How fast can you type?
That earlier post got me interested. As I mentioned, I type non-standard, mostly with my pointer fingers. I took this test a couple times and I type ~72 words/minute, ~1 typo/minute. Which is apparently pretty decent for two fingers (although not typist fast). Suck it, proper typing.
I wanna know how the rest of y’all do! :)
50-70 is apparently average for people who type regularly in their occupation, and 30 is average for the general population. Broader context (y’all know I like graphs, right?), here’s one study’s results:
Similar results from a different study:
I’m really curious how the tumblr crowd falls out.
Also I’d be interested to know if anybody else has an unusual typing… quirk…
ok, I see what happened there. o.o
hey, neat. i took the test four times since the first time i sucked, and ended up like this:
- 65 wpm, 3 wrong
- 74 wpm, 0 wrong
- 81 wpm, 1 wrong
- 78 wpm, 1 wrong
the first time i ran through the test it fucked with me to be copying the words i saw on screen, especially with the way they jumped around. then i started reading ahead and thinking of the words more as concepts than strings of letters to find and press, and my muscle memory kicked in i guess.
dang only 99 wpm with 1 wrong I am so out of practise send me back to grade 3 with the typing minigames ffffffff orz
dang today’s Gunnerkrigg page resonates with me so hard (hahahaha this turned into such a rambly personal rant oops)
the comments are kind of disheartening tho. the ones that are like “HA I KNEW ANNIE WAS SECRETLY IN LOVE WITH KAT” are a really shallow reading, but don’t really bother me like the comments along the lines of “Annie is being grossly possessive/how dare she try and make Kat feel guilty”.
which is terrible.
if you ever have to watch one american football game please watch the lions/eagles game going on right now. they’re playing in 7/8 inches of snow and they’re not allowed to clear the snow off the field
My uncle has been posting pictures since the start of the game guys you don’t understand this is hilarious
the lions fumbled six times in the first 18 minutes and are winning
I don’t ever watch football but this amuses me.
I never watch football but I watched this and it was fucking hilarious you don’t even know
ok this maplestory patch is like a literal gigabyte why this
