Pure Nerd

Well, a friend sent me this test... to determine what percentage of Nerd/Geek/Dork you are.. turns out I am a Pure Nerd... lol Here are my results:

Pure Nerd
52 % Nerd, 13% Geek, 4% 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 tendencies 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!
So, what are you? Take the test and find out! :) http://www.okcupid.com/tests/take?testid=9935030990046738815

Hmmm, weird, definately not what I expected. Here's my results:

Joe Normal
34 % Nerd, 47% Geek, 43% Dork

My percentages are much higher than yours K, but I guess because I'm more "rounded", I'm still "Joe Normal"? Hahaha!

Well, according to the friend who sent it to me, you have to get over 50% in one of the fields to be something other than "Normal" ... SO.. You are almost (3% away) a GEEK! :) heehee

Well, I took the whole test and instead of giving me results it tried to hook me up with a dating service! I hesitantly went ahead and gave it most of the information they wanted (fake birthday - right year, wrong date) hoping that at the end of it I'd get my score. It ended up saying I'd found a bug in their site and I'd have to take the test over again.......so I guess I "broke" it! Phooey!

I did all this because I was curious as to where I fell in this modern age with my older values and mind-set. I was pleased that they at least asked for my birthday so they could possibly qualify some of my answers. Due to the fact that I'm older than the terms they use, and some of the idiotic things people do in this modern culture that are considered normal, I wondered how I was being typed.

Oh well, I guess I'll never know! I'll just go back to being my own happy self thinking more about how I think of others than how they think of me!

Well, I'm guessing that you would probably fall under "Joe Normal" just like the other two! I would also guess that Jeff would score high in all 3 categories... so I would be interested in finding out what his "title" would be. Too bad he doesn't really read my blog!

And on a side note, my uncle calls a lot people in my family "geek" just because he likes to be funny, but considering he is "pationate about a particular subject" - the Bengals - I think he is the real geek. :)
