What Does Your Handwriting Say About You? with Ruthie Chong
  Graphoanalysis is a scientific method of analyzing a person's handwriting to determine their personality and character. It is a sophisticated form of listening. Many people feel confused and misunderstood about who they truly are. However, your handwriting reveals your strengths and weaknesses, as well as your talents, natural abilities, and potential. As they say... "many go through life with their music still inside them." Ruthie will give a brief overview of what Graphoanalysis is and is not, how it is used today, and how you can personally benefit from knowing what your own handwriting says about you.
