Physics. Most people develop a certain style of typing that can be easy to pick out. Plus, most of us are trained in touch-typing which involves certain layouts of both the fingers and keys. Because of the movements involved, it's a lot faster to press an F or a J compared to say a Q or a P. That's where the pattern recognition starts.
