Unfortunately it appeared from the show that Auntie Beeb was promoting the daft pseudoscience that is handwriting analysis. Even worse, they seemed to have realised what they’d done, but did nothing to correct themselves. I was a bit disturbed about this, because I worry about people having to submit their handwriting for analysis in job selection. This is simply wrong, because handwriting has nothing useful to say about job performance, so has absolutely no place in a recruitment situation. In an economic climate where so many are desperate to get jobs, I hate to think of unfair practices standing in the way of deserving candidates.
With my work hat on, I wrote about what silly nonsense it all is. You can read the blog here.
