    Always Have

    People always tell me to slow down and there's no rush. I can't!! I've always spoken really fast and don't plan on changing that!1 People eventually get the hang of how I speak, enough to understand what I'm trying to say anyway :)

    For Some People

    Usually if I am excited then I talk the fastest. Really your geographic location determines to some people, how fast or slow you talk.

    My talking speed varies with mood,

    but I think, because my time-base is much faster than common (the whole being thing), sometimes there is like a temporal distortion and my voice becomes warped or I drop syllables without realizing it. For similar reasons, I sometimes eat food too fast... but that is another...

    My Normal Speech Speed Is 162wpm

    160wpm is considered speed talking... I'm not even going fast at that pace, I feel like my words are just.... sliding out if I go any slower.
