Entrepreneurial leaders are key to economic success in postmodern society. This paper indicates that Gestalt graphologists, using handwriting alone, are able to. Today, there exist two major schools of graphology, namely the (1) Trait Stroke method and (2) the “Gestalt” approach. (“Gestalt” = German for “figure” or overall . Tested whether Gestalt graphologists were able to identify successful entrepreneurs, on the basis of handwriting alone. 40 pairs of handwriting samples were.

Trait stroke method asserts that a specific stroke formation reveals a certain personality trait. All that had been done up to then consists only of interesting but by no means fundamental essays. The Psychology of Handwriting. Although Michon depended on empirical observation alone, he was very successful. He was a shrewd observer of human nature and gained considerable experience through his lifelong studies in handwriting analysis.
He was a born empiricist. The following is just a small part of his considerable list.
He theorized that only primary or basic traits show directly in handwriting whereas secondary or resulting characteristics must be evaluated through combinations of primary traits. A few examples of resultants were: He is generally considered the founder of the French school of graphology. Contrary to the claims of certain graphology schools that they have developed their own system, the French school is still the primary basis of trait stroke graphology.
One school that has long claimed to have done major research in the field of trait stroke analysis is the International Graphoanalysis Society, with Milton Bunker the foremost researcher. Bunker claimed that he had personally discovered over traits reflected in handwriting. From about untilhe allegedly empirically tested and verified each sign at least a thousand times before considering it valid. In contrast to the French method which analyzed individual letter forms, the German system stressed the importance of the writing movement itself.
Eventually, Klages became so influential that he no longer allowed any graphology system but his own to exist in Germany. In reality, both graphology schools are not nearly as incompatible as the proponents of each school like to believe.
A thoroughly knowledgeable graphologist can use either method and arrive at the same results, albeit travelling on different paths. The Master course is not alone in utilizing the above indicators. They are incorporated to a greater or lesser degree in other contemporary graphological schools.
The Master course, however, is the only course that combines both of these fundamental theories in one logical system. KAROHS Courses differ greatly from other handwriting analysis courses in that they are not simply compilations of the French or the German graphology school; instead, they also incorporate pioneering research by other remarkable graphologists, including some whose invaluable discoveries were little recognized, denigrated, or practically forgotten.
During more than 40 trips to Europe, including to countries behind the Iron curtain, Dr. Karohs collected research material, both in and out of print some of it handwritten from personal estates. Karohs is proud to say that she possess graphology manuscripts that are not available anywhere else. Two German graphologists whose work she became particularly absorbed with were Magdalene Ivanovic and Otto Junge. Because of the strong influence of Ludwig Klages and the unfortunate developments taking place during the Nazi regime in Germany both were, despite their groundbreaking work, little recognized, even shunned.
Ivanovic had an unequaled perception of uncommon graphic indicators. Disconnected writing, according to Michon, is a sign of intuition. Ivanovic discovered various forms of single and double curves, expanded curves, straight and diagonal strokes, and acute, right and obtuse angles.
She also validated many other traits that are unknown to the majority of graphologists. Ivanovic recorded her findings in several books. His method was based on the assumption that in every individual there exist sets of opposing characteristics a and b. The characteristic scoring the highest was deemed the significant one.
His system is a fascinating one that gives deep insight into the personality. The anticipated recognition, however, never came. They are clearly identified as to their source.
Which graphology course should you choose? This is vraphology question that I am being asked most frequently by prospective students. The answer is very simple. If you want to become a thoroughly trained, knowledgeable professional graphologist I recommend starting with the Comprehensive Course of Handwriting Analysis.
Most of our graduates plan to become involved in some kind of personnel work upon graduation. Successful completion of the Comprehensive Course provides them with all the tools and in-depth knowledge needed to work as a professional analysts. It enables him and to perform analysis with absolute confidence. Then, if you want to further your graphological education beyond this point, I recommend the Master gdaphology.
The Master Course gedtalt unique in that it combines components of the trait stroke method with the Gestalt approach. Also, instead of looking at one handwriting indicator as standing for one personality trait, the Master method considers or evaluates ten handwriting components per personality trait. This results in an unbelievably accurate personality picture. Understandably, examining several handwriting indicators per trait takes longer than the pure trait stroke approach.
On the other hand, this method allows the analyst to glean information about the personality that is not available by any other means. On a practical level, the trait stroke method is usually grxphology for personnel work, such as analyzing candidates for hiring. It provides all the necessary insight for grapholoy and informative vocational and individual reports. The Master gsetalt is ideal for analyzing candidates for top management positions, or real problem personalities, or cases where the greatest in-depth information about a writer is desired.
Both the Comprehensive course and the Master course can be started without prior knowledge in graphology.
However, it is advisable to start with the Comprehensive Course. Many of the components taught in the Comprehensive course also appear in the Master course. It makes for an easier and smoother transition to gestzlt with the Comprehensive Course. Students who desire an even smoother transition now have the opportunity to enroll in the newly published Intermediate Course of Handwriting Analysis.
The Evaluated Traits course is a one-of-a-kind advanced trait stroke course that, at this time, in this format, students cannot find anywhere else. It is intended for students who want to progress beyond the Comprehensive Course but also want to stay entirely with the trait stroke method.
We know that you have many choices among so-called handwriting analysis schools and teachers.
For that reason, we caution you to do your research very carefully. Graaphology someone promises you that you can learn handwriting analysis in ten minutes a day, it is time to look elsewhere.
Our study material is steadily upgraded in keeping with ongoing research. Our generous and prompt support is unmatched by any other handwriting analysis school.
