Handwriting analysis is mentioned as one of those areas that may be useful in "reading" the minds of others and determining their personality and motivations. With enough data and computer correlation it is possible that aspects of handwriting could provide additional information about a person similar to reading facial expressions. As of now handwriting analysis is considered by many as a "pseudoscience" and "worthless" endeavor. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphology) My recollection, however, is that the French have used it for hiring people in sensitive positions–such as banking. The President has released his signed tax return and the large initial letters of B and O may indicate a large ego and perhaps someone having a quick temper if those letters (ego) are "punctured". http://handwritinguniversity.com/barackobama/ From Paul Ekman—"If I was starting all over, I would look at handwriting. Everybody thinks that's nuts. It's a personal product, and I'll bet you there are some things in it. Of course, there are people who think they can get a lot from handwriting. I would start by studying them and seeing, scientifically, whether it's really valid, and seeing whether I can unpack it. It would have the great benefit that if you succeed — it's high-risk — but if you succeed, then you're the pioneer that gets it all started." http://globetrotter.berkeley.edu/people4/Ekman/ekman-con5.html
