    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.

    Not nerdy, definitely not hip, and not surprised.

    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.

    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!

    Exactly, me too. Also, I can name every Russian tsar, and give the dates of reign for most of them. Please don't try to tell me that's not as nerdy as being able to recite the periodic table.

    Preach it sister. IMO, knowing the name of Leon Trotsky's first wife (Aleksandra Sokolovskaia in case anyone's interested) should earn as much credit as knowing the periodic table symbol for magnesium.

    This disappoints me! I thought I'd be nerdier.

    Your nerdiness is:

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

    The question was about manganese, no?

    I've met a couple of Trotsky's descendants. One is a thoracic surgeon and one is a complete jerk (not that the two are mutually exclusive necessarily).

    Me too - and I always thought I was nerdy. I guess band geek doesn't equate nerdy for this quiz.

    Maybe if all us not nerdy but not hip people got together, we could improvie our friends score or our plans for Friday night score and move into "hip"

    But then, "hip" is probably too much work for me anyway.

    And ME! Yay! I wanted to be a Supreme Nerd, and I was worried about my disinterest in graphing calculators, but my skill in identifying photos of dead scientists was enough to let me pass the test.

    I think you have to know science to be a nerd. Your skill is a lovely dorky skill though.
