For Those Who Care

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in my survey today. It consisted of one question - "Am I a nerd?" I got 2 definite yeses; 1 no, 'but you can be weird;" and 5 kindas/maybes/you can be's/"you have nerdy tendencies". Finally I took an online nerd test to see if I really am. Here are the results:

I am nerdier than 76% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

you are a nerd. just admit it.

erin said...

it's probably a good idea you polled people BEFORE you took the nerd test...

Cecilia said...

Roger that, my sister Erin, roger that. You make me smile.

Cecilia said...

My score was a 17--but they tested for science/math nerds. I'm not that kind of nerd. I'm more of a church nerd.

Yeah, I got a 41 and I KNOW I'm more of a nerd than that. If, instead of asking about naming elements, it had asked about naming all 100 senators and 50 governors, I would have been all over that. Or if it asked if I had personal closet organzing system. Or so many other things. But I'm not really much of a math/science nerd.

I think I'm just an overall nerd. Probably by any measure...

seth said...

Wow, I was a 9% - Definitely thought it would be more, given that I named my new dog Frodo.

If this was a Star Wars/Star Trek/LOTR/Sci-Fi nerd test, I wouldn't be a nerd at all. Just wanted to point that out to everyone.

yeah, it was heavily skewed towards science and technology, which I am of course not going to know OR care about. (both science and technology hate me in return) I know my nerd weaknesses, but they didn't test them, and it actually feels nice to be told I'm not a nerd for once, so i'm going with it.

haha nerd!! im only 46% nerd, but looking at everyone elses score I feel super nerdy. But seeing how I'm going to Tech, I'm really not that nerdy. at all! i'm so normal for going here! haha

Golda said...

Allie, we should just admit it - Waseloviches are nerdy. There is nothing we can do about it. It's a good thing you go to Tech so that you can at least not feel nerdy because compared to everyone there, you're cool, I'm sure. Wasn't Tech voted the 10th nerdiest university in the country??

Allie said...

haha yea i think it was!! but thats ok, i'm proud to be a little nerdy!

A direct copy and past!!!

93% scored higher (more nerdy), and
7% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

Definitely not nerdy, you are probably cool.

Golda said...

Oh Betsy, you are nerdy. Just not by this test's measures.

Betsy!!! said...

Nerd discrimination!!! Trent only scored a 34% - my husband is defiantly nerdier then 34%! Nerdy does not always have to = a graphing calculator!!! His nerdiness is one of my favorite things about him! (However,"nerd discrimination" does not apply to my score-mine will remain as is =>)

Melissa said...

I'm only a 12!!! Yay me! So, yeah, I am a nerd, but not by this test's standards. I'm find with that! Just because I had a 3.95 (or maybe it was 3.85?)in my 2 years of college didn't make me a nerd after all!
