all of you who claim to be able to type all 50 in under the allotted minute, I want to see a screen shot, because I don't believe it. That's 100 wpm. I know there's only 50 states, but most of them have long names, so it comes out to be pretty close to 100 wpm.

My best is 43...I'm slowly edging in on 50. I guess I have experience from video games where typing fast is mandatory

I managed 50 in 55 seconds. But I mostly get 45-48 depending on the rate of typos.

I got 50 in 53 seconds. 100wpm isn't that hard if you practice. I used to do Mavis Beacon as a kid.

Whew - made it to 50 with 1 second to spare (typed, no voice software). And for acer9199, who wants proof: http://imgur.com/PMXhg I tend to type around 100wpm when I'm cranking, and these are words that I'm familiar with. So yeah.

California is #1, yet it is long and hard to spell? America IS dumb.

Everyone knows California because its an obvious shape, like Texas and Florida.

In addition to being the most populous state, one of the largest states, home to some of the USA's largest and most famous cities and celebrities, and probably the most well-known state possibly excepting Texas.. it's also the big one on the left side of the map which is where most people's eyes start if they are going to use the map to help them get through the quiz. Also, California is not that hard to spell at all. Maybe time to reassess who is dumb.

America is dumb because they spell a hard word? Nice. Perhaps you need to rethink what dumb means. As for this quiz, my best ever is 8 seconds remaining. I don't believe it is possible to get to 45 seconds except with the voice software. But if you can, props.

@probablyrunning I type over 130 words a minute, but it took me many attempts to get that time. It's also because I learned a song in elementary school with all the states alphabetically, and I haven't forgotten it. So I just type them as I sing it in my head, haha.

Couldn't we just put the state initials? That way if we can't type as fast, we can still attempt to get 50/50... Just saying

Can we just put in state initials? Like nikkirutman suggested, if we don't type fast enough we can still attempt to get a better score...

How can mn be so far down the list for how many people who get it? Anyone heard of Target, Duluth, twin cities, mall of America, Minnesota twins, timberwolves, wild, vikings, lynx, gophers? Think of any of those? Huh?

Hey quizmaster, sometimes the test won't recognize that I typed a word, for example I will type ohio, then continue on with arkansas, but the program won't pick up ohio and I'll have something like "ohioarkan" before i delete then arkan, then it picks up ohio

After many many tries, I finally got 40/50. I know the states in ABC order, but I found that by simply looking at the map, and typing the states as your mind sees the shape, made it easier for me. I can't get any more. I simply can't type fast enough. I still only have 4 points for the quiz. I assume you need 100% to get all 5 points. This along with the 100 wpm typing challenge will forever be blemishes on my record, because I will never be able to complete them legitimately, without stopping the timer anyway.

On all the states quizzes, people have trouble with Massachusetts. Being from there, I can type it in about 3 seconds.
Sep 13, 2013

Get a flying start. Copy Massachusetts prior to start and then paste it in immediately on go. 59.9 seconds to enter the other 49 states.

Oct 24, 2013

Got 40 on my latest go. Part of that was because the internet lags so much here that I get several before the clock even starts. I think the only way it's possible to get 100% though is to just memorize all the states in order and type it out without pausing. The way I'm doing it I still am looking at the map as the states get filled in and you just can't go fast enough that way...

My best is 34 and I'm a decent typist. The only way to get your best score on this is no typos, no brain freeze, typing as fast as you possibly can. I know I'll never get 50 in one minute.

According to the quiz statistics, 0.5% of people taking the quiz have gotten 100%. As of now, the quiz has been taken 280,598 times meaning that just over 1400 people have gotten all 50 states (or just one person 1400 times). That's way more than I expected.

Not exactly. The quiz stats only count the first time a user (or IP address) attempts the quiz.

47... almost 48... the sequence of the states makes a big difference... for example, if you follow a state ending with the letter a with a state the begins with the letter a, it's much faster (for example, louisiana then alabama)... or if you follow a state ending with a letter typed with the left hand with a state that begins with a letter on the right hand... for example, vermont then new york... you don't have to include spaces in between states with two words... and i find that typing nebraska then kansas is easier because you're ending with k-a and begining with k-a... just some of the tricks i've discovered... if you keep the same sequence each time and do it enough times, it starts becoming a matter of muscle memory vs. typing speed.

It isn't all amazing to do this. You just have to have a good memory, and type around 100 wpm. Those of you who may be secretaries and know the states should find this easy. I, personally, can't do this 100%, but 100 wpm isn't all that uncommon, and a good memory of the country isn't uncommon, either.
