    my avg typing speed is 86wpm.
    speeds pretty important but useless without accuracy.
    i think you need like a min of 80 to be an assistant/secretary.

    On a average day I type around 60 WPM, when I'm in the zone I can do 80-90.

    I work in a call center.

    Typing fast is what I do in order to keep up with the diarhea coming out of people's mouths.

    In all seriousness though, I believe over 9000 would suffice as an answer.

    one of my cousins never bothered to learn proper typing. she pecks at the keyboard with two fingers and still manages to get over 60wpm. xD

    I can get to over 130 if I'm trying to type fast, and... hrm, I just took a test and tried to type normal speed and got 117.

    No bloody clue.

    But I've finished Typing of the Dead without any "help" from the system. So something fast, seeing I had three word sentences by halfway first level.

    And now you've made me sad over there being no English translation for TotD2.

    I can type extremely fast looking at the keyboard. I kinda memorized where most keys are but not enough to type a legible sentence.
