This Does Not Suprise Me

The fact that I've had the conversation about the definition of nerd, geek and dork (twice) made me jump on this quiz when I saw it posted on a couple of blogs. (Hi, Liz and Miss P)

Your Score: Pure Geek

47 % Nerd, 73% Geek, 43% 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 Geek, earning you the title of: Pure Geek.

It's not that you're a school junkie, like the nerd, and you don't really stand out in a crowd, like the dork, you just have some interests that aren't quite mainstream. Perhaps it's anime, perhaps it's computers, perhaps it's bottlecaps, perhaps it's all of those and more. Your interests take you to events and gatherings that are filled with people you find unusual and beyond-the-pale, but you don't quite consider yourself "of that crowd." Instead, you consider yourself to be fairly normal.

Which, you are.

Congratulations! You're the one on the RIGHT!

That was a fun quiz. I'm a nerd! Now, I think it only fair you share with the world your "interests that aren't quite mainstream."

"Interests that aren't quite mainstream" include YA literature, a few historical topics, and an unhealthy obsession with a few television shows.
