Graphology is the study of handwriting and handwriting analysis, and is now an accepted and increasingly used technique for assessment of people in organizations. Considered to be an effective and reliable indicator of personality and behavior, graphology has become a useful tool for many organizational processes including: recruitment, interviewing and selection, team-building, counseling, and career-planning. Here’s a cool chart of some basic “graphology” indicators.
Many court cases have included elements of handwriting analysis over the years. We have seen it most recently with the case of Robert Durst. Durst is the billionaire real estate mogul who has slipped in and out of law enforcement’s cross-hairs since the disappearance of his first wife in New York, back in 1982. After the murder of his neighbor in Texas, and death of friend, Susan Berman, the District Attorney’s office has employed handwriting analysis as one of the links in this decades long case. Durst’s bizarre case inspired the HBO documentary “The Jinx”, and is currently being tried in Los Angeles.
So what does your handwriting say about you?
