Just about to say the exact same thing.

I get like 110-130wpm consistently after a tiny bit of warming up, and for sure my fingers can move fast but my brain can't even process that fast. In fact I get a lot of typos not because of my typing ability, but because my brain can't even process how to spell things and send that signal to my fingers in time for how fast my fingers are moving, if that makes sense. My brain is such a bottleneck while doing typing tests that I actually forget how to spell words because it's overloaded.

Besides judging how fast someone types with essentially randomized 'stranger' text/paragraphs doesn't make any sense, a typing test should be like typing up a paper you wrote by hand or something, that you can read and type at the same time but know what it is saying beforehand.

I have no clue if any of what I just said makes sense.

Rofl, an arial font bigot.

When I want keyboard font advice I post at Reddit/typography, they have pros. And I collect lots of Karma.

speed typing tests arent that great , the give you a basic benchmark and are a good fair test for multiple people to do but they dont give you a real world speed. Ive done a ton of translation jobs when I was younger from french to english and just pre-reading the text I translated made my wpm go from 100 to about 130 , writing things that just come to mind or answering ocn posts my max is about 135 , not a speed typer by far.. The problem with the tests is that you dont know what is coming , its twice as much work if your brain need to anticipate , read , translate and type the resulting text. Its easily compared to a graphics card test , who cares if it hits 14k on mark11 , what about nvidia surround or eyefinity , what about 3d , what about racing games ... benchmarks give a decent starting point to see how you do but I would never dare to call myself better or faster based on it , but I give props to people over 100 because I consider that pretty serious skill.

Yeah, I got that one too. It's a great keyboard. The only thing that you lose with it are all of those flashy features like a backlight or a USB hub.

This. My point proven. Typing tests aren't accurate because you need to throw in your processing skills.
