My experience with Qwerting has led me to reconsider whether it is really that effective.

Did you think it was effective? Do other people? Most people? Is it done because it's thought to be effective? Superstition relevant? Pseudoscience? Science? Medicine?
Is qwerting: fun? Healthy? Strenuous? Expensive? Time-consuming? Annoying? Difficult? Important? Noisy? Dangerous? Does it produce a tangible result?
Is it usually done: alone? In the company of others? with the help/cooperation of others? Is it done: at home? at work? Elsewhere? Can children qwerty? Animals? Can you qwerty someone? Or something?

Does one turn off the lights in order to see something better? Something that emits light?

Or does one close one eye, then turn the lights off and open the closed one, so the first eye will be adjusted to the dark? (Kind of like the "Pirate Eyepatch" myth on MythBusters.)

Is it turning down the lights in order to watch something specific on TV? To make it easier to see? To set the mood? To reduce glare? To be able to have a lower brightness setting on the TV? Is the goal to save electricity? To reduce eye strain?

The lights are irrelevant! the only thing is that one usually qwerts with the lights of, just as one turns them off when watching TV.

Is it turning down the lights in order to watch something specific on TV? It is not the act of turning the lights off at all; the thing you see in TV can be any of a range of films To make it easier to see? To set the mood? To reduce glare? To be able to have a lower brightness setting on the TV? Is the goal to save electricity? To reduce eye strain?

Are you watching TV? Yes A specific show? No, a film Does the show tell you to turn off/dim the lights? "Twilight Zone" relevant?No>both Or a scary movie?Possibly, but it could be not scary, too

Does qwerting help you: see the film? Hear the film? Understand it? Can you do it with any film? Is the language of the film relevant? Or subtitles? Or dubbing? Is it learning a language by watching a foreign film with subtitles on?

*** SPOILER ***
Qwerting is watching a foreign film to learn a language, possibly with subtitles. Traditionally it has been regarded as a good was to pick up vocabulary (esp. slang).
