Yeah this test was hard b/c it's so random. The others are more like paragraphs from books so you can read ahead/think ahead. This one tripped me up a couple times so I did worse.

That's interesting. I'm used to typing what I see, but when my boss occasionally dictates to me it seems I can type faster

Now I got 294 WPM.

I Googled and tried some other typing tests, and my results have been between 86 and 113, which seems a lot more realistic. Although, man...if I could really type 294 words per minute...

well, I know I'm a fast, accurate typer, but this is ridiculous:

575 characters per minute
106 correct words
1 wrong word

Last time I was job hunting, I tested over 100 wpm at two different temp agencies. Everyone was looking at me like I was some sort of freak until I told them I played the piano for many years. That seemed to mollify them.
