Post #1 Graphology

    Before taking this class, I believe that handwriting can reveal the personality of a person. I am surprised by the result that graphology is one of the least effective predictors. When I was younger, I watched a lot of movies with detectives using graphology to predict the personality of the criminals and solved the case. Sadly, a lot of people still believe in this kind of pseudoscience, for instance, our president.

  1. I am a bit skeptical about handwriting predicting someone's personality. But, I did see that Trump tweeted that and found it comical. As for the criminal cases, I am almost positive they still use graphology but that is to understand ransom notes or written manifestos for big cases. It is not really used for personality as much as it is comparison and language.
