A term indicating the psychometric ability of an individual on the basis of script. This phenomenon has nothing to do with the phenomenon of graphology (handwriting analysis). In this phenomenon the past, present, or future is read without regard to the subject of the script. The script itself only serves as an influence.
The only justification for the term metagraphology is that some graphologists develop a keen sensitivity in this phenomenon while they are studying scripts. A most notable metagraphologist was Raphael Schermann. Another more recent one is Otto Reimann, born in 1903, a bank clerk in Prague who could simply touch script and exhibit accurate psychometric ability. He was studied by Dr. Fischer of Prague. A.G.H.
