Hand­writ­ing more trusted than email

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - FOOD -

FEAR not if you are some­body who prefers to write by hand in­stead of us­ing tech­nol­ogy.

A re­cent study of UK adults found that hand­writ­ing still has its place in every­day life and is more trusted than texts, emails and so­cial me­dia posts.

Shop­ping and to-do lists are the most pop­u­lar rea­son to write by hand. 54% of women say they are most likely to hand­write lists com­pared to 37% of men.

When ques­tioned, 81% of peo­ple said they were more likely to trust a mes­sage that has been hand­writ­ten.

Ac­cord­ing to Columbia Law School pro­fes­sor Ron­ald Mann, the phys­i­cal act of sign­ing a name can in­crease the au­thor’s own level of sin­cer­ity and at­tach­ment to the copy.
