In the present study a method has been proposed for the behavioral prediction of a person through automated handwriting analysis. The present work identifies the psychological traits in the writing namely size, slant and pressure, baseline, number of breaks, margins, speed of writing and spacing between the words. The handwriting is analyzed through Image Processing in MATLAB. The behavioral pattern of the person is predicted from the above traits of the handwriting. The developed system identifies handwriting closely which may not be possible for a graphologist. It is real time and involves less image preprocessing. The proposed system is calibrated with manual analysis. The results obtained through the system are in good agreement to more than 80 percent of the cases with ideal manual analysis.
