Not nerdy, but definitely not hip.

Yuppers, that's me.

LawDog said...

9% scored higher (more nerdy), and
91% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

Supreme Nerd. Apply for a professorship at MIT now!!!.

Dr. StrangeGun said...

I....I....

I got a 97%.

What, just because I own a graphing calculator and know all the elements on the periodic table, I'm a nerd?

:-D

I wasn't surprised with my 97%

Do you find it odd that many of your readers are nerds? 75% of your readers so far are in the 90th percentile.

I scored a measley 31-derful on the nerdiosity scale, too. "Definitely not hip." Gotta work on memorizing that IP address.

Sniff.

Oleg said...

81? No way I am nerdier than Tam!

I am nerdier than 87% of all people.

Although I didn't like some of the quesitons. But only a real nerd would complain

ExistingThing said...

79?! Come on!

...


...*whew*

95%

Though to be fair, I should have eeked out a few more percentage points by observing that though Vulcans do not smile, Romulans do, and it is impossible to tell from the picture which branch she represents. And her shirt is ugly.

treefroggy said...

89%, and I don't even have a BLOG !!! Must get one to approach 99% and nerd Nirvana. ( Not the band )

God, I'm 56 and I've heard of Nirvana. I'm also a GEEK.

Battiste said...

1% scored higher (more nerdy), and
99% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

All hail the monstrous nerd. You are by far the SUPREME NERD GOD!!!

But wouldn't that be obivous from being an enginner/researcher at a National Lab, and still in school. I think too many of the questions were geared toward chemists and computer science/ECE people. Half of that crap is grad level work or knowledge, so once again it is slanted.

gmcraff said...

95%, thus Supreme Nerd God.

Still, I was worse in the past. I probably would have nailed the 98+% mark six years ago.

Alex said...

38% scored higher (more nerdy), and
62% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

Low Ranking Nerd. Definitely a nerd but low on the totem pole of nerds.

What! I'm a professional nerd. I'm clearly nerdier than that!

Johnny said...

Humph - -

I scored 9 - - "Despises nerds." Not so. I have some friends who are definitely nerds.

I don't find this odd, the internet attracts nerds and blogging doubly so. I find it far more odd that Tam actually reads my blog...

Let's see here ...
------------------------------
11% scored higher (more nerdy), and
89% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

High-Level Nerd. You are definitely MIT material, apply now!!!.

This will come as a shock to no one.

pignock said...

HA! What a bunch a nerds!!!

I guess it could be worse - you could be like me - 49.

I score close to the middle of damn near every physical and mental metric I know of.

I guess Joe Walsh wrote that song for me: "I'm just an ordinary average guy..."

At least y'all stand out at something.

84%

Oh well..

cleanhead said...

I got a 9% but I luv nerds.

Unix-Jedi said...

98%.

Huh.
I'd expected 85-90ish.
Huh.

Joseph said...

Eh, it's not a great test of geekdom/nerdiness; this one is the best by far.

phlegmfatale said...

I was a modest 67%, barely having crossed the cusp into nerdity.

Anonymous said...

62% scored higher, 38% scored lower. Meh.

T.Stahl said...

I scored only 62, 38% higher, 62% lower.

Hmm, I thought I was nerdier.

Jordan said...

94% on the posted test, 46% on the real geek test. They need to update it to include Firefly dammit.

Matt G said...

61%

I'm not sure whether to be disappointed, relieved, or motivated to try harder.
