MANO.gif (2676 byte)


As a “social being”, the man cannot keep relationships with the ones of the same specie out of consideration. The first approach is made through a sensorial action: acquaintance generates an emotion, which in turn, determines an emotional aimed reaction to move all the forces of the man in case of danger.

Because the relationship with the environment hides tricks and traps, the man must be able to comprehend intentions and to evaluate the possible actions of the approaching ones.


The emotional reaction to different situations is a personal element resulting from constitutional and acquired parts by experience. Obviously a well structured personality can tackle with an emotional shock easier than a psychically frail one and can adequately set the needed defenses.

Emotivity degree: it is shown in the short cuts of “t”, fluctuating, leaning. Of course the calm, controlled person will react only when actually provoked; whereas the susceptible and exciting one will fight instinctively and immediately.

Tendency to clarify: it is shown in the sign sharp-corned eyelets. If the person is subject to get frightened morbidly, causing a block of words and ideas, there will be short cuts; if the person tends to hide from the environment, they are upside down.

Reaction on the same level: if it is pleasing toward the others, curved strokes; if the person hides itself behind sweet attitudes, curved-twisted strokes.

Giving up attitude: it is shown in descending signs, curved eyelets.


This is the most bright form of reactivity and is a necessary phenomenon, aimed to discourage all offensive and dangerous behaviour. But it has to be adequate, otherwise it can turn into offense and overwhelm.

According to how it shows up, the resentment is indicated in the following tracts:

-         springing

-         enlonged T cuts (verbal aggressivity, aggressive rush)

-         tight T cuts (anger facing oppositions)

-         Curved – twisted strokes (hardness hidden by respectful attitude)

-         Ascending (aggressivity)

-         Great (anger because of indignation).



All the mental attitudes toward others and the adopted behaviours make up the basis on which interpersonal relationships are settled.

The one who feels himself loved, accepted, taken into consideration, manages the relationship with others in a serene and gratifying way.

So, there can be:

understanding (oscillating) misunderstanding (lack of oscillation)

spirit of sacrifice (curved) lack of sacrifice (acute)

reliability (curved strokes) surliness (twisted strokes)

respect for the personality (small) lack of respect for the other (large)



A personality where all tendencies and aptitudes inteact harmoniously is defined as sane and well balanced. Since his birth, the child lives in a condition of inferiority and dependence and his well-being is ruled and built by an adult. Growing up, the child is both pleased and frustrated, and conflicts and tensions arise. If they are properly managed, they contribute to develop a better personality.

Components of the temper indicating the “psychic health” can be resumed as follow:

-         capability to meet reality with a dash and enjoying it (ascending), realistically and objectivity (wide between the words)

-         capability to recuperate coming from optimism (ascending), possibility to see a situation for what it is worth (wide between words)

-         feeling of identity based upon the awareness and responsibility (wide between words, small)

-         joy of life (ascending, thin serifs)
