My late mother was into graphology & I've just started studying the subject.

Given the amount of detail about a persons character that can be gleaned from Graphology I wonder if anyone uses it to any extent in perhaps a cold reading situation? Although a complete character analysis requires detailed study of the written word it is possible to instantly recognise traits from just a signature.

Thoughts?

I strongly second that recommendation! Julian Moore's book is fantastic (as are the others he has written). This is an excellent place to start your studies!

However, I don't think that link will be of help, since I'm not sure the books are on lybrary.com (I didn't see it when I clicked it). You might try going to the source:

I was into Graphology (Handwriting Analysis/Grapho-Analysis for those who know the difference) before I was into mentalism and have gone through phases of being more or less into it. On the whole I love it.

"Speed Learning Graphology" is a wonderful way to learn basic graphology, but it's also useful if you already know graphology and want to do short readings because it gives a consistent order of traits to look for for a quick but satisfying reading. For myself, when doing a short reading, I was always at a bit of a loss as to what to talk about; I would just jump back and forth talking about whatever trait I noticed or thought of. I really recommend the book.

Graphology may also be used on the stage, such as in psi-grafico. John Riggs also has a great piece called the "T-party," which isn't a routine so much as a mini-talk on graphology that could easily be incorporated into a larger talk.

I have been making good money with Black Hart's graphology system for several years now at trade shows and corporate gigs.

Sets fast and plays extremely well if you already know how to do a decent reading. Show up in a suit and tie and rock n roll!

Is the Blackhart system easy to learn, and is there much memory work involved, its quite pricey to just jump in without seeing a few reviews.

The system is very easy to learn as it involves working thru a tick sheet that the guest takes away with them. Once you have a basic understanding of the system all of the answers are right in front of you, you just need to be able to talk thru them in an intersting and convincing way (hence my comment about being able to give a decent reading). Part of what you are paying for is that Keith sends you the complete table kit with all the little accessories for your presentation, including a nice carrying bag for the whole thing. All you need to do is print off how ever many tick sheets you will need for each gig, with your advertising and maybe the advertising of whoever hired you if you like. Carry some extra pens too as these tend to disappear, and you might want a nice stand up display for the signage provided. I have booked this into many trade shows and places where a 'reader' would likely not be hired as it comes across as very 'scientific' and professional. It is really a whole act in a bag.

Thanks for the mention guys

I have no idea why I am linked to lybrary or why anyone would think I was - my stuff is only available on my own site or from the usual amazon etc

By the way, I also have Julian's course in addition to the Black Hart kit, and it is an excellent piece with lots of great knowledge detail about how to perform graphology. A really good investment if you are interested in this subject!

I didn't link to lybrary, linked to imentalsim which used to sell your material. I have no idea why clicking on imentalism leads to library. probably a deal they have together and a redirect...


I didn't even realise imentalism didn't exist anymore...

Sorry for confusion...

I have quite a few of Julian Moore's releases and what I like about each is the way all is set out and explained so clearly and in stages. His graphology book is especially good and I have used the method he suggests on quite a few occasions. It works.

Another recommendation and a favourite of mine is Draw Me a Tree by Rudy T Hunter.

Thanks for the video, very helpful. My main reason for wanting to learn the system is as I do my comedy magic act in Hotels the recent move to all inclusive venues has seen a drop off in bookings. I was thinking of just sitting in the reception area with some sort of advertising and charge a small fee for an analysis.
My thinking is that as no-one is doing this it could be a good earner, because of the all inclusive situation all the acts are dropping their prices and competing for the same venues, maybe this is a way round it. Any suggestions welcome.

Hey Russell, If your still reading this then for analyzing someone's signature...
As NeilS has already pointed out Rudy T Hunters: DRAW ME A TREE! Is probably the way to go. An excellent DVD which covers how to analyze trees AS WELL AS signatures.

http://www.lybrary.com/picometry-p-41752.html is another great resource that touches on signature analyze whilst achieving the greater goal of giving readings based on how people draw a picture with a HOUSE, TREE AND SUN.

and my own Doodleology from the lybrary or my signature is another great one for analysing drawings and doodles.

and I wasn't familiar with the Blackhart system, sounds like an interesting bundle, which looks like it would also give you lots of great thoughts on taking graphology to the festivals, fairs etc with great success. Julian's system whilst easy to learn and apply focuses more on analyzing how a person writes to specific words and has a ticksheet.

Get 'em all Smile

Remember there's a load of free resources on graphology only a google search away too.

Hi Russell,
I created "7 steps to graphology" for just that purpose.

I had a few questions after downloading the book speed learning graphology, so I emailed bevbevvybev and must say that the response I have had was nothing short of fantastic. All my questions were answered and alwat almost instantly. I just wanted to post this here so that Café members would know that here is someone who takes his buissiness serously, I am looking forward to doing buissiness whith him again, highly recommended.
