Graphology And The French

Graphology, or the analysis of handwriting, is still used widely by companies in France during the recruitment process of potential employees. In addition to the CV, personality tests and the interview, a potential candidate also has their handwriting analysed by professional graphologists. It is thought that a combination of these give a clear picture about the candidate and whether they are right for the job.

It is unclear why graphology is used so much in France as it is not common practice in the rest of the world.  One reason could simply be the fact that the graphology technique originated in France and was invented by a French Catholic priest called Jean-Hippolyte Michon.

Graphology is also used for assessing child development and spotting learning difficulties.
