Hmm… sounds funny “types of typist,” but they do exist in today’s computer age. The preceding section describes the different levels of typists, which will help you determine what type of typist you are. You may fall under one or more categories under certain circumstances.

1. Beginner

A touch-typing beginner is not familiar with the QUERTY keyboard layout. You have to first know the nuts and bolts of touch typing. I recommend exploring this blog and reading each past carefully. Reading and following my Learn Touch Typing in 12 Simple Lessons will help you familiarize yourself with touch typing quickly. Do regular practice of a minimum one of hour to achieve your goals. Focus on every key as you type and remember the position of the finger on the keyboard. 

2. Hunt pack typist

A hunt peck typist is the one who is familiar with most keys and their location. He /she generally uses only one or two fingers to type. Besides, he/she also look at the keyboard when typing. If you fall under this category, you can quit hunt and peck habits easily by taking regular lessons daily because you already know the different positions of the keys on the keyboard.  Remember, hunt and pecking reduce your typing speed and harms accuracy.

It is a matter of fact that typing is an exhausting activity for a long period of time which makes a typist feel tired both mentally and physically.
