Where you sign your name

Recent research seems to show that where you sign your name on a form really affects the honesty of your responses. Signing at the start is much better than at the end.

The research says that people actually take more care over an unsigned form/document than one that is signed at the end! Should you get your customers to sign their contracts with you at the start rather than the end? Ditto employees?


Thanks to Tony Armstrong for providing me with this link.

    That is a really interesting concept and not one I have ever thought of before. It is a little like giving your full name on the phone – people feel you are being more open and honest in your dealings with them.
