The QWERTY keyboard was designed to slow you down

There are two theories regarding the QWERTY keyboard, the first one being that it was designed to slow you down when you’re typing. Why? To keep typewriter keys from jamming. That’s why QWERTY placed common alphabets at a distance from each other.

The other theory is that telegraph operators came up with that layout because it was easier (and faster) to decipher Morse code.
