    Hello,

    please do this: http://speedtest.10fastfingers.com/
    and post your results. Also, do you touch-type (hands static, fingers on ASDF JKL;, use all 10 when typing) or are your hands moving when you type?

    Thanks

    I do 65 (somehow managed 75 on my last try) and I make very few mistakes.
    No touch typing.

    The test is flawed. It's just random words.

    I attempted to get into touch typing a few years back, but have ended up reverting to a mixture of one and multiple finger typing. For most things I just move my hands around the keyboard, but with other keys I hit them with strange fingers.

    This does remind me I should probably type properly though, and get back into it.

    Not bad for random words I guess. Would be much easier given proper sentences.

    Not awful but I wish I could type faster.

    I type all over the place using most of my fingers though.

    The point is comparing to others. Even if it were proper sentences it still wouldn't be as fast as you usually type since you type as you think, instead of as you read.

    I type with my two index fingers with moving hands, additionally I use my thumbs for the spacebar.

    The test is flawed. It's just random words.
    Stop complaining about things, seriously.

    I wouldn't really say this is programming-related, but I did it anyway:
    Code:
    Words per minute (WPM) 61
    Keystrokes             306
    Correct words          56
    Wrong words            0
    Probably could've done faster, but my laptop's keyboard is shit. Meh.

    Agreed.
    My brain makes me type 'phonetically', that is: I'll go to type something like "apple" and wind up typing "applied"...
    The weird sentences confuse my brain D:

    Touch typin.

    The fact that it's very nearly sentences but not quite really fucks me up.
    Ignoring all the misspellings I was correcting, I kept starting to type the word that should have followed, like "the" or whatever.

    Okay, it doesnt matter if you have 80 WPM or 120 WPM, but if you have 20 WPM, ugh, train your hands and then learn programming

    I barely use my right hand at all, instead I move my left hand a lot and use it to type almost everything.
    I should probably learn how to touch type.

    Apparently Imgur doesn't like Facepunch as a referrer so right click -> view image to view it.

    I'm not sure what type of typing I use, but I use all ten fingers and they move around the board. My right hand usually stays in one place while my left hand moves around.
