Background

From our inception in 1988, the IGC’s principal aim is one of attaining common ground and verifiably accurate descriptions of a persons’ character from the same sample of handwriting – no matter where in the world the professional graphological analysis is undertaken. Scientific validation for graphology is our added goal. 

With regard to finding “common ground”, the IGC’s International Manual of Graphology “ is a highly respected collaborative work (UK, Europe, USA & Canada) which establishes the key fundamentals of modern graphology.  Its second edition was published in 2015.

To highlight the important developments towards scientific validation, our Swiss and German colleagues have collaborated in test-trials, and most lately their collected researches have been published in the much welcomed  2018 publication Handwriting Research Validation& Quality”
