A graphologist's report for Hedda Morrison, typed in German in black ink. Handwritten at the top left corner is 'Peking, [hia?]:1843'. A further handwritten note in German is at the bottom of the last page of the report. This is a type of psychological appraisal. It says, in translation, essentially, that the subject is very intelligent. She thinks more abstractedly than concretely. It is easy for her to think about problems and to analyse different thoughts, but not to think straight. She is extremely concentrated on the essential things of life, so that she totally forgets the other things. She needs to complete the essentials to feel good. It is easy for her to conform, because of her humility. She works fast but often not thoroughly enough. She is a very sensitive person, only concerned with her own feelings. Her weakness is her uncertainty and lack of will.
Produced in Peking, 1943.
Gift of Mr Alastair Morrison, 1993
