How to analyze signatures

Ever wonder what signatures—yours, your boss’s, your clients’—reveal about personality? In this course, you will learn to read handwriting, using principles developed by European clinicians. See how people inadvertently embed talents, interests, and even unique aspects of personality in their handwriting, giving you a way to better understand them. The lessons will teach you how to read what people are really telling you about themselves when they sign on that dotted line. We’ll also analyze signatures of presidents, writers, actresses, and other interesting personalities.
