way we craft the letters and words in our Handwriting can indicate
our personality traits. Analysis (study) of Handwriting is termed
as Graphology. Just like fingerprints, no two handwritings are
identical. Every unique variation in our strokes, loops, slants,
spacing, pressure, etc is meaningful and a Graphologist can
evaluate easily our personality (inner self) quite accurately.
Such a capable Graphologist from Salem, Tamil Nadu is Mr. V. Arun,
who has done decades of research in this subject.
Octogenarian Mr. V. Arun (Mobile:09442906081) has served as the
Headmaster of a school, and later mastered the science of
Graphology , Psychiatry, Counselling etc. He does not confine
himself to character analysis, but predicts the future and also
the probable ailments in the body and mind. Mr. V. Arun offers
guidance in matrimonial matters, selection of employees, analysis
of Forged signatures, better academic performance to students etc.
Mr. V. Arun has published several papers on Handwriting and
delivered lectures among students and the public.Here, he shares
his wisdom with EST readers.
Q: What made you
take interest in Graphology?
The first reason was that my father highly disliked my handwriting,
which was very illegible. As a student, itiwas a big drawback to me,
which continued in my professional matters also. In 1969, I found a
book on Graphology in a public Library. This was the starting point
to a search that took me deep into the subject.
Q: What is the significance of Graphology?
Just as an artists painting can reveal a lot about the
nuances of painting and also the artists special talent, the
handwriting can reflect the executive capacity of the writer.
Handwriting provides a clear picture of your mind. The nervous
system carries commands from brain to hand. Some people write
differently at different times. When the handwriting is wavy,
the person can be either nervous, very anxious about the result of
an errand etc. Actual characteristics of a person depend on
significant aspects of the writing such as pressure, slant, size
Q: How do you analyse the Handwriting of a
Sixteen different Handwriting characteristics such as rhythm,
margins, spacing, tempo etc portray the physical and mental
condition (state) of the writer. So I have devised a Format and I
ask the client to write that, which consists of Numerals, script,
signature etc. Then I start analyzing the size and shape of the
letters, beginning and end strokes, regularity in letter slant,
connective forms between letters etc. I compare the script with the
signature. Placement of the signature assumes importance.
Here are a few specimens :
Specimen 1 from Mrs. Sudha Raghunathan
For a vernacular magazine, I analysed the Handwriting of a very
popular Carnatic Musician Mrs. Sudha Raghunathan, which was
greatly appreciated by the singer herself and others.
I deduced from her handwriting that she has been educated in a
Convent; she possesses high Intelligent Quotient. She is very
creative, not taking decisions without adequate thinking, loving
solitude, liking literature, self-disciplined, possessing good
Specimen 2 from a student
The above students handwriting revealed Flatulence and
digestive disorders, which added to his not-sogood academic
performance. I suggested changes both in the handwriting and
The Numerals indicate Respiratory problems. After my suggestion of
undergoing proper medical care, the client experienced improvement
in health conditions. Medical-Graphology is my special area of
interest and I have directed many persons to medical care, just by
analyzing their handwriting, which reveal the hitherto unnoticed
Anyone can easily learn Graphology; first start with your own
Handwriting and your behavioural pattern.
Q: What is perceived from the signature of
When a person puts a signature, he knows (consciously
that some aspects
are on display. From the style and form of the signature, the
Graphologist can perceive the way the writer want others to see him;
a sort of pretence will be there. Your signature is your light and
destiny. I suggest signature alteration to promote business
prospects, to get success in all undertakings, to improve
behavioural pattern etc. Placing dots in signature does not suit
