Are you a nerd?

I guess this is kind of the grad student sitting in the library on a saturday afternoon for the 10th day in a row must-do test. I saw it on Matt's blog who had seen it on a friend's blog, who found it I dont know where.

If you want to test how much of a nerd, geek or dork you are, you can find the test here.

So now I know, I'm a pure nerd, but I guess I wouldnt have needed a test to tell me that.

Here are my test results:
Pure Nerd
78 % Nerd, 8% Geek, 13% 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.

Since we were talking about it, I took the test and thought I'd share my quite striking results:

95 % Nerd, 26% Geek, 0% Dork

Man, am I ever the pure nerd!
