    Hey.


    So I used to be a really slow typer (30 wpm or so), but relearned typing last year, and has served me fine ever since. To think I actually used my index finger as space.

    I sit around 70-80 wpm now, and although it's only slightly above average, it's better than 30.

    Anywho, that's my story.
    What's yours?

    Mine is 110+ WPM last time I checked on my trusty keyboard. I'm not as fast though when I'm on my phone or tablet.

    EDIT: I checked it about a 6 months ago. I'll check it again tomorrow.

    it took me 3 minutes to type this . . . lol
    . . .
    really though i type slow but not that slow . . . its because i cant spell worth shit . . . so no matter how fast i go i still need at least 3 minutes to post something like this . . . even with the horrid punctuation and grammar . . . so i selected the lamest option available

    It depends what I'm typing, I do have to take my time. So ?? Words Per Minute.

    I think it's something above 110+ words per minute. Heck, I typed this in about 15 seconds or so.

    I did the test years ago and got something like 125, just did it again and got 94 :unsure:

    Might be the odd position I'm sitting in, or the fact that I have a rubber cover on my keyboard.

    Edit: re-took and got 100

    Typing speed in those online typing tests: 60 WPM.
    Typing speed when I'm typing my own text: about double that.
    I get lost and confused.

    I got 89... but it wasn't perfect... >> My WPM depends on what keyboard I'm typing on, and how complex the wording needs to be.

    Running.
    Depending on how many cups of coffee (16 oz. cups)
    1 cup is 80 wpm.

    2 cups = x2
    3 cups = x4
    With copy and paste I have about 50000 wpm.

    Last time I checked, I was like 90 WPS. The only thing really hindering me isn't typing so much, it's that I am actually dyslexic, so trying to read and properly spell a word at the same time really hinders me.
