Comments on: How To Tell If Your Date Is a Potential Train Wreck Geek Culture & Tech Expert: How Can I Help You Today? Wed, 25 Nov 2015 01:28:28 +0000 hourly 1 By: Gordie Thu, 11 Dec 2008 22:19:43 +0000 Chris —

Too simple and too focused on the American-trained graphologists’ “I Got’cha” analysis; e.g., based on finding fault as opposed to finding the B-A-L-A-N-C-E in everyone’s personality. And what if the ‘handwriting’ being examined is ALL printed or a print-script mixture with no cursive — what is your recommendation then?

Amber makes a good point about there not being enough conclusive evidence; however, an analysis by a European-trained graphologist would probably set her opinion back on her fanny, smartly. Amber — here’s a challenge — submit a full page of your handwriting to a European-trained graphologist. There’s some great analysts in Israel, Italy, England, France, etc.

While I can respect that handwriting might in general reveal clues about someone, I wouldn’t say handwriting analysis is the end-all-be-all of determining how that person is going to act in a relationship. There’s just not enough conclusive evidence that this is as accurate as it is made to sound. That’s like putting all your opinion of someone on something like their sun sign, or how their palm lines read. There’s a reason why those little handwriting analysis books are in the 89 cent book section in the checkout lane along with astrology, numerology, palm reading, etc.
Heh, plus I can just see how someone might think YOU are a trainwreck of a date if you act all paranoid at the beginning and are looking through their stuff for a handwriting sample.
I’d certainly decide someone that acted like that was not someone I could date.

Anyway, I’m assuming you meant this to be a bit humorous and not entirely “scripture” as it were for determining if someone is going to be a trainwreck or not. Really the only thing you can do is try to get to know the person and hope that they are not sociopathic or a really good liar.
