Poll: Are you a Nerd, Geek, or Dork?

http://www.okcupid.com/tests/take?testid=9935030990046738815

fun online quiz. and probably relevent to these here forums…
I’m a nerd. :smiley:

Apparently, 52 % nerd. Those results are so bogus.

If you’ll excuse me, I have to go re-read “IT” by Stephen King (memorizing it for my book club).

I’m a Joe Normal… at least, that’s what it says… why… ? Beats the hell outta me

Here’s my results…

Outcast Genius
65 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 52% 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 all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don’t care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are truly important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Congratulations!
For the most part uncannily accurate…

Here’s my scores relative to other people of my gender and age. (Actually I’m 17, but 18 was the minimum age allowed.)

You scored higher than 99% on nerdiness
You scored higher than 99% on geekosity
You scored higher than 99% on dork points

Im tri-lamb material.

13 % Nerd, 4% Geek, 13% Dork

I thought I was weird…

Joe normal.

I only wanted to score high on the geek portion… Anybody else have expectations going into the test?

Well holy shit haha

Pure Nerd
82 % Nerd, 34% 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.

I mean, I am the president of the math club… hehe.
I’m fairly normal though, the quiz doesn’t go too deep. I’m no more academically motivated than your average asian kid.

Tri-Lamb Sounds about right I guess.

oh… btw… post no; 900

I also got Outcast Genius. I feel it’s pretty appropriate, except for the part about being lonely. I really don’t have a social network outside of my amazing girlfriend, (!) but that’s more than enough to keep me endlessly happy.

there’s somebody for everybody, I say

Hey, I got Outcast Genius too! Maybe, if there’s enough of us, we can print up jackets and form a club… :stuck_out_tongue:

(Now, was that irony, sarcasm, or a little of each? Hmm…)

lol

Tri-Lamb Material
69 % Nerd, 34% Geek, 52% 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 Dork, earning you the coveted title of: Tri-Lamb Material.

The classic, “80’s” nerd, you are what most people think of when they think “nerd,” largely due to 80’s movies like Revenge of the Nerds and TV shows like Head of the Class. You’re exceptionally bright and smart, and partly because of that have never quite fit in with your peers or social groups. Perhaps you’ve realized, or will someday, that it is possible to retain all of the things that you like about being brilliant and still make peace with the social cliques around you. Or maybe you won’t–it’s really not necessary. As the brothers of Lambda Lambda Lambda discovered, you’re fine just the way you are and can take pride in that. I mean, who wants to be like Ogre, right!?

Congratulations!

And I thought I was a nerd …
