applicants' honesty or self-

SELFREPORTS- HOW RELIABLE ARE THEY? Althoughself-reportshavetheir placeand havesomevalue,they shareinherentand significant weaknesses: 1. THEY ALL RELY ON THE HONESTYOF THE TEST-TAKER,(if the applicantlies or misrepresentsthemselves,the test resultsare useless) OF THE TEST-TAKER,(many 2. THEY ALL RELY ON THE SELF-UNDERSTAT{DING peoplehavefalsebelietsabout how well likedthey are, how friendly,how hardworking,how creativethey are, not to mention modest peoplewho understatetheir skills. Obviouslyif your self-perceptionsare off, and many of us are, then the answersto the test questions are alsoinaccurate. THE QUESTION,(many 3. THEY ALL RELY ON THE TEST-TAKERUNDER.STANDING applicantsguessor don't understandwhat the is askingof them) 4. THEY ALL RELY OI{ THE TEST-TAKERTAKTilG THE SURVEY SERTOUSLY, (applicantsand employeeswho take thesesurveysoften don't care about taking tests and give little attentionto how they answerquestions) 5. THEY ALL EVALUATEONLY A FORTION OF THEIR pERSONALITY,(so you give a salesaptitudetest but it doesn'tevaluateif they are emotionallyunstablg etc.). The above list demonstrateswhy self-repofts are called self-repofts. How much weight If an shouldan employerplaceon the output which originatedfrom the applicantthemselves? then interuiewing, about themselves on the self-repo4 employertrustswhat an applicantsays backgroundchecks,drug testing,etc. wouldall be unnecessary. Obviously, the results have some utility but can hardly be given serious merit. Why not simply just ask the percon if they are honest, good with peopb, well liked, competent and so on? From many yeans experience, we Gantell you that most applicants will tell an interviewer (through a self-report or intewiew) that they are: creative,honestand seekchallenge.Of coursean applicant'sclaimto Teamplayers,hardworking, doesn't mean they are true; ask any employer. these attributes Researchsubstantiatesthat the high job turnovercompaniesexperienceis becauseemployeesdo not have the above qualitiesthat they claim,or that they are not matchedto the right job or job knowledge.In sum, PEOPLEARE OFTENEMPLOYED company,not becauseof insufficient AND THEN GET FIRED DUE TO PERSONALITY OF THEIR LOOKSAND EXPERIENCE, CONFLICTS.Personalityis o<actlywhat handwritinganalysisevaluatesto help companyand employeeincreasethe chancesof the right match. at some point in seeking self-reportsand questionnaires Most of us have taken psychological employmentand one can easilydiscernwhat the surueyis attemptingto learnaboutthem. Let's face it, what salesapplicantwouldn'tknow whichanswerto put on this typicalsurueyquestion?


Wouldyou rather: a) stay home and watch TV, b) go meet new people?OBVIOUS!!!! INTERVIEWING: Interviewing is necessary,but it is completelysubjective!Is there anyone out there that really completelynot be affected believesthat the interviewprocessis objective?Couldany intervierrrer and so on? The expressions mannerisms, by an applicant'sappearance,attractiveness,habits, being overweight,too tremors, facial hand shake, a sweaty reality is peopleare eliminatedfor: pefume and a thousand good too much looking, too socks, mismatched short, unusualhaircuts, job is for the interyiew for a main r@son The didnt realise. the applicant that attributes other "look." interviewerto determineif you havethe right

Let's take a test. Which personbelow would you hire as a PR? A) Sam: Sam is 5d black, has a glass eye, is short and has no formal education. Or: B) Naomi: Tina is 3d Black, beautiful, ser<yand has a lovely smile. won't admit it, but looksare The truth is, Naomiwill almostalwaysget the job. Mostinteruiewers but we do it. In criticallWe all discriminate; often it is wrong,it is often illegal,unprofessional, "Sam" is really Sammy the above er<ample,Sam would have been the better choice.You see, who couldcertainlybe a good PRfor ANY DavisJunior,one of the world'smosttalentedindividuals Companyl Naomi, is a beautiful international model, but has been court twice recently fur physicallyabusingher staff,and is knownfor her erraticbehaviour. Handwriting analysis cannot determine: age, race, religion, attractivenessr or gender! It is completely objective: measuring the personality of the applicant. I don't know how one coutd evaluate a job applicant more impaftially than by using an objective device such as one's handwriting. PROFILEOUT-OF.TOWNAPPLICANTSWITHOUT HAVING TO FLY THEM IT{ Manycompaniestoday interuiewjob applicantsfrom distantcitiesand will pay the expensesof flying in out-of-town applicantsfor face-to-faceinterviews.This generatescoststo the company of air fare, hotelstays,managementtime, pickingup and returningapplicantsto airpoftor taxis, car rental fares, meals,etc. you spendall that If your companydoes this, considerobtaininga handwritingsampleBEFORE the right person.Another money and time to insure that the applicantis temperamentally advantageis when and if the companydoes conducta face-to-faceinteryiew,the employerwill alreadyhavea completeprofileof the applicantand know exactlywhat talentsand shortcomings to look fur! IS SIMPLE: THE PROCESS 1. Faxour HandwritingInstructionspageto the applicantand askthem to fax their handwriting sampledirectlyto us. (Originals are ALWAYS preferable though PLEASE) 2. Your companyfaxes to us the Order Form identiffingthe applicant'sname and which profiletype you require.


3. The profile resultsare e-mailed,faxed etc back to the employerwith relevantpersonality informationabout applicant. DISCOVERAPPLICANTSSTRENGTHS& WEAKNESSESBEFOREINTERVIEWING Interuiew tool and guide (askingthe right questionsduringthe interuiew) Employersand interviewers frequentlyinform us that interviewingjob applicantsis a tedious,no fun, non-profitable,labour intensiveprocessthat resultsin a 'tblur" of interviewscreatinga near impossibleway of separatingone applicantfrom another.Lastweek an interviewertold me, "I rememberone of the applicantswas not willingto work Saturdays,but for the life of me, I can't rememberwhichpersonit was; I am so tired of interviewingthat I'm just goingto pickone." Mostcompanieshavenumerousmanagersinterviewbeforehiring,and they oftendo not agreeon who to employ.Not only is this expensivebut unproductive withoutthe aid of an objectivetool. Beforeyou waste time and money interuiewingevery Tom, Dick & Harriet,we rtrommend using you interuiew.Everydaycompaniesunknowinglyeliminate handwritinganalysisprocessBEFORE job applicantsfor weakreasons:typingerroron resum6,livetoo far away,too young, outstanding inadequateexperience,too many resumesto sort through,so they grab the top five resum6sand interuiewonly them. The problemwith traditionalinterviewingis that it requiresa lot of time AND you interviewthe bad with the good, muchlike the labourof panningfor gold. You haveto find the good applicantsfasterthan this if you want to be competitive.Rememberyou waste your time and the longer it takes you to find quality applicants,the more time your competitorhas to find them too. OUR HANDWRITINGANALYSISAPPROACHIS THE IDEAL METHOD FOR SORTING THROUGHMORETTIAN10 APPLICANTSAT A GIVEN TIME. This is how it works: In your newspaperadvertisement,requesta handwrittencover lefter along with their resume.If you are usinga recruiter,havethem collecta handwritingsample(contentsdo not matter).(Many of our creativeclienb have applicanbhand write answersto questionssuch as, "describeyour idealjob" or "how wouldyou handlean unrulycustomer." The applicantsanswersto these quetions give us the handwritingsamplewe require and their answersmay even help you to understandthem better.)You then fax the handwritingsampleto us and we sort the applicantsinto 3 generalcategories:the outstanding, the questionable and the time-wasters. You interyiewONLYqualityapplicanb.Nowthat is a good useof your time! Results in one day! One clientfoundtheir top salespefformerwhile interviewing for a secretary!Withoutour profile, you can imaginethe interuiew:"So how fast do you type?Do you enjoy filing?Wrongquestions to aska personwith salespotential;but then, how couldthe interuiewerhaveknown??? Profiling service providerc: therapist, baby-sitter, landscaperc, roommates, accountant, al*orney etc. Otherthan profilingthe traditionaljob applicantone thinksof applyingat a company,our personal and corporateclientsoften profiletheir personalemployeesand those who stronglyaffecttheir lives.

Many of our clients have profiled their spouseor significantother. We have often profiled ex-spousesto find patternsof mistakesone makesin selectingspousesand provideprofessional counselingon how to preventone from makingthe same marriagemistake,providinginsight into why the mistakeswere made. We can profile one's psychotherapistto insure that the therapist possessesthe right personality and skillsto helptheir patientimprove. & TEAMS EMPLOYEES Improve teamwork: discover both individual & team strengths & weaknesses The majordifferencebetweenone companyand it's competitorsis not so often products& services as it is their people.Usinghandwritinganalysisprofilesto understandthe executiveteam, sales teams,managersor any group of employeeshas tremendousadvantagesnot possiblefrom other sources. self-reportsuryeys,a handwritingis near impossibleto manipulateto Firsf unlikepsychological producethe resultsone wants,and it doesn'trely on others'opinionsaboutthemselvesor others you will fiorthe as in feedbackteam buildingbe impartial.With self reportsor feedbacktechniques most part only revealwhat the team memberswant you to know about themselvesand others; it will have somevalue, but the resultsare hardly objective.

One of our clienb discoveredthat their most creative worker was not even invited to their managementimbizoOR Bosberaad!Why? She was a secretary!Companiesunfortunatelysee employeesas their job title and often can not recognizeone's hiddentalentsor interests.This tool bringsto the surfacetalentsas well as limitationsof the staff. Improve employee performance through greater self underctanding & one-on-one consultation with me. Mostof our clientssubmitwritingsamplesof existingemployeesfur a host of reasons.Example: A man who had sold computersfor a major computerwholesalerfor 8 yearsappliedto be a sales managerat his companywhen the positionbecameopen.After an analysisof his writing,it was


discoveredhe was befter suitedto directsalesand would probablynot enjoy managingothers, (excellentclosingskills,but not team-oriented nor tolerantof others). The companyasked us to explainthese findingsto him. During the consultation,it was revealed "more that the REALreasonhe wanted the promotionwas to prove to his wife that he was many successful than herfather."It is amazingthe real reasonspeoplepursuejobs. Unfoftunately, to the personor company. reasonsare not advantageous One of the best ways to improve employee performanceis to shape the job around the temperamentof the employee,not the otherway around.Yet despitethis, manycompaniesinsist often of no interest which containrequirements on fiorcingan employeeto fulfill job descriptions to the employee,or worseyet beyondthe skillof the employee. Gain insight before promoting or transferring employees a handwritinganalysisis Before promoting,firing or altering an employee'sresponsibilities essentialto understandthe implicationsof the mix betweenpersonand job. Many employers wronglybelievethat if one hasexperienceand is skilledin a job, that they are as a resultsuited suggeststhat 80o/oof workersare misemployed!!! to that job. Wrong!Research Soccer One gentlemanwho submiftedhis writing for analysisyearsago had beena professional player for a major team. He was physicallygifted, talented, healthy, strong and had soccer experiencesincehe was eight. The problem:soccerdid not bring him closerto his true passion,beinga gospelpreacher.For a personto be happyand successful in theirjob, it requires:skill,knowledgeANDinterestor passion. profesional player but not necessarily happy. football mightbe very successful, You see,a Certainlya professionalsoccerplayercould dig ditchesbetter than most of us but becauseof that truth, doesit meanhe shouldbe diggingditches?Manyemployeescando a goodjob, but are not as happyas they couldbe, or are doinga poorjob becausethey might be in the wrongjob. Manyof us have heardthe adageof the PeterPrinciple,"that peopleare promotedto their level and employeesalikebelievethat a promotionis of incompetence." This is all too true. Companies the best reward a companycan bestow upon a successfulemployee.Nothingfaster will destroy the effectivenessand happinessof an employeethan over-promoting. Once done, the result is often a depressedfeeling of failure and an employeewho cannot gracefullyreturnto their once"lowered"position.If you matchthe interestsand abilitiesto the job, you have a correctlyplaced person.Periodicre-evaluations (every coupleof years) can people change over time. reaffirmthe matchas can of an employeeof why they haveor havenot Consultations can oftenyielda betterunderstanding Througha consultation, in differentaspectsof their currentand pastemployment. beensuccessful into strengths,to understandwho in they can better understandHOWto turn their weaknesses the companythat can countertheir shortcomings. For example,one salespersonthis afternoontold us that she is great at selling,but cannotstay We explainedto both her and her employerthat organised.Shefelt frustratedand incompetent. strong salestypes frequentlyare more scatteredand emotional.To have an assistantto provide skillsfor her wouldallowher to focuson salesonly ratherthan constantlybeing the organisational pressuredto peform duties beyond her personality.Peoplewould do well to evaluatetheir employeesand themselvesby their abilities,interestsand limitationsand not by their education, experienceand appearance.


Profile good & poor staff; Create'success Model" for future use in employment strategy What is the ideal purposeto interyiew?Stated simply, it is for purposeof speculatingif the job applicantmatchesthe successfulemployeemore than the failedemployeesin a particularjob.

TRADITIONAL PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENTS AND HANDWRITINGANALYSIS Pqychologists whospecialise in personality testinghavecollaborated withHandwriting Analysis In onestudyit wasshownthatthecorrelation expertsin a numberof studies. betweenhandwriting analysis(HWA)and the standardMMPI(Myers-Briggs) psychological testwasveryhigh. HWAis the combination with the empiricalstudyof of modernneuro-sciences personality; over the years,behavioural scientists and Handwriting expertshave neuro-muscular categorised tendencies as theyarecorrelated with specific observablepersonality traits.
