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

Modern, Cool Nerd

83 % Nerd, 74% Geek, 22% 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 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)!

My favorite question from the quiz:

Are you the type to complain that a movie either didn't follow the novel it was based upon closely enough, or complain that its costumes/music weren't appropriate to the time period of the setting?

Oh, I can even look at artwork sometimes and tell you why that flintlock musket doesn't go with that dress (happened on a piece at Deviant Art...LOL...And why that make of gun would never have had a ramrod like that. Hardcore reenactors do things like that....
