Default Words Per Minute

I don't think this question has been asked on CF. Well how many words per minute can you type? I just tested my self right now and got 84 WPM. How about the rest of you guys?

I guess it'd depend on what word you type...

84 sounds like an awful lot. What were you typing?

I'd definetly consider me a fast typer

I usually get around 80, but my accuracy get's pretty bad when I try and go over. I'd say around 60 with almost perfect spelling and everything.

Thats quite cool.

I decided to do the fishing in finland one, and got these results:

Gross speed: 65 WPM
Errors: 3 words
Netspeed: 62 WPM
Accuracy: 95%

I'm happy with that but yeah, I get what David means. Like now for example, I dont have to read as well, but it's coming from my head, and so the process it much faster.

Did it again but faster with more mistakes and got:

76 WPM
with an accuracy of 86%
