Handwriting vs. Typing

Lol, I think graphology is mostly pseudoscience though. It doesn't really reflect a person's personality as some people believe.

Yes, maybe there are some truths that can be extracted from one's writing style, but thinking that a long lower-case "g" means that a person likes to help people is almost the same as someone who believes in, say, astrology or palm-reading one's future. Such connections are pseudo-scientific or they are questionable at the very least, as far as I know. And of course, some things might be true simply by coincidence.

Edit: I've also created a thread on this particular subject. Here's the link although it is 5 years ago:

RE: Handwriting vs. Typing
I have a typing-intensive job and find it easy to compose business correspondence, non-fiction and most types of fiction at the keyboard when at home.

For writing things that are personal and emotional, though, I often get a mental block and it's easier to just scrawl out the thoughts longhand on a sheet of paper. My handwriting is sufficiently messy that when writing out something for someone else I usually print it instead.

There's a pic floating around here of my Lego creation. In it, you can see my handwriting.

That was one of the two reasons I wasn't let skip 1st class in primary school.
You see, one thing is: I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing.
I think it's much more interesting to live not knoing than to have answers which might be wrong.

How did I miss this thread in it's infancy?...

My handwriting is quite neat.
When I was in primary school, it was horrible, but I then made a conscious effort to write something I could understand later, so I could study...
It worked! Big Grin

Last time someone commented on my handwriting, they said it looks a bit girly... Dodgy

That's pretty bad handwriting.  I can't read any of that.   Big Grin

My writing is a mixture of print and script lol I prefer typing, and playing with various fonts can be fun.

So you type the way you write? Smile
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."
