… here are the quiz results to prove it:
Your Score: Modern, Cool Nerd
86 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 26% 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 Geek, earning you the title of: 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)!
Take it yourself: THE NERD? GEEK? OR DORK? TEST
Okay, so maybe I’m not MOSTLY a geek according to their definitions. STILL managed 60%. Yeah. Just because I’m not the horrible fan-girl (fan-folks just don’t have enough of a life, IMO).
That’s it. 🙂 No thinking today.
