There is a great deal to be leart from a careful inspection and consideration of handwriting, and this book offers a guide to the principles involved. Graphologists claim that a person's natural temperament and characteristics are revealed by their handwriting. A bold energetic person will have a firm ascending hand, while someone disappointed and unhappy will have a descending, failing style. A frank person will use open legible characters, while someone deceitful will write words which are indistinct and slurred. Our virtues and vices are shown in the way we cross out t's, dot our i's and shape our letters. And while the circomstances of life may alter our handwriting in small details, the prominent characteristics remain. By following the guide outlined in this book, those characteristics may be observed and correctly interpreted.
