How to spot a leader in their handwriting | Jamie Mason Cohen | TEDxUBIWiltz

21917 ratings | 1689247 views
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Do Steve Jobs and Nelson Mandela have anything extraordinary in common? Jamie Mason Cohen shows in this entertaining, thought-provoking and interactive talk that great leaders share some intriguing personality traits... in their handwriting! And what's more fascinating is that each of us also possesses some of these traits in the way we write too. What if, with some small changes in your writing strokes you could take your inner leader to its fullest potential? "You all have the power to lead, if only you pause for a moment to look inside your writing", Cohen says. It's a message with inspiring possibilities for us all. What others say: "[Jamie's] abilities are heroic and like a super hero, [he] uses them wisely. [He] has the ability to identify peoples' leadership qualities, 'promote' those qualities and send them away to be confident that they are the 'best' reflection of their handwriting." TEDxUBIWiltz Organizer, Dirk Daenen. Jamie Mason Cohen is a former film director turned high school teacher who once worked for Saturday Night Live. He is the recipient of the 2013 TED/Huffington Post international teaching award, The Sole Challenge, and a lifelong student of handwriting analysis. Cohen is an innovation expert in education who creates and applies 21st century creative learning strategies to inspire students and teachers around the world in the classroom and the conference room. Handwriting analysis gave Cohen, a shy, twelve year-old boy who was afraid of speaking in front of others the realization that he could express himself with words and that he had dreams to do it one day. From that day on, Cohen developed a passion for learning how a person's writing could reveal what makes them truly extraordinary. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Graphology is a pseudoscience.

That's really neat. I wonder if you can change your ahndwriting to change your characterisitics. I've heard that you can...

Adam Schefter, is that you?? I bet this is how you break headlines hrs before a player even knows he's been traded 😂😂😂 "judging by this young fan's hat, that was autographed moments ago by Sean Payton, my senses tell me Brandin Cooks will be traded to the New England Patriots this upcoming Monday"

All the negative people obviously missed the point. This is meant to be inspirational. He's basically saying that EVERYONE has the ability to lead. It's just not the same for everyone and not everyone will lead in the same manner.

I really liked this, I don't think it's very exact. But I think it has some truth behind it. I want to do more research into handwriting now.
SHINee Onew (1 month ago)
For those who don't agree, I understand. But, that is why he said that analysing other people handwriting gives them hope. Hope that they might have that in them and its your confidence that helps you to achieve that. He uses the famous people signatures and handwriting is to sort of like a guide. This and that is what they have in common and that subconsciously you or in fact other people have it.

That sugar story that you narrated was not from Ghandi's life... This happened in the life of Holy Prophet (PBUH).... The greatest leader... Not just the Man of Word but also a Man of Deeds..

The Gandhi story may have happened, but this happened when a boy's father asked the Prophet of Islam to talk to his boy to not eat honey. He asked him to bring the boy after 40 days, which is when he asked the boy not to eat honey too much, as he quit eating honey in that period himself. Most Muslims know this and some may have written about it below. It is easier to make it a Gandhi story perhaps =).

Whilst you *may* be able to tell a little bit about someone by their handwriting, I find this video quite akin to horoscopes, astrology, palm reading and the like.

If handwriting analysis/graphology has not yet been "verified" by modern western science, it likely will be in the near future, (in the same way that western medicine has only recently reversed its longstanding dismissal of the success rate of other ancient eastern practices, such as reflexology, acupuncture, meditation, etc., etc.

Hand writing is something that is quiet difficult to fake. It is like something within. like confidence, belief, conviction, etc.. Hand writing analysis on signatures is a science.

I didn't think it was as amazing as many other talks I've heard, probably because I didn't connect with the topic. But the man seems really good with the hope point, I loved the conclusion! And surprisingly the Gandhi storuly too

Utter bunk.
Sylvain Piche (6 months ago)
I knew someone who had learned that. Apparently there is some truth behind it. But honestly I think it is a bunch of BS. Why? Because my signature have change a couple of times in my lifetime and still do. I used to write it entirely, but now i end up making it shorter and shorter, to the point of not writing my last name, only the first letter and a bunch of ripples... lol. I think it only show i am becoming more and more lazy...

As unscientific and superstitious as I assume this to be on the one hand, it’s also interesting to think about how our subconscious mind may be relaying personality traits through our handwriting. A unique blueprint of our character? . . Hm

nice one TEDxTalk! can't wait to watch how to spot a leader based on their horoscope
Cyril Jayant (6 months ago)
I have changed my writing and learning to write cursive. How can it be compared to the writing analyzing? So the horoscope reading result is based on the belief that you choose.
