The Nerd, Geek, or Dork Test
So I took yet another online quiz from OkCupid today. I probably shouldn't be so easily amused by online quizzes, but perhaps that is simply something ultimately reflected in my results ;)
65 % Nerd, 47% Geek, 17% 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.
You scored higher than 57% on nerdiness.
You scored higher than 70% on geekosity.
You scored higher than 14% on dork points.

Well, guess I can't argue with the results really. I'm a learning fanatic, a life-long learner some would say, and for the high geek score also ... well, I'm writing about the quiz in a web blog... I guess that says it all.
