Now, how did you go about it? The left stroke first, downward, then the correct, or the correct stroke first, upward? Turns on the market are a number of methods.

The query of how people instinctively draw an X has gone viral, because of a thread by Twitter person @SMASEY. It is divided Twitter in a method we've not seen because the complete Yanny/Laurel debate of 2018. 

"Which method do you draw an X?" she requested, presenting eight potentialities, every exhibiting a special color for the primary stroke and arrows indicating the route of the strokes.

Also this is so interesting to me - which way do you draw an X? Colored line being the first stroke
