Your Score: Pure Nerd
86 % Nerd, 4% 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.

Notice how the percentages do not add up to 100? I guess without taking the test, that more or less proves that I’m a Pure Nerd too. (Status confirmed by the test; I was hurt by the high percentage of dorkiness quantified by my answers, though).
I don’t think they’re supposed to Cam. 😉 (Confirming my nerd status as well.) Aww, Dorothy, you scored higher than me in the nerd column. I’m jealous.
I score 86% nerd too, but I am also 39% dork. Apparently, I am more geeky, but hardly. I really do not know what I should make of this.
Surprsingly, my results indicate I’m just a Normal Joe. Pretty balanced on all 3 categories.
I think somehow that most of us will score high in the nerd category 🙂 But I don’t think Dark Orpheus should feel bad about the normal score, she did score Buffy on the Buffy quiz after all 🙂
I’m glad I’m not alone here — I’m in the great company of a lot of nerds 🙂
