    In actuality, I type 40-60 wpm depending on how drunk I am and what keyboard I'm using. I never have to look at the keyboard, but that's probably because I'm blind.

    I took a typing speed test once in high school. I set the timer for exactly one second and to trigger on the first keystroke. I then proceeded to sit on the keyboard. I was fined for the damaged hardware and given high marks for scoring a typing rate of 1400+ words per minute.

    I average about 75 wpm on my Logitech Deluxe keyboard, and about 60 on standard keyboards.

    Fast enough for me to despise writing by hand. Usually I type fast enough that I rarely every think about it, I think last time I took a test I was around 80 wpm or something.

    At my fastest I can do maybe 60, 2 fingered, while looking at the keyboard, but I make lots of mistakes. Any recommendations on learning how to type faster, and without looking at the keyboard?

    I never learned to type. However I'm a pretty good speed-letter-pecker.
