Default Re: correct vs fast

How many of us here actually still look at the keyboard when typing? I hope most of us here that areregular members aren't looking as much since we post so much, lol. I don't look at the keyboard. Only the times I get messed up I do. But even when I mess up a work, I can backspace and retype it without even looking at the keyboard still. That's how you can pick up the pace. I suck at numbers though.

I can get around 80-90WPM without looking at the keyboard, and thats with an online test where you have to read, getting about 1-2 errors.
I'd probably be a bit faster writing my own stuff like now from my head.

I'd say a balance. Theres no point typing fast but making loads of mistakes to correct, and its stupid to type slow just to make sure you don't make any at all.
