    typing speed does not matter
    unless you are like a court stenographer but they use some special keyboard and lots of shorthand

      dont feel bad, anon.
      here, watch this coder god fumbles while typing with less than that speed. he cant even touch type and still have to look at the keyboard like an actual boomer.

      Are you EVER in a situation where 60 WPM isn't enough? That's the speed of comfortable relaxed typing instead of coked-up panic mode. I wouldn't worry about it unless you actually feel like it gimps you. Nobody types 120 WPM constantly for a long time because they run out of things to say after the first 10 seconds and have to stop and think about the wording. That's why typing tests don't mean anything, you get the text fed to you without having to think about it. If it's a real world scenario you can't duplicate that anyway.

        mid curvers like you think parlor tricks and minutia matter while actual smart people just focus on getting things done
        they dont think about people like you meanwhile you seethe at them and desperately try to convince yourself youre superior to them because you can... type faster

    Shouldn't the average typing speed go down with all the touchscreen tainted zoomers and alphas entering the job market?

    We had a kid in our class who could instantly read any text backwards. He was also amazing at doing on the fly math calculations. I saw him working as a waiter a couple of months ago when parents insisted I eat out with them once in a while. (I'm not in any better situation myself mind you.)
    Fast typers are in the same boat, the skill means nothing by itself.

    funny story, i went to a temp agency to apply for a job and there was a typing test. I watched someone else take the test and all he did was copy paste the words on the screen into the dialogue box, it registered as 500 words per minute.

    I copied him by doing the exact same thing and got a call back the next day.

    embrace that ~60WPM and realize you have more time to think, so when programming you do less mistakes resulting in saved time compared to fast typing code monkeys.

    I would suggest supplementing with refusing to use shortcutkeys and achieve full zen mode with mouse clicking menus.

      Typing should always follow thinking, not the other way around.

    you just have to practice and actually push yourself anon. It's like learning any other skill, you need to really try to improve or you'll stay the same. If you just practice typing at 60 wpm your entire life, that's as fast as you'll ever get. There's 2 things you need to practice if you want to type faster, accuracy and speed. don't try to improve both at once. go for accuracy first, and then push yourself to go a little faster. then rinse and repeat.

    for training accuracy you need to build muscle memory. you want your fingers to automatically know how to get from one letter to any other letter. I recommend keybr.com for this. It'll give you a bunch of random letter combinations so you don't just learn common english patterns. it'll also give you patterns you missed more often until you get them right, and add letters one at a time. it's honestly reallyyy annoying, but it'll force you to build that muscle memory and i can attest that it helped me a lot.

    for training speed, i like monkeytype. just do the 60 second test and try to sprint as fast as possible while keeping accuracy. it'll help with endurance too. I like to set little goals for myself, like "i want to finish each line in X seconds"

    good luck fren, you can do it. It takes time but I promise the effort is worth it up to like 100wpm. I can do 120 currently but it's meh. From 60 to 100 you can definitely feel a huge improvement though, you'll definitely thank yourself later.
