How do you write your numbers?

Post by Tobi » Sun Jun 14, 2015 8:24 am

I started noticing a lot of people had different ways of writing numbers, so I made this poorly made sheet and started collecting styles from fonts and handwriting I knew. Sorry for the lines disappearing, this is not just poorly made using a mouse but also resized, so it's especially half-assed.

If I missed some, go ahead and tell me, maybe I'll add them!

So all these styles got me curious to how you guys write numbers. Use the sheet or make your own drawing on paint or something of your style!

My personal one is 1B and A for the rest, since obviously, I made this sheet, so most of the first ones will be my own style.

Combination of D and B, although I've never seen anyone draw a line through their sevens before.

^I got scolded at back in the 4th grade for not striking my 7's.

^
...That's a really dumb reason to be scolded in my opinion. o.o
I mean, as long as it can still be read easily, I see no problem in not striking 7's.
But whatever.

Anyway, my numbers are as follows:

1: A
2: A
3: B
4: F
5: A
6: A
7: D
8: C
9: C
0: A

^Well if you have 7D in combination with 1B it gets difficult to read.

Basically, the same way the keys on the keyboard show, with the exception of 9 as I do the "q" version and 1 will sometimes just be a line like l but that's when I'm in a rush.

1/l
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
q

Back when I could see, I avoided handwriting whenever possible, and one silver lining of being blind is no one ever expects you to handwrite something unless your signing your name, and no one expects a blind man to have a legible signature.

Anyways:
I always wrote 0 as a rough circle
I always wrote 1 as a simple vertical line.
I wasn't aware that 2 and 3 had multiple common handwritten forms.
I can't remember whether I favored writing 4 with two vertical lines or a diagonal connecting the crossbar and upright.
I wasn't aware 5 had multiple common handwritten forms.
I wrote 6 as a rough circle and continueing into a straight diagonal.
I wrote 7 as a horizontal line and a diagonal, though sometimes the horizontal would be slanted and it would look more like a >.
I wrote 8 as two rough circles, not caring about their relative sizes.
I wrote 9 the same way I wrote 6.

Other notes about my handwriting:
I never learned cursive, not even for my name.
I never attempted anything resembling serifs.
My a often looked more like lowercase alphas.
My periods often looked like uncurved commas.
My Japanese handwriting was generally less lazy than my English handwriting, though still pretty lazy. Never bothered with proper stroke order, though poor handwriting in Japanese can easily corrupt one character into another character with different phonetics or meaning.
Just so you know, I am blind.

My style represents row A the most, except I don't strike through my sevens, and my twos have a loop in 'em, you know where. I mostly just write them in the fastest manner possible, which may lead to some distortion here and there. (I've been told my sixes look like b's sometimes.)

E for 1 and 2.
F for 7.
C for 0.
B for the rest.

Using only my mouse, I'm gonna give a basic idea of how I write my numbers.

Bonus: I actually write my K really weird. I write uppercase K normal, but for the lowercase I'll actually use the cursive form. I don't know cursive, I just really like that k better. Sadly, it's often people will be like "is that an r?".

I have really weird handwriting in general so I'm going to give out my entire alphanumeric handwriting style.

I'll say, you missed your apostrophe on "it's."

Anyway, I write my 1's as just a line, and my 9's like the B column from the first post. Otherwise, it is very much like Maple's. I also close my 0's.

On the topic of k's, my capital and lowercase are very poorly distinguished. I guess the branches are higher up on my capitals, if it is noticeable at all.

All in all, my handwriting is bad.

Finally, a reason to get out my tablet

Written a bunch of times with different brushes because no one's handwriting is exactly the same every time they write out each letter/number

Maybe a combination of the first post's A and C? I didn't always strike my sevens, but I've started doing so over the past few years while I don't strike my 0's at all. I used to also write 2's in B's style, but stopped after a while because I didn't like how they came out when I did.

I find it interesting how barely anyone writes there 7's with a strike.
