You know you’re a nerd when…

…you spend the better part of a perfectly beautiful morning inside at the computer, making animated GIFs for no better purpose than to decorate your MySpace page. But, hey, aren’t they cool? I never tried making one before. It’s kind of hypnotic. Yes, I am a bit of a nerd 🙂

Okay, actually, according to this test, I am 69% nerd:

“Your Score: Pure Nerd

69 % Nerd, 13% Geek, 26% 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 tendencies 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.
