I back up all my pics but keep to work on in Lightroom between 10 to 15% max, sometimes less. Then prints are much less than 10% of that, closer to 2-5%.

It seems I do not take enough care taking pics with so many discarded.

I would say that it is more a reflection of careful selection and editing, which is a good thing.

What would be others "keep" percentage?

If you shoot sport with the camera running at 8 fps, you are only likely to keep a tiny percentage. If you trek through the woods looking for the perfect view, you might take 10 or so shots with different exposures and see which one comes out best when you process it, so it would be 10%.
