Bal's handwriting thread got me thinking about the way you hold a pen. This image is typically how people hold a pen, do you do the same?



...'cause it's not the case for me and I felt like a bit of a freak in school because the only way I can write neatly is like this:



mellow.gif I know. It is uncomfortable and leaves my right ring finger feeling a bit achey, but it is the only way that my writing looks neat. How about you guys? I am really intrigued by this as pretty much all of my friends would hold their pen conventionally but I just can't for some reason.

I am scared to post my opinion in case Bal bullies me again x

I hold my pen exactly the same way as you Jade and I never even realised that was 'wrong' until one of my teachers commented on it lol. I've tried to write the 'proper' way and it doesn't feel right to me, that's probably just because I'm used to the 'wrong' way more than anything but still ~

Now I'm slightly bemused because I don't hold a pen either of those ways and both look extremely weird and uncomfortable to me! I've made it more than twenty years of my life before realising I hold a pen a different way to most folk, mind blown ohmy.gif

Nothing like either of those laugh.gif

Mine is pretty much a fully clenched fist with a pen hiding somewhere. Still never met anyone with worse handwriting than me!

I voted 'yes' in the poll but then I put it to the test and began to doubt myself. I've taken my own picture for clear evidence laugh.gif

I don't think I've ever seen anyone hold a pen like you confused.gif I've only ever known the top way, although my handwriting is atrocious so maybe I'll have to try your way laugh.gif I can't imagine having much control over the pen in the second photo though?

I write in an unusual way! I place my index, middle & ring fingers on the side of the pen, and hold the other side of the pen with my thumb. The middle of the pen rests across the bottom of my index finger (lol that's hard to explain, I probably should take a photo).

I actually can hold the pen and write in the conventional way, but it never feels comfortable and it's not as neat. I tried to make myself do so at school, because some of my primary school teachers saw the way I held a pencil as being a major issue. It made me pretty self conscious about someone watching me write. My secondary school teachers didn't seem to notice, thankfully, although I still felt worried about it in case a classmate saw and noticed that it looked odd. So I'd keep switching between conventional method and my way.

Outside of the class room, I'd always write in my way (i.e. when doing homework). I also had to use my method of writing when doing exams, because that was the only way I was going to be able to write an essay at speed without my hand aching.

When writing conventionally, I find that my middle finger aches quite quickly, and then eventually my wrist aches. Not good!

How do you even write with the second way. That cannot be comfortable

I hold a pen in the same way as the top photo

WTF at the second pic.
