I would describe myself almost exactly the same way - I, too, learned touch typing in 8th grade.

So I am curious: Have you ever tried to switch the keytops around, to verify that you in fact take no visual clues from the keyboard?

If you had asked me a month ago, I would have laughed: Of course I "take no visual clues" - I have been touch typing for 40 years! The problem is: It turned out not to be true. I still could swear that I do not look at the keyboard, I just see myself making a lot more typing mistakes with those two letter pairs. I guess I would have been better off scraping off the keytop letters so there would be nothing to mislead me.
