I'm not talking about learning or introducing commands, but how to work by switching between modes, and using normal known commands. Do most vim users stay more in normal mode instead of in insert mode? I find it impossible to use vim more in normal mode. Apart from Replace mode, how can anybody type without being in Insert mode?
Example scenario: I sometime copy a paragraph from a web browser to vim. After that I will edit it into bullet points from a paragraph.

<enter>). I have being wondering how to do
<enter> in normal
mode, so that I don't have to switch to insert mode just to do an
I also type my remarks in Insert mode.
