First attempt got me:

I know I can do better, especially if I know what I'm typing versus trying to follow words across a screen. Complete thoughts are much faster to type than reading and typing at the same time, I think. Then again, I've done tests like this before and hit 120 no problem, so maybe I'm just having an off morning, hehe.

I look at the keyboard when I type. When I type normally off the top of my head it's insanely fast, probably around 120wpm+. On that site though, I had to constantly look at the screen and figure out where I was, so I only pulled:

Haha this was quite interesting. I expected faster, realized it is as fast as I can go. Here are my results:

Keystrokes 388

Correct words 69

Wrong words 2

79 words. Not too bad for someone with big hands on a brand new 13" Macbook :P

 

Maybe I'll give it a shot at work tomorrow where I type all day every day lol

Despite being a computer technician, and being at a keyboard all day every day, I'm not actually that fast at typing.

 

Edit; I think I'm a faster typer when typing what I'm thinking. But when I'm reading and typing down what I see, that's where I get slow. Either way, I'm not a fast typer.

I'm sure you do. I know I type a lot faster when I'm just thinking about it in my head and know what words are going to come next. It's much harder when you have to read words that don't flow together. I don't think 55 is that slow either, though....I know people who type a lot slower than that.

Yeah. There are a lot of people who type slower than me, but they aren't 'computer experts'!

True, but on that same note, I know people who majored in computer science, and can barely navigate the internet. Just because you can tear apart a computer or are good at programming, etc, doesn't mean you can type quickly, hehe.

I probably also type faster when I know what to type in advance.
