Are You a Pecker or a Toucher? — 7 Comments

  1. I can type like a cat on fire, mostly because when I was growing up my mother instilled in me that I should “learn how to type because then you’ll always have something to fall back on”. These days, of course, legal professionals all have to do their own typing, so it serves me well. I was once clocked at 120 wpm.

    I think you will find that most women are touchers, and most men are peckers. Hee.

  2. I’m touch…took it in high school to be close to a pretty gal. Ended up taking it two years and it has served me well, both in my Communications career and, naturally, in blogging!

  3. When I was in High School they decided that I was on the college/professional track and therefore didn’t need to learn how to type. My sister however they felt was born to be a secretary and to typing class she went and then to a law firm and now a paralegal.
    So who laughing now??? My sister can type circles around me, I was a 1970’s hippie college drop out and even typing this is taking longer than it should. But still I persevere.
    So much for guidance counselors.

  4. That’s interesting. I can’t see a viable alternative to keyboards for masses anytime soon. Hundreds of thousands of cubicle workers all talking?
