It's Official, I'm a Nerd

Hat tip to Konstantin for the quiz. It is revealed that I'm not a geek or a dork, but I am in fact a nerd.

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...

Modern, Cool Nerd

52 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 22% 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)!

I am demonstrably dork. (Demonstrably proves it.)

I'm an "Outcast Genius," and they have a picture of Bill Gates and say I'm 61%N, 61%G, 52%D--which makes me 174% something and definitely not rich nor do I have the hot attorney wife.

I'm also wondering if André 3000 is the "OutKast Genius"?

Oh well.
