Post #3 (Graphology)

Graphology is when one uses handwriting to determine personality and character. This depends on the word and letter spacing, writing slant, pressure on the paper and letter size. When looking at one's trait, depending on the word and letter spacing, if it's written wide one is isolated or lonely. If it is crowded handwriting that means one is desperate for companionship. Writing in big letter size that implies one is confident and a big thinker. The history behind graphology of using handwriting to determine personality traits dates all the way back to the 17th century. Graphology did originate itself in 1868 and various systems of graphology do exist. Graphology is still growing worldwide Studies show graphology is one of the least effective predictors when compared to other personnel selection methods. Other studies have concluded that continued use of graphology as a means of personnel selection results in large financial losses to the organization.
