Should you slow down? - Beanalog

This quote a été ajouté par beanalog
Most pundits will tell you that accuracy is more important than speed, and that you should slow your pace if you find that you are making too many mistakes. This has some truth to it, especially on Keyhero which appears to penalize mistakes in an exaggerated way; however, accuracy itself comes initially from thinking about each letter, and this is no way to attain typing mastery which ultimately requires the typist to not think in terms of letters but words.

I find it most comfortable to think in terms of syllables, not words and letters. Then again, I'm not getting any faster no matter how many tests I do so maybe I need a change of strategy.

Good point, mate. But here's why your're wrong:
You know how when you start reading you HAVE to think about each letter individually? But then you start learning how specific words look like on the page, so as you get better at reading you don't look at the whole word as much as you recognize its image.

It's the same in typing, only instead of reading, you're moving your fingers. At first you have to pay attention to each keystroke, but as time goes on and you internalize the movement of the keystroke, you also internalize the sequence of keystrokes associated to specific words.... So you no longer think about each keystroke individually.
Of course, the only way to do that is to mindfully practice the sequence until it's etched into your muscle memory. That means practicing slowly, and very intentionally.
