The impact of the QWERTY keyboard

A keyboard's arrangement could have an impact on how we think about the words we type.

The QWERTY keyboard may attach more positive meanings to words with more letters on the right side of the layout. Letter combinations that fall on the right side of the keyboard are easier to type, lending a positive meaning.

How the QWERTY layout appeared

Early typewriters frequently jammed. When letters were typed in rapid succession, they sometimes stuck together.

The QWERTY layout was invented in 1878 as a response to this problem. The layout has stuck ever since. With the transition from typewriters to personal computers, it became widespread.

Keyboard variations

It should be noted that the literal meanings of words certainly outweigh their QWERTY inflected association.

In several languages, there are keyboard variations with unique punctuation keys located in different places. There are also more letters on the right than the left. In the future, researchers plan to study the effects of other kinds of keyboards.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
