    What's your WPM/CPM (typing rate)?

    I was curious, so I checked on a few sites. Admittedly you're probably going to type more quickly for these than your average typing.

    ---Info on averages, etc.---

    "The average person types between 38 and 40 words per minute -- between 190 and 200 characters per minute. However, professional typists type a lot faster on average -- upwards of 65 to 75 WPM. A good typing speed compared to the general population would be over 40 WPM, but compared to professionals it would be in the 75 WPM range."

    Somewhere special
    Took the test. Got 78 WPM...

    So I am better than a professional typist? Something is wrong here. I mean, I did spend some time learning blind typing a couple of years ago, but it's not like I practiced a lot. *shrugs* My father types like twice my speed, and he isn't professional either.

    I never learned how to type normally. I use only 2-3 fingers on each hand, and its very weird but it works for me.

    103 on my 2-in-1 tablet, can normally maintain about 130 on my desktop. If you want some extra practice/something fun, you could try out which is basically just competing with other people on typing tests.

    So do I. I don't see anything weird in this.

    Took the first test, chose Tigers as the topic and went for 1 minute.

    2 errors, 98% accuracy and an adjusted speed of 101. I've hit in the 120's on tests that don't have punctuation and are just meaningless strings of words.

    At least I can hide behind not having practiced

    I believe I can text faster than I can type LOL.

    around 90-100 but I never type that fast unless I have to, on average 70-80.

    104 WPM. I'm not a native English speaker though. About 125-130 in my own language. But I have like 5% error rate at that speed, so it's not actually useful.

    My typing speed is up to 175 WPM over one minute and I am Captain on the fastest Speed Typing team in the world known as [10FF] on Nitrotype (look us up). We have Chak, Schollie, and other world-class typists on this team promoting the sport.You are most welcomed to watch our streams and talk shop with us about the sport on Discord. We can demo or show you some easy gear and tactical approaches that most people don't know. If you are 100+ and enjoy typing, we'll take you under our wing and into the fold.

    Got 111 on one of the tests. Thanks to years of MMORPG's before the existence & popularity of voice chat apps.
