Who’s procrastinating?

14 Sep
Tri-Lamb Material
78 % Nerd, 34% Geek, 52% Dork
For The Record:

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 Dork, earning you the coveted title of: Tri-Lamb Material.

The classic, “80’s” nerd, you are what most people think of when they
think “nerd,” largely due to 80’s movies like Revenge of the Nerds and
TV shows like Head of the Class. You’re exceptionally bright and smart,
and partly because of that have never quite fit in with your peers or
social groups. Perhaps you’re realized, or will someday, that it is
possible to retain all of the things that you like about being
brilliant and still make peace with the social cliques around you. Or
maybe you won’t–it’s really not necessary. As the brothers of Lambda
Lambda Lambda discovered, you’re fine just the way you are and can take
pride in that. I mean, who wants to be like Ogre, right!?

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

I feel I should have scored higher on geek, not higher than nerd mind you, but I know way too much about Star Trek and its subsidiaries to only be at 34%.

    I was “Pure Nerd,” though didn’t have particularly high scores: 56% nerd, 39% geek, and 17% dork. Interesting that I am scoring higher on the geekiness than you… I guess my secret reading of the occasional comic book somehow trumps your fascination with Tolkein-inspired death metal.

    Their geek calibration is obviously poorly tuned.

    I also don’t think that you’re that dorky. Anti-social and misanthropic, perhaps, but far too capable of faking the social graces funk to really be considered dorky.
