Explain why someone who draws really well has a terrible handwriting?
My friend is an architect. Obviously, he can draw beautifully. I’m just surprised to see his chicken scratch handwriting. It’s squiggly and appears as if he doesn’t put any effort into conforming to the correct letter forms. Shouldn’t a highly visual person have a really tidy handwriting?
I’m a computer programmer and often times I also have to think in 3D; I draw diagrams and use computer extensively, so here are our similarities. It’s unthinkable, in my opinion, to work in a profession that requires extensive writing and diagramming, yet have a chicken scratch handwriting.
Additionally, he can be messy. Anything other than his 3D animation works or building design, he can be neglectful. There’s one thing odd about him: when asked to recall a set of numbers, he says he “sees” numbers in his mind (as opposed to me, who just “knows” what the numbers are). Not sure if this would add to the discussion, but there you go.
