Default What typing style do you use?

So, what typing style do you use? From the simple two fingers typing to the standard, and rather regarded correct way of typing with the rows, typing has always been a key technique to ensure that you get that online, virtual message of yours to that other end.

For me, I am guilty with the fact that I type with an awkward style of using two fingers, and other fingers in unison based on the formatting of the keyboard itself. However, I don't get the fact on why typing with only two fingers and such is an "unprofessional way", as some officials and people have told me. Typing exists only so you can get that message you want to virtually send over with text fast, and to me, it's somewhat faster to use a double index finger combination over having to crunch up your arms, and type with all 8 fingers, and with the thumb as a liability for the <Space> bar. However, that is my opinion. Gimme' yours. O_O

Mine is kind of a mix between proper and nonproper typing. I don't keep my fingers on the home row, but I use most of my fingers to type and I know where they keys are without looking and whatnot.

I can't believe I'm the only person to have voted Standard so far. You guys need more practice typing the correct way.

Hmm, I type weirdly. I use "Standard" with my left hand but with my right hand I just use my index finger.

I guess I would be other. I sort of have my two hands other the keyboard not in the standard form, and then just type. It's quite fast because I've memorized where all the keys are.

Both middle fingers; I'm quite fast writing with them, though. I'm learning the ten-finger technique, though. Fear me.
