Musings on "the bleedin' obvious"; views on the meaning of life, or anything else that takes my fancy.

The number of companies using graphologists, to assess job interview candidates, has been increasing steadily.

The companies believe that the study of handwriting can lead to a meaningful insight into a person's character and mental state.

Utter tosh!

They would be just as well served by hiring an astrologer to conduct a palm reading.

My advice to those of you attending job interviews is simple; if the company uses graphology as part of their interview technique, walk out and don't waste your time, the company clearly has no idea how to asses people and doubtless has a lousy HR record.
