8. I learned it in the early 1970's to make note-taking faster. As an engineering student

My mom tried to teach me it in around 1970, but I wasn't interested then. But I decided to learn it, and took a course in it around 1975.

It definitely makes note-taking faster than cursive. (I can't even imagine what it would be like to keep up with a lecture while taking notes in print letters).

The problem was that most of the notes I made were ones that I wanted to read later a few times. But the mental translation effort took the focus off of understanding and thinking about the content. So I eventually quit doing that and forgot it.

I still have the Gregg Shorthand book. They are still being sold, Google [gregg shorthand]. and [shorthand courses]

It's pure asinine bullshit that one has to go through hell to find someone who can read shorthand. Unless this is some old variant, or if the person used their own personal shorthand and a lot of their own abbreviations (we all did to some extent ).
