A couple of weeks ago The Today Programme broadcast an item about how a group of psychologists had discovered that people who prepared job applications by hand were more likely to lie in them than people who made applications through online forms. Today invited an “expert” onto the air to discuss this finding: a graphologist. She spooned out the usual pseudoscientific drivel. How pleased I was to read this story today, illustrating (as if we needed more evidence) the uselessness of many journalists and all graphologists.
