How hard to type?

Posted by Michael Dickens on May 26, 2008

I want to collect some solid data on how hard different things are to type. Try typing this:

stewardesses stewardesses stewardesses

If the difficulty of typing that is 10, what would the difficulty for these things be? (Higher means it’s harder, 0 means it’s effortless.)

minimum (6 row jumps, 2 same finger, 3 same hand)

ceded (4 same finger, 1 row jump)

get (2 to center, 1 same hand)

stewardesses sew sweet sweaterdresses (11 same hand, 3 to center, 2 same finger)

Leave your answers on a comment. Thanks for the help.

P.S. Are there any words that you find very hard to type?
