Graphology is the study and analysis of human handwriting with the intent of assessing a person's psychological state. Handwriting experts are technically known as forensic document examiners.

Some Graphologists believe details like spacing of words, dotted "i's" and crossed "t's", could reveal unconscious mental functions.

As an example it is said that: Hillary Clinton is smart and forceful, John McCain is proud but has a volatile temper, and Barack Obama is a diplomat who deals well with different people and situations. [1]

Neuroscientist Barry Beyerstein (1996) considers the majority of the notions of graphologists to be no more than sympathetic magic.
