    I like spelling things correctly, so I try to. In the process of trying to spell things correctly, I learn how to spell better as I go. I think most people who are "bad spellers" just don't care enough to try. If they're not sure about how to spell a word they're using, they just make something up instead of trying to figure it out and remembering it. (I'm not ruling out people who don't have that ability, though. I know they do exist.) I think anybody can value spelling for any reason, so I don't think it's very type related.

    INTJ here. Lost the 1st grade spelling bee for not capitalizing "Saturday". Won the 2nd grade spelling bee. Always been good (i.e., anal) about spelling.

    But maybe not so much about diction. The phrase you're looking for is anal-retentive--the word "anal" is commonly misused in place of it, but you can also be anal-expulsive, which is exactly the opposite attitude!
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    I always hated the imagery that the term 'anal-expulsive' tends to evoke.

    Not this bad, usually--just thought it'd be a funny time to point it out given that you were extolling the virtues of your own anal-retentiveness.

    Well I'm quite a good speller and I'm also OK in grammar (at least when it comes to my native language), but my experience shows that ESTx persons are just the worst people at grammar and spelling. Well, at least the 2 that I know are really good at explaining their thought and often get straight A's in the ideas part, but F's in grammar/spelling when writing essays, are both ESTx.
    Oh yeah?
