Last night I was having a talk with Jenny (a fellow LifePointer) discussing her nerdiness. She then went on to call me a nerd as well. I have never classified myself as a nerd (although I have nothing against them). I had to get to the bottom of this once and for all, so I went to the most reliable source I could…an online quiz. The results are in and you can see the results below.
Your Score: Joe Normal
30 % Nerd, 30% 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 less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.
This is not to say that you don’t have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you–we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren’t much of an outcast.
I’d say there’s a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.
