Last week we asked you all to tell us how fast you type. Most readers claimed they could type (composing, not transcribing) at 60-69 WPM. Now, while there was largely a regular bell curve to explain all the other typing speeds, there were a surprising amount of people who can type at 150+ WPM. Let’s just say we’re impressed!
Out of 300 total votes, the statistics are as follows: 14% type at 60-69 WPM; 14% type at 70-79 WPM; 11% type at 30-39 WPM; 11% type at 40-49 WPM; 10% type at 50-59 WPM; 9% type at 80-89 WPM; 8% type at 20-29 WPM; 6% type at 150+ WPM; 6% type at 90-99 WPM; 4% type at below 20 WPM; 4% type at 100-109 WPM; while all ranges between 110-149 WPM received less than 2% votes each.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
We’re very surprised to see so many MakeUseOf readers who can type at over 150 words per minute!
This week’s poll question is: How Long Has It Been Since You Wore A Watch?
Geeks, teens and twenty-somethings mostly ditched their watches as soon as they got their first mobile phone. But these days even watch-lovers and old folk are finally leaving their watches at home. When did you stop wearing a watch? Or do you still wear one?
For the sake of the poll, include fob-watches and other single-purpose timekeeping devices as watches.
Do you still wear a watch? Why/Why not?
