48 % Nerd, 17% Geek, 17% Dork

Yeah, I expected this. I only have one niche hobby and while I am somewhat intelligent, I don't put more than an average effort in my studies. I'm only a dork in a romantical sense.

Fun test, Willag Smile.

@dormcat: I would be surprised, but pleasantly so. Not everyone can have the same interests and knowledge, it would be very boring that way. I hope you haven't had to face such people often.

Looks like I'm the only dork here.

You scored 43% on nerdiness, higher than 27% of your peers.
You scored 35% on geekosity, higher than 48% of your peers.
You scored 61% on dork points, higher than 95% of your peers.

Should have known this would not go well...

^In Revenge of the Nerds, the nerds joined the Lambda Lambda Lambda fraternity (and are referred to as Tri-Lambs). The description for the "Tri-Lamb Material" refers to the movie.

I thought for sure I'd score most highly in the geek category because of how obsessed I can get with stuff I really love. But apparently the social anxiety thing is pretty strong with me too, hence the dork factor.

Pure Nerd

70 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 35% Dork


I had a feeling I was going to lean heavily towards Nerd.

This result really didn't surprise me. I'll kick anyone's butt at Trivial Pursuit. Wink

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!

13. Do you regularly read or write fan fiction?

*glares at my old FanFic.com account* Nope.

Results!
Outcast Genius-70 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 70% Dork

Quote:
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 all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.


This is fairly accurate. I usually like finding out about new things and researching topics I'm unfamiliar with.

Pure Nerd

Which I feel bad about. I can't help wondering whether scoring "Pure Nerd" just says that I have a nastily inflated opinion of my own intelligence.

If I'm here then I shouldn't have to prove myself.
