It's Official

I've always suspected, but now I know I'm a nerd.


I am nerdier than 75% of all people. Are you a nerd? Click here to find out!

66. I think the test is skewed towards math/science nerds, tho'. You can be plenty nerdy in the liberal arts!

Oh, I think it's definitely skewed toward computer geeks. I'm not one but I think some is rubbing off as I work with a lot of them!

Heh-heh-heh. What took you so long? I spotted that eons ago. Welcome to nerdom. We rule the world!

I DO have a favorite calculator and knew all the science and computer questions, but I'm a socialized nerd.

MountainLaurel said...

Christene, I'd count you as a winner! You are capable of superpowers if your score is that high.

Kit, LOL! I knew I was a nerd, but I thought I had been covering it pretty well. Guess not.

SH, I'm just going to let that "socialized" comment lie. It would be WAAAAY too easy to snark. ;-)

Come on Laurel, Lemme have it. Unlike some others, I invite and welcome snarkitude.

Remember you asked.....

So you are socialized into nerddom? I'm not sure that's a great accomplishment. ;-) Remember that socialization is always culture-specific. You must score very highly on pizza and Mountain Dew consumption. And what was your highest D&D level? ;-)

Oh joy! I just saw this.

Even our nerditude is culture specific in many ways. Or perhaps it's my graduate work in Cultural Studies. . . But what I meant was that I am a nerd who has become socially capable and even comfortable with people and different places. Maybe that means my Nerd Card has been revoked.

They used to say that 68000 programmers sat around eating pizza and drinking coke while 8088 programmer sat at desks in white shirts, skinny ties and pocket protectors.
I must admit that I was more of a 680000 guy, but because of demanding corporate functions often sat at a desk in a coat and tie. . . but always stylish sans pocket protector.
"D&D level?"
drugs and deviance? dorkiness and disgust?

D&D=Dungeons and Dragons. Yes, I'm being stereotypical.

I've worked with a lot of programmers who were more like the 68000 than the 8088 programmers. So that's where my stereotype comes from. Like you, Sagacious Hillbilly, I can be comfortable in both groups. I think that may be a residual of my Appalachian upbringing. We're all people.
