Do you think speed in typing is important in making money? Like answering or creating paragraphs in MyLot or some review sites. How fast do you think can you type? I don't really type that well but I do try my best to be able to type better. Practice helps us in any endeavor we do. Answering questions here in My Lot has develop my typing skills which is a good thing for me.

I type decently fast. Just enough to take a dictation. My typing style isn't the formal one. You know, the kind of typing style you're forced to learn in school. I basically you only one finger on my right hand and two or three on my left. More than enough to key in the letters i need in an instant. I have difficulty with punctuations though lol! I get confused with them but it's fine. i can type without looking too but that depends on the type of keyboard i'm using. Maybe my typing skills was developed back in the days when i was still hooked on chatting. I chat a lot before and made lots of friends and girlfriends lol!

I see, yes constant practice could always enhance your ability to type. It really doesn't have to be the standard way. We develop our own system of typing sometimes we whatever may be comfortable for us. Yes, the keyboard sometimes affects our way of typing. I do hope you have a lot of ideas to type, then you will be on the right track on earning by sharing your ideas. Thanks for the comment.

I think this is an important tool. Fast typing and fast thinking helps You to earn money. Also I think it is an indicator of Your temperament and mental abilities to succeed in work. Those who learn faster, learn more, type waster, think faster- they also EARN more than the normal every-day people. As for me- I think it is possible for me to learn how to do things faster, but at this moment: I am not so much in to it, as I have some other things and duties to do besides learning. :)

I'm sorry if you think this is irrelevant. I thought I can never get good money in this site because I reall can not type fast. If I can't type that much then I will have lesser discussion involvement. How can you make money in this site without typing your amazing ideas?

I don't see any significance between making money and how fast you type. Anyways, as was recorded last April, I typed around 50 words per minute. And I guess that was not quite fast enough.:)

If the number of sentences and the number of answers is a requirement in earning money here then I think it is important to be able to type a little fast. Your involvement here requires answering questions. It is a good thing you can type around 50 words per minute. I do not think I can type that fast enough even.

i can type at 85 WPM to answer your last question. To answer your second question; yes. In this modern world even jobs which seemed to not require good computing skills now require you to have the ability to use a computer competently. Bassically, the faster you type, the more work you can get done :).
