    I don't have a particular natural ability with spelling, but I do with spell checkers. When I see that red, squiggly line, I know something isn't right.

    Well... According to this thread I cannot spell. Or don't care.

    How is spelling related to type? Given that there are going to be many people of every type who can spell or cannot spell, I doubt any MBTI trends will be found.

    I hate spelling checkers. They are correcting your spelling already when you want to take care of an intern consistent, good story first. It's no good correcting spelling and then rewriting the story. I turn them off. When I'm ready, I check my spelling myself and only then turn the damned thing on. I always want to beat the spelling checker!

    I was thinking about the relation with type...
    I guess an SJ would take care of correct spelling regardless of interest. If I wasn't interested in language, I would probably care less...

    I really don't care about spelling, but since teachers are totally fixated about this weird, useless matter, I forcibly became good at it. Here in Italy you can lose 3 grades in an assignment if you spell 2 words incorrectly. Once I wrote a long, complex story for my german class. I made 4 spelling mistakes, got a D (she said she should have given me an E, since the mistakes were 4, but the story was good). Other kids that wrote a short, idiotic story with perfect spelling got As. The message was basically that spelling is the most important thing about a given language.

    That's a bit much, don't you think?

    I have always done well with both spelling and grammar.

    I'm an excellent intuitive speller, my INTP son is not.

    I think being a good speller involves a lot of different things, least of which is caring that you spell words "correctly." Sheer brain processing, detailed memory, willingness to practice, exposure to lots of words, etc... it's kind of hard to narrow it to a particular type since much of this is "basic human skillset" stuff, not necessarily function-based.

    I think you'll see a lot of SJ people in proofreading because it suits their temperament, but it doesn't mean they are naturally better spellers, they're just quick to perceive and compare things and weed out the "incorrect" as their natural mode of operation.
