I'm a Geek

Like I needed to take a computerized test to let me know I was a geek. Of course after taking the test I actually found out to what level I have achieved geekdom.

According to the site...
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.
My score: better than half in Geek, earning you the title of: Pure Geek.

It's not that you're a school junkie, like the nerd, and you don't really stand out in a crowd, like the dork, you just have some interests that aren't quite mainstream. Perhaps it's anime, perhaps it's computers, perhaps it's bottlecaps, perhaps it's all of those and more. Your interests take you to events and gatherings that are filled with people you find unusual and beyond-the-pale, but you don't quite consider yourself "of that crowd." Instead, you consider yourself to be fairly normal.

These are my results...
34% nerdiness, 78% geekosity, 39% dork points - Pure Geek

You can try out to see how well you do as well. There's a dating site attached to the questionaire but you don't have to sign up. click here
