I'm only 32% Nerd

So says this link:

What’s your Nerdity score?

(It’s a long test. Also, I searched to see if there had been a previous Nerd test topic on the SDMB and didn’t find one, so apologies in advance if I’ve duplicated someone else’s previous post.)

Ha! I’m 48.2% (48%, sig fig) nerd!

Here’s to hoping this thread goes as far as my purity test thread goes…

But without the felching, please :wink:

49.20%, not bad but I just sent the URL to a friend who may possibly ace it. Web programmer, devout ST :DSN watcher and amateur radio operator.

I got a 24.2% nerd rating (nerd wannabe). I’m not sure how I feel about that.

BTW, I looked but I didn’t see if the quiz has been rewritten since 1993. Some of the questions (like the ones about e-mail) might have indicated nerdiness in the past, but these days are quite common.


I’m proud.

The IQ of a group is equal to the IQ of the dumbest member divided by the number of people in the group.

33.60%, but I think this test is biased toward computer nerds rather than their brothers and sisters in the humanities. Hmmph.

36%. However, this test does need to be updated. “Omni” magazine is no longer published, and the Star Trek section left out crucial pro/anti-Janeway questions.


Well, I am a math major with a physics minor.

And now, for my next trick, I will talk in spooky half-references.

58% nerd.
40% pure.

My nerdity & purity scores were about even.

I think I’m going to get drunk now…

Thank God for that low purity score…

Pulled a solid 47%. I was also about 65% pure. I guess the solution to that would be to look at a lot more computer based porn.

Well, shut my mouth. It’s also illegal to put squirrels down your pants for the purposes of gambling.

45.6% nerd.

What did I expect, majoring in computer science and mathematics?

13.2 nerd rating.

Is this because I’m a good, burly American male who enjoys chilled beer, insider trading, and goosing waitresses? Or, as Fretful P has deduced, because the quiz is biased toward (?) computer/math/science nerds?

Anyway, the few items I was able to check were things like “Ability to Quote Poetry.” Anyone want to hear “The Pobble Who Has No Toes?”


51.8% nerd
Fairly low purity score.

Amazing, I am kind of a nerd and I still get laid and have fun. 8Þ


BTW, I scored high and still have a degree in the humanities but I have a geek job. WOOHOO!

19.40 Nerd in training. Far too many number thingies in that test.

34.80% (174/500) Nerd-wannabe

I think my purity test score was something along the lines of “impure wannabe” :wink:
