Meme Time: The Nerd/Geek/Dork test.

***Dave did it so I figured I should too. Results are exactly what I suspected.

Modern, Cool Nerd
60 % Nerd, 78% Geek, 39% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

Congratulations!

  1. Pure Nerd
    69 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 39% Dork

    For The Record:

    A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
    A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
    A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
    You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

    The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the “dork.” No-longer. Being smart isn’t as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

    Congratulations!

    I never thought someone would congratulate me on being a “pure nerd”.  wink

  2. 39 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 73% Dork
    You scored better than half in Geek and Dork, earning you the title of: Computer Savant.

    People confuse you with a Nerd all of the time. You aren’t some genius, like some people have said, and didn’t/don’t really like school all that much (and you especially hated some of the social aspects, like getting mocked). It’s just that you have some passions and interests that you’re extremely into/good at, and this has placed you in circles with other social outcasts, some of whom are exceptionally bright.

    The awesome thing about being where you are is that you get to hang out with an elite group (though you’d probably rather be alone, or with only the closest friends and family) and you can make quite a good career for yourself in your particular specialities. Common to this group are people who are highly into electronics/computers as that is where the money lies, today.

  3. 47 % Nerd, 43% Geek, 39% Dork

    You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

    This is not to say that you don’t have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you—we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren’t much of an outcast.

    I’d say there’s a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.

    Congratulations!

  4. Joe Normal
    30 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 8% Dork

    I don’t think I belong here. grin

    I really thought my Geekiness over furtiture (especially chair) design would make me more geekier. I mean, my AIM username is ChairGeek for crisakes.

    Definitely some hilarious questions in there though.

  5. These are more my tests-

    “The Would You Have Been a Nazi Test”
    Der Kommandant
    Achtung! You are 30% brainwashworthy, 68% antitolerant, and 61% blindly patriotic
    Opportunistic, patriotic to a fault, and not so fond of people who aren’t just like you, you are like a Nazi General. Back in Germany in the 1940’s, you would have been at the top of the asshole list. Not for Nazism, necessarily, but for your own sick, twisted values. Then, out of superior intelligence (relative to other Nazis, that is), you would’ve climbed to the top.

    Conclusion: you would have been a Nazi, and most likely would have served them well.

    “The Crazy European Dictator Test”
    Hitler
    Congratulations! You scored 43!
    You’re a very odd German man. Yeah, you’re nuts. Pure and utter insanity has plauged your life since childhood. That first great depression wasn’t your fault, you didn’t need to try and fix it! Dye your hair blonde and get a tan, you don’t fit in with the image you promote.

    “The Which Biblical Villain Are You Test”
    Cain
    You scored 80% Pride, 100% Envy, 30% Ambition, and 75% Deceitfulness!
    You are Cain, the world’s first murderer and one of the Bible’s first villains. You murdered your brother in cold blood just because God liked your brother’s offering more than He liked yours. Only an envious/cruel person could commit such a horrible act for a reason that, quite frankly, was incredibly stupid. To make matters worse, you even tried to lie to God about it afterwards. I guess you couldn’t help yourself; you like to deceive people and you are probably somewhat good at it. When God decided that your offering was unacceptable, your countenance immediately fell and you became exceeding wroth. In other words, you lost your composure and got pissed off. This is because you are a rather prideful person, and can’t stand criticism from God or anybody else. Of course, all of this could have been avoided if you just gave God a decent offering. Seeing that you are not much of a hard worker, let alone an overachiever, you figured that you’d give God a “just enough to get by” offering. Unfortunately, you failed. Maybe in the future you’ll learn from this mistake and try not to be so lazy.

  6. Outcast Genius
    65 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 65% Dork

    I guess that explains why somebody told me last week that I was wearing my shirt inside out.  How in the hell does someone notice that a ‘sport shirt’ without an embroidered logo is being worn inside out?  At least my old Titan eyeglass frames are still in good condition.

  7. Modern, Cool Nerd
    91 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 13% Dork

    You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

    Heh – if the computer says I’m cool, who am I to argue?

  8. Pure Nerd
    73 % Nerd, 47% Geek, 30% Dork

    damn, so very close to making it into the Modern, Cool group too…
