    What are your thoughts on graphology? Not to be confused with hand writing analysis which is used by the police to investigate if the letters from two notes match each other, but actually the psychology behind writing...as in the slant, the positioning of writing, the neatness, certain hooks in crossing "t" or forming "y" 's letters and such.

    My understanding is that the alleged insights into character that can be formed from such study does not stand up to close scrutiny. If pressed I could likely find some research to support my understanding.

    OK, the first one I looked at here had this to say:
    Hence, we find ourselves compelled to conclude that it is graphology, rather than just our small sample of graphologists, that is invalid. This conclusion is based not only on empirical results but on a theoretical analysis as well.
