    so today i learned that people use different amounts of fingers to type (some people with just one hand, some with all 10, some with 3, some with 8...) and this is something I've never really thought about and tbh is kind of mindblowing to think about now.

    Personally, I use three fingers (both my index fingers + left thumb).
    EDIT+ actually wait i use 4 since i use one finger solely for pressing the enter-key

    Additional questions:
    - are you a slow or fast typer?
    - if you know, why do you that amount
    - did you learn typing by yourself or did you do a typing class or something like that


    feel free to clarify in a post as well!

    Thumbs aren't fingers

    Nine, because my right thumb handles all the spaces. I learnt how to touch-type naturally without classes, which I suppose is fairly common for people who type a lot.

    This. My left thumb is useless when I type.
    My dad types with his index fingers only and has Siri dictate for him on his iphone out of laziness. This annoys me to no end.

    There's nothing necessarily wrong with it, but it's not necessarily right. What I'm trying to say is, I'm a far more superior human being. :cool:

    I'm the only one saying that my left thumb is useless when it comes to typing. Not anyone else.

    Like did nobody learn to type at school?

    If you don't type with all 10 fingers you're some kind of typing plebe.

    Is this why neither of you can type "you're"?

    although I use my left thumb for space on games if I'm using my right hand for mouse but I guess that doesn't count
