New data from phenetic wellbeing suggests that people between 25 and 34 years old make the most typing mistakes. Whereas people between 55 and 64 years of age were found to make the least typing errors.
Typing is an essential skill that everyone needs to know in order to advance in business, especially in the digital age where most of our interactions have taken place online. Typing is important in boosting your computer skills as well as texting. Good typing skills helps you communicate easily easily without making a lot of those pesky typos.
What age group makes the most typing errors?
With the younger generation having more experience with typing on keyboards and phones as technology is developing with them, you would expect results. However, those 25- to 34-year-olds have an overall error score, suggesting that they are more competitive and less concerned with accuracy.
The data includes testing users on desktop and mobile devices to determine their typing skills. Some findings of the data include:
- People between 25 and 34 years old get the highest marks.
- People prefer to type on desktop rather than mobile devices.
- Children aged 25 to 34 make more typing mistakes on desktop than on mobile.
- Children aged 18 to 24 make more typing errors on mobile devices.
- 65+ -year-children have the worst scores on mobile devices, those under 18 years of age.
Phenatic wellbeing data came through its typing test by assessing personal typing skills. The free trial has 11 categories that include TV shows, history, art, music, cities and sports added every year.
Once you click on a category, you have 60 seconds to try and write every word that pops up on the screen. At the end you will be able to enter your name and age where you can make a place in the leader board. Surprisingly, this year people made more typing mistakes in the music category and fewer errors in the Christmas category.
