Validation of Handwriting Analysis

Our interdisciplinary research group is a non-formal association of researches working to improve the scientific background of handwriting analysis. Traditionally it is called graphology or handwriting psychology. The group includes psychologists, sociologists, graphologists and mathematicians. We have been working on several research projects dealing with validation of handwriting analysis as a scientific method.

Next to investigating the science of handwriting analysis with psychological research methods our major aims are as follows:

  • explore and verify the backgrounds of handwriting analysis
  • consider the changes of social developments and life conditions and adapt handwriting analysis accordingly
  • build interfaces to related methods in the field of personality analysis to achieve more reliable results
  • reconstruct the negative image of graphology in order to restore confidence and increase both scientist and general public awareness of handwriting analysis.
