It is a 60 question test to determine whether you are a nerd, geek, or dork. Pretty interesting, though a bit too long.


My results:
Joe Normal
26 % Nerd, 8% Geek, 8% 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.

    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.

    Congratulations!

    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.

    It almost makes sense that some of the people with low nerd scores are making fun of those with higher scores ;) ;D

    You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: <B>Outcast Genius</B>.
    Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).
    Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.
    Congratulations!

    My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

    You scored higher than 99% on nerdiness

    You scored higher than 99% on geekosity

    You scored higher than 99% on dork points
    I think this test is biased against old people. :-/

    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 Geek and Dork, earning you the title of: Computer Savant.

    People confuse you with a Nerd all of the time. You aren't some genius, like some people have said, and didn't/don't really like school all that much (and you especially hated some of the social aspects, like getting mocked). It's just that you have some passions and interests that you're extremely into/good at, and this has placed you in circles with other social outcasts, some of whom are exceptionally bright.

    The awesome thing about being where you are is that you get to hang out with an elite group (though you'd probably rather be alone, or with only the closest friends and family) and you can make quite a good career for yourself in your particular specialities. Common to this group are people who are highly into electronics/computers as that is where the money lies, today.

    Congratulations!

    Could have mentioned that you have to sign up at the end else it wont give you your results :banghead: (did it all then refused to sign up, I don't think I would have got a very nerdy score on account of the fact that I don't read books (which lots of the first section seemed to be based around)).

    First it asked for a DOB then a handle to use and your sex and I thought that was it. You go on to the next bit and it starts asking for loads of other things... meh, probably clicked the wrong button or something...
