    This link might contain cookies. Spoilers : it does not, it's just a trap link towards something I write. Sorry...

    According to that test I write around 55 words per minute, however I write a lot faster when I'm typing something that actually makes sense

    Y'know, I've never checked... I can type without looking at the keyboard, though. I guess that's something!

    Edit: 48 WPM =P Seriously, your typing slows down when you're asked to think about what you're typing

    Between 50-60 wpm.

    I thought I was going to do much worse than that honestly.

    102 WPM was what I got a couple years ago. I was at a Job Corps center and in my particular trade you had to be able to do at least 65 WPM to graduate. We'd sometimes hold typing wars with our instructor.

    I was the second fastest the entire time I was there. =D

    I may have slowed down a bit since then though.

    From copy 50-60 WPM on a manual typewriter, 90-105 on electric typewriter and computer keyboard; and i can do keypads left and right handed.
    First started working with computers in ~1978 - got into computer-graphics and animation in 79.
    I've also operated several generations of key-punch machines for program and data entry for mainframe computers.

    Trivia: The QWERTY keyboard layout was deliberately designed to slow the typist down to prevent jamming on manual typewriters.
