1 second quicker than shrewbie and exactly the same number of errors as furio. might try again in a second and see how much quicker i can do it without worrying about errors.
these numbers show that i spent way too much time on MSN messenger in my youth. the thing is, when typing in MS Word or Outlook i use autocorrect to let me go quicker by being lazy, so for example i never bother typing capital letters at the start of sentences.
if the test was measuring my speed in MS Word it would be much faster. however, my speed on a type writer would be fucking terrible cos i would actually look at what i was doing.
also, if you can find a copy of Typing Of The Dead, it's basically the best game ever created.
An average professional typist types usually in speeds of 50 to 80 wpm, while some positions can require 80 to 95 (usually the minimum required for dispatch positions and other time-sensitive typing jobs), and some advanced typists work at speeds above 120 wpm. Two-finger typists, sometimes also referred to as "hunt and peck" typists, commonly reach sustained speeds of about 37 wpm for memorized text and 27 wpm when copying text, but in bursts may be able to reach speeds of 60 to 70 wpm.
