Leow Chee Seng, Ph.D
Have you had experience of fixing things in your house? You might have experience fixing a light bulb or paint a wall. In order to perform these tasks, you need a tool box. The right tool enables us to fix the problem effectively.
Behaviour Modification is like fixing a defect gadget in our house. Using the right tools help to boost up the process of Behavioural Modification.
It seems ridiculous to fix a person personality and psychological problem with handwriting. I learned handwriting analysis and it becomes one of my tools like a screw driver to fix human psyche. When meeting new friends, I love to observe their handwriting. As short as 30 seconds, I am able to identify what they scared of, how emotional he is and his strength and weakness. In fact, I based on the science of handwriting analysis to read their personality.
However, if I wanted to help this person to stop anger or overcome phobia, I do not only use handwriting analysis as behavioural modification but I apply cognitive behaviour therapy together with handwriting analysis.
Here is the brief description of some tools that I used when applying behaviour modification with handwriting analysis. The handwriting behaviour modification must be started with goal setting. Candidate needs to identify what to be achieved and set a realistic target when to reach the target behaviour.
After setting the goal, candidate needs to change their belief system and elicit values in their life. Changing belief system is important because creating new belief could empower you to be the person you choose to be and eliciting values help you to discover what emotion is the most important to you, what you value most in life. By understanding these basic elements, you can start your handwriting analysis.
Handwriting analysis is the science of determining personality and characteristic from our handwriting. By understand our own handwriting; we would be able to identify our own strength and weaknesses within us.
Behaviour Modification through handwriting – Grapho Therapy. Grapho therapy can be done by changing your handwriting to change your behaviours. The following are some of the negative personality handwriting that needs to be changed to enhance your quality of life.
Shown when the lower loops of y’ s, g’ s, and sometimes j ‘s are retraced completely. The anti-social person does not trust anyone and rarely lets people get close enough to really know him. He fears getting hurt emotionally. This is a roadblock to intimacy. In addition, it is difficult to enter his heart because he tends to put a huge block to enable you to understand him.
Shown by the breakaway p with a high beginning stroke. This person likes to argue. The trait will be increased if the writer is also analytical, irritated, sarcastic, stubborn, and/or impulsive. When dealing with this person, he would always focus on the negative attitude that we have. They would try to discourage us and focus on the negative perspective.
Down-slanted t-bar, to the right, with a sharp ending. The dominant person tends to fight for control. He takes charge, insisting people follow him. The sharp t-bar signifies sarcasm, whining, griping, and possible cruelness when he doesn’t get his way. Sometimes, it is difficult to deal with the person because he always want to be the leader and people around him would feel pressure when dealing with him. An unpleasant trait.
Shown by an obvious slant variation from left to right in the same sentence. This person has trouble making decisions because the head and heart are in conflict. He withdraws into the introverted personality when he feels insecure. Emotional unbalanced influence the person personality. Unpredictable mood swings.
Shown by a consistent leftward slant. The upstrokes and slant are a minimum of 90 degrees from the baseline. An introvert. This person keeps his own counsel, rarely expresses feelings, and makes logical unemotional decisions. Sometimes, the person tend to do something emotionally and regret after this. If this negative traits can be eliminated, the person could be a better person.
The hard rightward slant reveals the heart-ruled, moody, impulsive person. The farther the writing slants to the right, the more this person is subject to emotional stimuli. This writer naturally relates to people emotions and has a constant need for affection. He can be very expressive with his emotions and relates to others easily. Over expressive sometimes let people feel we are acting. A balance emotion helps us to deal with others in a more efficient perspective.
A tight beginning loop that is small and almost square. It must make completely closed circle. This person fears the loss of someone he loves can be very possessive. The person could encounter mood swing due to small inner feeling. However, it creates emotional disturbed for the people next to them.
Shown by the t-bar crossed very low on the stem. This person fears failure and fears change, thus sets goals with low risk. He remains in bad situations much too long and finds imperfections with himself. He is rarely successful in his own eyes. Low self-esteem lead to low confident level of a person.
Shown by a combination of loops in the right and left side of lower case a’s and o’s. Huge inner loop, that cross signify a person that lies pathologically. These people are not trustworthy. However, we cannot judge a person just a simple letter. A more comprehensive observation should be conducted to understand a person personality.
Lower loops that are incomplete. This signifies the presence of frustration in areas such as relationships, exercise, or sexual activity. Something is incomplete in this person’s life.
A t-bar that is crossed predominately on the left side of the stem. Procrastinators will put off until tomorrow what could have been done today. This trait is one factor of laziness. Low motivation are the main reason for procrastination. Positive and negative reinforcement can be used to eliminate this negative personality. At the same time, peers support is very important to motivate them.
Revealed by sharp-pointed t-bar. Sarcasm is like a verbal dagger defending the ego. Sarcasm is forming a dual meaning to whatever is said and is often mixed with humor. Sarcastic people have a sharp tongue that can hurt others’ feelings. If the t-bar is crossed from right to left, the sarcasm is directed toward self, instead of toward others, creating a tendency to be self-critical. If the self-critics are too extreme, it is advisable to consult a counsellor.
Revealed by t and d- stems shaped like a tepee or upside down “V”. The more this letter is braced, the more this person is braced to his own ideas. Stubborn people rarely admit they are wrong, and don’t want to be confused with the facts after they have made up their minds. They could stick to their own opinion without accepting other people’s view.
Wedge-shapa “m’s” and “n’s” that do not penetrate the upper zone. This person is a quick thinker. He tends to depend on other people’s views rather than on personal investigation. He often makes decisions based on other’s opinions. A more critical thinking is needed so that the person would not jump into the conclusion.
Open circle letters such as a’s and o’s. The less connected the upper part of these letters are, the more they must move their mouth. Sometimes they will talk just to hear their own voice. Giving opinion is good but sometimes, it is good to control our own speech so that it would not irritates others. Moderation is the key principle in all conversation.
By identifying the negative traits within ourselves, we should admit our weaknesses. Then, we shall change and set our new goals to eliminate our negative traits by changing our handwriting slowly. When changing our handwriting, it was a way to set neuro programming to remind us to dispute negative beliefs that could form our behaviour. With the repetition, new positive traits would be programmed within us and finally it becomes a habit for us to success in our life. Good Luck!
