This an insulting question.

But to be clear, do you mean record "high" or record "low"?

You can list both.

I think it’s definitely possible. I’ve never done it myself, but I think it’s possible. I think.

In the dark, probably 3. In the light where I can see the symbol on the plug, usually 1, though if I'm not paying attention it might be 2.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I put a little dab of white acrylic paint on the top of a USB connector.

I get it right 100% of the time.

Takes even more tries when inserting into the Ethernet port.

5 tops.
Maybe 6.
Definitely no more than 10. (Except on rare occasion.)

On the rare occasion when I get it right the first time, I always pull it out and turn it over, because I'm sure it can't be correct.

CHEATER!


Though I've found that not all USB ports are oriented in the same direction from one device to another.
Do you also dab paint on on all your devices so you can match the dabs?

Haha. The imac seems to have a particular predilection to incorrect insertion.

The problem is every device has them in different positions.

Mac Mini, anyone?

USB-C to USB-A adapters?

old style USB goes in logo up - once you get this, it's easy to get it in one

I think it went to four or five, even after looking at the port and looking at the plug and determining which way it goes in. Rarely do I get it right the first time, and often it's three times.

Now repeatedly plugging it in ranges from one to three.

It seems to take me three tries. No more, no less.
