    Visit the Typing Test and try!
    Yeah, mistakes are pretty easy to make on these, it's different for random words and for actual sentences too. I get very shaky, even though I've been typing regularly for the last 16 years.

    Worst part is that it's only a minute. I actually do worse when the time is shorter. Conversely, I get bored easily too and start slowing down on these. In a real paragraph it's a bit easier.

    98 wpm.
    491 chars in 1:00 min.
    Accuracy 96%.

    Broadcast captioners (captions on TV) can write +250 wpm on a steno machine, and I bet gamers would excel in that field. It's typing with syllables instead of individual letters if that makes sense. Mark Kislingbury holds the Guinness record at 360 wpm.

    95 wpm is my best on english. English is not my mother tongue but I write it a bit faster than swedish (one of my mother tongues) and very much faster than finnish (my other mother tongue). I get like 50 wpm when writing finnish mostly because the keyboard doesn't suit the finnish language at all.

    This is my third try a little better than my first. I voted too early I guess I put around 65-80 but a lot of those words were super short. Anyway, I don't really know if gaming can be attributed to faster typing (although it would make sense). I've met some molasses like typers in WoW and other MMOs. For me it wasn't gaming but rather the fact that my computer teacher in middle-school would put his homemade cardboard covers over our keyboards and make us type the whole 45 minutes like that so I don't have to look down at mine anymore. I used to hate him for it but now he's a hero to me...saved me so much time on school papers.

    I managed about 65 WPM. Coulda done better if it wasn't as cold in here (I'll try again later when it's not as cold)
