A Guide to Discover 40 Jobs
To Fit Your Personality
David DeWitt is a Certified Graphoanalyst. As Such, Mr. DeWitt has spent decades studying, analyzing and interpreting the handwriting of countless individuals. Simply stated, he helps people to understand themselves, their personal strengths, and yes, even their weaknesses through the way they put pen to paper. I have witnessed Dave practicing his science. The insightful results that he produces by viewing one’s handwriting are astounding, as well as personally and professionally transformational. His intentions are thoroughly altruistic. So, why should Graphoanalysis be of interest to you? … In this book, Handwriting Analysis – Discover Your Own Vocational/Career Potential, Mr. DeWitt links handwriting analysis with professional satisfaction and instructs you in the analysis of your own handwriting. It is not uncommon for individuals to labor a lifetime in an occupation that they truly dislike or to which they are, at best, indifferent. Or they might move from job to job multiple times, desperately seeking a ‘career’ that is edifying. Moreover, young people just entering a sparse job market might find that they have little idea of occupations that could be personally and professionally rewarding to them. The ancient Chinese philosopher, Confucius, once stated “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”… Through this book, David DeWitt seeks to affirm this timeless advice.

Author David J. DeWitt, GA, is still active as professional graphologist and graphoanalyst. He recommends two methods: Gestalt Method which considers handwriting as a whole, and Trait Method Aka Graphoanalysis®, the registered trademark of the International Graphoanalysis Society, Inc. DeWitt has been lecturing about handwriting analysis in high schools and colleges for over 50 years.
Handwriting Analysis is meant to be a basic guide for handwriting analysis, and was written to provide information on a particular topic – finding a job that matches personal potential. The book will help to provide guidelines in determining occupational potential and is recommended for counselors, parents and / or teachers.
It took more than eight years of research on the part of the author, including talks on ‘discovering your vocational potential’ by applying handwriting analysis to high school and college students across New England. The book is not meant to make anyone a professional writing analyst; that requires years of study.

DeWitt tries to provide timeless advice and suggests 40 professions to align with the personal qualities of the writer. He calls graphoanalysis his own personality test because he considers the methods of among others Jung and Myers / Briggs unsuitable. With their permission, he uses – Vocational Direction Through Handwriting Analysis: The Vocational Graphoanalytic Inventory “, Irene Lambert, 1995.
– RIASEC Holland codes, which were first described by John Holland in his “Making, Vocational Choices’ (1996).
Before making a final assessment, handwriting as a whole, must be carefully analyzed, along with other characteristics and indications. There are no indications that hand-writing is in itself is sufficient to determine the character traits of the writer.
Handwriting Analysis provides a new perspective that is not found in traditional graphology books. During his decades-long career DeWitt has experienced that individual’s use of handwriting analysis has been the most popular application. People love to hear about themselves! That makes this book such an interesting publication.
