the British Institute of Graphologists


Spring Meeting

The next meeting of the British Institute of Graphologists will be on Sunday 9th June 2019 at The Soroptimist Club, 63 Bayswater Road, London, W2 3PH. Tel: 0207 723 8575

10:30:  Tea/ Coffee

11:00 – 13:00: Introversion and Extroversion in handwriting, John Beck - The concepts of Introversion and Extroversion are close to the hearts of graphologists world wide, but these two factors turn out to be far more complicated than many would believe.  This lecture will show that the slant in handwriting is only one indicator of Introversion and Extroversion:  it seems we must factor in a number of other graphological features that appear in the writing, if we are to make a correct judgement.

13:00 - 14:00: Lunch

14:00 – 16:00: The Johari Window, Diane Simpson- To understand others, it is recommended to first understand yourself.  This promises to be a fascinating talk with really useful handouts!

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

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

11:00 – 12:30: The Child is Father of the Man, Christina Strang - How much do childhood behaviour patterns impact on work and relationships in adult years?  Christina will encourage us to get involved as she works through this question and explores the 'Wordsworth Syndrome'.

13:00: Lunch

14:00 – 15:30: The Mythological Types of Helene St Morand, John Beck - John will introduce the eight personality types, set down in antiquity, and show how to recognise these in handwriting.  This useful typology can reveal so much about the writer, it has been widely used in France for more than fifty years.
