I'm interested how much fingers do you use in typing and how fast is your typing...

I use all fingers expect left thumb and my typing speed is about 350-400 cpm.

Date: 2006-10-06 12:14:13

Eight fingers + right thumb. 450-500 cpm.

The right thumb makes all the difference. Trust me. ;)

Date: 2006-10-07 16:35:44

I use about 7-8 fingers.
And about 500-550 cpm

Date: 2006-10-08 17:22:24

it depends...
if i'm tired 9
just awake 8

Date: 2006-10-10 11:10:31

Well, I use 10 fingers for typing, I did a cursus

Seven fingers, both thumbs. (It depends what I'm typing, but I use both my thumbs for spacebar.)

Usually about 420 - 480 cpm.

Nine fingers. Sometimes I re-train myself to use the left thumb for fun, but it's never very efficient. I am currently at ~90 WPM but my best average was ~147 some years ago.

Also I somehow mis-learned the use of the right Shift key when I was taught to type, and even after over 10 years I can't correct fully correct it. Even for the letter A, I have to reach my left ring finger as my left pinky finger holds the shift. I look ridiculous.

I just use 6 fingers. My ring finger and my little finger are always inactive. Maybe that makes me a bit slower, dunno :/

Date: 2007-04-22 06:42:28

Two fingers one thumb, 357 kpm i believe.

I only use my middle fingers, i don't know why but I use my thumb to press space bar on my right hand, and then i use my middle fingers to dart across the keyboard. I reckoned if I used more fingers, I could easily double my score cause it wouldnt take so long to move around the keyboard, but its a bad habit.

Date: 2007-04-25 16:32:27

I use all of my fingers except the left thumb.

During the small period of time that I owned a Touchstream LP, I used every finger consistently.

Date: 2007-05-22 13:55:37

I use all 4 fingers and thumb of my left hand but mostly only 3 fingers of my right hand. i dont use the ring finger, only sometimes for the german .... but i mostly use the pinky for that. it depends on what ive typed before and how my hands lie.

I use my own crazy style :P
when i had the 10 finger system in school it was much too late to relearn.
so sometimes i even use the middle finger for a Q ;)

and here I type 500-560 KPM.....
but i brought it up to 121 WPM on the powertyping website

I use 2 fingers on each hand(Index and ring of left, index and middle of my right)+ right thumb with the index fingers doing 90% of the work. my highest score is 378kpm (76WPM).

Date: 2007-07-14 01:39:11

RIght Thumb - Space
Left Thumb - Just sits there over the space, but he nevers ever hits anything.

Other than that, I use 9 fingers, because the little left one also just stays over the SHIFT doing nothing while typing.

Date: 2007-09-05 14:14:44

all 5 on the left
and 2 on the right :>


Date: 2007-09-07 09:39:05

i type with three on the left, my index and middle on the right (i think i'm screwing up my joints, too) and use my right thumb for spacing. i have to train my pinky or some other finger to hit the apostrophes and commas, but i've been typing like this for 9 years :O

Date: 2007-12-13 14:18:52

I use 5 fingers.

Middle three fingers on both hands for typing general characters and left pinky for shifting to uppercase. Right thumb for spacing. Right pinky for return. Not your conventional style but it seems to be working, but less fast with sentences since it slows me down when having to shift.

700kpm / 140-150wpm on swedish words, but only around 600-625 on sentences.

Date: 2008-01-06 12:00:22

I use 8 fingers, all of my left hand (left thumb for space).
If there's a line break, I additionally use my right little finger for the return key.
What to do with my right thumb? I don't know :D

Date: 2008-01-06 12:09:33

I use nine fingers. I do not use my right thumb for anything.

Date: 2008-01-08 20:45:24

10 Fingers blind.

Date: 2008-01-22 04:20:06

5 left, 4 right. 600-680 finnish, probably around 500-580 english.

Date: 2008-02-06 01:21:16

three on the left, two on the right + right thumb
it's really awful. i hit punctuation with the right index.
but my best is 681kpm on sentences :D

Date: 2008-03-04 04:19:06

If I dont need to use shift-key (so only typingwords):
I use three of my left hands fingers + thumb and ONE of my right hands.

Makes 5 Fingers and a Highscore of 520 kpm (German).

Date: 2008-03-08 03:15:21

I use 2 fingers and type around 350 CPM.
Using 2 fingers on ma keyboard since 15 years... works, but not perfect.

Date: 2008-03-11 17:10:52

I use all but my right thumb.

I just use my left thumb for space.

Date: 2008-06-11 23:43:53

four fingers on left, five fingers on right

Date: 2008-10-07 15:57:01

I write with 2 fingers + left pinky if I have to use shift... My typing speed is about 395-440...

Date: 2008-10-10 05:37:20

All 8 non-thumb fingers for general keys, and the right thumb for the space bar.

Date: 2008-10-25 06:52:37

I use ten digits. But my left hand gets the same angle as my right (both hands tilt inward).

My left pinkie covers QWERTY keys Q, W and A (V, F and S on my layout). The left ring, middle and in index have QWERTY ESZ, RDX (an explosive combination) and TFCGVB respectively. My right hand uses the standard positioning.

My left thumb works the Shift (QWERTY LeftAlt) and my right thumb covers AltGR. Both thumbs alternate on the space bar.

I'm about one third as fast as Minilek. So he may have sleeker form. Or he's just fast. Maybe both.

Date: 2008-10-25 16:41:23

I use nine fingers, all the fingers in the left hand and in the right hand i dont use thumb. I write about 95 words per minute.

Date: 2008-12-04 09:49:36

10 fingers. which thumb is different :)

Date: 2008-12-19 21:56:16

all fingers except my left thumb.

Date: 2009-01-25 23:24:08

I basically just use the two index and middle fingers. Small fingers for shift and thumbs for space.
I don't really use the ringfingers except sometimes for "ayx" (left) and "" (right).
Esentially I'm writing with just 4 fingers and I guess that's showing since I just have 320/360 kpm
