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.
Words per minute (WPM)-47
Keystrokes-340(236 | 104)
You are better than 70.53% of all users (position 38533 of 130744 - last 24 hours)
And then I slowed down and did it again.
Words per minute (WPM)-51

I’m starting to love SAI now~ ♥ Linearting with it is super fun oh gosh, but a shame that it doesn’t have the texturish feel which I usually did in Photoshop :’D
