Mnemonics slip like ski on snow!
I write so little now. iPhone, iPad, Mac and using dictation or Siri to create text.
The inclusion of toes in this poll reminded me of a book my friends and I were obsessed with in high school. It was called Sniglets and it was a dictionary of silly words. One of them was Aqua-dextrous: The ability to manipulate bathtub faucets with your toes.
My favourite term was Blue-bonic Fluid: The blue stuff used in diaper commercials to prove absorbency.
Dang, I had to pick up a pen to remember how I do it. I originally voted for the first choice, but realized I employ the second method after taking a pen for a test drive.
My first grade teacher had really bad arthritis, and I tried to hold my pencil the way she did. I have bad handwriting to this day.
All the other kids held their pencils the natural way, but I was good at imitating what I saw. I was the only kid in class who could draw a picture and have the blue sky touch the green grass, because that was what I saw. I used to wonder why all the other kids had a tall white sand hill in the background.
My typing teacher had perfectly healthy hands, so I learned to type like a maniac.
Or maybe it's from playing various musical instruments.
I am somewhere in between. I kinda hold it with my thumb and two fingers more or less equally. However, do people picking option 2 have the pen so it rests on their thumb knuckle or between their index/middle finger knuckle? I do the former, but I was surprised to find trying the latter didn’t really impact my ability to write or draw and I may have been a little more exact
I am a tripod grasp but past 7 years old.
We used to get hit over the knuckles for holding it “wrongly”. Thumb and index finger only was deemed to be the way!
Modified Tripod. Pen rests on side of middle finger while thumb and index hold the pen in position along the middle finger. All three fingers flex together to write.
I write or print using a Bic (or equivalent) pen.
I hold a pen/pencil with the tip between my thumb and index finger using my middle finger as a support.
