You know you wanna

Take the Nerd/Geek/Dork test. It'll take 5 minutes. And post what you are, gentle readers [oh, this'll be fun].

~~ Survey says Wendee is: ~~

"Pure Nerd [We needed a test to confirm this?]
60 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 13% 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 [Excellent!] 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." [Ooooo, dork=bad]
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.
