Abstract

Modern studies and research conclude that graphology is directly related to a subject’s personality traits. Typographers use this connection to their advantage when creating typefaces. By collecting my own handwriting samples and analyzing them based on graphological research against a list of personality traits, my hope is to differentiate personality traits and personas. This will be done through a four part experiment which includes a self-ranking of personality traits, an in-depth handwriting & alphabet sample, a self-ranking of typefaces based on which are the most appealing to the subject, and lastly a control survey. If the hypothesis is supported by the data collected, all four parts will correlate with one another.
