Apparently I'm...

Joe Normal

47 % Nerd, 8% 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. Congratulations!


Thanks to Fragile Tender for the link.

Liz, your score doesn't add up to 100%....

I think each area is out of 100% (with scores above 50% qualifyintg you) rather than 100% overall.

Hence you could score 0% in each or even 100% in each. Though if it's the latter, I doubt we're friends ;-)

I'm worried enough by how close I come to nerd-dom...

Haha - amateur. I'm 60 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 47% Dork, which seems about right...

Tho at least they do summarise me as a "Modern, Cool Nerd".
