It’s Confirmed: I’m a Nerd

Brian  

While perusing Aaron’s new website, I came across a survey he took in 2006 and couldn’t resist. Based on previous posts, I already knew I was a nerd, and that’s not such a bad thing. This survey is by no means scientific, but it seemed pretty accurate to me.

My result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test…

Pure Nerd

70 % Nerd, 43% Geek, 13% 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.

Take the Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test and let me know your results in the comments.

    Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test …

    Joe Normal
    22 % Nerd, 22% Geek, 17% 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 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!
