OK, I have tried this quiz so many times and I can only get 132 (which is still level 3). I've tried multiple keyboards too. I guess I just don't have the brain/finger connection to work it. Can someone tell me the best way to get a 4 or 5 on this quiz...or give me a good cheat?

Level 84
Dec 2, 2022
wow you came up with something even less intellectual than the average speed-typing tests.

I'm not going to take this, but, my fingers are quite "twitchy" or at least used to be. I remember playing this stupid online game Dance Dance Karnak way back where you were awarded points for how many times you could press the arrow keys before the next one passed by... the game would repeatedly accuse me of cheating as apparently I was approaching the speeds you'd get just by holding down the key.

Although I did it and got better result than 67% of the others, I really don't like these. This is not a "quiz" at all but just some kind of a speed test.

Sorry guys for being a wiseass, but for me a quiz is something that requires knowledge (and memory).

Hi Jerry! I love your quizzes, including this one, but I have a critique that is worth considering. I don't think 10% of quiz takers should be getting the maximum possible score. Measuring everyone's fast-twitch typing ability creates a bell curve, and by capping the scores at a number that's easily attainable for some portion of quiz takers, you're essentially chopping off the right tail. I think the number of G's and H's should max out at 400 or 500 so that it's literally impossible to get a perfect score. That way, we can get a complete bell curve that distinguishes the top scores from each other so it isn't a hundred-way tie.
+1
Level 75
Dec 2, 2022
Good point, though recently we tweaked this quiz from hitting a single key to toggling between two keys, and the result of that is the percentage getting them all has dropped from 16% to 10% as of now. That will be because in the old version some keyboards allowed you to simply hold the letter key down and before you knew it every box was filled! I think as more people take this new version, the percentage getting 100% will head further downwards. Do remind me in a month's time and we could look at adding more "answers". In a quiz like this, "answers" just has to be written in quote marks.

Yeah that was a good edit, the quiz is better now that it prevents people from cheating. I was under the impression that editing a quiz resets all the statistics and the "% correct" starts again from scratch. Is that wrong?

I know QM alters quizzes once they're featured, so maybe it's out of your hands. I still think it would be awesome to have a bell curve so that everyone can see who's the best of the best. Considering how many people are bragging in the comments, I think it would pique everyone's interest. (This isn't for me btw, I would definitely end up on the left tail.)

Dec 4, 2022
I was trying to figure out why I was able to easily get 160 on this quiz with several seconds left, considering I'm no spring chicken, and I don't even play fast-twitch type video games. But it occurred to me that keyboard quality probably matters... and I typically use a pretty nice, kinda expensive mechanical-switch keyboard. I tried again with a regular cheap membrane desktop keyboard and also on a laptop's internal keyboard, and I even waited a while between attempts to make sure my fingers weren't fatigued, and it was definitely more difficult on an inferior keyboard.
