    I am an 8, which sometimes turns it into a lowercase alpha.

    I'm either a 7 or an 8. Going to have to test myself to find out which now.

    Not sure I'm consistent. Think I vary between 5 and 7.

    I think it would be interesting (well, a little bit) to see if handedness is a factor?

    I also think 7 is the route taken by those who were taught proper handwriting skills! :D

    Took me a while to work out what I was meant to do!
