Graphology Response

     Graphology is the idea that your handwriting can tell people things about your personality. For example, if your letters are sloppy, that could be interpreted as you being a unorganized person or if you write your letters big that could be seen as you having a big ego. Despite being debunked by researchers, graphology is still being used at a professional level. Some corporations will use it as a part of the hiring process. It’s a rather scary thought to think that someone’s job application was denied just because the way they spaced their letters was interpreted as them being lazy.

  1. The comment that you made about the job applications really struck me. I would be devastated if I were denied a job because they saw my handwriting as threatening. There are a lot of situations where this can come into play that I did not consider. Research has proven this theory incorrect, so it should not be used against people in that way.
