    Default Correlation between type and spelling ability?

    I wasn't sure where to post this -- hopefully this is the right place or close to it.

    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?

    Why don't we draw a correlation between the size of my penis and my shoe size while we're at it .

    ^^^^^

    I love that first commercial ... I about died laughing the first time I saw it.

    To the OP: um, well, I'm an ENFP English Lit major. I always write "A" papers. I'm excellent with analysis, creativity, and content. I'm probably still better with spelling and grammar than the average person, but in reality those aspects of English aren't really my cup of tea. Just ask Simulated World - he enjoys correcting my posts.

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    On a semi-related note, INFJs seem to have exceptionally good command of language as compared to other types.
