(Instructions for Using Graphology Charts)

Samples of handwriting characteristics are given on the charts, and beside them, in type, a very brief analysis of what that particular characteristic means in the make-up of a human being.

After your client has written a sentence or two, scan it for factors given in the chart, as follows:

How he has spaced his bit of writing on the paper as shown in the seven examples given,

»•That kind of spacing he has given words and lines, per examples.

Levelness of writing, whether even or up or down hill.

Size of writing

Slant of writing, if any

Whether slow and rounded, heavy and bold; light, rapid

Note ways in which the M, N and U are written, per examples

Check spacing of letters, par examples, whether wide spaced, crowded tightly, etc.

Examples are given of the various ways in which the letter :'T" and 'i' are crossed and dotted, and these should be noted in the writing sample.

Note how words are begun and ended, per the examples also if the writing tapers to smallness, or to largeness, per the examples.

The way in which capital letters are made is significant and several examples are given.

Some writing has peculiarities such as the little "hooks" at the beginning or end of a word, or the way letters are written with loose "knots", or with closed or open tops to the "o:!, etc. See examples given.

Examples are devoted to upward loops or downward loops and their meanings; watch for these in your sample writing.

As you check over each of the above, note with a small check on the chart the characteristics each variation in the writing seems to indicate, taking such characteristics from the printed lines beside the writing examples.

When you are finished with such checking, you will have a small group of facts about the person, and from these you draw your analysis, which you write in the spot provided on the chart. Chart is then signed by you and given to the person.

If you have time, and especially when reading the handwriting of only one individual, privately, you will find person much intrigued if you give a more complete reading than the brief-one possible on the chart. The following pages give you-material for such readings in a general way. Following these rules, and using your own imagination and common sense, you can develop a very fluent ability at giving readings, based to start with on the handwriting analysis, but ending as an inspiration and "lift" to the person for whom you are "reading".

There are several things to keep in mind when giving a reading, whether based on graphology, palmistry, cards, astrology, or just cold readings.

First, the person with whom you' are working has one interest in mind — and that is himself. Otherwise, he or she would not be there at all. Secondly, the chances are that he is not at a highly successful and triumphant peak of his life at the moment he is talking to you, because people, at such times, never seek or think they need help.

The person who is in the mood for such analysis is much more likely to have something on his mind; to want to improve his position in life, or he may be in serious trouble.

You therefore must concentrate entirely upon him, as a subject, and your reading must be always optimistic,, always suggestive of the best or better things. Never critical, always helpful, always confidert.

Human problems occur by the million, but fall into only a few categories and can be generalized into even fewer - mainly love, money and health. Therefore, what you say to one. person can be used just as aptly to many others. Your cue is to keep conversing freely and with confidence and knowledge. For this you require a framework of phrases which fit many cases.

We have furnished you herewith several lists of such phrases which you will do well to learn and use frequently. Key words in the' phrases can be linked with key words on the Graphology Chart, so that you can expand the brief readings given after each example.

The "Very Personal" remarks will give you a.starting phrase which you can fill out with what knowledge yoj. have- gained of the per?.on thru the Chart. Those under ''Love ana Marriage" apply to ever}' girl and boy and man and woman you will ever talk to, because people are cither married or want to be. If married, they are either happy or unhappy and the remarks are just as apt.

Relative to money, you will find lists of "Favorable Employment". From this, based on the characteristics of the person you have discovered from the Chart, you can suggest types of employment he should be in. If he seems to be perfectly happy in a type of work entirely foreign to the indications of the Chart, this is because he has overcome certain difficulties. But he must be alert that they do not arise later in connection with his work.

If he lacks money, or is not happy with his job, he might seek the kind of work suggested by the characteristics in his own writing.

You can tie up the types of jobs with the analysis by considering what qualities each job would require if a person is to do well with it. The sociable, friendly, open type of character who makes- a good salesman would not do well in a confining job where he worked all alone, with no outside contacts.
