Dare Call Me a Nerd!

First found this Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test at The Slush God Speaketh. It's been a long time suspicion of mine that I am a wee bit nerdy. Turns out, it's not so "wee bit":

Pure Nerd
52 % Nerd, 17% Geek, 30% 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 tendencies 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.


My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
You scored higher than 33% on nerdiness
You scored higher than 13% on geekosity
You scored higher than 45% on dork points
