Graphological analysis of the letters f and h


• When the top stroke extends over the whole word, it shows a feeling of protection. This is a masculine quality, but it is found in many women, especially those bringing up children alone.

• Simplified strokes show the writer's urge to speed and a lack of adornment in his personal life-style.

• When the letter contains a knot, it reveals toughness

• Consider the 'f' written as a triangular shape with the end stroke horizontal. Angles, as we know, show hardness, and there are three of them here, all in the lower zone. This hints at a strong resistance to interference absolutely any interference whatsoever. It is probably caused by sexual frustration.


• Picture the downstroke (of the 'h') extending under the body of the letter and to the left. This person, because of his stubborn nature, would rather fight than compromise. The stubbornness is demonstrated by the long downstroke, as though he were clouting someone. The fact that he would prefer to fight for his position is shown by the leftward tendency. Not only does he not end the letter with a rightward finishing stroke (which is normal and shows a good relationship to the other person), but he goes the opposite way, leftward. This declares defiantly that he is withdrawing his social attentions from the other person.

Note: If an individual's handwriting tends toward a specific direction in one particular zone, it indicates a strong meaning. This very writing is such an example. This letter shows a vertical writing in general, but a lower zone with a distinct tendency toward the left-reclined writing. This shows that, although the writer maintains a more or less stable posture in his intellectual and everyday life, in matters of sex or money or materialistic pleasures, he effects a certain withdrawal.

• Imagine a vulgar-looking and ornate letter ('H') that has a vertical line added in unnecessarily between the left and right parts. Obviously this writer

• displays an undue claim of self-importance. Adolf Hitler wrote this way. (Many graphologists believe that the vertical line accentuated his mustache.)

• Consider the upper zone that hardly exists at all. Hence, this writer does not believe in spiritual ideals.

• When the upper zone is large-say three to four times the size of the middle zone, we see an idealistic, spiritual, and often religious individual.

• Picture no end stroke to the letter. Since the end stroke represents the relationship to one's fellowman, we see meanness here.
