Nerd? Geek? or Dork?

October 3, 2005

Pure Nerd
73 % Nerd, 43% 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, 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.


The test tracked 3 variables. How you compared to other people, your age and gender:

You scored higher than 76% on nerdiness

You scored higher than 65% on geekosity

You scored higher than 37% on dork points

Thanks for the find, Ethereal Girl! This was a great distraction while I wait for my next class. 😉
