What is graphology?
Graphology is a science, which claims to tell about your personality, your psyche by analyzing your handwriting.
Science you say? Seems like bullshit to me.
Graphology is an empirical science. We see the samples of thousands of people and only if we find a recurring pattern we make a deduction. If the handwriting of 95% of extroverts has a rightward slant and 90% of introverts have a leftward, and then I say that if you have a rightward slant you are a extrovert, I probably am right.
(BTW, its not that simple, many more things should be seen before we make such a claim).
What do I get after learning this?
Ah, though you may get a job as a graphologist if you are really good, its slightly difficult. But if you know graphology you will be star of a party, can impress people. Make decisions about other people. I basically learnt it to have a nice hobby.
How long will it take?
A month if you put in an hour a day. This will make you reasonably competent to analyze other people. But to become a pro, it probably will take much longer.
