I agree you can tell something about a person but it is not a lot, nothing to really define his or her character.
in psychological terms yes a lot can be said just by looking at someone's handwriting. for instance short handwriting is a sign of the person being less confident.
That's like saying you can tell a lot from a person by how much weight they can lift, or how efficiently they run. If you looked at my hand writing and tried to judge me you'd think I have the intelligence of a nine year old since my hand writing hasn't improved since then. And if you then walked away we would never have a conversation about quantum mechanics, neuroscience, objectivist philosophy, the role of art in society, the nature of comedy, ancient Athenian culture, the coming technological singularity, the fictional nature of god or any of the other intellectual topics I've consumed over the years. And the fault would be yours for being so arbitrary in the way you frame your judgements.
You can pretend you can learn things about a person in arbitrary ways, but the only great way to get to know a person is to have a conversation with them.
