    [​IMG] 45 WPM... That is a bit slow.

    I type 115 average. I can go over 130 sometimes; but I'll probably make some mistakes in typing.

    I usually average around 65-80WPM, but I only use two fingers for typing.

    I type around 75WPM...
    It's about the same speed I'm talking, so even if I could type 100WPM or more, I can only write messages as fast as I can come up with the words and phrases I want to write down [​IMG]
    So I really don't think there is any use to be able to type 120WPM or so, other than pwning in Typing of the Dead [​IMG]

    70wpm when I took a test, but I can probably do it faster as that test made me type a lot of strange words [​IMG]

    Sinkhead: Yeah that's how I found it, just googled "words per minute".

    WOAH 86WPM! - with no mistakes according to that typing test thing.

    It's a life achievement.

    I'd like to thank my family, God, my friends, my classmates, and Bob.

    To be fair that test isn't a true representation of your typing ability, it's much easier and quicker to type as you think, than to copy from any given text. [​IMG]

    I'm a pretty slow typist myself....only about 30-40 WPMs. Never could get any faster than that. It probably didn't help that back in 1981 when I took the class, I didn't really take it very seriously.

    87 wmp, with one mistake. Though as someone else stated, you'd probably see better results if you could type from your thoughts rather than copying text.
