So I looked up 爾 on tofulearn, and it gave me the most bizarre stroke order animation. You can see it here: https://www.tofulearn.com/dictionary/chinese/%E7%88%BE
I then checked a couple other places, but the first two resources I checked gave me two other different stroke orders: https://www.yellowbridge.com/chinese/character-stroke-order.php?word=%E7%88%BE
The last one is Japanese, so I'm not discounting the possibility that they may have slightly different rules when writing Kanji, than the Chinese do, but the last one makes the most sense out of the three and follows the general rules I learned about stroke orders (left before top and right in boxes, horizontal before vertical丨). The other two don't make as much sense.
Why are there so many different stroke orders for this word? Is there a correct one at all?
