I havn't been complamented in the same way that cent has but I work in a help desk where, if i have a particularly noisy keyboard, customers have on occasion said 'boy you're fast'.
So yeah, out of curiosity
how fast can you type? wpm? if you don't know try http://www.typeonline.co.uk/typingspeed.php I just got 51wpm (used to be close to 60 )
how do you type? 'asdf-jkl; home keys', '2 finger typing', i'm sure there are variations
how much time do you spend typing? I put a keylogger on my computer because I keep forgetting my password and noticed that i barely did any typing on my computer (mobile phones and what not)
Oh and a big one, do you look at your keyboard? I call bullshit on guys who claim to be able to type in a high percentile without really investing deliberate practice into it and I bet this is the deciding factor.
