It’s a right/left brain dominance thing like left or right handed. As you switch to and from your dominant hand even though it’s mostly muscle memory, things seem to often fire just a hair faster on one side.
You can solve it by dictation or becoming a 1 finger hunt and peck typist if you really want. At least for me it’s most noticeable when I move from the stronger fingers near the thumb to the weaker outer ones.
At least with my attempts at proper typing this is my experience.
I found that switching to Dvorak made mistakes like this much less frequent for me. The qwerty keyboard was actually designed to slow down typing to avoid jamming in typewriters, so it’s not exactly efficiently laid out. The dvorak layout, among other things, minimizes frequently messed up letter combinations.
I cut up and labeled the sticky parts of sticky notes to put on my keyboard, then made myself type up a paper using dvorak during undergrad. I’ve been pretty set since then. I’ve still have to use qwerty occasionally (GRE, public computers, that kind of thing) and at this point I find I can switch back and forth well enough. It helps that my less familiar keyboard (qwerty) is always written on the keys if I need a reference
Yeah. Like seriously, just two? Where are the rest of his? Should have called him out on that. More than the right brain rolling its figurative eye. And what’s this nonsense about only the left brain being able to talk. They’re all talking all the time. It’s a freaking cocktail party in there. It’s a wonder any of it ever comes out intelligibly.
The tricky part with solutions like these is that sometimes the head only moves half a mm on a pass depending on what it’s engraving. Sometimes it might not make a pass at all on a row. It might step back 2 or 3 lines on the y axis before getting to the next engrave part. That will be the hardest part to compensate for
