go well rounded nerd but actually has a girlfriend. i didnt feel like this test was very comprehensive though. the geekcode test is a better one. many more options.... also the output is a code block... way cooler and a "take my quiz" pic. this was still fun though.

They call me a light-weight. But here's the thing, I'm seriously considering entering everyone's nerd scores along with their post counts and membership dates, then using linear regression to analyze the statistical relationship between post-count and nerdiness in each category, as well as whether it's mediated by membership time. How is that "light-weight?"

I'd also say that putting so much stock in the results of an online quiz is quite nerdy :P

I'm not that surprised, although I did expect to have a higher science/math percentage.
Then again, that test was somewhat silly, in a fun-ish way. There was a distinct lack of actual math/science questions.

Well She/He pays for it with awkwardness, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.
