The Theory and Practice of Graphic Rectification by Bernadette Brady
One of the single biggest problems with rectification is the astrologer's subjectivity. As soon as we make a decision based on our own astrological interpretations, we are projecting our own chart onto the person and so will see our astrological opinion of the client rather than the client's internal reality. One of the important points of Graphic Rectification is that the astrologer is eliminated from the process as much as possible.

In addition, pressure can be removed from the astrologer's shoulders if the actual quest for the birth time is abandoned. This may seem a strange comment but if you can approach a rectification not trying to find the birth time but rather the chart with which one can work for predictive reasons, you have a better chance of success. One would like to think that the chart which is yielding good predictive results is also the birth time, but in most cases the astrologer and the client will never know and thus I feel it is better to let go of the "birth time" hunt and concentrate on finding a chart that has been generated by the client's history. For that is exactly what graphic rectification is best at, letting the client's history create a chart.
