    Right now I'm typing 40 wam. Because I'm wearing a wrist brace, it;s hard to type with it.
    (Doctor tomorrow..)

    Somewhere around 100 WPM. However, I am a freak, and I type almost exclusively with two fingers. I use the my index fingers, and sometimes my middle fingers, but my ring, pinky and thumb are virtually never used. I can type pretty much looking at my computer screen with the occasional glance down as I obviously don't have my hands in a proper sequence I have to reposition at times.

    Same here!! I use my first two fingers, and my middle fingers occasionally, but it's rare that I use my other fingers

    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.

    It's not a grammar topic. (Remember what happened last time?)

    I use all my finger, but barely use my pinky.
    Once I type almost 500 word in 5 minutes.

    This. WPM means absolutely nothing if it's nonsense. I pride myself on almost flawless typing, and when I do make mistakes, they're promptly fixed. I just took a typing test and scored 97 WPM with no technical errors, but having to back space maybe half a dozen times to correct an accidental keystroke or misspelled word. So I'd probably be over 100 if I didn't make any mistakes.

    ^^This is what I wanted to say, but I think SR put it a lot nicer then I would have.

    If you can type 100 wpm, but are not accurate, then you really aren't typing 100 wpm.

    If I make a mistake, I'm like OCD and have to correct it without going any further or it'll bug me for the rest of the paper I'm writing

    I don't write much, I type all of my stories/books.
    But some keyboards are different.. In school they would cover the keyboard up so you didn't see it.

    YES!!!! I am such a freak, I can't stand mistakes or misspelled words. If Word or Firefox alerts me that I've misspelled something, I have to immediately fix it because the red underlines drive me batty. If I make a mistake when writing with pen, I have to throw the entire piece of paper out and start over because I can't stand scribbles. I'm an environmentalists worst nightmare. I also went INSANE in school when the teacher left chalk marks on the board. I would have to get up in the middle of the lesson and clean the chalk board.
