I am a Nerd

There has been much debate over at Ren's as to one's geekiness, nerdiness, dorkiness. So I had to see what I am. I am a Modern, Cool Nerd. Thank you to the fine folk at okcupid for the test. In case you are curious, here are my results:

And here is the link to the test for the other gnorks out there who want to try.

Modern, Cool Nerd
60 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 21% 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)!


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

a nerd is a nerd is a nerd you big bully! heh. i haven't taken this yet but i will. and in response to your question about "bones" are not fans of david boreanz in my house. he's a nice guy i hear, my husband went to college with him, but me and angel, we never did click. loooooved the "firefly" though. if you are longing for a little buffy-esque dialogue may i suggest "veronica mars"? there is no supernatural in it but the style is familiar and the show is darn entertaining.

i'll guess i should take that test...i'm afraid to know...
