    MBTI Type and Handwriting

    Is there a correlation between MBTI type and handwriting style?

    I have read before that sloppy/hurried handwriting can be a sign of high intelligence, but I'm not sure if that was hogwash or not.

    I'm just curious. I have pretty sloppy handwriting and always have, even when I tried to write cutsey in middle school, it still came out sloppy, lol. I just write so fast, trying to get it out of my head before I lose my train of thought,

    What's your handwriting style? Do you believe your MBTI type has something to do with it? Your level of intelligence? Both? Neither?

    My handwriting always got criticised for how messy it was lol. I think I do tend to write fast which might account for that; urgency of writing down a thought trumps neatness. I also always envied how rounded and neat everyone else's handwriting was as opposed to mine - kind of spiky, though with time it's combined with long/tall lines and narrow loops with a bit of a flourish. Despite having hated my own handwriting for a long time, I like it a lot now. I even get compliments from other people because it looks 'interesting and pretty'.

    As for if I think that my MBTI and/or intelligence have anything to do with that. Hm. Not sure. Hadn't really thought about it much. Maybe, but I'm not convinced :'D

    Mine is just sloppy, lol. Sometimes I have a hard time reading it. If I'm writing super fast, it's a mixture of cursive and non-cursive writing. And I also write somewhat big. I remember in elementary school, I was always getting in trouble for my penmanship. I would try to do better, but it just took too long to have to focus on my handwriting.

    It used to be really sloppy ^^' And my letters do tend to be fairly tall/big, taking up more space than other people's, often enough. It's mostly cursive/flowing writing now, and they tend to space out much more when I write really fast.

    My teachers would try to get me to write 'prettier' but I never managed. It just became smoother with time without consciously focusing on it. I do get the feeling that other people spent much more time on trying to make it pretty/legible. Once I started accepting that it didn't matter what it looked like as long as it was decipherable, there was a lot less pressure to make it look a certain way.

    My mother still thinks my writing is messy as hell. She likes to keep it all clean, big and simple. She puts much more value on practicality than I do.

    mine looks pretty, but even i don't understand a single thing. it's like a really messy cursive, kind of like the ones in old writings, if i try to make it understandable it looks awful

    Ahh, good old misguiding internet studies. The statement, 'If you're intelligent, then you have a sloppy handwriting', means that you can have a sloppy handwriting and still not be intelligent. It's one of the most fundamental logical statements (of P -> Q). Respect logic, please.

    PS just a passing mention: Since the statement can be false, the study itself is wrong. No necessity relationship can be set up either way. In other words, it's only a correlation. Modal logic may apply here (I don't have the energy to do that right now) but that won't be fun.

    PPS I'm totally not saying this because my handwriting is fucking gorgeous.

    My handwriting has been and im pretty sure always will be messy.
    I've always just written as the words come to mind so my hand tries to keep up with my mind I guess. Back when I was in school and I needed to type a paper up I never attempted to structure it except maybe major sections. I would start on a part and free form it from my mind then maybe go back and make sure it was all right(90% of my posts on this site I end up editing at least once because I notice a spelling mistake after I post them).

    My writing works the same way. Only time I really focus on how my writing looks is when I'm trying to make sure whoever is reading it gets the impression of it/me I want them to.

    I'm also a lefty which some say has an effect.

    I do respect logic. I didn't say I went on an internet research binge trying to find meaning to the statement. I merely said that I have seen it said previously and was unsure if it held any merit.

    Furthermore, the statement is, "Sloppy handwriting can be a sign of high intelligence". Not, "If you're intelligent, then you have sloppy handwriting". The two statements are not one in the same.

    You see, this is the kind of shit I can't put up with. Intelligent people are people too and they can be anywhere on the 'behavior' spectrum. Every intelligent individual is different. There are intelligent assholes just as there are nice intelligent people. You can't use anything as a reliable 'sign' of intelligence when there are just that many differences. The only reliable indicator of intelligence is to see how good a person is at what he/she does. But even that has its complexities in that every task puts a different cognitive load and hence the correlation coefficient will be different for each task.

    In other words, I fail to see the point of this entire study or even the mention of it if I can't use it to achieve the end it promises me.

    lol, I wasn't trying to find a sign of intelligence. I was just curious if there was a correlation between MBTI and handwriting. I tossed in the tidbit about sloppy handwriting/intelligence because it popped up in my head as I was typing this thread. I wasn't trying to get into a debate.
