The shorter the phrase, the fastest you "can" type. This is muscle fatigue. Say loud "Tatatatatatatatatatatatatata" the faster you can. You will notice that the first tata's are faster than the last ones.
I figure out personal strategies and work with the way my brain/body works. When I read the quote ahead and forget about my fingers, I make less mistakes than when I'm focusing on my fingers and word for word. I've also noticed my hands pause when I'm about to make a mistake and that I am making a conscious mechanical choice out of habit to push through these moments in an attempt to type faster but wind up making mistakes. I've become sensitive to these moments and flow with them, allowing the pause while my fingers do a split second "re-calibration". When I do this successfully, I find myself hitting numbers over 100 wpm. The highest I've achieved on Nitrotype is 132 and 131 on Keyhero. My average is 85 and this is due mostly to bad habits.
Yeah. I'm at 70 now. How do people type so fast!? I've just moved up from ~60 to about ~70 through a new keyboard and a deliberate focus on key combos, like when I type "ce" I'm now using my left pointer finger on the "c" rather than using my middle finger for both. Is this good practice, or should I just focus on typing faster using standard fingers for each column of keys?
Whoah, pretty crazy, but most of what I get from the video is the rhythm and speed of his typing. It looks like he might be hovering around and hitting keys with non-standard fingers. I'm not sure what I can really learn from these videos other than inspiration that these typing speeds really are possible.
