Reading Between the Lines: decoding handwriting is the book that replaces The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Handwriting Analysis. After nearly eighteen years as a bestseller in the series, the Idiot’s Guide is out of print.
Have you ever wondered what the squiggles and strokes in a line of ink say about personality? Or are you a handwriting professional who learned the “trait-stroke” method? Reading Between the Lines, Decoding Handwriting, will introduce you to a new way to look at handwriting and understand personality. You will learn the gestalt method, which is like viewing an object through a telescope. You see the bigger picture. The better-known trait-stroke method is like viewing an object under a microscope and offers a small field of vision. One is not better than the other, they simply appeal to different thinking styles. Trait-stroke analysts are more comfortable with an atomistic step-by-step approach, building up a picture of personality one stroke at a time. Gestaltists are more conceptual thinkers who look at space, form, and movement, learning to recognize the whole personality at a glance.
Thus, right-brained thinkers who see the big picture are attracted to gestalt analysis. While left-brained thinkers start out more comfortable with trait-stroke analysis, once they learn to see the gestalt, though, they invariably report a better understanding of handwriting and personality.
