I joined OKCupid on a whim (mostly because it’s free). They have personality tests like most dating sites do to better match you with other members. I took one today called “The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test.” I apparently scored 96% Nerd, 61% Geek and 13% Dork, amounting to being a “Modern, Cool Nerd.” Which is good, I guess.
More interesting is the breakdown of each word/category:
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.
In true nerd form, I found this interesting and worth sharing.
