Well, that went as well as could be expected

I took that quiz everyone's been taking. And look how nicely it turned out:

Pure Nerd
56% Nerd, 34% Geek, 21% 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, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

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.

I am

Tri-Lamb Material
86 % Nerd, 47% Geek, 52% Dork

Most people in my line of work (teaching college) are high grade nerds, but I also managed to score over 50% dork, making me eligible for the Lambda Lambda Lambda fraternity in Revenge of the Nerds. (Apparantly, though, this does not make me gay gay gay.)

In fact, I very nearly hit the loser trifecta: nerd-geek-dork.
