Allan K. Grim, Jr. was an attorney for 30 years before retiring in 2000. After studying handwriting informally since the 1950's he was certified in 1993 as a professional Graphoanalyst by the International Graphoanalysis Society and in 2008 was selected Graphoanalyst of the Year. Grim not only analyzes writing to determine the personality of the writer, he also examines other handwritten items, such as forgeries, graffiti, historical documents, as well as threatening, ransom, anonymous, and suicide notes. He is a teacher, speaker, consultant, seminar leader, writer, and advocate for handwriting analysis, with a highly-ranked website GrimHandwritingAnalyst.com.
Grim has written a ground-breaking book called Strokes: Inside the Fascinating, Mysterious World of Handwriting Analysis. He explains what handwriting analysis is and why he believes it should be considered a worthy technique for revealing personality. He will also demonstrate several strokes and their trait meanings and show the many practical uses for handwriting analysis.
