Ego and self-concept as seen in handwriting

Ego and self-concept as seen in handwriting

The English language has the unique characteristic of a single letter “I” (ppI) which represents the writer’s ego.

Words are symbols with which we communicate. Shape is also a language – think of a tall majestic redwood contrasted with a slender willow. Or the shape of a hound, suggesting speed, contrasted with the weight of a bulldog, suggesting strength and tenacity. Our body has a language besides words or form. The way we walk, sit, gesture is the body language that reflects our inner state.

Like body language, our strokes are forms in action. Writing is crystallized body language. We are symbol-producing beings, and by analyzing our symbols we gain access to our unconscious.

For ppI to be correctly interpreted, it it must be considered in the context of writing as a whole. Strictly speaking, it cannot be evaluated alone; like the self, the ego symbol exists and finds its identity in its relation to its environment. Nevertheless, ppI can offer valuable clues to the inner personality even without such a comparison, since the basic graphological values ​​and indicators contained in the symbolism of zones and space can be reliably applied.

How the ppI is written and where it is placed on the paper reveals the writer’s intimate relationship with himself and others. The signature – the public image – does not reveal the truth about a person, as ZI does.

How your form your ppI can offer you a useful tool for assessing your personal needs and values. In revealing aspects of the inner self, it has a personal meaning beyond the simple fact that it designates the writer. It can also suggest harmonious or disruptive elements in one’s life. It can reveal the importance of male and female authority figures to the writer and how his relationship with these figures affects his current relationship.

Mind and body are not independent units or entities: expressive movements are embedded in the whole personality complex. Handwriting is such a personal gesture that imitation or forgery is difficult to do, and the speed and pressure of writing cannot be duplicated. Writing by hand is writing by the brain.

The shape or form of the ppI provides information about the writer’s adaptability to the world, his orientations toward the future or the past, his interest in the spiritual, material, or reality.

The height of the ppI tells about the feelings of the writer, his degree of self-confidence and the respect he has for himself and his abilities.

The breadth of ppI refers to the writer’s personal value system. It reveals his sense of self-worth and the importance he places on himself in relation to other people in his workplace and interpersonal relationships.

Any weakness in the form of ppI corresponds to a deficit in the writer’s self-confidence. The findings in ppI should be confirmed by evidence from the height and width of the letters. If there is a discrepancy between the height of the letter and the height of the ppI, or between the width of the letter and the width of the ppI, there is a personality conflict with consequent frustration, tension or anxiety. Physically, it creates nervousness in behavior; it will be expressed as hostility, resistance or rigidity.

Clues to social and emotional inclinations are found in the slant of ppI as well as in other letters.
