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.
