I Type Really Fast

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 157 People

    Years Ago Worked For a Typing Service

    The more I completed the more I made.  Since it was a job I was doing while in college, I wanted to make the most of the time I worked.  I got really fast & managed to make a lot more money than I could at any other job.  As a result, I managed to become quite...

    Apparently.

    I was at my aunt and uncle's house for Christmas and I was having an IM conversation with someone, my cousin was like, "OMG!  It sounds like a hurricane on the damn keyboard!" Then, the other day, my sister came in my room and I was talking to her, I...

    Always Have Since Keyboarding In High School

    I learned to type rather quickly, if I recall it was my first class that I actually excelled in quite a bit! Though I'm no typing speed-demon, I can safely type-up around 100-120 words a minute so long as whatever it is I'm typing is familiar to me (nothing with a...

    Incorrectly, But Fast

    I failed typing in school because I couldn't do touch-typing. I have my own set of home keys. They are A, S, D, F, (spacebar), J, I, O, and the semicolon key. I have quite a natural talent for typing. I can make no mistakes while: 1) Watching tv or talking while typing 2) Have...

    Just Call Me Speedy...

    I'm not as fast as I used to be.  I worked as an audio typist for years, meaning all day every day was spent typing.  I got up to at least 100 wpm.  At that point I could even do it without even thinking about what I was typing.  I remember one day I was...

    Keyboarding

    My record speed was 74 WPM. But that was 7 years ago. A program said I typed extremely fast and it was three digits and not two! I don't think it was working correctly. How can I type over 200 WPM unless its very simple words? I type slow if I'm just writing up something. But if...

    I Type Faster Than I Think...

    That's the only reason my WPM would be lower than it should be.  I guess if you measure me in short bursts, I'm as fast as the rest of them.  Then I pause waiting for my brain to catch up.

    Different...

    I was always known to be the "Techy-one". When I first got my computer 2 years ago I was already using it as if I had it for about 10 years. Within the first year I was typing out paragraphs so fast I started getting awarded for it. lol wow I did this fast :O

    Yep

    I type on average at a speed of 85 words per minute when tested, however when tested I become a little nervous due to the setting and random phrases that are given.  I am also an audio typist, as I studied my A-Levels in a College, I got a number of courses free and...

    Quick. Efficient.

    I type so fast that by the time I find out I accidently hit the Caps Lock  button, I've already managed to type down a couple more sentences. It can get annoying sometimes to read over and realise how many spelling mistakes you've done, but it's usually quick and efficient.

    Yessir!

    My fastest clocked times were 105 and 108 wpm but my average is around 85-90 wpm. So, yes, I do type rather quickly. :)

    Weird

    I've been a fast typer ever since I was a little kid. In elementary school, we were required to take computer classes, It revolved completely around this typing software called "Type to Learn 3", which was basically just a stupid little game. I still remember one level: "a a ad...

    Learning To Type: One Of My Best Decisions

    I learned how to type in high school in '87.  I was the only male in the class, but I didn't care.  I loved to write and wanted to learn how to type correctly.  I found it's like learning to ride a bicycle -- once you learn how to, you never forget.   My speed went from 40...
