People Never Change Much and What You Can Do About It

Monday, November 23rd, 2015
Share Button

People never change much. Instead of rejecting this reality, making your life more difficult, try a different approach.

“Many people change their behavior for the better after long struggles, such as with obesity, addiction or finally finding the right relationship or career. So how can you say people don’t change?”

Aside from addicts who get clean and sober, how often have you known someone to change so much you don’t recognize his personality? Never, if you know his true character.

Someone with an addictive personality will always have an addictive personality, and a jerk still has those red flag personality traits seething beneath the surface.

As I say in this blog post, “Discipline and perseverance can lead to small, incremental change, such as finally kicking unhealthy habits, but your overall character remains the same.” Your true nature remains the same no matter what you do.

I say in this blog post, “Handwriting analysis (graphology) shows how a person thinks and acts, along with their emotional balance, maturity, and much more. It denotes past conduct and displays potential for future behavior.”

I assess character as I perceive it now, though I’ve found that people’s core personality traits generally don’t change, just like people’s looks and voices don’t change much; you’ll still recognize her voice or know who she is after not seeing her for years.

Demanding that someone change the way she is will make your life miserable. Instead, just accept that people are who they are, and why not prepare for potential problems? I’m an optimist, not a pessimist, and very pragmatic.

Find out as much as you can about someone, before investing too much time, money, or emotion, because understanding more easily allows you to accept him or her as they are (and limit your risk).

“Money and success don’t change people; they merely amplify what is already there.”

Relationship and Partnership Compatibility: Follow Up Q & A

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015
Share Button

Regarding what you wrote about compatibility, even if the energy is terrible between two people, if they both act maturely and fairly, it doesn’t have to be an absolute disaster, things don’t have to escalate. It seems to me that with the right effort, the worst connection can be as wonderful and productive as the best connection. Do you agree?”

I disagree. In a perfect world, things would never escalate and you would be able to forever avoid interpersonal challenges in even the most demanding partnerships. But we don’t live in a perfect world.

In a perfect world war wouldn’t exist either, but war has always been a fact of life and I expect it to continue because evil people will always exist.

Maturity and being fair surely helps two people get along. But innate, extremely adverse energy between two people makes the relationship grueling from the start.

The more challenging the natural energetic connection, personal or business, the harder you have to work at it. If you spend 80% of your energy bolstering your sense of compassion and detachment trying to rise above the native problematic energy of the partnership, you don’t have a wonderful relationship.

My long-term empirical research shows that you can’t transform the inborn energy of a difficult relationship into that of a naturally rewarding relationship.

Again, the natural, unique energy simply exists between the two people from the very beginning of the connection. The compatibility I’m referring to is esoteric and definable through my systems of analysis.

It has nothing to do with how the two people react, or red flag personality issues, or if one steals from or otherwise hurts the other person. Those concerns are an entirely different partnership issue.

Innately Favorable Connections

The inherent energy may be very favorable between two people, but both, for example, may have a tendency, particularly while under pressure, to be fiery and confrontational in communication. For example, one invariably expresses her annoyance about some petty issue and the trouble begins.

Worse, both uncompromisingly refuse to tolerate such behavior from the other and, or deny any wrongdoing completely, compounding the problem and intensifying the discord.

Things don’t have to escalate in a connection that is awful from the start if you both manage to forever grin and bear it (which is doubtful), but you’ll be putting most of your energy toward avoiding disaster instead of enjoyment, or productive gains if it’s a business relationship.

You don’t have to wonder any longer if you’re truly compatible, or if that person has hidden red flag personality issues.

Relationship and Partnership Compatibility: 7 Secrets Revealed

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015
Share Button

Your life, personal and professional, is replete with opportunities for partnerships.

Even so, it’s too easy to waste an enormous amount of time, energy, and money before figuring out that compatibility, beyond surface kinship, is nonexistent between you and another person.

Conventional science hasn’t figured out how to assess compatibility before it’s too late, and deep-rooted, disruptive peculiarities between individuals have mystified people for thousands of years.

However, the principles I’ve formed through long-term empirical research can save you a lot of pain.

Below I list seven relationship and partnership compatibility secrets.

1. Forces beyond your control determine the real compatibility between you and another person.

Most people realize that person A and person B innately have a different level of compatibility than person B and person C. The unique energy is fixed no matter their maturity level or how well they try to get along.

Even if person A and person B have all the same interests and similar backgrounds, their relationship will be a struggle if the inherent compatibility is terrible.

Likewise, even if person B and person C have nothing in common and share completely different backgrounds, if the compatibility is high, they will enjoy a congenial connection.

2. Compatibility is measurable. I accurately measure it in my unique systems of analysis involving handwriting analysis and comprehensive astrology and numerology.

Extremes in compatibility are easy for me to identify. These distinctive extremes (good and bad) exist between some couples, but not all, because the energy is exclusive between each two individuals.

You’ve likely encountered a connection in which discord reigns, no matter what you do. Or you’ve encountered the opposite, harmony and like-mindedness.

Or how about those connections, personal or professional in which it practically rains abundance and rewards? Or the opposite, those that represent cruel trials and struggles? Or, those unions that seem to be a dream come true at first, until it becomes a nightmare? Or how about love life relationships where the sex is so astoundingly good or the opposite, pathetic? Or how about business relationships where two intelligent, successful individuals who both lack any significant personality red flags are baffled by unforeseen exploits that destroy the partnership?

I identify all of these types of extremes and more, before they unfold, through my systems of analysis.

3. Challenging innate compatibility is not your fault and it isn’t the other person’s fault.

Aside from one partner ripping off the other or otherwise intentionally hurting the other, in which case blame would be appropriate, a wise person would not blame the other for the natural, severe idiosyncrasies within the union that neither has any control over.

4. In some cases, blame may be appropriate if compatibility is favorable but one person possesses personality flaws that make the connection impossible.

An individual’s onerous personality challenges such as vanity, domineering tendencies, anger, drug and alcohol problems, stubbornness, and others can ruin even the best innate energy between her and another person. Extreme red flag personality traits are identifiable through handwriting analysis, part of my systems of analysis.

5. Everyone has different personal timing and timing does matter immensely in partnerships.

Shared or agreeable collective timing can contribute greatly to amicable rapport or even serve as the foundation for it. But when personal timing changes so does the relationship (i.e., termination) if it’s based on timing instead of non-timing factors.

6. The harder you must work at a relationship (personal or business), the worse the natural connection between you and the other person.

It’s that simple, though the “all relationships require hard work” crowd will tell you otherwise. Unless you have no choice, you’re better off avoiding burdensome connections.

7. Intrinsic compatibility isn’t a choice and if it’s not there you can’t create it. It won’t improve or get worse no matter what you think or do.

Perhaps you’ve heard, “as long as you try to get along with someone you can.” That’s only true to a point. No matter how much you try to see the good in another, and no matter how much she does the same, it won’t change the natural energy between you. It’s not a choice; it’s simply something you can’t alter.

Think of how much time and money you can save knowing if negative extremes exist between you and another person.

You don’t have to wonder any longer if you’re truly well matched, or if that person has hidden red flag personality issues.

Handwriting Analysis: Why People Have Different Handwriting

Monday, August 3rd, 2015
Share Button

Your handwriting is as unique as your fingerprint. Even twins have different fingerprints and different handwriting. Being a twin and having studied twins and their handwriting, I’m familiar with this phenomenon. The reason people have different handwriting is because everyone is different.

Considering the task of writing demands a sophisticated synchronization of body, nerves, brain, and mind function, you don’t expect every person to write exactly the same, do you?

To the amateur analyst, two people’s script may look similar—both are about the same size and shape, and perhaps they both look “masculine.”

But take into account these handwriting indicators reviewed by well-trained graphologists: baseline; capitals; connectives; connectivity; consistency; contradictions in script; compression; contraction/expansiveness; down-strokes; ductus; elaboration; expansion; finals; fluidity; form; harmony; hooks; jabs; knots; lead-ins; legibility; loops; margins; movement; organization; originality; personal pronoun I; pressure; retracing; rhythm; shading; signature; simplicity; size; slant; overall arrangement and picture of space; letter, word and line spacing; speed; spirals; tension; ties; zonal balance and much more.

Over three hundred factors are analyzed in a handwriting sample and the representative energy of any single factor is either supported or mitigated by the energy of the other indicators.

Though cursive script may be declining in popularity, printed script can be analyzed too.

Handwriting analysis is directly linked to the subconscious mind, where all your fears, defenses, and strengths reside.

It sometimes takes months or longer to see genuine character emerge from a business associate or romantic partner, and it can be shocking.

This is due to the fact that everyone has various public personas and the real personality traits—negative and positive—are buried until the person is under pressure and stress.

Psychological self-tests (and other problematic forms of personality analysis) fail to unveil authentic personality for various reasons.

Fortunately, handwriting analysis does effectively and objectively assess personality. See this blog post for what handwriting does not reveal and what it does reveal.

How to Identify Overindulgence and Excess

Monday, June 15th, 2015
Share Button

Destructive pleasure seeking, such as drug use or regularly having too much to drink, is a dangerous trap that creeps up on a person and can destroy their life and the lives of those around them.

A life of excess may also include other types of hedonism, such as junk food addiction leading to obesity and serious health problems.

Sometimes the problem is temporary, such as with high school and college kids who go through an experimentation phase, but with other people it’s a serious problem that calls for treatment.

Identifying overindulgence and problematic self-gratification is sometimes easy if a person is already traipsing along the edge of disaster, but frequently it’s difficult to spot before it’s too late.

Hidden unhealthy excess is unlikely to be an area of direct focus for a hiring manager because it’s not directly related to the skills demanded of the job. Although many companies require mandatory drug testing, many don’t, most tests are easy to cheat, and it’s not easy to test for other problems like alcoholism.

It’s a significant topic of interest for those who have their livelihood at stake, such as a business owner who wants to check out a potential business partner, employee, or spouse.

In identifying problematic overindulgence, I measure the following traits, along with others, through handwriting analysis:

  1. Lack of control, which is a sure sign a person can’t stop.
  2. Excess rationalization, which equates to fooling one’s self that the problem isn’t a problem.
  3. A person’s motivation being largely pleasure, instead of, for example, money, altruism, ego needs, or leadership, which is a sign they’ll have too much of a good thing too often.
  4. A weak ego, or poor ego strength, which is a bad sign for overindulgence and addiction.
  5. Excessive resentment–although being occasionally resentful doesn’t mean you have a problem with overconsumption, those with addiction problems frequently have above average levels of resentment.
  6. Escapist and surrender tendencies, which are common with those who have overindulgence problems.
  7. Excessive secretiveness, which is a common trait of those living a life of excess.

In addition to handwriting analysis, distinct patterns in the comprehensive astrology and numerology charts alert me to overindulgence problems. Precarious, personal, collective timing alone won’t signal trouble, but paired with problematic natal/personality patterns it does.

Although the cost of security investigations and non-traditional investigations such as mine may seem expensive, one major mishap by those prone to intemperance can destroy livelihoods and, or relationships. It pays to limit your risk before it’s too late.

10 Common Traits of Mentally Strong People‏

Monday, May 25th, 2015
Share Button

Mental strength, or fortitude, is a key component to success.

Merriam-Webster dictionary defines fortitude as, “…strength of mind that enables a person to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage.”

I recently reflected on the idea of mental toughness when I was severely jet-lagged due to a more than twelve-hour time difference, and sleep deprived from only about six hours sleep in three days. It’s what allows you to press ahead, clearing obstacles in your path, without letting anything bother you.

Below I list what I believe are ten common traits of mentally strong people.

  1. A healthy ego equates to a lack of insecurity and a strong sense of self-worth. A person who has a healthy ego doesn’t need any outside validation. They don’t have an endless need for appreciation and can easily handle rejection.
  2. Emotional problems detract from mental aptitude and strength. Mentally strong people commonly possess exceptional emotional maturity and balance.
  3. Although stubbornness is generally referred to as a personality red flag, it does seem to go hand in hand with mental toughness, as do determination and persistence.
  4. A self-disciplined individual may sometimes be restless, but he doesn’t surrender. Self-discipline is undoubtedly one of the most important keys to success.
  5. Optimism, or a lack of despair, certainly helps to maintain mental strength.
  6. The inability to let go of past wrongs and perceived injustices detract from fortitude. A lack of excessive resentment is a big plus for maintaining strong-mindedness.
  7. Decisiveness is crucial to avoid the anxiety that comes with not being able to make a decision.
  8. Clear thinking, the ability to put aside the toxic, repetitive thought patterns that bounce around your mind, is a core component of mental strength.
  9. Mentally strong people, generally, lack extreme subconscious fears and defenses.
  10. A lack of a victim mentality, refusing to play the poor me game, is a sure sign of mental strength.

All of the aforementioned personality qualities, negative and positive, are readily appraised through my unconventional security investigations.

Some of the more esoteric and, or more difficult to measure common traits of mentally strong individuals include the following: detachment from outcomes, and focus on the process while doing one’s best; talent for being in the present moment; ability to disassociate oneself from dark thoughts when at one’s weakest point; ability to recognize that which isn’t changeable, and acceptance of it entirely; contentment with extended periods of solitude.

Although it may be easier to evaluate mental strength than maximize it, a healthy lifestyle goes a long way to increase your fortitude.

Seven Personality Traits That Often Lead to Failure

Monday, March 23rd, 2015
Share Button

Many red flag personality traits exist, but seven notorious attributes more frequently lead to personal and, or professional failure.

Lack of objectivity: Almost everyone possesses some degree of bias, but someone who can’t make impartial decisions greatly limits his success.

Lack of self-discipline: George Washington said, “Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all.” Roy L. Smith said, “Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.” Lack of self-discipline may be one of the most prevalent characteristics that equates to failure. Health, family, career, relationships—every part of your life demands self-discipline.

Lack of logical Thinking: It’s no secret flawed logic leads to failure, but as Leonard Nimoy said, “Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.”

Indecisiveness: The inability to make a decision has resulted in countless failures.

Lack of analytical ability: Critical thinking skills are important. A person unable to make accurate distinctions invites failure.

Lack of discretion: Not knowing when to keep one’s mouth shut has sunk many a ship.

Unhealthy emotional state: Lack of emotional intelligence creates a constant up-hill battle, magnifying everyday stress. The result is a serious impediment to success.

These red flag personality traits set the stage for disappointment and complicate chances for success. All of them are readily assessed through handwriting analysis and my non-traditional security investigations.

42% of Felony Background Checks are Erroneous

Monday, March 16th, 2015
Share Button

According to the Government Accountability Office, government background checks identifying convicted felons were erroneous at least 42 percent of the time.

Thousands of job seekers with clean records have been flagged as criminals. Read more about the problem in this New York Times article.

Two other related problems include convicted felons who aren’t flagged in background checks, and even the most trusted databases including arrest records but no indication if the person was convicted of a crime.

Not all public record information is available from any single site and some of it isn’t valid. Public records search firms offer notoriously inaccurate basic background check reports because it’s too time consuming to check every state and local database.

It’s understandable that employers refuse to hire those with certain offenses such as violent crime or theft. However, there doesn’t seem to be a consensus on what a disqualifying offense should be for certain jobs, and the ever-increasing number of offenses an individual can be arrested for is troubling. A criminal conviction may be something victimless like being caught sans clothing with your lover on a deserted public beach late at night.

Any arrest whatsoever can ruin a person’s chances for a successful career. But don’t blame the cops. They simply enforce laws enacted by politicians, like those in the U.S. Congress.

An aside, today’s law enforcement seems more about collecting revenue than keeping us safe. Victimless crime constitutes more than 80% of the U.S. federal prison population. Trillions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on the drug war, U.S. prison boom, harsh sentences for petty and victimless crimes, and a wasteful criminal justice system.

There is no shortage of dangerous and dishonest people in the world. The purpose of a background check is to uncover personality red flags. But in order to do this effectively, you must utilize more than just a routine public records check.

To uncover any potential problem areas, I recommend a range of employment and, or psychological evaluations, comprehensive public records background checks, and multiple interviews.

To really get to know someone, use more sophisticated options, such as traditional security investigations, and handwriting analysis, included in my non-traditional security investigations.

Revealed: Handwriting Analysis Accurately Measures Evasiveness

Monday, February 23rd, 2015
Share Button

Evasiveness is a problematic escape-type subconscious defense pattern and it’s accurately measured by handwriting analysis.

Escape-type defenses, such as evasiveness, self-deception, and secretiveness, are usually more difficult to modify than resistance-type defenses such as aggressiveness and domineering behavior.

In other words, for those who possess these personality traits in the extreme, it’s generally more difficult to be straightforward and candid than to stop being a bully.

It’s perfectly acceptable to possess some evasiveness; changing the subject when asked your political affiliation in a social setting, for example, is harmless enough.

However, in excess, it’s a form of dishonesty. It’s about average on the overall scale of dishonesty ranging from harmless (white lies) to abusive (intentional deception).

Extreme evasiveness equates to a lack of transparency and thwarts interpersonal communication. You don’t get the full story with someone who is evasive, and it can manifest as not returning phone calls or responding to e-mails. Evasiveness certainly complicates friendships and relationships, and detracts from leadership ability.

All of the aforementioned personality traits and many others are readily measured through handwriting analysis. As one of the most effective methods to identify genuine character, handwriting analysis helps you significantly reduce your business and personal related risk.

Cracking the Compatibility Code

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015
Share Button

Lots of people would like to crack the compatibility code, including everyone who wonders if their business partner, employee, friend, or relationship partner is the right match.

In order to crack the code and uncover the actual compatibility between two people, you need to understand the truth about interpersonal compatibility.

My findings about compatibility reveal these key points:

  1. Varying degrees of compatibility exist; two people are either compatible or they aren’t, and it’s measurable. Compatibility can’t be controlled.
  2. The harder you must work to make a relationship work (business or personal), the worse the innate compatibility is between two people.
  3. Subjective self-tests and quizzes may give you an idea of your personal interests and temperament, but they can’t be relied upon to measure true compatibility.
  4. Two people can share a wonderful innate connection, but if one or both possess problem personality traits, such as extreme jealousy, anger, irrationality, unreliability, vanity, dishonesty, or any other red flag personality issues (which are effectively uncovered by handwriting analysis), the connection becomes an up-hill battle.
  5. Shared collective timing, such as several key time cycles, can form the basis of a close relationship. However, when the shared timing ends, so does the relationship, if it’s not rooted in non-timing (i.e., personality) indicators.
  6. At times, you are forced to endure the worst of someone’s character, even if your compatibility is wonderful. This dynamic shows up when your collective timing is unfavorable and representative of discord or similar energy. Personal timing is very significant.
  7. No matter how good the compatibility is between you and another person, it’s wise to keep in mind that most people are not rational creatures. Emotions drive people’s behavior, then they rationalize it by offering logical reasons that aren’t the real reasons.

Intrinsic compatibility between two people can be accurately illustrated on a scale of 1-100, for example.

Extremes are easy for me to identify. In some cases, the measured compatibility between two people is fantastic. In others, it’s horrible. Average compatibility is more common.

Think of how much time and money you could save knowing that you simply aren’t compatible with someone.
