    Someone may have posted this at another time. However it is lunchtime at work and I am bored so found it and did it.

    I am not nerdy and could be slightly cool.

    Apparently I'm a high level nerd... haha. It might have something to do with being a chemist and getting the element questions right, though.

    Definitely not nerdy, you are probably cool.

    YAY! Though I really thought I'd gotten some of those Periodic Table questions right. I don't know if I'm cool or just a dumbass. Though I would think just by virtue of taking the test, I should get a nerd point. Being slightly nerdy IS cool. :drama:

    Mid-level nerd here. "Wow, it takes a lot of hard nerdy practice to reach this level." That's right! :cheer:

    I think I'm definitely pretty nerdy. I'm spending practically all of my free time making a 400-page website and not getting paid for it. :p

    Low level nerd.

    I hate how all the nerd tests disregard those of us who are history and/or literature nerds! Darn it we're nerds too!

    ^^ WORD. Usually there's at least one question on Russian lit to prove your nerd cred. There are different types of nerds. Nerds can not like calculators or math or chemistry too! :mitchell:

    So are some of you claiming nerd discrimination?

    Mid level nerd checking in here ... I don't mind being a little nerdy. As long as I am still cool ... :D

    21% scored higher (more nerdy),
    1% scored the same, and
    78% scored lower (less nerdy).

    What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

    Mid-Level Nerd. Wow, it takes a lot of hard nerdy practice to reach this level.

    This says low level nerd. But I don't do really nerdy computer things. I'm more of a math nerd. So that may have tipped the scales.

    Although I did have a minor moment of realization when it asked me what my level of education was. I was about to put some college and then I realized that I have a degree now.

    Not nerdy, but definitely not hip. (37% are less nerdy, 61% more)

    But I've always seen myself as a geek girl rather than a nerd.

    I got not nerdy but definitely not hip. I too feel discriminated against. Math was not my strong point in school. And while I am good with computers, I'm not that good. But I am a scifi nerd. And I do enjoy graphic novels.

    56; "Somewhat nerdy. I mean face it, you are nerdier than about half the test takers."

    I'm a lit nerd, too :) I guess we're called "bookworms" instead? ;)

    Good question...what is a nerd?

    I don't wear a pocket protector or velcro shoes but I consider myself "nerdish" and damn proud of it!

    High level nerd. I think I was the only ENTJ in my advanced stats class in grad school.

    oh joy quizzes to waste time on at work

    "Not nerdy, but then again maybe not all that cool either." 82% are more nerdy than I am.

    :lol: I hardly needed a quiz to tell me that

    55, somewhat nerdy. I mean face it, you are nerdier than about half the test takers.

    Though I don't see myself as a nerd.

    I thought the exact same thing. Just because I'm not a science/math/tech nerd it tells me I'm not nerdy at all. Really? Because I've got some pretty nerdy stuff going on here. It's just history/lit nerd stuff. Seriously, having four versions of The Complete Works of Shakespeare--that's not very hip.

    Low Ranking Nerd. Definitely a nerd but low on the totem pole of nerds.

    I scored the same. I must protest that this wasn't a fair test of my nerdiness. I'm a humanities/social sciences nerd not a science/computer geek nerd.:D

    And I feel I should get bonus points for having a periodic table that's in German. Wasserstoff! Stickstoff! Kalium! Schwefel! Did the audiences in Germany get to see Eisenman 2 this summer, or do they call him Iron man? (*cue the snorting "Revenge of the Nerds" type laughter*)

    Or in Russian. My 7th grade chemistry teacher claimed that Mendeleev had dreamed the actual order in the periodic table, as in sleep. Now that's ultimate nerddom to have dreams like that!
