In France Graphology is still actively used by some recruiters in order to attempt to evaluate applicants' personality from their handwriting (therefore covering letters in France are still handwritten in most cases as otherwise they could go to the trash).
Are there studies that can prove either that graphology is efficient or not?
For example here are examples:
- Could you (even without being conscious of it) have a prejudice about a person that will draw a circle, not a dot, when drawing the letters ‘i’ and ‘j’?
- Could you think that a person of which the writing is not easily readable that this person will have difficulties re-reading what they themselves wrote on scratchpad?
- Could you think of a person with a very regular, scholar, cursive script that the person does what they are told to do?
Here are some arguments that people in favour of graphology could have.
