Need source sauce on pic OP.
As for typing speed, you need to (1) take a typing course to get the proper mechanics down ..
It's all muscle memory that just gets better and better.. can take years to hit a peak/plateau but feels good every step of the way
be sure to raise the heal of your hands off the key board so your hands float above the keyboard.
Lots of people get lazy and rest their palms on the area in front of the keyboard. In fact, some keyboards actually have a "palm rest."
but for speed typing raise off the palm rest...
try it. it works.
I played the piano too untill ~15 and my typing speed is only 60wpm
It's probably all just practice
I type at anywhere between 130-145wpm and really there's no single best method to learning to type fast. It's literally all just practice and figuring out what works for you, you'll just be gimping yourself if you try to do it the "best way" or whatever. Also, if you already type at at least ~80wpm then it's not particularly important that you type faster, I never type at 140wpm outside of typing tests because at that speed you're typing faster than you can think of the words, unless you're doing something like copying text you don't need to type very fast at all.

this is how it was done in my school 20 years ago
I am an hunter and pecker But I noticed just now how I can look away from the keyboard quite a bit whilst typing this reply. I guess with proper hand layout and practice I could get away from looking and speed up my words per minute. I am a lazy fucker though.
Same here on both counts. 120wpm sustained, 170wpm peak - only counting 98%+ results that I've personally attained.
I can keep up with most people's regular conversational speech.
