Handwriting Analysis, aka Graphology (coined by Jean Hyppolyte Michon in 1875) can be traced back as far as 2000 BC. A signature to the soul; each word, graphic movement, stroke, baseline and letter depicts something about the writer's personality.
"I love compatibility issues! We are all unique," observes Mary Ann Matthews, a certified handwriting analyst since 1994. "We have different modalities of who we are, who we think we are, and how we are perceived." Self-awareness, Mary Ann tells us, is the number one reason a person wants their handwriting analyzed. For personality conflicts, Graphology can give insight as to why you may not get along with certain individuals.
Twin Flame, a regular viewer and friend of the Ask Your Angels Talk Show, sent his/her signature for Mary Ann to examin.
"This person is very thoughtful in terms of thinking style. This is an interesting point of view; a compatibility issue I enjoy. Some people are very methodical thinkers. They take in information, a piece at a time, always going for accuracy. They're not the first person to come to a conclusion, but when they do, they have all the facts and are accurate. Here's a perception, they'll say, 'Leave it with me. I need to think about this for a moment.' People will say, 'Come on, make up your mind.' Yet they're going for accuracy. They're the ones who, when asked the time, will tell you how to build the watch. It's a great, great partnership, but they'll drive each other crazy. One needs to speed things up; one processes very quickly. The other is going to be very thorough."
"People with a very large middle zone are often times accused of having eyes in the back of their head. They take in everything going on around them. Those that are very small have a good ability to focus. Sometimes they can't see the forest for the trees. You can see where there could be a compatibility issue, if for example you had somebody with large writing sitting across the table from somebody with very small writing. The person with large writing; taking everything in, was probably asked as a child, 'Can't you pay attention for two seconds? Your eyes are darting everywhere!' So they learn this laser-like eye contact. They're constantly looking all over, being distracted. The person who writes very small thinks, 'You're disrespecting me. You're not even looking at me when I talk to you.' They're from two different worlds."
"None of us write dead straight in that middle zone," surmises Mary Ann, going back to the signature at hand. "This has a lot of 'up' and 'down'; different sizes and shapes of the middle zone. It has a forward right-hand slant. People often say, 'You must be right-handed because that's a right slant; you must be left-handed; that's a left-hand slant.' This is not so. The slant signifies how we respond emotionally to external stimuli. This person is going to react quite strongly, very emotional, quite spontaneous, perhaps impulsive at times. I'm not talking so much about the external. Sometimes they keep a real poker face, but inside they're reacting, and it's reflected in their writing."
Purusing many handwriting styles throughout the evening, it's evident Mary Ann Matthews knows her stuff! This self-affirming experience, felt by many of our participating viewers, rates one of our most favourite shows to date! With amazing insight and accuracy, Mary Ann will continue to captivate all who seek a new understanding of themselves, and those they hold dear.
Mary Ann will return, to delight and enthral; as she once again proves, "your scrawl tells all!"
