Signatures and handwriting reveal more than we think or even intend. While many perceive Bill Gates as arrogant, his handwriting shows him to be determined, self-confident, and impatient, expecting others to live up to his standards. And while Barbara Walters comes across as outgoing, the slant of her handwriting indicates she compensates for her basic shyness with strong personal discipline.According to author and noted graphologist Arlyn Imberman, "The saying "Mind your P"s and Q"s" has a far different meaning to a professional graphologist than it might to the rest of us. . . . Just a few lines can form a very clear picture of the writer"s personality, strengths, and weaknesses."In Signature for Success, Imberman shares analysis techniques for readers to better understand themselves, coworkers, and their family and thus create, improve, and understand their relationships.The way people form letters, the size of their script, the pressure they put on the page, the speed of their writing, the space between their words, their fluidity, legibility, stroke, and slant"all are key to their inner workings. Imberman shares the intriguing tricks of the trade: the six personality types of handwriting; how to get and read a handwriting sample; how to improve compatibility in romantic, business, and family relationships; how to recognize the "dark side"; and how to make better choices when hiring daycare workers, doctors, housekeepers, and so on. Signature for Success also includes handwriting samples and assessment of the famous, infamous, and everyday people. Readers will be able to practice handwriting analysis themselves and will learn to better understand their own handwriting styles andthe styles of those around them.
