According to Lak611's test:
Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test ...
52 % Nerd, 26% 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, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.
The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

I've never read a book in my life, but I've never failed an academic test either.
I love gadgets and smartphones, but also enjoy partying and going out drinking w/ friends. I like all sports and will watch all.
I'm no where near shy (anymore... I'm told when I was a kid, I was extremely shy. lol).
I'm a flirt. My circle of "friends" is very small. Used to be a lot large circle of friends.
So I guess I'd call myself a nerd.

I don't know how many folks have seen the TV show The IT Crowd. It's one of my favorites.
Here's another quiz. who are you, Moss, Roy or Jen? THE IT CROWD | Quizfarm.com
My result: You Scored as Royyou are Roy!!! you're an I.T geek. you work in the basement at Reynholm Industries + the people upstairs have no idea who you are although you long to be accepted by them. you know more about women + interacting with people than your best friend Moss does though. you live on junk food and appear to be eating most of the time. you read a lot of comics + wear computer related t-shirts that probably only other I.T men would understand. "hello I.T, have you tried turning it off and on again?"
Roy 80% Moss 30% Jen 0%

Yes I watched that episode yesterday, so hilarious the way events unfolded for the worse each time after they went toilet.
I liked the one where there was that fire in the office, Moss and Roy tired to hide it behind that screen, and Denholm thought it was a screensaver. So funny how convinced he was about it too.
