Why does changing font size make the keyboard feel different?

Font-size-conversion-chart

I've noticed over the years that enlarging the font size on-screen while I'm typing markedly changes the feel of the keys.

The bigger the font size, the better the keystrokes: they seem more "cushiony."

Lagniappe: the larger font size also enhances my accuracy. 

You might well ask, "Joe, how come you don't just use a large font as your default?"

Answer: because I can get a lot more words on the screen with smaller sizes, enabling me to edit on the fly more easily and accurately.

So it's a trade-off.

Try it, you might like it.

If not, let me know and I'll cheerfully refund every penny you paid for this information.

Because that's the boj way.
