I'm doing this out of spite or bragging, but I thought it was a mandatory class for every school (like mine) to learn how to type without looking at the keys. Anywho, if you feel you are good enough at it, I would suggest going to https://www.livechatinc.com/typing-speed-test/#/. right now my best is 43 wpm, see if you can beat me

Yes, they forced us to learn how to do this in 6th grade for half the school year. I thought it was an extremely useless skill at the time, but here I am many years later and I'm one of the only people at my office that can type without looking.
It definitely makes me a more efficient worker and makes responding to people a heck of a lot easier.

I also played a lot of those learning to type games as a kid, cause let's face it dial up sucked and it was one of the only games the library had to borrow

Just got 64 wpm on that test
You know as a prank I have thought about borrowing a mechanical keyboard and going nuts writing emails on a slow day and see how long it took for my coworkers to lose their crap. April first is coming up soon

I've been able to do since I was about 11... but I've been using a computer since I was about 4 (granddad owned a computer shop, I'm 28 computers were rare then). I do find if someone is looking over my shoulder it throws me off though.

Everyone in my office can type without looking... most of them are either from the age of MSN chat or software developers and have time to type a lot.

My answer is yes and no, as though I practice each day to train my mind to memorize the alignment of the keys, I have difficulty when I am either stressed or typing in low light.

Yes, except I sometimes glance down for numbers or less often used characters.

No, I can't. When I type without looking at it, I can't predict what actually I will write.

Yes - I rarely look, only when doing keyboard shortcuts that really stretch the fingers. There was no sudden "aha" moment when I realized I could do this.
