The next meeting of the British Institute of Graphologists will be on Saturday 14th June 2020 at The Soroptimist Club, 63 Bayswater Road, London, W2 3PH. Tel: 0207 723 8575

10:30:  Tea/ Coffee

11:00 – 12:30: The Big Five - Martin Hastings - Like other fields of personality assessment, graphologists struggle to describe personality in terms that are commonly agreed upon.  Out of the many personality trait frameworks, the one most commonly used is called 'The Big Five'.  In this interactive workshop, we will be exploring what this framework is, how it is measured, and if it is applicable to graphology.  Can personality factors such as Openness, Agreeableness, Extraversion, Conscientiousness and Neuroticism fit into how we analyse handwriting?  Could this be a personality framework that graphologists all over the world use in the future?

13:00 - 14:00:  Lunch

14:00 – 15:30: Signatures - their history, meaning and future - Adam Brand - Signatures are marks made by people to signify approval, acceptance, obligation or to confirm their presence.  Graphologists know a signature represents the public image, so they need the cursive writing before they can gain a full understanding of a person.  Yet sometimes only signature are available.  This talk looks at the history, meaning and possible future of signatures.

Attendance: £15 for the day for members, £20 for non-members.  Tea and coffee is provided.

Email: for enquiries or to book online, or alternatively just turn up on the day.
