Handwriting Analysis Used on Job Candidates

Your Two Cents: Hiring Based on Handwriting

Were you under the impression that handwriting analysis was a thing of the past? A company called Written Inc. would tell you that you're wrong, because handwriting reports "reveal the true personality traits" of job applicants. The company is dedicated to analyzing job candidates' handwriting for employers. They use a program called Candidate Insight Reporting and their website says it helps clients weed out the "bad apples, reduces turn-over rates, and reduces risk and liability."

Wondering how they get the written samples in the first place? Candidates give their consent by filling out (by hand, of course) the Sample Collection and Consent Form and are aware their writing will be analyzed.
