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

Modern, Cool Nerd

87 % Nerd, 70% Geek, 13% 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)!



Congratulations!

Awesome! I'm really surprised about the large percentage for both nerd and geek. Interesting quiz though.

Yeah, I do geeky things in a nerdy fashion...or is that nerdy things in a geeky fashion...LOL...

You should see my collection of books I've put together on Japanese culture, folkways and history just so I could write my fanfics.

And we're not even going to talk about my obsession with the history and doing of fiber arts...LOL. Hey, I know how to weave in the neolithic manner....and how they spun linen in ancient Egypt and why the way they wove it was different than in ancient Greece...

Geek. Yep.

That's actually pretty awesome! I don't know much about ancient history but I know plenty enough about the 1700s-1940s.

It's interesting to know though things that most people don't even know exist! I think you've posted a picture of your bookshelf or something with some of your books you used for fanfiction. I usually just look it up on the internet. (I love Google! ^_^)

I start with google, but there's usually not enough info for the type of questions I have, which get into really deep issues, like crop rotation practices in 16th century Japan, how was village life organized, what type of plants were used for medicine when you had the flu, what type of epidemics, famines, floods happened in the 1550s and where in Japan, and how did they make miso and tofu back in those days? What were the favorite ways of starting a fire from scratch? What type of plants came up first in the spring, and which were edible? What was a typical size of a rice paddy field, and how much rice could it yield? All sorts of weird questions like that...

I usually go from google to Amazon. There are plenty of books I won't buy, and wish I could, but I still have managed to get a pretty useful library. (I don't even want to think of how much I've spent. I'm about to order two more books, one a classic collection of folk tales I missed out somehow, and another on things with a quasi-magical religious implication...I am in the middle of a social history book of a village that managed somehow to keep good records how it did things during the sengoku jidai, and just finished a book on traditional Japanese beauty aids that avoid modern ingredients, which I will be working into the stories as I go along.

This is why I show up as both nerd and geek. LOL. I'm going to become an expert on the life of the peasantry in 16th century Japan so I can write fanfiction that satisfies me! LOL.
