I normally use either blue or black ink while writing but still feel that black ink has got more effect than blue ink in that it gives good impression to the reader about the content or the matter. More than that black enhances neatness by a great degree.

Graphologists have a different view point on this issue. In general preference for black ink indicates an independent mind. The person has leadership qualities. Females who prefer black ink are career minded. Having an independent streak means they will be prepared to do almost everything to achieve what they want. People who choose blue are more suited to jobs which are directly people related. For example most teachers and nurses prefer blue ink. This does not mean they cannot be leaders. They may need some support and help to become effective leaders. all the best, rosdimy

Very interesting analysis. I would have thought that the color choice of ink used to write came down to something as simple as what you used in childhood. I like your psychological take on the subject.

If you're talking important official papers I prefer black. If you're talking about writing as in writing stories and books. I prefer different colors. Depending on the type of story will determine what color (everything from black, blue, green, purple, and others). The only color I won't use is red. And that's my editing/proofreading color.

I do write and usually for a rough one I do not use specific ink, I might end up with different colours and then for the final paper to be read I will choose a black ink which goes very well on white papers.

Since i can remember, i prefer blank ink pens than blue ink---especially when i am writing. I am more comfortable and confident when i use black ink pens...Though, i cannot explain to you exactly why i behave that way.

I have a differnt choice. I always prefer blue ink. Blue ink handwritten letters look beautiful in white paper as I feel and that is the reason many people say blue ink is good for writing. But in some official documents like insurance etc are supposed to be filled up and signed only with black ink. They are invalid if filled up or signed with blue or any other ink. This may be a very speific case for security reasons of the documents. But I feel, majority of people choose bule ink pen for their writing. Even most of my e-mails I send to friends compose with blue letters. Thanks for this nice posting and have good writing skills!

I am sorry, I have a differnt opinion. I prefer blue ink. I think black looks good in white paper and that is the reason some people say black ink is good for writing. Some government documents are supposed to sign only with black ink. They are invalid if you sign with blue or any other ink. I love blue ink and I used blue ink most of my life.

I look at black ink to be more formal, maybe because most government forms prefer black since it's a lot more clear when you photocopy it. So when I am going to fill out formal documents, even if they are not government forms, I use black ink since I already have the concept that black ink is more formal. I also use black only when I make checks
