    Because their brains have been rotting due to the authoritarian nature of their years of training and work.

    Or, it could be that it's just a myth. http://www.bmj.com/content/313/7072/1657

    You don't see the handwriting of people in various other professions, so it's just a cognitive bias. People in general just have terrible handwriting.

    I have terrible handwriting.....I blame it on being able to think faster than I can write. ;)

    What prompted this question? Is there any significance to having bad handwriting? Perhaps when your thyroid is functioning properly your writing improves? ;)
