Two Silly Quizzes

Gacked from Betsy at Fusenumber8, because I’m too swamped for real content today. (I was a-scared of the Dickens test.)

Numero 2 behind the cut:


Your Score: Modern, Cool Nerd


82 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 30% 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 Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

  1. I was a “Modern, Cool Nerd,” too.
    The test is clearly deeply flawed; this Saturday, in 80 degree heat, I am going to don wool, linen, and leather to impersonate a highland woman in the 1630s to crowds of indifferent onlookers.
    Ancient. Hot. Dork.
