The psychogram is a psychological chart or "map" on which an individual's
essential handwriting characteristics are recorded. The Psychogram is
arranged in syndromes and plotted on a circle. It is divided into eight
syndromes, Klara Roman, who developed the Psychogram in Hungary and
took it with her to America in the 1940's, defined it as a "profile
in a circle" of the writer's personality. The upper half of the Psychogram
deals with intangible values, aspirations, imagination and things of
the mind and spirit. This includes artistic ability, creativity, literary
talent and overall intelligence. The lower half deals primarily with
the unconscious and measures drives, libido, emotions and repressions.
Although in plotting a psychogram, some of the values are subjective,
many are measured on an instrument called a Psychogram Guide.
