Is your handwriting good?

Do you consider your handwriting as good? Why? Do you also agree that a woman's handwriting is usually much better than a man's handwriting? Personally I don't really think that my handwriting is any good. I think I need to practice more in writing better and try to develop a good handwriting.

I have a very bad handwriting and my teachers during the years have made me clear that i should change it even by punishing me...But it seems quite impossible..My bad handwriting is related to some strange sort of imposing my hand on the paper. Many have tried to make me change it but nothing did the woork.. In my opinion man's handwriting is generally more goodloking cause of the strict imposing of the hand and the arches of the letters are more firm...This is always in some handwritings that i have seen but obviously everybody has its own values..

I agree, people have their own ways of rating a handwriting and some would say that your handwriting even shows your personality.

Good to know, most of the class secretaries have really good handwriting. Also to be able to copy others' handwriting is also a good skill.

I believe that I do have fairly good handwriting. It tends to be less good than it used to be when I used handwriting every day. Now, I find, I have to concentrate more to write better. When I was about 14 or 15 I worked very hard to improve my writing and took Alfred Fairbank's italic hand as a model. Many people have remarked on how readable and fluent it is, so I think I had some success. I can't say that I've noticed any difference between the neatness of men's and women's handwriting as a general rule. I think it may depend on how much one writes by hand - and women tend to write more letters than men, perhaps. Some people I know have very neat and even looking handwriting which is almost completely unreadable because so many letters are formed exactly the same!

I also experienced that when you stopped writing for a very long time, the quality of your writing tends to decrease. About women's handwriting, I agree that women's handwriting are somewhat better as they tend to write more than men.

Well there was a time my handwriting was really bad and once my teacher has thrown my notebook because of that, but now I am proud of my handwriting it is too good.It is just a matter of practice and patience which can change your handwriting too. So keep on improving.Best of Luck.

I agree, in order to improve our handwriting we really need patience and practice. Experiences like the one you have also helps. I think if we are disciplines early on with our handwriting we would have a very good penmanship.

I think I have pretty neat handwriting - as long as I'm writing with a pencil, lol. I don't like writing with a pen very much. My handwriting tends to get kindof sloppy then. No idea why. I think a woman's handwriting is neater than a man's. At least, out of all the guys handwriting I've seen, lol. There has been a few who I'd say had beautiful handwriting, though.

I think it's because when writing in pen, it's more smooth and somewhat slides more as it uses ink. That might be the reason. Also I agree that there are some men who have good handwriting.

My handwriting has gone from bad to worse. I am typing more on computer keyboards than actually writing. I do find that girls' handwriting is much more neater than that of boys but one cannot generalise.

hehe, Well I've been wondering why people consider doctor's handwriting as bad. Do doctors really make their handwritings look bad or is it just a trend on doctor to have a bad penmanship?

I have been told by others that I have very nice handwriting. Myself, I don't agree but is this not what we always do when things are told about ourselves? I think so. I do agree that most women't writing is much neater than mens as they spend a bit more time at it. Men just seem to scribble what they have to and be done with it.

Good to hear, I also think that women have more neater handwriting because they pay more attention to it and try to make their handwriting nicer, while men sometimes just doesn't care.

I believe my handwriting is quite good. I have faced a problem with this good handwriting at school when one guy told me to write for him also. I was worried and brought my mother to solve quarrel with that guy.

I consider my handwriting as quite avarage to good. It may not be the best handwriting in the world, but it's good readable and visible, and everyone says it looks quite good! So I'm not complaining about it! Au contraire with 90% of the Hungarian people...Who most of their handwriting, I can't even find out what kind of LETTERS they write! So usually,I ask that person what he has written down, because that's ofcourse for me and for everyone else much easier and better to understand, lol!
