I Can Type Faster Than You!
Recently a friend noticed that the letters on my keyboard are worn out — and noted that it might be becuase my fingers go flying across the keyboard. . . A couple of people have noted how fast I type in the past. But it’s just natural to me. I guess it’s kind of noticeable when chatting online…it’s much easier to use digital mediums when your thoughts aren’t stuck in a queue waiting for your fingers to get the words onto the page.
I know back in high school I was typing at a rate of 55-60 words per minute when I had to take typing tests for temp and summer admin jobs (back then white collar temp jobs paid $20/hour or higher for a measly jr. high or high school student like myself!).
But today, I found out just how fast I type these days. When I saw the numbers, I re-took the test a couple of times to make sure it was reasonable, and boy was I surprised. . .
According to the online typing test, I can type 83 words per minute! WOW!
How fast do you type? Take the test and then come back and leave a comment to let us know. I’m curious to find out how fast people type given that we all interact with the computer daily – across jobs, ages, status, countries, etc.
