    As a graphologist, I’ve found that writing samples become more revealing due to lack of practice.

    Schools shouldn’t teach children to curse.

    If the goal is communication, than learn to type. I HAD to go back to printing in high school and after college I learned to touch type and compose on the keyboard. BEst thing I ever learned. My kids were all academically advanced and they always typed everything.

    And these days you should learn to type. Period.

    Do we want to raise a generation of people who can’t decipher handwriting on public documents? The Declaration of Independence, among others, was handwritten before it was printed.

    And English has the weirdest spelling “rules” of any language. Of course neuropathy makes either cursive or typing a tad difficult for older folks, so the point of schools should be to prepare kids for life, not just the short term. “knowing” sometimes takes priority over still being able to “do it”.

    I have to print everything, I can’t read my own cursive.

    When I was in graduate school I had to take a course in paleography — the study of ancient handwriting. Sometimes it’s possible to tell from the handwriting exactly where and when (and even by whom) an ancient document was written. Handwriting styles have changed many times over the centuries. Even recently there have been changes. If you look at personal letters written in the mid-1800s, you’ll probably have some trouble reading them.

    Give me any copy of your signature. I will scan it, photoshop out the background and any unwanted elements, print it with an inkjet printer on any form, and emboss the final print perfectly to match the indentations of a pen. The final copy will be so good that unless you are willing to spend a fortune on forensic expertise in your defense, it will stand up in court. In fact, you can submit a photocopy of a faxed signed document in court, which is just insane. Signatures on documents are worthless.

    That’s interesting. One of my paleography teachers was a nun. I found the topic interesting to know about, but not something I wanted to do with my life. It does sometimes come up; for example when we’re trying to correct mistakes in a manuscript, it can be useful to know which letters look like other letters. In one Medieval handwriting style, a “t” and a “c” look very much alike, so the Latin words “tum” and “cum” can easily be confused.

    A different part of the brain is used in writing/reading in cursive. The more parts of the brain that are used, the less are lost as you age.
