Graphology is the study and analysis of human handwriting with the intent of assessing a person's psychological state. This is not to be confused with forensic document examination, which involving determining the authenticity of handwriting evidence, and similar tasks.[1]

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. [2]

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