Metagraphology

Term indicating psychometric power on the basis of scripts. It has nothing to do with graphology (interpretation of personality traits indicated in handwriting), as the reading of the present, past, and future of the subject is not effected by the study of the writing. The script simply serves as an influence, as does any given object in psychometry.

The sole justification of the term "metagraphology" is the fact that some graphologists developed their remarkably sensitive powers from the study of scripts. Raphael Schermann was the most notable among the metagraphologists. Similar powers were discovered in Otto Reimann of Prague, a bank clerk born in 1903 who, by simply touching a script, would offer a psycho-metric reading and also imitate the writing. He was studied by Professor Fischer of Prague.
