WriteMatch review

WriteMatch is another HOAX in the Online Dating Industry, because:

1) it assess personality with an ipsative instrument, results are a written report.

The personality traits WriteMatch assess are "home grown", not the standardized ones of a normative test as the Big5 inventory or the 16PF5

2) WriteMatch can not express your compatibility with prospective partners with a number.

3) When you complete the handwriting test, you will see a screen saying:

"Understanding Personality & Compatibility
WriteMatch Personality Scoring System identifies a set of your key personality traits that can be compared to the personality traits of your friends, family members, boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, etc. This comparison will provide insights about yourself and about others that you care about.
In addition to your unique personality traits, there are many important components that must exist for two people to be compatible. These compatibility variables found in the WriteMatch Compatibility Scoring System include: Disposition, Sexual Interest & Energy / Emotional Capacity, Emotional Expression, Emotional Maturity, Good Will, and Chemistry.
One's Disposition, Sexual Interest & Energy / Emotional Capacity, Emotional Expression, and Emotional Maturity can be assessed through one's handwriting. The closer these variables are between two people, the higher the success rate for maintaining a long-term relationship. Each of these compatibility components will be covered in your WriteMatch Personality and Compatibility Profile.
Good Will and Chemistry are other important compatibility variables that cannot be measured through one's writematch that are also important in determining the stay power in a long-term relationship.
Good Will is the level of belief one has in the relationship. The stronger one's Good Will , the greater the chance of withstanding not only the good times, but the tough times throughout the relationship.
Chemistry is not something that can be clearly defined. It is an intangible attraction between two people that is a very important variable in most successful relationships."

WriteMatch speaks about 2 invented ("Good Will" and "Chemistry") variables but "cannot be measured through one's writematch".
