It's personal; takes practice

I cannot take photos using the LCD. It just doesn't work for me. Putting my eye to the VF is like shutting the world out, and I can concentrate better on the photo. Not to mention that I can hardly see the LCD in daylight + I'm farsighted. I just feel if my eye is not on the VF, I'm doing it wrong. Don't know if that makes sense.

No, it doesn't make sense. There is no "wrong" (or "right") way of working. In the history of photography viewfinders are newcomers - for the first hundred years they didn't exist and people did fine.

However you view the scene - viewfinder or LCD - you need to concentrate on it. That's a matter of training yourself and practice. There are lots of times when using the VF is better than the LCD; lots of times when the LCD is better. Try composing a picture with the camera high over the heads of people in front of you; or at ground level.
