Denis Mee-Lee, MD
There is hardly a human behavior more difficult to understand or predict than violence or dangerousness. This has been baffling and challenging to the criminal justice, social service and behavioral health fields. Some have even suggested that mental health experts are probably worse than the general public in predicting dangerousness. Valid and reliable tools have simply not been available, at least on a replicable and generalizable basis.

      Given how crucial this issue is to increasing numbers of individuals and families, agencies, and to society as a whole, it may be time to be adventuresome and creative in seeking alternative modalities that might increase our understanding of violence. We have little to lose. It may even be possible to improve our prediction capability to something better than might be achieved through random selection.

      It was approximately 15 years ago while Chief of the Hawaii State Mental Health Division that I was introduced to the capabilities of graphology and the special skills of Kimon Iannetta. It is difficult for me to say whether I was more surprised by graphology's potential, or by Ms. Iannetta's perceptiveness.

      At first I was quite skeptical. This skepticism was shared by the dozens of high-level psychiatric and psychological practitioners and administrators to whom I introduced both Kimon Iannetta and graphology, soon after my first exposure to it. I can say without exaggeration that the impact and impression upon my colleagues as surprisingly and uniformly positive. Despite the paucity of scientific investigation of this field, the clinical operational value was readily apparent. This positive response led to requests for Ms. Iannetta to conduct a series of graphology training seminars for mental health professionals.

      More importantly, a significant development from these initial explorations was a pilot study that specifically focused on the utilization of graphology in gaining a better understanding of dangerousness. This study began in the mid 1980's. It looked at 24 psychiatric inpatients, 12 who had a history of repeated criminally dangerous behavior. In evaluating the potential for dangerousness, two experienced graphologists were correct 95% of the time. The analysts seemed to be able to identify the method and type of crime and have an 81% accuracy rate in detecting which subjects had histories of suicidal gestures. It was particularly fortunate that two respected and research experienced psychologists, Dr. James Craine and Dr. Dennis McLaughlin, were willing to be part of this study and guide the scientific approach utilized.

      The preliminary findings reported in this document are astounding. The incorporation of a wealth of graphological material and interpretations provides an impressive and stimulating array of exciting information...

      This compendium of data and directions will undoubtedly be very provocative to the traditional evaluator and clinician.

      If it is possible to put bias and prejudice aside, I believe that the value of this particular tool in providing a better understanding of dangerousness will be astounding. I highly recommend that you study this wealth of information carefully and objectively so that we might seek some of the solutions to better understanding this complex aspect of human and societal behavior.

This work started initially as a research project to inquire into the possibility of using handwriting characteristics to identify psychiatric patients with violent tendencies.

James F. Craine, Ph.D.
      I am convinced that a person's handwriting is an excellent projective procedure, perhaps even the best projective procedure available today. Samples of handwriting are readily obtained and are thus immediately useful for analysis. It is clearly recognized that a person's handwriting is highly individualistic and that it reveals both conscious and unconscious aspects of personality.

      I found it valuable to question graphologist Kimon Iannetta as to what clues of dangerousness she found in each individual research case and to encourage her to identify any repeated signs or clusters of signs in the writings that contributed to her predictions. Watching this skilled graphologist at work, I had the distinct impression that if I were able to supply her with a number of handwriting samples from patients who were frequently prone to violent behavior, she would most likely improve upon her ability to recognize these types of individuals in a general population. I envisioned this as a valuable learning experience for her. I also saw that it would expand and improve upon her abilities in predicting possible violence as she had more and more experience with precisely specified kinds of cases.

      It also occurred to me that the use of graphology might be a valuable way to discover valid patterns and clues for any specific area being studied. In this instance we were aiming for the prediction of dangerousness in psychiatric patients, but these same techniques could perhaps be used to identify non-psychiatric dangerousness as well. It might also be possible to identify other specifically defined targets, such as who might be genuine suicide risks; other personality components such as creativity or special talents might also be recognized.

      When it became apparent that Kimon Iannetta could indeed identify dangerousness with considerable regularity, the question was then raised as to whether this recognition skill could be taught to others who might be called upon to assess possible dangerousness. Obviously health care professionals would not likely have the skills of a seasoned graphologist and they would probably not even know how to approach handwriting as a measurement tool. However, it seemed that we might simplify the procedure enough to produce a practical tool for use by health care professionals.

      This very time-consuming project has provided some valuable findings that could prove to be very helpful for the assessment of dangerousness. The problem immediately encountered when using handwriting analysis, however, is that graphological assessment can be an enormously complex task, and thus requires specialization. There is also a need for extensive research to further legitimize the serious use of graphology.

      In the present instance, predictive attempts were made on the basis of extensive study of precisely identified target cases (post-diction?) in conjunction with the use of statistical analysis. An attempt was made to provide a tool useful to graphologists and non-graphologists alike. The result is this manual.

As the head of a research unit I was asked to evaluate the prospects of using handwriting analysis to predict dangerousness of psychiatric patients. It was decided to use existing handwriting samples of psychiatric patients which gave no clue as to the dangerousness of the authors, and correlate their average rating, have two handwriting analysts blindly rate the degree of dangerousness of the patient authors, and correlate their average rating of dangerousness with the average rating of two psychologists who had the clinical records of the patients available. It was reasoned that if the handwriting analysts could statistically significantly predict the dangerousness of the clients, the traits which they used in their judgments could be identified, measured, and combined in some form of mathematical model which would estimate patient dangerousness with a yet higher correlation. An important side benefit would be that the handwriting traits identified should be clinically useful in the treatment of the clients.

      While the efforts from this endeavor were generally successful to a significant extent, several years passed from this initial formulation to the final publication of this manual. Hundreds of handwriting characteristics were evaluated empirically to determine they correlated with dangerousness ratings. Both the frequency and pronouncement (intensity) of the handwriting characteristics were evaluated. By using a theoretical formulation and combining the handwriting characteristics into a model based on classifying handwriting characteristics into signs of dangerousness and signs of inhibitors of dangerousness and multiplying some of the signs by handwriting characteristics which indicated that a person was capable of carrying out a behavior (called facilitators), the best prediction was achieved. Each handwriting characteristic was evaluated for its theoretical impact on prediction of dangerousness and the end result was a better fit of the predictive equation to dangerousness.

      The handwriting characteristics which follow are the characteristics which were discovered from the research project to be related to dangerousness. While it was found premature to combine the characteristics into a predictive model of dangerousness due to the heterogeneity of the patient populations, the potential for successfully doing this is quite reasonable.

"Danger Between the Lines is an extraordinary book that allows the readership to understand the relationship between handwriting characteristics and violent behavior. Highly recommended as an adjunct to comprehensive risk analysis and violence prediction."

"I have known Kim since the 1970's as a highly competent and well respected forensic professional. In several screenings for police officer evaluation, she was right on target compared to (1) psychological test outcomes, (2) Clinical form interviewing and (3) known history. For these reasons and others, I recommend her services without qualification. She is the best!"

What makes Danger Between the Lines stand out from other books of its genre is its scientific underpinnings. It is based on a carefully-controlled study conducted at Hawaii State Hospital. In this study estimates of dangerousness made by research psychologists, who had access to clinical information and hospital and police records, correlated at an amazing 0.001 level of statistical significance.

      These results clearly indicate that peoples potential for aggressive and violent behavior can be predicted from their handwriting characteristics with a high degree of certainty.

      In this study estimates of dangerousness made by research psychologists who had access to clinical information and hospital and police records correlated at an amazingly 0.001 level of statistical significance with those made by graphologists who made their estimates entirely on handwriting samples.

      Danger Between the Lines is outstanding for its ability to instruct even the neophyte and its fascinating insights into the minds and motives of many different individuals, both famous and infamous. In all this book makes for very interesting reading and should have wide appeal. I recommend it to anyone interested in psychology or wanting to learn an unobtrusive method for uncovering inclinations for violence.<

      For more than 16 years I have had the opportunity to work with Kimon Iannetta on issues of dangerousness in the work place. Her talent and expertise have consistently impressed me. As head of IBM's Pacific Area for Honolulu during the mid-1980's I hired Kim to assess an individual making threats to our facility. IBM sent several Security Specialists to Hawaii to oversee the situation. Kim's input to the Security team allowed a quick and successful resolution to a potentially volatile situation. Without Kim's analysis IBM would have spent significantly more time and money and may have even inflamed a controllable situation. The IBM Security Team was so satisfied with the results of Scott-Iannetta that they continued to use her skills across the United States in situation of potential dangerousness.

      When Danger Between the Lines was published I read it to increase my own understanding and expertise in factors of Dangerousness. In Danger Between the Lines, I found that Scott-Iannetta, Craine and McLaughlin have created a valuable and readily understandable process to help the reader identify potential dangerousness through handwriting analysis. This book is rich with examples and analysis that are both educational and fascinating. The formalization of Scott-Iannetta's techniques for assessment gives the reader a step by step guide to measure dangerousness. With violence an increasing concern in all areas of our lives I can think of no more important work than that of Scott-Iannetta, Craine, and McLaughlin and Danger Between the Lines. If you are in the fields of security, law enforcement, or psychology.

Danger Between the Lines, Kim Scott-Iannetta's revised reference manual, is so user friendly that I use it as a guide to validate what I'm considering with a certain patient. If I recognize many red flags as indicated in her book, I always have Kim do an assessment in addition to what I've determined, before making my final conclusion.

      I am, and have been a practicing psychiatrist - medical doctor, who works exclusively with patients in crisis situations (danger to self and others). For the last 25 years I've used Kim's Handwriting Analysis services. I count on her accurate feedback regarding potentially violent patients. She is uncanny in her assessments of their personality and character, and she can sometimes give me alternative ways of approaching patients. This allows me to deal with them more effectively and specifically tune into their particular disturbances.

      I recommend the reference manual HIGHLY... it's been a proven winner over the years! I bought the revised and expanded 3rd edition for use at work, and have another for reference at home. I expect this work will be a classic and indispensible for all those working with and concerned about violence.

"When I first started exchanging views with Kim on the Ramsey case I immediately realized that her approach to the study of the handwriting was something novel to me.

      Soon this new way of hers of assessing dangerousness and gathering information from any detail conquered my interest, so much so that a fruitful collaboration started.

"Danger Between the Lines" is a very useful digest of handwriting graphics which, when taken as clusters, can be symptomatic of dangerous behavior, or in contrast, show inhibiting counter tendencies. Recognizing these graphics are interpreted within the context of the overall expression of handwriting, Kim Iannetta's book highlights dangerous proclivities of which all analysts should be aware.

I have known Ms. Kimon Iannetta both professionally and personally for approximately four years and it is with great pleasure that I write this letter. Ms. Iannetta worked as a paid consultant, donating countless hours of her time. She assisted the staff of the Hawaii Paroling Authority (HPA) with handwriting analyses of over 25 inmates and parolees involved in our Cognitive Self-Change Program.

      I have worked with Ms. Iannetta as her student, friend and employer. In every capacity, she exhibited a caring approach to both staff and clients. Her demeanor was always professional, above reproach and demonstrated an understanding of the individuals and their needs. She is exceptionally gifted and works with groups of individuals very effectively.

      Ms. Iannetta's dedication to her profession, and her extensive knowledge of handwriting analysis was a great asset to our program. Her assessments were without judgment, which is essential to our population. The students in the HPA classes were thrilled with Ms. Iannetta and her level of involvement with them.

      The HPA Cognitive Self-Change Program was very lucky to have Ms. Iannetta's expertise, commitment and dedication to excellence. Her ability to provide accurately detailed, significant handwriting analyses was exceptional. Her charismatic interaction with clients, staff, friends, and students allowed them to feel comfortable, as well as challenged.

      We are extremely grateful to Ms. Iannetta's interest in our population, and her voluntary commitment to our clients.

Despite the seriousness of the title, Kimon Iannetta's book "Danger Between the Lines" holds enormous appeal for newcomers to graphology as well as to the experienced graphologist.

      A manual of graphology, rather than just another book about graphology, "Danger Between the Lines" is crammed with graphic illustrations and sound definitions.

      It is the only graphological manual I know of that is regularly updated. Samples of topical current handwritings are given together with many familiar classic writings and detailed explanations are provided for the reader.

      "DBTL", as this tome is more commonly referred to, combines the holistic and trait stroke approaches, and so sits comfortably for those trained in the IGA system. It is also extremely user-friendly, both in ease of reference and digestion of concepts.

      The book is the result of a unique study commissioned in the 1980's by the Hawaiian Authorities to find ways in which to identify those prisoners, convicted of violent crimes, who could be considered safe to release from the overcrowded prison populations to live in the community at large. This work is unique both in approach and also in that two medical professionals, Drs. James F Craine, and Dennis McLaughlin, both practising Consultant Clinical Psychiatrists specialising in Neuro-psychology and in Research, worked with a Graphologist, Kimon Iannetta, in order to assess and validate graphology as a diagnostic tool.

      Evaluation of signs is the key factor for analysis and this book sets out the formulae very clearly. Potential red flags, or danger signs, are explained and those signs, which either intensify or facilitate a danger indicator, are clearly listed and explained.

A brief example of the format of explanation is:
I-11 Consistent Midzone
Psychological Implications: Indicative of self-control, inner discipline, regularity and predictability. The writer is "on an even keel," socially and emotionally.
Stroke Description: Letter structures in the mid-zone are consistent in size, shape and form.

      This latest edition also provides an excellent index to each writing sample, additional appendices, and analyses. The written analyses are detailed, easy to follow and clearly explained. Each analysis encompasses both psychological and graphological implications. They include such writers Andrew Cunanan, suspected of killing fashion designer Versace; the writer of the Jon-Benet Ramsey note, and the terrorist, Timothy McVeigh.

"We live in a time when people throughout the world are both concerned and worried. There are school shootings, warnings about terrorism, and violence in every quarter of our world. People want to be safe and avoid those who could pose a threat to them. Our world has become so filled with violence that graphologists are often presented with golden opportunities. Those who can analyze handwriting can use their skills to determine whether or not people are dangerous. Perhaps the best book on the market to assess danger is Danger Between The Lines by Kimon Iannetta.

      At 400+ pages, this book is packed full of information. The book's subtitle (Reference Manual for the profiling of violent behavior) is a good summation of the volume's contents. This book does not tell people how to become an expert graphologist. It does, however, provide readers with the basic principles of handwriting. The main section of the book deals with the "33 primary indicators of dangerousness." These indicators are listed in abbreviated form and then further described by both "psychological implications" and an actual description of the handwriting formation. In many of the samples circles or arrows mark the shape being described.

      As any analyst knows, handwriting traits must be evaluated in light of the entire script. The material in this book observes this principle by listing traits that both facilitate and inhibit the 33 danger traits. In the appendix a formula is given so graphologists will have an accurate means of assessing the danger traits, the facilitating traits, and the inhibiting traits found in a person's handwriting. The appendix also has a quick reference guide that lists all the traits plus a short description of what the writing formations look like. Each sample is listed at the back of the book as well as all the pages where the samples appear. This allows readers to study any of the samples from many different perspectives. This book even contains brief personality sketches of the people who penned the samples. This feature is especially nice.

      At a cost of $75 (this was the price I paid) this volume may be one of the more expensive books that an analyst buys. When some see the price tag their first question may be, "Is this book worth this much money?" The answer to this question depends upon the analyst.

      If someone wants a graphology book that can be read and digested in a day, purchasing this volume will be a waste of money. This book is also not the right tool for someone who is trying to learn how to analyze handwriting. This book is a literal step-by-step manual for graphologists who want to identify people who have a high potential for dangerous behavior. Given our current culture, this area of study should be of interest to everyone who is a graphologist.

      Making a mistake in an analysis can have profound consequences. Wrong interpretations in the area of violence can be especially bad. Failing to identify someone as a potentially violent person or misclassifying a person as violent when such is not the case can lead to irreparable harm. If analysts will use the information in this book they will have the right tool to help them draw accurate conclusions concerning the potential for dangerous behavior.

      If you are a serious handwriting analyst this book should be on your "must have" list. Being familiar with the information in this book may help you save a life or prevent someone from being seriously harmed."
