Why users of insist on using hjkl for moving the cursor when the dedicated arrow keys work just as well?

I'm dreading the answer is the mythology of faster typing because those arrow keys are so far away, but I refuse to accept so many people actually believe this, so there's probably a legitimate reason?


Okay, my informal research so far is showing that users really value the convenience of not having to bend wrists farther than it's comfortable. That's something I can understand. Thanks everyone!
