|Nerd, geek, dork
|This reminds me of one of those stupid email forwards that people I hate send me and expect me to complete and send back to them. But this one is different: "The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test". It turns out I'm a nerd. More specifically, I'm 56% Nerd, 13% Geek, and 26% Dork. And to emphasize my nerdiness, I noticed that those percentages only add up to 95%, which means this website apparently doesn't think I'm a whole person. But then I realized that these numbers are independent of one another. A person can be 100% of all three. Wouldn't that be super.

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.
