Infographic: The benefits of Handwriting vs Typing

Infographic: The benefits of Handwriting vs Typing Infographic The pen is mightier than the sword, as the saying goes, but is it also mightier than the keyboard?

The following infographic tries to answer that question, and it could go either way.

Some of the benefits of pens include:

  • better reading comprehension,
  • more effective memory recall,
  • sharpened critical thinking, and
  • increased creativity.

But keyboard, and the electronic devices they are attached to, have their own positive points:

  • speed,
  • ease of sharing, and
  • indexing & organization.

Really, though, it all comes down to how you want to be equipped when the zombie apocalypse sweeps the world: a pen, which is only good as a short range stabbing weapon, or a keyboard which might make a decent club?

The choice is up to you.

  1. What? No mention of fountain pens? I agree with a lot of this (plus I like writing in cursive). Which I’d one reason I am thinking of getting the Lenovo yoga book when it comes out.
    My issue is slays having to transcribe later =P
