    Nah I can watch TV and type an entire paragraph. I used to play a lot of online video games when I was little, and the witty arguments we would have required a fast response with correct grammar. That was the only way to win an argument lol. But, before I hit send on whatever I typed I glance over what I typed and fix any errors.

    When i buy a new keyboard, yes. Until i get used to it, i sometimes have to check.

    And it's "typist" not "typer"

    My friends all say that I'm the fastest typist they know. My dad is even faster, but that's just because he does computer programming maybe.

    My ipad has the virtual keyboard, my hp notebook has a condensed keyboard that is smaller than my logitech keyboard for my desktop... Plus I am a 6 finger (thumb for spacebar, index and middle finger for all the other keys ) typer... But was tested at 70 words per minute. It ain't pretty, but I'm accurate and fast. Lol

    I learned to type before I went to college. On an old manual Royal, too. Compared to that, a modern computer keyboard is a cinch to type on. They even mark your home keys for you, so that you can't miss them.

    I know it but never learned to type the number row in my youth. I learned on a typewriter and we took off 5 words a minute for a mistake. My speed back then was around -20 per minute.

    I don't have to look at the keyboard ... my husband thinks it's weird how I can look at him or watch tv and finish whatever I was typing. I think it's cause I'm a mom ... multi-tasking is a survival skill!

    From time to time, especially when writing with one hand.
    Otherwise, with the "ten finger system", I am reading what I write.

    I have to glance at it when arranging my fingers to start typing, but once I'm going I only have to look if somehow my posture is displaced, just to get my fingers back in the correct spot.

    No. Taught myself to touch type in HS. Always amazed there are others working in IT who never learned how.
