    Default Typing speed and type

    I am wondering if some types are more likely to be better at typing fast without compromising accuracy. I see typing on the keyboard as most related to S- it is a motor skill. I am wondering if S types are naturally better at this than N types.

    Then again there may not be a correlation at all. If you practice anything enough, you should get reasonably good at it. I'm pretty fast at typing but I've been doing it regularly for years.

    Here's a typing test:

    I got 82 words per minute, 2 errors.


    So post your typing speed and your type and let's see if any patterns emerge.

    My best was 76 wrds/min 0 errors but that was 10 years ago on a regular keyboard. These small laptop keyboards mess me up big time! Getting a full size wireless for Christmas (phew!) For the record I'm INFP (and male if that makes a dif anymore)

    Ooops, didn't see you posted a test link. I may have to try and compare the laptop keyboard against a regular size one...that will be interesting!

    75 wpm with 3 errors that all involved me ADDING STUFF IN BECAUSE OF WHAT I THOUGHT IT SHOULD BE. Ethebertha became Ethelbertha, and "thing" became "anything."

    Slowing down to 72 wpm on a different test, I only made one error.

    I'm too lazy to take a test right now, but I usually get around 75 wpm, with a few errors.

    I have an ENFJ friend who types over 100 wpm with no errors consistently. When she types, it sounds like she's just banging her fingers randomly on the keyboard.

    69wpm, no errors. I kept having to go back and fix the errors I did make though...it bothered me to have the red lines.

    That's what my mom says it sounds like when I type, but that's when I'm typing things out of my head, not looking at copy.

    Anything above 60 wpm is employable, I'm pretty sure.

    Gyah, me too. It's also really hard to type inconsistent thoughts and run-on sentences that aren't directly my own thoughts throws me off so much, too. Mostly the weird information and everything about those typing tests throws me off. When I was younger I used to test 85 wpm...I just know that I can type faster than I can talk, so that's good enough for me.

    And the typing test varies...as I found one of them to be much, much harder to type than the other one, as it had more capitalizations and weird things that easily throw me off, because I don't care to use them.

    I typed 60 words per minute with four errors.
    my type is xsfp.
    I don't think that this means much in terms of type, though.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.
