I'm not sure how many styles of typing there is, but I think there are at least two ways xD Were you taught how to type or did you self teach yourself and what steps did you do to remember key placements ^^?



I learned the Home Row way back in highschool ^^



Lets make this fun... Close your eyes and type away.. See how well you do with typing with your eyes closed xD



Omi-g, I type better with my eyes closed xDDD

Well, I don't exactly remember the primary learning method, but I do believe I was first self-taught and then later on learnt the "proper" way. Either way, I find it pretty easy to type - heck, I have my eyes closed right now.

There used to be a touch type programme on our school computers, I gave it a go but gave up after the first lesson. Instead, I just learnt it myself... Just came naturally I suppose. I'm trying to master typing on my iPod now!! :D

It's sad because you still don't know how to use the shift key and period key and apostrophe key.

Let's see here, I learned to type one key at a time but, in elementary school we had a typing class every once a month? XD They put a cover on the keyboard so that we couldn't see the letters. After that, But after like 4th grade they stopped having that and I used this program to learn, but soon gave up.... Then from there, I had a computer class and they made us learn how to type using an internet program.... Then again in hs..... So yeah.... Typing this without looking.... :3



But I don't type extremely correctly... I only use one shift key, and push the space with only one hand, lol. :3
