It's probably the reason why, after years of learning to use my whole hands to type, I still revert to two finger typing and slam the keys with gusto.
Interesting. I was given very soft (I guess 'learner') keyboards at school, and have never hit keys hard enough since. I usually just don't know when I've activated the key. I have a mechanical keyboard now, which clicks in a tactile fashion when the key's traveled sufficiently far, so I'm much better now.
