And I listened to The Sex Pistols in high school and The Clash in college. I could have become a punk rocker when I had the chance! Or at least a "new waver"! I listened to Devo and Talking Heads too! (And Talking Heads weren't cool in the late 70s/early 80s!)
But I'm afraid that I'm not a punk rocker, or a new waver - which is probably a good thing when you're in your mid-40's! But I'm not even a nerd or geek now either. Despite the fact that one of my co-workers - who I will call The Crazy Smart Alec Co-Worker - says she uses "dork" as a "term of endearment", I don't find it very endearing or desirable. Unfortunately, it does seem applicable - as the following results show....
Oh, this identity crisis gets worse and worse.
You're an Official DORK
Ding ding ding! We have a winner! You're a dork. You knew that. You know a lot of random stuff actually...You probably know what a male duck is called, and no, it's not a duck. I bet you tell "I'm a big dork" stories on a fairly regular basis. You're a member of Alpha Beta Needa Data. But what makes you cool (in your own sort of way) anyway is that you take all of this with a sense of humor. You know full well there's nothing wrong with being a little strange; you wouldn't have it any other way. That's pretty respectable. Even if your socks don't really match, if you look at 'em up close. But who's going to be looking that close at your socks anyway, right? So take pride in your dorkiness. You rock.
2.Secure Dork- You could care less about what people think of you. For the most part people are cool with you except for assholes.
The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test
60 % Nerd, 30% Geek, 56% 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 and Dork, earning you the coveted title of: Tri-Lamb Material.
The classic, "80's" nerd, you are what most people think of when they think "nerd," largely due to 80's movies like Revenge of the Nerds and TV shows like Head of the Class. You're exceptionally bright and smart, and partly because of that have never quite fit in with your peers or social groups. Perhaps you've realized, or will someday, that it is possible to retain all of the things that you like about being brilliant and still make peace with the social cliques around you. Or maybe you won't--it's really not necessary. As the brothers of Lambda Lambda Lambda discovered, you're fine just the way you are and can take pride in that. I mean, who wants to be like Ogre, right!?
How much of a dork are you?
- Sort of dorky. You probably are.
Again, nothing to compare you to other scores! Sheesh!
Are you a dork? - You have 4 from 10 questions correct. Not that bad! But watch it you're getting up there. You are almost at the borderline: Citizenship??? Dork.
Just how dorky are you? - With your 50 % you are: You are not only a dork, you're the president of the National Dork Society (NDS)! That's a good thing! You're fun, and simple things amuse you. You are unique! Get out the cheese and celebrate! 22 % from 9007 test takers had this profile!
And this test shows the other possible results! Yay!
