Outcast Genius
You scored 70% on nerdiness, higher than 76% of your peers.
You scored 52% on geekosity, higher than 77% of your peers.
You scored 65% on dork points, higher than 97% of your peers.

Yep, socially retarded.

Though I hate the way that at work, there are people who are better than me at doing what I do, are younger, and have much more of a social life.


It's lonely, it's painful, and I basically hate my life.

...but I've got a fancy graduate degree and engineering job!
...Not that that counts for **** when I spend every weekend alone, not by choice, but by having nowhere to go... and when I do go places, I don't know what to do and usually end up leaving feeling even worse
Sad

Well... Time to work out more, I guess.

Pure Geek - I am the sole pure geek here. seriously? I thought I was among peers, but I guess I am not nerdy enough. Wink

You scored 39% on nerdiness, higher than 20% of your peers.

You scored 57% on geekosity, higher than 82% of your peers.

You scored 22% on dork points, higher than 25% of your peers.

It's not that you're a school junkie, like the nerd, and you don't really stand out in a crowd, like the dork, you just have some interests that aren't quite mainstream. Perhaps it's anime, perhaps it's computers, perhaps it's bottlecaps, perhaps it's all of those and more. Your interests take you to events and gatherings that are filled with people you find unusual and beyond-the-pale, but you don't quite consider yourself "of that crowd." Instead, you consider yourself to be fairly normal.

Woo hoo, Pure Dork, that's me.
That's even what I picked where it asks you what you think you are.
At least there's consistency.

Hi, everyone! I'm new to ANN (wtf took me so long?) but not nerd/geek/dorkiness. Razz

You scored 65% on nerdiness, higher than 68% of your peers.
You scored 43% on geekosity, higher than 63% of your peers.
You scored 30% on dork points, higher than 47% of your peers.

Pure Nerd. I OBJECT. By the test's definitions, anyway, I agree that I'm a nerd (I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING), but I was a geek well before that. I consider myself two-thirds geek, half nerd, and a quarter dork. Anime catgrin

I got Computer savant.

You scored 39% on nerdiness, higher than 20% of your peers.
You scored 57% on geekosity, higher than 82% of your peers.
You scored 57% on dork points, higher than 93% of your peers.

Strange as I don't conisder myself as high up on computer knowledge, and I am arguably the most inteligent in the circle of outcasts I end up in. Some of it seems quite spot on though.

So does my lack of nerdyness despite fairly large geekyness and dorkdom make me like special here?

I am everything! As I expected.

I noticed that in the university my colleagues are very smart but they lack the geekness and the dorkness that I have attained.

Quote:
Tri-Lamb Material
70 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 57% 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 Dork, earning you the coveted title of: Tri-Lamb Material.

The classic, "80's" nerd, you are what most people think of when they think "nerd," largely due to 80's movies like Revenge of the Nerds and TV shows like Head of the Class.

You scored 70% on nerdiness, higher than 76% of your peers.

You scored 39% on geekosity, higher than 55% of your peers.

You scored 57% on dork points, higher than 93% of your peers.

I spend most weekends alone. But that's also because I am not very interested in social events, since I find most people boring anyway, besides my lack of social skills.

I find that my life is imperfect and could be better if I had a bit more social finesse but overall I don't hate it and I don't think one should hate his or her life simply because his or her life is not perfect or near perfect all around like a Miyazaki movie. One should accept the imperfections of his/her life and not suffer that much about these things.

Apparently I'm Joe Normal:

Nerd - 13%
Geek - 17%
Dork - 13%

I'll take it! I thought my Geek score would have been a wee bit higher.

TsunaReborn, I can have one of my spare calculus textbooks winging your way within the hour if you need to work on your nerd score.

Also you need to participate in more aspects of anime fandom to raise your geek score. But I think dorkliness is something just happens, not sure you can train it up.
