    I am a bad speller. My theory is that it has more to do with learning style than type. I'm an auditory learner and English is so bleeping convoluted. Or maybe it's some mild form of dyslexia -- I still sometimes flip letters when I write. I can read anything, but spelling is much more difficult for me.

    My husband is an INTP and a wonderful speller. Our INTJ daughter and E?T? son are good spellers.

    Our INFP and INTP kids take after their mama in the spelling department.

    So I dunno.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I routinely fail at spelling simple words, though oddly, I have less trouble with the tricky ones

    I am an excellent speller, and errors in text or on signs drive me insane.

    I know a couple INTP's who are horrible spellers.

    The worst speller I've ever seen is an ES. Not exactly sure of her entire type, but I think she may be a T.

    I'm wondering about a correlation between personality type and spelling ability. Being an elementary school teacher, this topic has been on my mind lately. I'm an INFJ, and I've always been a freakishly good speller. My coworkers get weirded out sometimes because I can almost instantaneously pick out any misspelled words in a big block of text, and when I was younger I always did well in spelling bees, yadda yadda yadda. I have a good INTP friend and an ESTJ friend (both very bright in non-spelling ways) who profess to be horrible spellers. Do you all think an affinity for spelling is an INxJ trait, or perhaps more generally an xNxJ trait? Or do you think there's no correlation with personality type?
    I'm an INJ and I struggled horridly with spelling. I was all but illiterate up to the age of about 14. I needed remedial, one on one lessons with a teacher who specialised in such things before I learned how to read and write. If you look through my posts, I'm sure you will find that they are still littered with mistakes.

    I had to put in a lot of work up to be ready for my GCSEs at 16. I suppose it terms of type, the most significant hings is that I did do the work and got good results.

    Online I'm frequently making spelling and grammar mistakes but I thinks that's because of my typing more than anything else. When I'm typing a word where I'm doubting it's spelling, I'll try writing it down on paper and that helps me remember the correct spelling.

    I've always been an excellent speller. It was always intuitive for me--even if a word was complicated or followed different rules, I just "knew" how to spell it, even when I was a kid. I have to see it, though--I have to write it down, usually. I'm a good speller, but sucked at spelling bees, because I couldn't just see it in my head and say it. Or I'd do something like say "g" when I meant "j."

    I do NOT have the same ease with learning other languages. After taking 4 semesters of Spanish, I know enough to read signs in any of the Romance languages. I can't speak it, can't write it, and can't understand what people are saying when they speak it.
