Graphology
from Fancyclopedia 2
Occasionally an article or series appears in a fanzine, making a graph-analysis of some figure/s well known in the pro or fan world. These analyses are usually put in such general terms that they could be true of a lot of people, and much of the time the analyst knows the person before he starts to "figure him out" from his handwriting. Nan Gerding and Dick Eney, however, once published the results of a hoax on a graphologist, in which Eney had written in two different types of script which were analyzed as the chirographies of, respectively, a sensitive intellectual poetic genius, and a dull, priggish file-clerk type. The chief contribution of such articles to fan lore is the Type Fifteen Fan.
