Vikes99ej 07-13-2012 12:22 AM

Not anymore, unless I am highly intoxicated.

WCH 07-13-2012 12:23 AM

No. I've got crazy keyboarding skillz.

sbh15 07-13-2012 12:24 AM

no. but I do type very oddly. I type the correct way with my right hand but only hit keys on the left side with my index finger

TACKLE 07-13-2012 12:24 AM

I didn't put all that time in elementary school on All The Right Type for nothing.

If you're saying you push keys better than Pablo Escobar, yeah, I feel.

None of you n00bz should be looking at the keyboard with how much time you spend on here.

Brothgar 07-13-2012 01:03 AM

Yeah I only look in the odd occasion that I lose home row which never happens with my left hand but rarely with my right.

Brothgar 07-13-2012 01:04 AM

Also if you want to have fun with someone with a mac change their keyboard to Dvorak watch them flip out.

I type on a computer constantly. and having fast typing skills was in my job requirements.

Bixby (Thumper) 07-13-2012 01:05 AM

Unless I'm really having trouble figuring out how to say something, no.

That's what the plastic lifts in the 'F' and 'J' are for.

OSUGiants17 07-13-2012 01:06 AM

I do, but very rarely. I have never had any formal typing class (not that it matters), but for someone who does look at the key-board, I type pretty fast.

I thought those were there just to trip my fingers

I occasionally check down at the keyboard, almost out of habit. I don't need to look down at it or anything, but I do type noticeably faster when I do. I am not a slow typer by any means, but it goes much quicker when I look down. I honestly don't even really watch to see if I'm pressing the right buttons. I personally think its more entertaining watching my hands move around than seeing my words pop up on the screen. But its a PITA to go back and fix even just one typo, so I usually don't.

Giantsfan1080 07-13-2012 07:54 AM

It's very rare that I do but I also don't type in the proper way.

Mavis Beacon yo.

Ngatachance92 07-13-2012 09:05 AM

Yup and I type only using my index fingers.

Damix 07-13-2012 09:06 AM

I'm a surprisingly poor typer for someone who works in IT. In general I don't look at the keyboard, but if I need to type really fast I do.

ImBrotherCain 07-13-2012 09:24 AM

I used to find myself looking at the keyboard a lot more than I do now. When I had a laptop 3 years ago or so I looked at it far more than I do now.

Sometimes I will look at the keyboard if I get mixed up but I find that as soon as I get the feel of a new keyboard I am good to go.

SuperPacker 07-13-2012 09:48 AM

I'm not sure whether I do or not.

This is a test to see whether i can trpe without looking.

^I can, but I don't.
