I read an interesting book the other day called Handwriting Analysis: Putting it to work for you. It's a book about Graphology, or the art of reading personalit traits through handwriting. It tells you how to catch someone lying, or tell if someone is psychotic, or on drugs..
I have to admit, I was skeptical, then then they incuded some copies of Charles Manson writings, and well as copies of the original Zodiac messages. Sure enough, that maniac D was present on both writings. (Mansons was crazy looking, and hard to read- but I did and it was disturbing!) They also showed how your writing can change over time, due to mood. They had several celebrity authographs to show this. (Marilyn Monroe was one. They had her signature right before her death.)So then I performed a few tests of my own. I told my mom to write down five things about her that I didn't know about her, but make one a lie. Just by looking at the way she wrote, I picked her lie out in about 3 seconds- not bad at all considering I'm no expert
Needless to say, foiund the book fairly accurate, and downright useful.. It was written a few decades ago, so you probably won't find it, but you can pick up other books on the subject, I'm sure.. It's useful because you can tell how peopel REALLY feel about you if they write a note to you. It is pretty awesome, my mom quit work recently, and a bunch of peopel signed a card and wrote her little mesages. I felt them to all be heartfelt, except one, and guess rom who? Her old boss.. I could tell she wasn't happy she left, but hey on that salary, you'd better be thankful she gave you two weeks notice, bitch.
So anyway, id this stuff interests you, pick up a book on it. It not only tells you that stuff, but also how to keep your identity safe as well what handwriting traits that are considered bad. (Felon's hook, most embezzlers have one.) It's pprobably not all right, but so far I have put somehings to work for me, and it seems pretty accurate so far..
