Welcome to the Insyte Handwriting Analysis Course

Welcome to the Insyte Handwriting Analysis Course Graphology is the Study of Handwriting. As you are

Graphology is the Study of Handwriting. As you are studying Handwriting, you are on your way to becoming a graphologist.

A Handwriting Analyst is one who is skilled at making determinations about the character from the writing. And, that is what you will learn and practice in this course.

Introduction will detail the basics about this course, to Ethics, to Collecting Samples, and more.

It is our hope that you will enjoy the “Voyage of Discovery” that you are about to undertake through the Insyte Challenge Course.

With your new found knowledge you will be better prepared to deal with many different personalities that you encounter in your daily activities. You will have more wisdom regarding what motivates you to act and react as you do.

You will learn that personality characteristics are neither good nor bad, but range along a continuum: Assertiveness and Aggressiveness; Conformity and Rigidity are only a matter of degree. You will understand what motivates your Family, Friends, and Associates; and how to deal with them in a productive manner

Finally, and most importantly, you will discover many new facets of your own personality which will help you to better Understand and be more Compassionate toward yourself!

When you complete this course, you will earn a Diploma. You will become ready for certification testing.

This course was originally designed by the esteemed graphologist, Sr. June Canoles, now retired. It is the only course that combines both Gestalt and Trait Stroke methods of teaching Handwriting Analysis.

It is a thorough course. It will provide you with all training you need to become a professional graphologist.

Even as a student in training, there are a few things you must know and use in your everyday learning and practice. This

INSYTE CHALLENGE COURSE: INTRODUCTION

Ethics

Because a little knowledge is dangerous, we advise all students to understand there is a “code of ethics” that must be maintained.

Rule #1 Respect yourself and your skills:

We take graphology seriously. It is not a parlor game. There is no magic here. It is the serious study of human behavior and handwriting. You will put a lot of time and effort into your learning. Do not undermine it with a sideshow performance of quickie analysis.

If you were introduced to a Medical Doctor or Dentist, you would not open your mouth and ask him for an instant diagnosis. To do a thorough “reading” of handwriting will take some time, too. Simply tell your prospective client that you would love to sit with them at a more opportune time, and review their writing with them fully.

Part of your training will be to “practice.” While this feedback is great for you to understand if you are getting better at creating your analysis, we must caution that you:

Rule #2 While in training, simply tell people you are in training!

People will always be more likely to understand, and to correct you if you are wrong. This is a valuable part of training.

Rule #3 Do NOT reveal characteristics that are negative and unmodified.

Even if you were correct in observing from the writing that someone suffered from abuse, or is deceptive or

dishonest,

things that will not insult or humiliate your writer. You can

do so much damage to their sense of self if you are wrong (or if you are right and do not handle it properly).

Don’t make negative comments about specific indicators in the handwriting. Because specific indicators may be modified within the whole context, you should never point out that they cross their” t’s” and dot their i’s” oddly. It will only serve to make them self-conscious about their own writing, and unable to fix it.

Rule #4 Honesty.

Your integrity and honesty is everything. You can avoid difficult issues, but do not guess, and always stay honest. If you don’t know something, admit you don’t know.

there are much better ways of saying such

Rule #5 Unless you are a licensed doctor or psychologist, you should never make a diagnosis. Ever!

Just because you have a working familiarity with medical and psychological terms; or may see indicators in the handwriting, does not mean you are licensed to reveal them to anyone.

Your best

comment

would be:

It appears that you may need to get a check-up with a medical professional.

Knowledge is Power! Use it responsibly.
Knowledge is
Power!
Use it
responsibly.

To make a diagnosis is practicing medicine without a license,which is a federal offense.

And, it is a violation of these ethics for Insyte Challenge Course.

Most professional graphology associations format their

Code of Ethics

similar to American Psychological Association’s. For details, please see their websites:

American Handwriting Analysis Foundation (AHAFhandwriting.org)

American Association of Handwriting Analysts (AAHAhandwriting.com)

Association of Professional Graphologists (APSGhandwriting.org)

Start a Collection

Collecting Samples

Beginning right now, you will need to start collecting Handwriting Samples.

There is a correct way to provide usable samples for study and discussion. So, let’s review the information you will need to start your collection:

itself.

7. And, always indicate if the individual is under the influence of drugs (even prescription) or alcohol. And, if you can, note if the individual has any special health considerations or temporary issues. (i.e. diabetic, pregnant, uses crutches, recent accident, recent death in family, blind or wears trifocals, etc.)

8. Let your writer know you intend to keep this sample, to use for homework, and handwriting discussions.

Sorting and Storing Samples

1. Whenever possible, have your guests write a sample on unlined 8.5 x 11” paper, with a pen that they are comfortable with. However, any sample may be saved!

a. Letters

b. Christmas Cards

c. Thank You Notes

d. Reports and Receipts

e. Etc.

Its always best if you set up a system for keeping your samples from the very beginning.

You will need to maintain a “hard-copy” of the original. So a plastic envelope or file folder would be best to start. Some prefer to use sheet protectors and save them in binders. You decide how you want to store and organize them.

2. The text of the samples must be from original thought.

Prepared scripts or copying text, songs, etc., all have different, slower, calculated writings that will not reveal the true nature of the individual. Therefore, never accept text that is not an original communication. It will not help you to learn. Instead, you can ask them to tell you:

a. What they plan to do for dinner and why,

b. What is their favorite holiday and what they like to do to celebrate it

c. Where they would love to go on vacation and

You will want to SCAN them into your computer as well so we can discuss them online or you can submit that copy for your home work without damaging the original.

that copy for your home work without damaging the original. You may want to save those

You may want to save those files by category or traits so you can refer back to them later (ie Wide spacing F23R; or Many red flags M19L.)

why it appeals to them.

Both on your computer and in your physical storage, try to keep your samples accessible.

your physical storage, try to keep your samples accessible. 3. Your samples should be several lines

3. Your samples should be several lines long (a minimum of 7). Remember, the longer the writing sample, the better you will be able to learn from it.

4. If your subject wants to Print, that’s fine. If possible, also ask them for a paragraph of cursive script so you have both.

5. Get Signatures when you can, please ask them to sign their sample. We will be studying Signatures later, too!

6. Always make notations on the sample to include these three things:

a. Male/Female

b. Age

c. Which Hand they used to write.

ie: You can abbreviate M/43/R (male, age 43 Right-handed) F/26/L (or Female, age 26, Left-handed ) would be enough to identify the three major influences on handwriting that cannot be determined in the handwriting

INSYTE CHALLENGE COURSE: INTRODUCTION 5 Preparing for Graduation and Beyond Like any school, we will provide

Preparing for Graduation and Beyond

Like any school, we will provide assignments to help you experience the information in that lesson, and we will require work submitted for proof of learning. Each assignment will enable you to move onto the next phase of learning.

It’s a Challenge Course, so it will stretch your known concepts and thinking!

DIPLOMA

This course will provide you with a complete education in Handwriting Analysis. Upon graduation, you will earn a diploma and you will be able to create your own reports and have the knowledge needed to succeed.

If you want to take this one step further, this course will prepare you take the board certification test to any one of these independent professional organizations as listed below. We know that independent, peer-review, and board certification from a professional organization will mean so much more for your credentials.

Completion of this course will prepare you for all you need to successfully take the certification tests offered by any of these professional organizations:

* American Handwriting Analysis Foundation

* Association of Handwriting Analysts

* American Society of Professional Graphologists

Assignments:

At the end of each

lesson, click on the link to take the Homework Challenge. This will confirm what you have learned in the lesson, and will enable you to demonstrate to us the abilities you are to find the indicators in your own handwriting samples. Once done, we will send you the next lesson. We will be able to discuss your homework in the next online session.

All assignments are due within 2 weeks of issuing the lesson. If additional time is needed, simply ask for it. We are very understanding.

Many students can finish their lessons sooner, but it is not required that you do so. Sometimes, additional time and exposure to the concepts and the

samples will help you, as an analyst, to reach that

epiphany.

We will meet with you weekly. This is just to touch base with you to assist you to address any questions you may have.

Sometimes, we may have additional information to share that will help promote your learning, or to augment any concept we are discussing for that lesson.

The first 15 lessons will cover general principles and will combine the two most widely used approaches to graphology: Gestalt and Trait Stroke.

The remaining 5 final lessons will discuss some specific characteristics with which you should be familiar to use your new skills as a professional. Each advanced lesson will require an analysis or special assignment. These are designed to specifically enable you to use your skills in various practical areas.

This will help prepare you to use your abilities in business and in your own practice.

Any education should prepare you for knowing all there is to know, and we go that measure further to help you find which areas of graphology would suit you!

Mentoring

You will begin Online Lessons the very first week.

We meet online using Zoom.us video cloud meeting services. This secure, quality service provides the convenience and ability for us to share information on screen.

Our meetings will be approximately 30 minutes, depending on your questions and progress needs.

There will be information in the live, online face-to-face video meetings that is not found in your written course material.

These sessions are meant to augment the written lessons. Some materials may change over time, so they are not part of the written text.

And, then too, we want to be able to meet with you to share our own experiences with adapting the materials you read into practical use.

You are not alone in your learning. We have all been there, struggling to remember thousands of details and to understand how they all come together to produce a great analysis. It takes time.

And, remember the Lucky 7 principle (to the right). Reading alone will not allow most people to recall and apply all the details. First you read over the materials. Then you have to complete the assignments. It helps when you have to look for them in your own samples (assignments). And you will find you are able to retain this much better when you are able to hear and discuss them in our discussion sessions.

The Insyte CHALLENGE Course is indeed a challenge. It will challenge the way you look at yourself and others. It will introduce psychological concepts abut personality, character, and physical conditions as well as how they appear in the handwriting.

Learning anything new is a process. Traditionally, you need to see, hear, and experience things seven times before they become an ingrained part of your working memory. There is a lot to learn. Let us know when you need help with a process so that we can help you directly! You are not alone.

INSYTE CHALLENGE COURSE: INTRODUCTION 7 The “Insyte” Logo Story Well known graphologist and author of this

The “Insyte” Logo Story

Well known graphologist and author of this course, Sr. June Canoles, wrote the book on designing logo’s. Here is her graphological explanation of our copyrighted course name:

The name insight is spelled “Insyte” to separate handwriting analysis from counseling.

The initial meaning of Insyte is to determine the character and the personality of the individual. The secondary meaning is the unconditional support to each person’s inner journey.

The print is bold, and corporate looking because the target market is human resourcing.

The color black with a red accent represents strength of conviction and the energy to follow through even against the road blocks of society.

The slant is moderate, representing warmth with objectivity.

The small “i” illustrates the desire to keep a low profile and to stay small.

The red dot indicates fun. It is creating something out of nothing.

The “n” represents the thinking patterns that are both analytical and exploratory.

The “s” signifies the Yin and Yang approach.

The “y,” as a work letter, is cut short to depict the need to stop work and “smell the daisies.”

The “t-bar” is crossed high for goal setting. It is strong and long, depicting willpower and enthusiasm.

The “e” is open, indicating listening. It is shorter than the other letters to represent diplomacy.

The “Inc.” represents what the government receives.

The underlining of “Insyte Inc.” portrays self-reliance and self-confidence.
