According to Wikipedia, the scientific community doesn’t really believe in it.
The same article also states that in Cameron v Knapp, 137 Misc. 2d 373, 520 N.Y.S.2d 917 (Sup. Ct. N.Y. Co. 1987) the Supreme court rejected graphology as psychological testimony.December 6, 2011 12:27 am at 12:27 am #833174MichaelCMember

Well what do you think is a better way to increase self-esteem, learning a new skill, making a new friend, doing a chesed well or changing the way you cross your t’s ?December 6, 2011 1:11 am at 1:11 am #833176ronrsrMember
no, you can tell the broad parameters of a personality by a person’s handwriting.
the best application of graphology I have ever heard of was my cousin wrote to Ben Gurion in the 1960’s when she was first visitig Israel. She told him she was a graphologist (she was, as an act i the Catskills) and offered to do a reading for the retired prime minister.
He invited her to his cottage on Sde Boker and she got to meet the great man himself, all in exchange for a graphological analysis.December 6, 2011 1:51 am at 1:51 am #833177HaLeiViParticipant
It is not a paranormal concept. It is based on psychology. However, many of those that are into it are also into palm reading, which is a paranormal concept.
The idea behind it is that your personality shows out in all your actions. The way you walk says a lot about you, as does the door, coat hanger, pen color, paper size or seat row, that you choose. Something as open as a handwriting has so much room for your personality to make its path.
