Hey, what's the Accountancy industry like these days with regards to
employment possibilities?, is it as bad as the I.T industry??.

Never heard of a "Graphology test" David, could you please explain
what this test is all about??.

Never heard of a "Graphology test" David, could you please explain
handwriting analysis.

Methinks the responder has an axe to grind.

Yup. If it says on the application form that you must write about an often
irrelevant topic in your own handwriting, the employer will take the
handwriting to a little old lady with a crystal ball on her table. She will
look at it and proclaim, if your t's and l's slope at different angles, that
you unreliable and dishonest and put the application form into the bin
without looking at irrelevancies such as qualifications or experience.

I don't bother applying on such forms for two reasons. One, I always fail
graphology tests (my handwriting is quite legible, but slopes and spaces
vary), and two I wouldn't want to put my career in the hands of people who
take such things seriously. Maybe next year you'll have to be a Pisces to
get a promotion!

I've seen this before, but it isn't to divine character from your
penmanship. It's to get a "known", good copy of your handwriting into
their files, and in sufficient quantity, so that it can be compared to
your answers on different parts of the test (before or after your lunch-
break) or even later, should you join their firm.

Lol. Yes, and the other reason they sometimes use to justify insisting on
getting the handwriting sample is because they must send it to an expert to
make sure that it is legible. I was actually talking about the handwriting
sample they get on application forms.

It is up to you what you want to believe.
