The WPM are also based on the errors one makes. The more errors, the less actual WPM you type regardless of how fast you think you are.
Stating you type 90 or 100 WPM means nothing if the words make no sense, are garbled, or the grammar and punctuation stink.
I don't need to look at the keyboard to type, but then, I've been typing since I was 15 y/o. First in HS, then college, and finally when I found gainful employment.
Back in the day we used actual typewriters, not PCs with keyboards. Keyboards are extremely forgiving, as you can just delete and start over if something's incorrect. Which makes no sense to me, since so many of today's youth seem unable to type even one sentence that doesn't contain multiple typing errors and grammatical horrors.
