  • Nope. But I've been on computers since I was 6 so it's very natural. I can usually read other stuff, type, feel mistakes as they happen and correct them without looking. It's pretty handy.

    In other news, my handwriting is terrible, and I have to think a lot about spelling while handwriting stuff hahaha

  • I don't have to look, I find myself typing in the dark or whilst talking to people... it's difficult though when I change keyboard, for a day or so since the spacing is different.

  • They taught us not to look back in typing class in junior high. I learned to type on these things called "typewriters", haha. That makes me feel old as f*ck.

  • I don't have to, most of the time. I actually don't even type in the proper way ( link ) but I can usually type quite fast and with decent enough accuracy. I only look right before I start typing and then I go.

  • Not really.

    Once I get my fingers at the "a-s-d-f, j-k-l-; " position I don't need to look down anymore. :)

  • I'm pretty good but still look at the keyboard once in a while. It think that its because I take NY hands away from the keyboard a lot because I am not writing essays or anything anymore

  • I used to the first year I started typing (wow, has it really been around 8 years?).

    Not now though, no. Except for the occasional time I'm just having a really off typing/spelling day. The main time I really look is when typing numbers.

  • I would type too slow if I looked at the keyboard all the time. I'm a web designer/software engineer for a living. So not only have I had plenty of practice but if I stared at the keyboard while typing, I'd never finish a project before it became irrelevant lol

  • Nope! My parents forced me to do this dumb typing game when I was really young, but I guess I should thank them for it now cause I can type pretty quick without looking at the keyboard!

    • Hah mine too! My mom used to give me typing tests. I hated them then, but it came in handy now

  • I don't need to look. I've been typing my whole life practically! I learned to type on a typewriter as a kid so it forced me to learn the proper hand placement.

  • Mostly no. Unless it's the numbers on top or the keys I don't use often. So its like 90% looking at the screen and 10% looking at those annoying keys I don't use often but don't find the time to memorize since passing Keyboarding class Freshman year. lol

  • I take a peak whenever I place my hands on it, right before I start typing. But after that, I just keep my eyes on the screen, sometimes I glance at the TV too, haha! I've been using computers A LOT for most of my life, typing has become second nature to me by now :-)
