In a manual your brain is performing a function when you change gear, in the selespeed your brain is waiting for the change to take place so it feels longer.
In reality the selespeed will lift the power, operate the clutch, change gear, release the clutch and reapply the power in about a second normally. This is about as quick as most drivers could manage if really going for it.
In fast mode above 5500rpm the hole thing happens in 300 milliseconds, show me a driver who could do that without crashing the gearbox.
Also remember that down changers are matched perfectly with a blipped throttle.
As I said before it takes a while for the box to feel natural, you are not used to waiting for things to happen in a car as you are used doing them yourself which makes the changes feel slow initially. A magazine (Can't remember which one) did a test on SMG type gearboxes and although the test showed the electronic sequential boxes were much quicker than the drivers doing the test most drivers said they felt they were changing gear faster themsevles.
