    I've always struggled with spelling. I correlate it with being more of an auditory learner than a visual one.

    My husband, an INTP, is a good speller. My INTJ daughter and EXTJ son are good spellers.

    My INFP daughter has the same kinds of trouble with spelling as I do. My IXTP son appears to be leaning towards having difficulty spelling, but the jury is still out. Maybe it's some kind of dyslexia or something. English, IMO, is terribly confusing.

    Edit: The good reader/good speller thing . . . I'm a good reader. I can read just about anything. Reading and spelling is like the difference between taking something apart (reading) and putting it together (spelling). I can take it apart, but can't seem to put it back together easily.
    “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'm a visual learner, always have been.

    When I spell a word incorrectly, I usually know it, why?

    Because it doesn't look right.

    Also, I am a dictionary freak, and enjoy perusing them for fun.

    I agree aout the spelling-reading link, when I was a kid I used to read more than other kids so my spelling was good, as my reading time declined so did my spelling abilities.

    I have the ability to spell/pronounce nearly any word correctly -- and I will if it's for something important.

    On the internets, however, I'm not too worried about it. DDDDDDDD

    Well, I know an ITJ who is a terrible speller.

    I'm an English major, so naturuly I have a fare grasp of SPAG.

    My first instinct is that Sensors would be better spellers than Intuitives when it comes to routine words. (I'm not necessarily wondering about the types of the national spelling bee champs, although it would be interesting to know...) However, I do know of many deviations from this theory. The reason I ask is because I am trying to distinguish the S/N preference of my roommate, and I have noticed that she often misspells or asks me for the spelling of words. I have never had a problem with spelling, and I find it interesting when others seem to struggle (or simply don't care). I had the gist that my roommate was a Sensor, but this would, again, contradict the theory.

    Please add your thoughts.
    I'll speak for my type, but I think spelling is usually easy for NFs, since written communication (poetry, novels, journalism, etc.) is their natural gift. I was about ten years old when I said good bye for good to spelling mistakes. My fifth grade teacher once said to my parents, "Next year, your daughter should be able to write without any spelling mistakes."

    Exactly the same for me.

    I have a photographic memory. Once I've read a word spelled right in a book, I will always remember how to spell it.

    Take an ENTP.
    Add lots and lots of books.
    Add a fancy for writing that doesn't cool down for 100 years.

    You'll get good spelling Even in Dutch, where the spelling rules change every 5 years.

    I guess being an ENTP is not necessary - the books and the fancy for writing will do the trick!

    Si users would most likely be fantastic spellers - they store away the data on how a word looks when it's correct.

    Te would also probably lend itself to good spelling - decisive logical organization makes for a consistent performer. But writing practice trumps any type preferences any day.
