Do you look at your keyboard while typing?

I don't, I look at the words being typed. I thought everyone typed like this but apparently a lot of people look at their keyboard while typing and then check what they typed. Which one are you?

  • Voted B), I honestly don't need to look at my keyboard at all. All I need to see is whether I pressed the right buttons or if I shifted somewhere or somehow managed to typo and miss out a button or something. If I don't shift away, I have pretty good accuracy and can often even tell if I pressed something wrong while I'm looking to the right, not looking at the screen at all...

    • Thank you for the MHO! :D as a way to show my gratitude, I typed this message without looking at my computer screen at all while writing this. Hopefully I didn't make any typos, although I honestly doubt I did, I can kinda tell when I press a wrong key. Who knows if I got the 100% accuracy that I was planning on getting. Backtracking is hard, though.

    • Lol I know what you mean, you can feel it when you make an error

    • Unless you accidentally shift one to the right. One time I replied to someone on MSN Messenger while I was asleep. I wrote back, "I havr no idea" and I was like that's pretty decent considering I wrote that at 2:40 AM when I was completely asleep and I'm not even sure how I managed to type that, haha. (yeah, I sleepwalk sometimes o-o)

  • Sometimes I spell a word wrong more than once so I'm like wtf and stare at each key while I type. Basically a mixture of both.

  • I do both, I find my accuracy is higher when I look at the keyboard so if I'm in a rush I'll look at it - otherwise I'm trying to train myself not to

  • Not really. Only when I am starting the sentence, to press the first letter. After that, I'm good to go.

  • I usually look at the words being typed unless I need to put parenthesis and I need to use the shift keys (or something similar to that), then I'll look at my keyboard.

  • Generally touch type, but I've recently been changing laptop fairly frequently and have yet to addjust to the new keyboard, so I am kind of glancing at the keyboard every now and then.

  • Most of the time. I can type fast and tell when I spelled something wrong. I see nothing bad or embarrassing about looking at the keyboard while typing.

  • I would say I'm a mixture, but I look at he screen more than he board for sure. I grew up with pmayi g computer games which helped learn where keys were. Now it just sucks when I make a mistake and try to correct it without looking and make another mistake

  • Better to not look even if you're more innacurate, accuracy will build up over time.
