I love the Internet


August 30, 2005

As is my habit, when I’m writerblocky, I do a quiz. I found this one via the lovely M’s LiveJournal. The results surprised me a bit…I thought I was more a geek than a nerd, with that online gaming thing I have going and all. (Sandriara’s now level 33!)

Pure Nerd
56 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 34% 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.

I was at work until 7:45 tonight and I still brought home stuff. End of the month and all.

    FYI: my test results

    Joe Normal
    43 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 21% 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.

    [Here’s my favorite part!] I’d say there’s a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.
