    I've been sitting at a keyboard 40+ hours a week for 15 years. I took three required typing classes on college. I use all 10 fingers when I type. And I only managed the following:

    .33 minute
    74 words per minute
    372 characters per minute
    96% accuracy (no wonder my code rarely executes properly the first time. )
    71 corrected words per minute.

    I'm so ashamed.

    Hunt and peck = you don't place all 8 of your non-thumb fingers on asdf jkl;

    That's touch-typing. Each finger only hits the keys in their own column, and you use all 10 fingers for typing.

    With hunt-and-peck, your fingers wander all over the keyboard, you might hit the E with your forefinger one time, and the next time with your ring finger because it's closer. Technically, it's slower (and looks a lot worse), and most people can't hunt-and-peck without looking at the keyboard. Although I'm one of the exceptions to that rule, and I imagine a few of the others here who h&p are also exceptions.

    Thanks John!
    I guess I'm doing something similar but different I started to try to explain what I do, but it became a novel so you will never know all the gory details... lol. I know though that I have some "words in my fingers" so to speak, so common words go much quicker than others and I use more fingers with those. I don't look at the keyboard when I type, and I know that I put accuracy before speed

    OK.. I did it:

    Heh - better than I thought I did the test twice, first time reading the text as I typed, second time - when I knew a bit of what to type - it went a bit little bit better. (I wish that they had had an option for split screen vertically though.....)

    2nd test:
    Test duration: 0.33 minute
    Uncorrected words per minute score: 54 words per minute
    Uncorrected characters per minute score: 270 characters per minute
    Percentage accuracy: 100%
    Average corrected words per minute score: 54 words per minute

    (First test was 48 wpm, same accuracy)
