How do you learn to position all your fingers at once in chords instead of one by one

How do you learn to position all your fingers at once in a single move in chords, or at least slowly at the same time, as i see in videos, instead of staring at the fretboard like dumb then bending one by one to get each note, usually putting first fingers 1 and 3 to use them as anchors to poorly pull the remaining ones to their positions.
Is there anything i should train, any guitar exercise, or maybe a hand stretching or finger independence guitar or not exercise. Or it will simply start working after a lot of years playing chords.
I feel extremely dumb trying to get a Chord like that. The only Chords i get without the need of looking to the guitar and placing them one by one like that, are the one where you only fret two contiguous string along 3 frets you know:
Finger 1 in String 6 in Fret 3 along with Finger 3 in String 5 in Fret 5.
Finger 1 in String 6 in Fret 3 along with Finger 3 in String 5 in Fret 5 and with Finger 4 in String 4 in Fret 5.
Well and lately also the:
Finger 1 in String 3 in Fret 1 along with Finger 2 in String 4 in Fret 2 and Finger 3 in String 5 in Fret 2 playing the rest of strings open.
I should add also the octaves, the ones with the muted string in the middle that usually run in the 5 and 3 Strings spaced by 1 fret. (Crawwwling in my skiiin xD, althoug this octaves sound pretty bad with me as i do too much noise, and i mean noise not note sound, on the muted string, i really have a fight with muted strings like i were knocking my pick against a stone when i meet them.)
I can decently make those without two much hassle in those positions and others (so this is about hand and finger positioning no matter where are you at in the fretboard).
But the rest are a mistery no matter how many times they repeat, some 3 finger chords and mostly 4 finger chords i fret them note by note and looking at the fretboard like dumb. Ideas, comments, suggestions, advices, wise experience revelations.
(Sidenote: any way less jerky to show chords in the forum without the hassle of uploading a picture or maybe a convention code to write them). (UPDATE I just found a chord generator you can link pictures from is that the best options looks easy http://chordgenerator.net/ is that what you would use)
