manipulate the quiz.

The list goes on.

I work one on one with my profiling clients, within a workshop setting, helping each sort out the profile with which they are most comfortable. But even so there are those who just don’t like being put in a box, being told they are one of “x” number of “types”.

There are more detailed versions of some profiles which can help eliminate some of these problems, but the result is usually a multi-page report that is time consuming and difficult to take in all at once.

That is why I love handwriting analysis as a personality assessment tool.

People cannot manipulate it.

Perhaps you don’t believe that, and think you can change your writing so as to fool the analysis?

You can’t.

You can change your writing, and in doing so you may make the style look different. But in a full page of writing (which would be required for any complete analysis) you cannot change the strokes within the style consistently enough to fool anyone familiar with handwriting analysis.

Even handwriting analysts themselves can’t do that!

Most people think of changing their writing as doing their “best” writing, which is most cases doesn’t change anything at all over their “usual” writing as far as the analysis goes.

Self concept does not affect your handwriting analysis reading.

Someone with a big ego will show they have a big ego, but everything else in their writing will not be inflated by that big ego, as it would be if they were to answer questions about themselves.

Someone who underestimates themselves, or suffers from self deceit will show that in their writing. But their writing will also show all the potential that is there waiting to be harnessed.

Handwriting analysis is very individual. You will not have a “type” or be part of a “group” or a “color”. You will just be you. The totally unique, valuable person you truly are.

Terrible things you don’t know about yourself will most likely not appear, because most people are very very aware of their short comings and know them already. However your blind spots will show, which can be useful in drawing your attention to how they may be holding you back.

Great things about you that you have not acknowledged will show up, because most of us underestimate our abilities and talents.

Another benefit is that you can learn where a behaviour is coming from. Whether it’s your own writing, or someone else’s, you can discover why the writer behaves the way they do.

And this understanding brings power.

Know why someone is behaving a particular way, whether you like the behaviour or not, and it gives you the power to respond appropriately.

Many interpersonal problems are the result of faulty understanding of where the other person is coming from, and why they are behaving in a particular way.

Once you understand, you have a clear picture in front of you as to how best to respond to gain the outcome you want.

I love personality tests. I am fascinated by people, personality and what makes people “tick” in general.

But I truly believe that handwriting analysis gives something no other personality assessment tool can give, and that is individual, personalize, un-forgeable results that can help people in every area of their lives.

  • Career,
  • Employment,
  • Relationships – family, romantic, business and social,
  • Personal Development and Self Growth,
  • Goal Setting

… and don’t let us forget, having fun!

Handwriting analysis can be a lot of fun. You can play games with it. You can build entire parties around it.

So when you think of personality assessment, use whatever other tools you like as well, but always include handwriting analysis in the mix, because it gives information and insights as nothing else can.
