One of The Career Profiler’s many skills is handwriting analysis. She recently came across a handwriting sample of an employee at financial planning firm. This sample displayed unique handwriting. It was significantly different than the norm.
Most college-aged women’s (the age range of this employee) handwriting shows that they are warm, caring, careful to be accepted, and intelligent. But in this particular handwriting sample, The Career Profiler saw what she called as aggressive intelligence. The handwriting indicated an intelligence that was sharp and highly perceptive – more so than any other sample she’d seen. It demonstrated the writer critically analyzed every concept, idea, opinion, and piece of data. This analysis can be done
automatically, as an instinctive response. With these analysis skills, the employee could easily find flaws in data. This is a talent any employer, especially a financial services company, would love to hire. Or is it?
What’s “Wrong” with That?
The problem was, there was one particular letter in her handwriting that indicated she would use information to her advantage at the expense of others. With a high level of character, this person would be an opportunist. But if her character were of an average or low level, this person would be cunning and deceitful.
What would this look like at work? She would see a weakness in a work relationship and take advantage of it in some way. If she disliked someone, she would exploit that person’s weakness to gain the upper hand – a promotion, or even secure her adversary’s firing. If her work involved handling money, she might quite naturally take the path of embezzlement. Of course, this boils down to a character issue, but it was through handwriting analysis that The Career Profiler could alert both the employee and her employer of this personality tendency.
