OKCupid! The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test

OKCupid! The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test

Yes, these tests are usually lame. This one was pretty on the level though. This came up on Modern Vespa, in a thread on the link between nerds and scooters. I had to keep from laughing as thoughts of how other people I know would answer.

OK, so maybe the Dragon is biased, because he scored:

Modern, Cool Nerd
95 % Nerd, 73% Geek, 47% 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)!

But you knew that already didn't you!
