I like to believe that Lord ganesha is one of the most important Gods of Handwriting/Graphology.
Here is a story of Mahabharata. Maharsishi Vyasa thought of writing this beautiful realistic epic: Mahabharata. He requested Ganesha to write down the verses as he goes on composing it. The then young Ganesha put his condition that Vyasa should not stop in between and keep telling him the verses continuously. Vyasa agreed with one condition that Ganesha should write only with full understanding of the verses. Ganesha too agreed to this condition. Maharishi Vyasa was smart enough to put this condition. The verses were so meaningful that Ganesha required some time to understand each of them as he wrote. This slowed his writing. Vyasa could borrow that time to compose next verses. There came a moment when Vyasa was so fast that Ganesha could not find a replacement for his broken feather pen. To keep his promise of uninterrupted writing Ganesha broke one of his tusks and used it as a pen.
Let me explain why He is the God of Handwriting.
While he was writing, he was understanding what he was writing. And what was he writing? Mahabharat, the epic that is about so many personalities, so many human behavioral traits. In fact, it is said that the Kauravas are our desires and Pandavas are our five senses under the control of the Lord Krishna.
Each character in Mahabharata, big or small, is a symbol of some human behaviour. Mahabharata is full of emotions. I must also mention the authority of Maharishi Vyasa. His name itself literally means the diameter. The diameter of a circle encompases everything. So his epic also covered all types of people and personalities, from Bhisma to Abhimanyu and so many more. Vyasa also means the compiler. Maharishi Vyasa has compiled every aspect of human nature in Mahabharata.
And Ganesha was understanding each and every word of this knowledge while writing. Ganesha demonstrated his authority in handwriting and understanding personalities both at the same time. This is the reason I like to believe that ganesha is the God of Graphology.
Just imagine this, Maharishi Vyasa is dictating verses of Mahbharata to Shree Ganesha where he is telling him about Sanjay giving a running commentary to Dhritarashtra about the first day of war on Kurukshetra wherein, Krishna is enlightening Arjuna by telling the Bhagvad Gita.

Multi-tasking means performing more than one task at a time.
Multi-tasking is a concept from computation and microprocessors. It is a concept popularised by the computer world. Multi-tasking differentiates humans and computers. A computer can perform many activities simultaneously and switch from one activity to other resuming it from exactly where it was left earlier.
Multi-tasking is good for computers because they are meant to do that.Human multi-tasking is assumed to be a desired trait. Especially in the corporate world, multi-tasking managers are considered more efficient. The youngsters of Generation Net want to be more and more efficient at multi-tasking. We see students texting, surfing the Web, listening to music, and so on while attending a lecture, or working on homework.
Can handwriting analysis reveal whether a person is good at multi tasking?
Before we find out from our handwriting whether we are good at multi-tasking, we should first know what the behavioral experts say about multi-tasking. Is multi-tasking a good trait to have?
David Meyer, a cognitive scientist at the University of Michigan, says that: "When you perform multiple tasks that each require some of the same channels of processing, conflicts will arise between the tasks, and you're going to have to pick and choose which task you're going to focus on and devote a channel of processing to it."
Human brain works on tasks in a linear way so it is not made for working on many things simultaneously. It can take only one intellectual task at a time. Of course it can do non-intellectual tasks at the same time. Chewing a gum and walking at the same time- as David Meyer explains it.
According to Karin Foerde, Barbara J. Knowlton, and Russell Poldrack, multi tasking in learning is not effective at all, as compared to single learning activity.
Is multi-tasking not a desired or efficient trait then?
I suggest that multi-tasking can still be effective if you understand where to use it and where not to use it.
Some activities can be performed by the brain in a simultaneous way but some activities when clubbed together will be affected due to continuous partial attention. The attention given to the task and the cognitive learning will be superficial in most of the cases.
This can be seen in the handwriting:
Connecting the crossbar of t to the previous or next letter shows the habit of multi-tasking.
But these methods of connecting the t cross bar show counter productive and qualitatively less efficient multi-tasking.
Genuine multi tasking ability is said to exist if the only t cross bar connections seen in the handwriting are for two consecutive t's whenever they appear in the writing.
So change the way you do multi-tasking by changing the way you write. You will be genuinely efficient at your work.
