NERD

I was bored this morning and took the "How Nerdy Are You" Quiz. Turns out I'm

76% scored higher (more nerdy),
2% scored the same, and
22% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

Not nerdy, but definitely not hip.

I am shocked and appalled. Turns out I'm not as nerdy as I thought (and these tests are never wrong), but it must be said that nerdiness has a mathematical/scientific bias. That is, nerdness is often equated with those disciplines. It is difficult, in such tests, to be considered a true nerd if one has a humanities background, for instance.

Come to think of it, my assessment is deadly accurate.



I am nerdier than 22% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Not nerdy, but then again maybe not all that cool either.

Hey John,

looks like you're statistically slightly less nerdy than I am :-) You're a lot cooler than I am, so it makes sense.
