Where's the Gork* Section?

According to the THE NERD? GEEK? OR DORK? TEST, I'm a...
Modern, Cool Nerd
60 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 39% Dork

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

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)!

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.

  • 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."

    My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
    free online datingfree online dating
    You scored higher than 58% on nerdiness
    free online datingfree online dating
    You scored higher than 81% on geekosity
    free online datingfree online dating
    You scored higher than 70% on dork points

    * Geek + Dork = Gork (See also previous posts here & here).

    Haha, there's something terribly UNmodern and UNcool about being labelled modern and cool! And look at it this way, you are PURE, whereas I am a mongrel, a pariah!
