Importance of Writing Skills - Online Source

This quote was added by weesin
Poor spelling and grammar suggests other undesirable traits about you - a lack of attention to detail, laziness and a lack of pride in your work. A lack of effort in the writing department will actually dampen other completely unrelated achievements, courtesy of the 'horn effect', a powerful psychological curiosity in which if a person seems particularly lacking in one trait, that person will often be assumed to be deficient in others.

not really. there are times where i use proper grammar and there are times where i don't. when your in a work environment i suggest you should probably use correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation. but when your doing something like making a comment in keyhero or playing games or just texting a friend i don't think you have to have amazing or outstanding grammar.
