14. I count in pairs.
When there is a large amount of individual items that I have to count I do it in pairs. For example there are eighteen items I pair the items by two and continue to count in twos to quickly get to eighteen. Another way I count in pairs is by finding a common number (lets say I notice things in pairs of five) I then use multiplication to quickly figure out how many pairs of five to get the product. It's an odd way to count but I find pairs (which I use more often) or common number pairing makes it a whole lot quicker than just counting 1..2...3..etc.
