Post 1: Graphology

Graphology is the study and analysis of the physical characteristics of one's handwriting that has been claimed to be able to identify the writer, what the writer's mental state was at the time of writing, and what kind of personality the writer has. This analysis is done by examining a lot of characteristics of person's handwriting, including; word and letter spacing, writing on a slant or not, the amount of pressure on the paper, and the size of the letters. The term graphology dates back to the 17th century. This method of studying an individual's personality through handwriting has proved to be very ineffective when it comes to the accuracy of the method.

An example of graphology that I found is in the second Sherlock Holmes movie titled "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows."
