How old are you? - Typist

This quote was added by tedwom
I was going through quotes and there's so much variety in them, and I got to wondering, what is the average age of people on this website? I just turned 20, and I'm in college, and I go on this site to practice typing, pass time, or to just have something to do with my hands when I'm bored. How old is everyone on here, and why do you like to type?

20 here. Started practicing speed typing a year ago. WFH made me practice, like literally 90% of my activities is typing-based.

I turned 15 a month ago! I started typing two years ago because I wanted to increase my wpm and now it's really just for fun :)

I'm 24, typing is one of the only ways to chill my brain out when it's running wild. Not sure how long I've been typing on here but probably a few years - it's almost autopilot for me now haha. Lovely to meet you all!

20, I practice because typing is much faster than writing.

27! I learned to type better here so I could become a more competent person overall, and to prepare for my prospective career change to IT.
I work in prison and I want to get out someday.

I have to appologize first. Because my message is about to kill all your fun. You see, I recently lost my job. I have nothing else to do at the time being. And this is the only place I can think of, to hang out, and the only thing that I feel like doing. I believe if someday I should become No.1, the Champion, the fastest typist, in other words, to have beaten all of you in this sport -- sorry -- then I could somehow make money out of it. That said, to answer the question, I am 40. (Hello to "mumma" of the first comment, because she is also 40.) Does it make sense, what I said? Do you think my logic is flawed? -- Regardless, I know you are kind people and might want to give me some valid and practical advice. Thank you but I haven't revealed my location yet. When I do, you will realize you cannot help me. Because I am located in hell. The last statement is metaphoric.

I'm 35. About 5yrs ago I started adding things to my daily routine that hopefully might better me as a person over time. Learning to type correctly was one of those things. Been doing 10 games a day ever since.

Just turned 25. Been using WPM programs/websites since I was 7 years old. It's weirdly soothing, and a great way to pass time at work between appointments. I just like pushing my highest WPM higher little by little... almost to 200!

26, I use it when I want to distract myself from work. I used to do this in the office before quarantine but I do it at home too.

The average age won't tell you much. A more specific age distribution would me more helpful.

13; joined a computer science class in 7th grade thinking it would be about block programming, and it was, but a lot of the class was about typing as well. I type here because it's better than doing nothing.

A lot of the people in my class said that I was really good at typing and that they sucked when they didn't even try to listen to the lessons, so listen to the lessons guys.
