Modern, Cool Nerd

According to The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test, I am a “Modern, cool nerd.” I am 60% Nerd, 52% Geek, 8% Dork, and I am “intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis.” The site says:

“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)!


So…now for your results.

  1. I’m a modern, cool nerd too, though I was sure I’d be a geek, being so obsessed with SF and all…so much so that I can’t really have extended conversations with normals without confusing them with an allusion to something SFnal.
