Handwriting Analysis – Some Elaboration is Healthy & Perfect Penmanship Isn’t

Elaborate handwriting, including lots of

embellishment such as unnecessary loops,

curves, spirals, underlining, circles, wavy lines,

and other forms is an important, and telling,

handwriting analysis consideration.

Handwriting analysis, or graphology, is so

informative because it reveals subconscious

character, the real personality, not just the

persona and the one seen when a person is

at his or her best.

The U.S. Library of Congress classifies

graphology as a branch of psychology.

All in all, there are over 300 handwriting traits

to consider when doing an analysis. Some of the

more obvious ones include the following:

connectives; connectivity; consistency;

contradictions in script; compression;

contraction/expansiveness; down-strokes;

elaboration; expansion; finals; fluidity; form;

harmony; hooks; jabs; knots; lead-ins; legibility;

loops; margins; movement; organization;

originality; pressure; retracing; rhythm; shading;

signature compared to the rest of script;

simplicity; size; slant; overall arrangement

and picture of space; letter, word and line

spacing; speed; spirals; tension; ties;

zonal balance and much more.

Does any single consideration, such as the

excessive elaboration, override the cumulative

strength of the collective body of other

considerations? No.

The collective body of traits in a handwriting

sample either supports or mitigates the energy of

any one individual aspect.

Also, in order for a specific graphology trait to

accurately reflect personality, it must be

throughout the handwriting sample at least

three to four times to qualify.

Accuracy in graphology demands that the context

of the entire writing sample be considered and that

all individual aspects and parts of the script must

be interpreted independently and then built into a

complete picture describing the personality.

Also, you need at least a half page of cursive

handwriting and not just a signature if you want

to start on the right track.

For the highest level of accuracy in handwriting

analysis, formal graphology training is recommended.

However, we created our Graphology Resource Keys

for anyone to gain a very good understanding of their

own or other’s subconscious character simply by

comparing a handwriting sample to the Keys.

Copybook form, or “perfect handwriting,” varies

somewhat from country to country and it’s best

to be familiar with the standard copybook form of

the country in which the person learned to write.

It’s good if your handwriting is not perfect, because

you don’t want perfect handwriting. It’s natural to

gradually move away from the basic copybook

form you learned in grade school to develop your

own unique style.

Just as everyone has a unique personality, everyone

has unique handwriting. Aristotle remarked,

“Spoken words are the symbols of mental experience

and written words are the symbols of spoken words.

Just as all men do not have the same speech sounds, so

do all men not have the same writing.”

Adults who write in copybook form (considering

there is corroborating energy from the rest of the

handwriting considerations) strive to follow all rules

exactly and abide by all laws. They are usually

conformists, traditional, and inhibited. They

commonly carry guilt and repression is customary.

Hence, “perfect” handwriting is far from perfect.

If your handwriting has a lot of originality with high

form level (good balance, movement, harmony, etc.)

and other positive traits, it could indicate flexibility,

resourcefulness, confidence, inward motivation, and

possible leadership skills.

On the other hand, if you see originality in an

off-balanced, inharmonious script (low form level),

you could find rebelliousness, defiance, turmoil,

confusion, dishonesty, and even psychosis

or criminal-minded behavior.

Spirals are generally a negative sign relating,

in part, to deception or self-deception.

Normal elaboration includes longer than usual

t-bars and finals at the end of words, for example.

Excessive elaboration, such as artificial flourishes,

many added strokes, long lower zone length (loops

of letters such as lower case g and j), etc. could

indicate an ostentatious personality with a need to

impress others, a need for drama, flirtatiousness,

vanity, exaggeration, bluff, a mind too rooted in

fantasy, insincerity, a need to be told they are

loved, façade of intrigue to mask an inferiority

complex, possible deception, scattered energy,

affectation, defense for self-consciousness,

unstable self image, too much focus on

trivial matters, and difficulty concentrating.

As the level of inharmoniousness increases with

excessive elaboration, the negative traits listed

above will also intensify.

If you see excessive elaboration mainly in the

upper zone (e.g., where the t’s are crossed), which

is the zone of the intellect, you may find someone

whose thinking is ruled by illusion, and even

someone who is a compulsive liar.

But remember, although it’s alluded to above, it’s

important enough to say again: no single graphology

indicator, by itself, absolutely describes any one

personality trait.

Yes, straight-across, blunt ending strokes can

indicate cautiousness, but there could be ten or

more other indicators in a person’s script that

would mitigate the notion.

If you find elaboration that is excessively

complicated, especially with many complicated

circle letters, such as a and o, it could point toward

someone who is trying to hide something, even if

it’s on an unconscious level and not in an

intentionally deceptive way.

Look to the zone of handwriting for more clues to

what the excessive elaboration with inharmonious

handwriting indicates: in the lower zone (where the

loops of letters such as g and j reside) it’s an

imbalance relating to sexuality, social life, materialism,

and physical energy, among others; in the middle

zone (where letters such as n, m, and o reside) it’s an

imbalance in practicality, daily routine, here-and-

now, ego, consciousness and more; and in the upper

zone (where the t-bar, tops of t’s, and h’s reside) it’s

an imbalance in mental, intellectual, philosophical,

literary interests, the imagination, and more.

When you see a Hollywood star’s signature

that has over-the-top elaboration, if the rest of his

or her script is much more subdued, it’s a sign of


Alternatively, elaboration with positive indicators

is favorable. With harmonious handwriting it can

symbolize charm, healthy imagination, and

How To Create A Perfect App For Hotel Business

If you run a hospitality business, no one knows about convenience better than you. A mobile app is the next level of convenience, a popular solution for staying unconstrained in communication. It is valued by people who travel and stay at hotels. They value comfort and relaxation. They need to know that any service is instantly accessible. And they get it all while staying at your hotel.

Mobility and quality belong to the key elements of service. You have the latter. A dedicated app brings the former. It can become a part of your hotel’s image. It doesn’t quite matter how large your hotel is and how many suites there are. Every client deserves the mobile convenience in booking and getting the latest information, given by such an app. You own a mobile solution that widens the reach of your brand and brings client loyalty. If the application is equipped with all these features as well as your hotel is with services, it’s a good way to go.

Clients receive a free-downloaded mobile application that will facilitate their choice, manage booking, inform them of anything they might need, and help them communicate with the hotel staff. Let’s take a closer look at the features of a perfect app for your hotel.

– Direct online booking – the function that must be put above everything else. The more simplified for users it is, the better. Provide them with a list of available suites with photos, prices and descriptions. Real-time updates are vital to keep track of suite availability. Essentially include means of online payment/prepayment and direct communication, such as click-to-call.

– Your application should utilize geolocation to provide users with directions to your hotel.

– A good option is a choice of languages in the app. English is spread worldwide, but your foreign visitors would be delighted to choose a language they might know better. These could be German, Spanish, French, Russian – the languages spoken in numerous countries around the world.

That was all about booking and choosing. But the application is still of use after the client’s arrival, and will be throughout the stay. Here are the things that are by no means less important for clients:

– Details on hotel facilities, services and amenities: swimming pools, childcare, fitness centers – any range of activities you offer. There might be information about the nearby activities, attractions, restaurants, shopping centers etc. This information will be appreciated.

– Information about the forthcoming hotel activities and special events can be delivered in a number of ways, such as Push-notifications. Let the clients decide, what kinds of activities they want to be informed of.

– You may include direct communication with the hotel staff. Thus your clients are able to leave requests

– Finally, you may choose to include social network sharing. Your loyal clients would be glad to recommend your brand and services across Twitter, Google+ and Facebook.

Such is a well-packed perfect app for hotel business. Choose which of these options you would like to implement in your own application. Or perhaps you can come up with a new idea for a feature. After all, it’s up to you to make right decisions. A branded application is a worthy investment that increases clients’ satisfaction, and as a result, brings returns.

Let’s look through some features of the apps designed for the world’s most famous examples of hospitality industry companies.

Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts has an app with a fine user interface, colored in white and gold. The overall looks are quite pleasant, and the most necessary options – ‘Find A Hotel’, ‘Book A Room’ and ‘Offers’ – are at hand. The Android app covers a variety of its versions, ranging from 2.3.4 to 4.1.1.

Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts is one of the top players in the industry. Its iOS application features rich photo galleries. That is where images are important as ever – your clients have everything they need to make a choice.

The Android app for The Ritz-Carlton Hotels includes the reservations menu, means of direct communication and a QR code reader.

Along with online booking, an iOS app for Hilton allows to leave requests and orders on personalizing the suite to match the preferences of the client. Everything is ready upon the arrival.

Naming Your Animal Massage Business – 7 Ideas For Coming Up With the Perfect Business Name

Coming up with the right name for your business is one of the most important parts of starting a company. It’s a good idea to spend some time on finding a name that’s unique, memorable and reflective of what it is you have to offer your clients.

When I tried to think of a name for my animal massage business, I got a bunch of friends together at a bar and asked them to help me brainstorm. They came up with several ideas, one worse than the other, and I ended up going to bed that night without a single good name to work with. And woke up the next morning with the perfect (in my opinion) name for my business (Nimble Limbs Animal Massage). Sometimes your brain does its best work when you just leave it alone.

Here are a few other ways to come up with a great name:

1. Pick up a dictionary and just leaf through it. Or look at one online – the interactive visualthesaurus.com is fun to use and displays a “map” of related words for every word you type in.

2. Think of a tag line for your business (things like “The Touch That Heals”, or “Put The Spring Back In That Spaniel”). Sometimes it’s easier to start with that and come up with a name based on it.

3. Write a mission statement. You’ll need one anyway, and you might come up with the perfect name while thinking about what your business is all about and putting it on paper.

4. Brainstorm with yourself. Write down a bunch of words that relate to your business (animal, massage, pet, health, dog, etc.). Pick one word you know for sure that you want in your name, like “pet” for example. Then try on words around that, like Healthy Pet, Pet Comforts, Pet Pampering or Pampered Pet (I always like alliterations – the repetition of the first consonant sound in a phrase). Just play around with it. Sometimes you’ll realize that you don’t want “pet” in the name after all, and that’s fine, it’s part of the process.

5. Go on hoovers.com and look at all the business names listed there – something might trigger an idea.

6. Try out different names on domain registration sites (like GoDaddy or Domainsbot.com). Many will suggest other options to you, and since you’ll probably want a website or blog anyway, it’s a great way to combine your name search with a domain name registration.

7. If you’re completely stuck and don’t mind spending $99, enlist the help of the online community at namethis.com. You just describe your business, the members start brainstorming, and after 48 hours, you’ll be presented with several names.

I hope that at least one of the suggestions above will help you find the ideal name for your business. Don’t worry if the process takes several months – it’s an important decision that shouldn’t be rushed.

Pather Panchali Sang The Perfect Song Of Humansim

1956, the Cannes Film Festival, a Bengali filmmaker got the award of “Best Human Document” for his low budget film “Pather Panchali”. The greatest film ever made in Indian History of Cinema. A novel turned into a motion frame just became eternal at the hands of legendary film director “Satyajit Ray“.

Produced by the Government of West Bengal, it was a directorial debut for Satyajit. The promising movie brought him fame that lasted until the day he won the Oscar.

The film is an adaptation of the 1929 “Bhibutishan Bandhopadhyay’s” Bengali Novel of the similar name. “Pather Panchali” is the first sequel of “The Apu Trilogy” by Satyajit Ray. It shows the early life of Apu showing his childhood days that he spent with his family in “Nishchindipur”.

If you ask me about the cast and crew, I will say that they were the gems of the film. Who turned them into gems? It was Satyajit Ray, his Midas touch made the amateur and novice actors and his crewmembers get fame for their whole life.

A Frame So Real

Satyajit was strongly influenced by Italian Neorealism, and he impoverished his own lyrical style in the film to give it more depth. It was the first film from India that won major International acclamation, making India proud.

The young protagonist in the film “Apu” (Subir Banerjee) who stays with his father “Harihar Ray” (Kanu Banerjee), mother “Sarbajaya” (Karuna Banerjee) and his elder sister “Durga” (Uma Dasgupta) another member was elderly aunt-in-law “Indir Thakurun” (Chunibala Devi).

A dilapidated family, which runs on a meager income as their father, is a poor priest in the village of “Nishchindipur”. From the beginning of the movie, what we view is the beautiful rural settings. The place is very near to Kolkata, (the then Calcutta) the village is called Boral. I think it’s the location, that has framed the entire movie to have a mass appeal worldwide, making it humanistic and spread the earthly smell.

Character Portray

Let us get a little into the skin of the characters.

Sarbajaya, Apu’s mother, has strong resentment against Aunt Indir, but the old woman is the best partner of young Durga.

Durga is the easy-going girl, but her mischievousness harasses Sarbajaya. As the elder sister to Apu, she nurtures him with motherly affection that he deserves.

A simple source of joy made the duo (Apu and Durga) happy. Cinema exhibits the childhood days of both of them and their activities like running after the candy man, watching “Jatra” (local theater), watching pictures in the bio-scope, finally comes the great scene where they both views a train passing by “Kaash” (a herbaceous flower grown in the autumn ) fields. The remorse stricken scenes follow next where we see Indir Thakurun pass away.

After this Harihar explores outside his village to make some extra earnings, his absence makes the family suffer deeper consequences.

The monsoon appears soon and with the downpour, their house gets the extreme setback, loss of Durga, due to high fever. Harihar returns home making money and faces the reality with a heavy heart. The family decides to leave their very own “Nishchindipur”.

The movie has a lovely ending, No, I am not talking about that slow moving ox-drawn cart rather the snake, which hissed and entered the house of those poor souls.

Why Ray Chooses “Pather Panchali”?

Ray chose the novel practically for two reasons: one because of its humanism and the next is the bitter truth of real life, which he showed through his reels. In English, “Pather Panchali” means “Song of the Road” and I think the title is apt enough to depict the real essence of being a human.

Renoir, the French director was there in Calcutta just before Satyajit began to shoot and he became the source of inspiration for him. Finally, it was the neorealist film Bicycle Thieves, that made his realistic cinema become a success that too with an amateur cast. Apart from the foreign influence, classical Sanskrit dramas do have a good impact on Satyajit.

Renowned Sitar player Pandit Ravi Shankar, who featured all the ragas and themes from Indian Classical music, arranged the background score for the movie. “Pather Panchali” was also the first Indian film after independence to receive international critical acclamation. The film received lovely praises from the newspapers and film critics, and got 17 different category awards in various Award ceremonies.

A creation that did justice to the novel in all aspects, I think hardly a director could have done that. Salute to Satyajit the man with the Midas touch and he will remain the legend of Indian Film Industry.
