How do you like to use your controllers?

For some weird reason, I've always had this thing when using keyboards: basically, I tend to use my left hand to press the arrow keys and my right hand to use the touchpad on my laptop. It's weird because it causes my hands to rest in a sort of cross as opposed to resting flat / naturally. Anyone else tend to do this?

Also, to make use of the fact that this is now a topic, let's discuss: have you got any other weird habits when it comes to using controllers / remotes / tech etc.?

I like them the way they were mapped.

My Xbox 360 controller is mapped the way I'd probably map a Super Nintendo or Wii classic/Switch controller. It allows me to switch between SMBX and Super Mario World with no problem at all. If I used the defaults, it would be like pressing B for a spin jump and A for a regular jump if you were on a Super Nintendo. The X and Y controls would also be swapped.

Keyboard? I never actually crossed my arms when using it. This wasn't a problem when using SMBX early on, although the "3-key limit" was annoying.

That's funny because, in a similar way, that's how I used the computer when I injured my left index finger tendon a few months ago. (Am still recovering. But a whole lot better. I can do just about anything but lift anything exceptionally heavy like a tire or couch.)

But to answer your question, WASD for movement, K to run, L to spin jump, Y to drop items.
