No one is born with an innate ability to write. First, when at school we learn hard to steadily write letters on paper. Gradually this process becomes automatic. We think of WHAT to write almost never realizing HOW we do it. A person’s handwriting is closely related to her psychological and physical state. The letter forms, their height and inclination can say a lot about one’s character.
In the framework of the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy Inessa Goldberg, a Moscow graphologist, an expert from the School of Graphoanalytics, and Larisa Drygval, DSc (psychology), gave their master-class.
The famous graphologist explained how one’s handwriting can reveal one’s character. If a line is “crawling” upwards, letters are round and medium high, such person is kind and optimistic. Quite on the contrary, a person with tiny square penmanship inclined to the left is nervous and irritable.
“An important rule of prudence is an ability not to lose temper. Good self-control is evidence of a noble heart; it is difficult to lead a great soul astray. Learn to rule yourself so that nobody could accuse you of self-abandonment either in happiness or in misfortune, but would admire the strength of your spirit”. (Baltasar Gracian). Larissa Grygval focused on the influence of calligraphy on personal patience and balance.
