The computer questions didn't list any real programming languages. And several of the options should have been multi-choice.

I'll also admit I tended to go for the higher of two options. In my defense, to get most of those would have required improvising something, which is a fairly nerdy thing to do

Not as nerdy as I'd hoped. Damn college, making me find friends and go out and have fun with them.

[*] Er, yeah...


Since that was the only option there, I think the test maker's just bitter. That fudged answer aside, here's what I got:

This is naked. Therefore, unless your computer didn't display the image, that was the only possible answer.

I blame the low scores on being really young.

I also didn't select "Spiderman" in that one question because it wasn't hyphenated. That should get extra points.
EDIT: I just realized "dumb" was included with awkward and dork!
damn it!
now if I can only find someone with ~90 in sci-fi/comics, then I'll be in business...
Also, I bet you can't find a longer title than mine!
EDIT again: I took the older version of the test, and it said I was a "High-Nerd" with a score of 87. Having a periodic table right next to me helped I think.

So far, out of the 77 scores posted here, only 7 (~9%) are higher than me. That makes me somewhat happy. And, I suppose more of a nerd. I agree that the test doesn't cover everything but it's nice, nonetheless.

Most of those questions just silly. Let me list a few that need not apply at all, and probably never will:

-Own a lightsaber
-own dvds of star trek/dr.who
-nerdiousity?
-battlestar galactica
-supernova heavy metal produced?
-physically obtain stuff like periodic chart/geek shirt

etc. Does that stuff apply to some of you?

Basically, most of those questions I was answering No or I don't know. Also, I have a romantic life, so I'm not sure how that affected my score. I don't think I would call myself a nerd. Maybe a tech geek or something. Also, I despise sci-fi for the most part. That probably had a lot to do with it. Who is Carl Sagan?

I'm just not that imaginative and too logical so it is hard for me to get into anything beyond the normal realm of possibility. That's not to say I don't enjoy *some* sci-fi but the genre in general is not of interest to me.

i.e. I enjoyed the 3rd star wars movie (the newer ones), but I wouldn't want to sit down and read a series of star wars books to learn what happened in between the 3rd and the 4th. Not to say I'm illiterate. Oh, I'll just stop while I'm still behind.

It's like I usually say: "I'm a geek, not a nerd. Nerds are good at math." (lol stereotypes.)

I did think this test was really skewed towards math and science nerds, despite the various scoring categories. Not that math and science aren't awesome, but they're not my forte. Also, it fails for making me choose between my books and my intarwebs.

Yes when I am clearly the major comic-book lover of this fora.

I have held original issues of both Action Comics #1 and the first appearane of Batman in Detective Comics. They were my girlfriends. She was going to give them to me as a birthday present (Until she cheated on me and left me for that guy). I was more broken up about not having the comics.

Because it represents who you are, but I feel mine is an inaccurate representation. I'm not shy about my love for comics, why should I be? I'm proud of it and I feel this test fails in representing my own interests.

Since when is nerd := comic book/sci-fi freak?

I'm a nerd in my own right when it comes to applying science/math to everything. There were *no* math/science questions, except for that one "Would you know what to do if you saw this: *Double integral*". The others were just retarded and obscure science history questions. I hate history.

I'm not even going to post my score, it's that retarded.
