I scored 106WPM, 104WPM, and 103WPM with 95%-97% accuracy, getting me 3 spots in the top 100 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)"><br><br>
What do you guys get...?<br><br>
Wierd thing is I don't use the "standard" typing method, i'm a self-taunt typer, I use my own method.

I have that problem but when people are saying it.. Like if someone tells me there phone number and im suppose to type it, i can rarely process it without asking them to repeat the number.

I did that before and got like 32 wpm. I get way higher than that when I don't have to read something and then type it, and just type what I'm "thinking."<br><br>
That, like 32wpm still.<br>
Probably like 50-60wpm without having to read something on a bad day. Mavis Beacon I heard was highly bad to base your wpm on, but I passed 90wpm constantly on it.<br><br>
*takes it again anyway*

About half way through the test I make an error and then thats it, I just start bashing the keys because I get pi$$ed off. I'm a pretty fast typer... although I'm not even that fast, everyone says that I make it look natural becuase I use all my fingers instead of just the index and middle fingers like most people my age do.

This is how i type.. And it seems if im scoring 100+ wpm on my tests that its a really nice way to type...<br><br>
left hand: pinky for shift, ring finger for the "A" key only, and middle and pointer fingers for everything else on that side of the keyboard... right hand: pointer finger for everything on that side, pinky for enter... thumb for space<br><br>
I'm left handed BTW.

We had bets in Mavis Beacon last year though - anyone with 2 hands vs me with one hand. (I'm pretty good at one hand. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">)<br><br>
I only lost against the network admistrator. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lachen.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Lachen"> Then again, I could only tie with him with two. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>

My typing can vary from hour-hour and day-day. Sometimes I can type really fast and not make any errors and then there are times when I just can't type at all, but I know I can type fast because people always say I can, or at least compared to them.

As an average over 3 tests I got:<br><br>
55 WPM.<br>
81% accuracy.<br><br>
That's actually a lot better than I used to be able to do! I guess all the typing I do has helped me improve. I'm actually 83% faster than I was 8 years ago, but about 13% less accurate, so I guess if you even things out that is an improvement <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> .<br><br>
Nice find btw! REP for you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"><br><br>

working a phone job helped me a lot with that. i now have kinda a buffer - if I hear somebody telling me - for example - a phone number I take the whole thing in but process it a bit at a time

The finland one ismuch easier than the business alliance one. I got 87WPM raw, 85 net, (97% accuracy). But on the alliance one, I think it was like 78 WPM net. I can type way faster when, thinking though, as well.
