    Hi guys! I thought it would be interesting to find out how many of you can touch type! Personally I can sort of touch type (i.e. I can type without looking at the keyboard, but I don't use the official method of touch typing). What method do you guys use to type?

    I can only do it if I have looked at the keyboard once and put my finger on the key I'm starting on. Then it's all easy from there

    I can do it yes, I guess I've been taught when I was a child so maybe I can do it official way I think.

    Yes, but not with proper technique. I can type very fast but I only really use my middle finger and index finger on my right hand, left hand is solid though.

    I have a Windows Phone so I just use the swipe keyboard, find it easier than trying to type the letters themselves.

    I can sort of touch type but I type a bit slower than average (about 40wpm rather than 60wpm)

    Yes, I can type 80 words per minute. That's why I don't like touchscreens... because I can type so much faster on a conventional keyboard. I always want a real computer with a real keyboard whenever possible, and only want to use my phone in a pinch.

    It also doesn't help that I like to write things out a lot more than I like to sit back and passively consume content. I can never watch a YouTube video without wanting to write out a three paragraph comment on it.
