I'm Such a Nerd

Saturday, February 21, 2009
Thanks to Matt, I have discovered that I am a "Pure Nerd."

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

Pure Nerd

70 % Nerd, 30% Geek, 35% 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, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendencies associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

Congratulations!

And while I was at it, I had to find out which Buffy character I am. Surpise!

Your result for The 4-Variable Buffy Personality Test...

Willow Rosenberg

45% amorality, 64% passion, 73% spirituality, 45% selflessness


Likely you're stronger on the inside than most people would give you credit for: like Willow, you're a decent person with both passions and a spiritual side, sometimes struggling for control.

Willow is one of the most beloved characters in the Buffy universe;

Congratulations!


Now I really have to go and complete some homework...

I'm Rupert Giles! (64% amorality, 45% passion, 82% spirituality, 64% selflessness.)

YEEEEEEESSSSS!!!

(Does exactly the kind of embarrassing happy dance an "Outcast Nerd" might do before catching himself and trying to recoup dignity he never really had to start with...)

I'm also a pure nerd (I just posted it on my blog. Never was a big Buffy fan, but I always thought Willow was the coolest character, so that you're Willow is pretty cool.

Good luck with the homework!

I'm so sorry, Michelle....

But we'll like you anyway.

Hi Hugh. How come everyone's turning out to be such nerds, hmm?

mattw said...

Cause nerds are the coolest! Duh!

I took the Buffy test and it told me I was Adam. Hrm...Don't quite agree with that one.

Janiece Murphy said...

Um...yeah. Remind me not to invite you to my next party, Matt.

Adam.

Yuck.

I'm a Modern, Cool Nerd and, after taking the test twice, I was Dawn. Both times. Not right.
