21 WPM but I only have one good hand. >_>

#5 Edited by konvikt_17 (22278 posts) -

im surprised how well i did without looking at the keyboard. hell i was even able to type this without looking at the keyboard.

its only when i make a mistake that i have to look at the keyboard so i can reposition my fingers. i type with my first three fingers on each hand. dont even use my thumb. instead i use my pointer finger for the space bar.

not the best typer, but i get by.

I think I did ok considering I'm sleepy.

I can't say I'm surprised - I know I'm not a fast typer.

Fuck new GS...


I would've been twice as slow if the words required punctuation

#9 Posted by Netret0120 (2255 posts) -

80+ without punctuation

60+ with punctuation. I used MSN messenger often before whatsapp was a big thing.

#10 Posted by xMP44x (425 posts) -

Not my best score, but not my worst. I prefer using sites like TyprX or TypeRacer since they give actual quotes and punctuation, admittedly.

#11 Posted by jim_shorts (7320 posts) -

Usually I score about 70 WPM but the keyboard I'm on right not is not good for this kind of test so I guess you'll just have to take my word for it.

#12 Posted by Makhaidos (1614 posts) -

53 wpm. I'm quite proud of that, since I'm one of those guys who types looking at the keyboard and by only using his index finger.

#13 Edited by LexLas (4332 posts) -

Mines says 69 wpm, you beat me by 2. Yout ype dam fast dude.

#14 Posted by achilles614 (4864 posts) -

Not bad on a laptop keyboard. I type with my index fingers mostly and sometimes my middle finger and pinky.

Wait till some programmers get in here, they'll wreck us :P

#15 Edited by Aljosa23 (25404 posts) -

99 WPM

I hate this new image system

#16 Edited by GazaAli (23237 posts) -

Not bad I guess.

#17 Edited by 0Hamburgher (957 posts) -

I don't know why, but I expected that the people with high post counts would have faster typing speeds.

#18 Posted by Jd1680a (5948 posts) -

This is my personal best. For what ever reason, I would go into a mood where I would type better then other times.

#19 Edited by 0Hamburgher (957 posts) -

Glasses on this time :)

Now it's time to do something productive with my life bye bye

p.s. and I don't look at the keyboard when typing, I just couldn't see the damn words on the screen.

Oh and xmp44x looks like you're champ so far.

#20 Edited by Trail_Mix (2021 posts) -

Yeah, I figured it'd be around the 50s.

#21 Posted by lamprey263 (24412 posts) -

from previous tests I'm at 70WPM with near perfect accuracy, but more casually I probably type more like 60 WPM

#22 Edited by lamprey263 (24412 posts) -

I just got 86 words a minute but I missed 2, 94.19% accuracy

wonder if it penalizes me when I hit a wrong key then hit back and correct because I did that

EDIT: on another try got 91 words per minute with no missed words but got penalized on accuracy when I hit the backspace button when I saw a wrong keystroke

EDIT 2: oh wait, that's not accuracy raiting, that's I'm better than 95% of others that tried

#23 Posted by Crushmaster (4324 posts) -

I average around a hundred on a good keyboard (this laptop's isn't the best...). So, one hundred.

#24 Posted by Morphic (4345 posts) -

On this horrible laptop keyboard i can do 64 but on my pc keyboard i can probably do in 90s

#25 Edited by touchscreenpad (220 posts) -

This is what I got on the first try and at the moment I still feel like typing fast...-_-

#26 Posted by kraken2109 (13125 posts) -

70 on a bad day, 80-90 on a good day

#27 Edited by Lone_Wolf_Lance (121 posts) -

32 wpm. I use both my index fingers and always look at the keyboard.

#28 Posted by GazaAli (23237 posts) -

So it seems that everybody in this topic is either on a horrible keyboard, not on their best day, or type with the index fingers and look at the keyboard.


#29 Posted by KiIIyou (27151 posts) -

Got 32


#30 Posted by TAMKFan (32808 posts) -

I got 42.

#31 Edited by Twisted14 (3497 posts) -

Had a couple of tries, 84 was my best, I average about 80.

Posting the result won't work for some reason.

#32 Posted by xWoW_Rougex (2768 posts) -

First try with bad keyboard: 91.
Second try with bad keyboard: 99

First try with laptop: 94
Second try with laptop: 92

I write faster with my laptop but I spell wrong more. :(

#34 Posted by PiscesChick93 (10688 posts) -

53 wpm :)

#35 Edited by alim298 (1664 posts) -

Still I type "y" with my left hand. Can't get away with it....Typing Test

#36 Edited by comp_atkins (31589 posts) -

74 currently.. i don't really like this format because the words don't flow... so when i read them in my head i'm tripping over them :)

#37 Posted by Riadon2 (1609 posts) -

Roughly my average speed when using 2 fingers (and a thumb). I seem to be physically incapable of moving my hands much faster, although sleep deprivation doesn't help.

#38 Edited by wcsteez (8 posts) -

according to typeracer, 126wpm @98% accuracy.

#39 Edited by lazyhoboguy (1678 posts) -

Got 81. My wpm depends on how much punctuation there is. If there is a ton I might go down to 60, especially if there are a ton of numbers. Usually have to look down at the keyboard for numbers. If there are lots of short words I can zoom through.

#40 Posted by Barbariser (6731 posts) -

71 but in practice most people will be far slower than they can manage in this test.

#41 Posted by British_Azimio (2453 posts) -

Really depends on how loose my fingers are. I can do 120+ WPM on a good day.

#42 Posted by coolkid93 (6717 posts) -

66 WPM. Would've done better but my keyboard sometimes won't respond to the buttons I press. Accuracy was 86.something%.

#43 Edited by Flubbbs (3296 posts) -


#44 Posted by dissonantblack (34002 posts) -

i got 66 WPM

#47 Posted by GamerForca (7095 posts) -

I got 80.

#48 Posted by SolidSnake35 (58121 posts) -

65. I feel like learning to type properly would be something useful... but... you know...

#49 Posted by The_Gaming_Baby (6337 posts) -

89 wpm. Could have got more, I really slowed down about half way through for a few seconds before speeding back up again
