the British Institute of Graphologists


Winter Meeting

NOTE:  The next meeting of the British Institute of Graphologists will still go ahead via a Zoom presentation on 21 November 2020 (see more details below).  We believe this will be a fantastic opportunity to allow members to join from all over the world. 


11:00 – 12:30: Narcissism - John Beck - "A socially very unpleasant psychological condition, that often hides behind a pleasing exterior". Narcissism is a psychological state that is greatly under-reported in today's world, but is seen in all sections of the community. Its common interpretation of ‘self-love’ falls way short of the mark – it is a very unpleasant and often toxic condition.  Very little about this is written up in Graphology textbooks, yet it is vital for graphologists to be aware of this condition, and to be able to recognize it. This lecture will attempt to throw light on this disagreeable psychological condition, so often seen with people occupying positions of power or influence.  There will be opportunity for some Q&A during the talk via the inbuilt chat feature.

12:30 – 13:00           AGM
