I'm not exceptionally bright so I would probably score on the border area next to the "d" in Nerd.

On the other hand, my obsession numbers would be off the chart. Perhaps that moves me up to the top of the yellow circle in the "Nerd" zone.

Took the test, my results:
30 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 39% Dork

"PURE GEEK"

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 Geek, earning you the title of: Pure Geek.

It's not that you're a school junkie, like the nerd, and you don't really stand out in a crowd, like the dork, you just have some interests that aren't quite mainstream. Perhaps it's anime, perhaps it's computers, perhaps it's bottlecaps, perhaps it's all of those and more. Your interests take you to events and gatherings that are filled with people you find unusual and beyond-the-pale, but you don't quite consider yourself "of that crowd." Instead, you consider yourself to be fairly normal.

Which, you are.

"Pure Nerd

52 % Nerd, 26% Geek, 26% Dork

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

Congratulations!"

[...]

This is not to say that you don't have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you--we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren't much of an outcast.

Gee, I don't know if I should be happy or sad about this result blush

Outcast Genius

52 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 57% Dork

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Congratulations!

I'm all kinds of Nerd I guess. Still, rated highly on the the Geek scale and thankfully low on the Dork Scale.

Actually (and just to be pedantic), here's the "real" definitions...

Nerd: unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person

Geek: carnival performer whose act includes biting the head off a live chicken

Dork: a whale penis

I'd say there's a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.

Practically perfect.
