    Default Nerd, Geek, or Dork?

    Geek is the one what means "likes science and stuff" right?

    Or is that nerd? Nerd was the one who like science, but in an SJ suck up to the teacher way right?
    Napoleon Dynamite is a dork. He is not a nerd, he is not a geek. The real question you have to ask yourself, however, is: what are you? Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Yes, friends, there is a difference, and this test will ultimately, finally and conclusively answer that question in the eyes of God and man.

    Nerds are super intelligent, in a wide range of areas.
    Geeks have area of speciality that they obsess over.
    Dorks are cluless about social norms.

    Nice test. I got 52 % Nerd, 17% Geek, 21% Dork.

    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.

    I scored as modern, cool nerd.
    82% Nerd, 56% Geek, 30% Dork.

    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)!

    56 % Nerd, 56% Geek, 56% Dork
    Outcast Genius.

    Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

    Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

    52 % Nerd, 17% Geek, 39% Dork qualified me as "Pure Nerd". Can't say I feel too pleased about that...
