  1. Hey all, this question has been in the back of my mind for a while, how fast does the EMC community type?
    Typing speeds are measured in Words Per Minute (WPM).
    You can see how many WPM you type by just taking an online test.
    I recommend this one:
    I type 65 WPM, but I never learned to formally type (I developed my own style of typing :p)

    Feel free to answer the poll up above or comment below!
  2. 71

    I never really liked these kinds of tests for one reason: It takes longer for me to read and relay the information into typing than it does for me to just type out my ideas straight from my brain.

    Is there a typing test that does that?
  3. I thought that too

  9. WPM? That's odd :p What if I only get to type Latin plant species names, and other people write "the the the the the"?
    Also, when you can't choose what you'll type, you'll spend a lot of time thinking about it.

    Okay. I got 78. On an iPad. Beat that :p When there were ten seconds left, I kept typing the word that was up next instead of the word that I was supposed to type, so that messed it up a bit.
    I'll try it on a real keyboard later.

    I blame just waking up and as sky said- I type faster when its thoughts coming out of my head.
