Signature for Success: How to Analyze Handwriting and Improve Your Career, Your Relationships, and Your Life

Overview

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.

Overview

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 and the styles of those around them.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this entertaining and often informative guide to handwriting analysis, Imberman, a graphologist and executive coach, and coauthor Rifkin (The Everything Online Shopping Book) share their insight into how handwriting can define character. The authors trace the long history of graphology and point out that the Greek philosopher Aristotle was among the first to study the link between people and their handwriting. Imberman strongly believes that graphology is an excellent human resources tool, claiming that a professional graphologist can identify team players as well as movers and shakers in a company through their handwriting samples. Drawing on the theory of personality types developed by Carl Jung, the authors divide writers into six types (borrowing from the Myers-Briggs analysis): extrovert, introvert, sensing, intuitive, thinking and feeling. Numerous samples penned by famous people demonstrate how various aspects of script-including, size, legibility, use of margins and slant-reveal their personalities. Barbara Walters writes in a structured manner, showing her to be an organized thinker; Bill Clinton's expansive script is that of a true extrovert. The authors make a strong case for graphology as a way to determine compatibility by analyzing public figures: they use the handwriting of married artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera to show that they were mismatched from the outset. According to the authors, Paul Newman's and Joanne Woodward's handwriting also explains why they have had such a long, successful marriage. (Nov.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Discover the Joy & Excitement of Handwriting Analysis

    SIGNATURE FOR SUCCESS conveys a whole new level of passion and excitement for handwriting analysis by showing samples from famous people in the most interesting ways. For example, samples of celebrity handwriting are included in sections where readers are asked to choose which person they'd select for job applicants, friends, and lovers... and are then let in on the secret about which famous people those handwriting samples really belong to. Arlyn also shares some real-life samples of handwriting she's received, along with her answers to readers' questions based on her analysis of each handwriting sample. A wide variety of personality traits are described and displayed that show up in handwriting, including qualities like: introvert/extrovert, honesty/dishonesty, patience/ impatience, easy-going/angry. Once you've learned the basics about how to spot warning signs in handwriting, it's amazingly simple to find out a great deal of information. SIGNATURE FOR SUCCESS is an inspirational gem that is fun to read on many levels: pure entertainment, thought- provoking insights, and self-improvement. I give this book my highest recommendation!

    Very Impressed by this Awesome Book on Handwriting Analysis

    I couldn't put Signature for Success Down. It's easy and fun to read. I loved the analysis of the samle handwritings and have spent many an hour scrutinizing my own writing to see if I am falling into the same patterns for my love life and work life. I loved this book. We need more like it.
