Are you a 'proper' typist? - Page 4

post #31 of 186
I'm a proper-sh typist.
I don't use the right shift key either.

I have to agree. I am around 35-40 wpm and use all my fingers. I am faster if typing from my head, but when copying, I am slower. I do a combo of touch and look typing.

So those that con do 100+ WPM, show a screen shot from this page.

I love this thought I would be a point and click while staring at my fingers forever!!

Then I got an office job and just forced myself to learn to type properly and know I dont have to stare at my hands (all the time)

Took like 2 years though...still a work in progress I have some bad habits

I did it twice and was getting 60wpm. That test really messes with me though, the moving blue highlight messes me up for some reason. I'd rather it just show me the paragraph and have me type it instead of it constantly changing in front of me.

Yea, it is a little annoying. There are many other WPM pages to test on, that was just the first one I clicked on.

I'm a proper typist for the most part. The two areas where I deviate are that I use my nose to hit the space bar and when I hit the enter key I spin my computer chair around first and then flamboyantly hit the key with my right index finger, usually while saying something like "Bam!" or "Uuuungh".

Cool site tried it and got 35 and 39.... All the comas and quotations and dashes in that paragraph definitely slow me down. Not use to having to use those so often.

Different story though when reading from text!

I think I'd probably be faster when I'm back on my lycosa.

I got 63wpm on the Astronaut test. I corrected a lot of my errors on the fly, so only ended up with 3.
