Here’s where to find answers to your questions

This is about a rather esoteric subject (handwriting analysis) as it applies to decision making.

We all have to make decisions regarding human interactions. Whom to hire, to trust to marry, to date to travel with or loan money to, etc.

This decision making process need not be fought with danger. With a full working knowledge of the interpretation of the structures and formations in any suspect handwriting, the writing itself will address all your inquiries and questions.

I have been doing this for decades, and the knowledge of handwriting has saved me from danger many many times. And may have even saved my life.

The personality disordered inhabit all walks of life. All ages and all nationalities. You cannot determine who is sane and who is insane just by looking at them. However, with the correct and proper training, you can and will be able to determine who can and cannot be trusted and why.

The process of analyzing writing is akin to archeology or akin to the the decipher of the Rosetta Stone. It is not easy and is complex, taking many years of experience to learn (a Ph.D. in psychiatry would be helpful). Along with a concise knowledge of the history and development of writing systems throughout history.

However, once learned and applied, the benefits are virtually limitless. Why am I writing this? I am often surprised when people say that the analysis of script is a hobby or a parlor game. This is far from the truth. Imagine if the victims of abuse of all types could have been forewarned of the danger.

I doubt that handwriting analysis will be widely accepted in my lifetime or in even in a hundred years from now. I am writing this because it needs to be said.

Once, I saw one a cable TV program, a scenario was that a person was gone missing, and presumed abducted. A quick review of the writing left behind indicated that the individual in question had simply left for places of their choosing. At the end of the program this was revealed to be so.

It is my belief that a redo of the alphabet taught in pre-school and elementary schools, would go along way to “dis-inhibit” young minds.

It is a truism that the meaning of a formation in one person script, could and often does have, the opposite meaning in another writers script. Additionally, single formations have more than one meaning.

People might think that this or that formation say, an unfinished lower loop always has the same meaning. This is untrue. It kinda like soup, the various ingredients flavor the entire soup.

This letter is not intended to be an introduction to handwriting analysis, but I am hopeful this will spark and interest in the subject.

  • Happy Easter

    For the world’s more than 2 billion Christians, Easter is the day that defines their faith.
    The exact date of Christ’s resurrection is unknown, and even the precise locations of his crucifixion and burial are uncertain. This hasn’t stopped some people from saying they know the answer to these questions and others from trying to find out for themselves, or simply arguing about it.

    Drive anywhere in Maryland and it seems there is one highway construction project after another. While it is good to see our roads and bridges being upgraded, it can be nerve-wracking for anyone traveling a long distance.
