There is some information about personalities and social adjustment which shows that those who write good cursive are better adjusted and do better in academics than those who simply keyboard. Even better than printing...that said. I rarely scribble out my hasty checks without some clerk saying..."wow! You've got great handwriting." It always surprises me as I am being so hasty that it isn't up to my normal standards but it must be legible. Then I remember most of these younger people never had Penmanship in school. Too bad. They need to keep it if they have it and get it if they don't .
