I took typing in middle school on a manual typewriter.

I don't type very fast, but don'e have to look at the keyboard when I do so.

My main problem is that I get muscle memory and so type words or letters from just using them so much.

@Annie.... Funny thing...I failed typing in HS too. I did eventually learn my own style that works quite well. Now I can sure tear up a 10key though.

heck I don't even think typing is an elective here anymore, unless you are going for a college and career ready pathway of business. I took it back in high school, didn't use it much until I started doing more on computers about 18 years ago. Luckily my fingers still remembered "home" and where all the letters etc are. I just find it odd with all that the kids are expected to do on the computers they don't teach that. They teach how to use power point in Kindergarten but not how to type lol.

NJ our schools haven't taught cursive in quite a while. My older girl taught herself how. Younger? She can sign her name in cursive, that is about it.

@PG,

I love the idea of driving you crazy with two fingers, but that wasn't exactly what I had in mind.

JW when they took out cursive? lil darlin learned cursive. and practices, too.

i took a semester of typing in H.S.

wasn't till i started working that i became very proficient at it. i think you either "got it" or not when it comes to typing, although i could be wrong.

I'm guessing you know my status, right?

it drives me crazy watching people type with two fingers instead of 10 on the keyboard. And they are amazed I don't have to look at my keyboard to type and am way more accurate then they are. I'm not saying they need to have a years worth of lessons on it. But a couple of weeks of basic would be nice. I mean they took out cursive so they should be able to fit in a typing tutorial or two.

I'd like to know how well people who are taught to type type vs those who just figured it out themselves.

I (and most people I grew up with) never went through a typing class. Yet I can type.
