Traditional Body Language
The way someone shakes your hand and looks you in the eye, communicates to you how that person feels about themselves. Interpreting what the person is communicating to you with their physical actions is known as "reading their body language."
Basically, what's going on in someone's head (their feelings, attitude and ways of thinking) are expressed through their behaviors and physical actions. For example, you can spot an arrogant person by simply looking at the way they stand or chew their gum; sometimes it's just a feeling.
"He gives me the creeps."
It's happens so automaticly that people often express their feelings through their body language without being aware they are doing it. The expression, "I can read her like a book," is an indication that her body language might be more reliable than her words.
So what is Written Body Language?
Handwriting is just another form of body language. Originating from the instinctive part of the brain, just like regular body language, it also reveals a person's feelings and automatic thoughts normally hidden away from their conscious mind. But unlike other forms of body language, handwriting permanently records the individual's personality traits in the ink on the paper.
After 10 years of research and testing, Written Inc. discovered that traditional handwriting analysis was too simplistic when examining the relationship between characteristics and traits. The one-to-one relationship that's often used - for example crossing a "t" this way means "x" - resulted in ambiguous and inaccurate results. We found that a person's handwriting, or as we call it Written Body Language, is actually far more complex and requires technology to handle the complex relationships between traits and characteristics.
Written Inc. created a sophisticated relational database to handle the complexity of written body language. Our Written Body Language Analysis Engine is the first significant improvement to the 150-year-old science of handwriting analysis. We have over a 95% accuracy rate; based on interviews with family, coworkers and friends.
