Hunt and peck typer, never bothered to see how many words per minute, faster than I can write that's for sure.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

Nice. I got 68.

Although, I really don't see the point of something like this- you're never going to need to type at your maximum speed.

It's still reflective of how quickly one would be able to write one's thoughts once they're formed. I see your point, though.

Yeah... have fun typing up a social or english paper at 90 words per minute. I can guarantee you that you'll fail.

Your misconception is that how quick one can form sentences nulls the speed-benefits of the ability to type faster than this rate. While this is true to some extent, how quick one types an idea usually means how quick one can move onto the next thought.

I'm in the mid 80's. tulle is in the 90's. I'm better at ping pong, though, so it's cool.

With hunt and peck I'm at about 55 words per minute at my best... that's why I'm forcing myself to learn touch typing currently. Only at about 35 words per minute with that though (only been going a few days intermittently) .

55 with hunt and peck? That's pretty impressive.

For short bursts (the tests cover a short duration) . A longer term average is probably high 40s - 50, which isn't so brilliant.
