Words you Type Incorrcetly

Since we no longer write things down and rely heavily on computers to communicate, there are typing mistakes that occur almost daily.
The most common for me is From, which I type almost every time as Form, sadly spell check never catches it so I have to manually review.

I don't need to look at the keys and can do a decent WPM count, I tend to chalk it up for to error frequency and that it has become routine since I type pretty quickly.

Are there any words that you tend to type incorrectly every time you type them?

From - Form... FML

it's because many of us have what I call typing dyslexia: one hand is stronger than the other, so the letters typed with that hand come out faster.

it's another reason why you should always read out loud what you're about to publish, because even skimming with your eyes won't pick it all up.

incorrect.
my eyes usually always see my errors the moment they're typed.

I was always poor at typing was a one finger guy till I slowly added almost all the others and I find I usually type things out so rushed and miss pluralizing words like adding the S or ED at the end, that's my biggest one but I chalked it down to rushing and laziness.

it drives me nuts. I have totally rewired my brain to automatically type is this way instead of "just".

What you're saying makes total sense, but I'm a lefty and thus I am Left hand dominant. F and R are both on the left side so if I go with this rationale I should never make this mistake.

However you may be on to something

Often, I don't make a typo but spell out an entirely different word. It makes me think my brain is fucked. Which it probably is.

A real annoyance of mine is there/their/they're. I know exactly how each one is supposed to be used, but when I type, it's like my brain always just wants to type "there". But when I read what I type, the error is glaring. So there must be a different part for "outputting" language as there is for "inputting" language. I assume my inputter is a bit more developed.

What I find annoying is the proximity of "I" and "u" on the keyboard when typing on phone or tablet. My fat finger always hits the wrong one and it sure makes a helluva difference in correspondence
