I Type Really Fast

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 158 People


    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...

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

    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...

    My teenage daughter said recently,

    "I watch you and think - wow, she's like a machine!" AND I don't look at my fingers ever!

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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

    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...

    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...

    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.
