Evaluating Sexual Behavior from Writing Characteristics.
King, Leslie W.
In discussing sexual behavior as part of and as a result of the total personality, it is appropriate to examine all aspects of a person's handwriting rather than examining only lower looped components in evaluating sexual disturbances. The development of sexual mores and sex roles in our culture from the early Greeks, Romans, and Hebrews through the Middle Ages to the present adds a religious aspect to sex in our culture that leads to repressive sex approaches and perversion not found in cultures where no religious taint of sinfulness is attached to sex. An examination of writing samples of people who have sexual difficulties indicates specific sexual maladjustments and other nonsexual personality characteristics reflected in the handwriting that are part of the sexual maladjustment. Such characteristics include aggressiveness, passivity, and avoidance of close interpersonal relationships. Included with the paper is a scoring method to ascertain specific degrees of strength for desire and control. (TJ)
