It's Official...

(I'm a Nerd)


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


57 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 30% Dork

"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.


All this time I've been living as a geek, when all along I was a nerd...

What are you?

um... this test is hugely flawed. Add up your percentages and they totally don't come to 100%.

I noticed this, of course, because I'm a total Nerd. I'm 78% nerd, 30% geek and 30% dork. So apparently there is 138% of me and only 126% of you.

I'm apparently excellent Tri-Lamda material. (And because I know the reference, that seals the description, I guess!) This means I'm strongly geek, nerd AND dork (sort of the social turducken):

Compared To Other Takers
69/100 You scored 65% on nerdiness, higher than 69% of your peers.
71/100 You scored 48% on geekosity, higher than 71% of your peers.
95/100 You scored 61% on dork points, higher than 95% of your peers.

Ah... so those were scores on each individual sections of the test.

I thought they were percentages of your total geekdorknerdiness. Hee!
