How geeky are you (test and poll)
http://www.innergeek.us/geek.html

I got 25.64576% - Total Geek

EDIT: Apparently "Poser" is an actual score, so I added it to the bottom of the poll, after discovering there was no way to move the results "down" in the list and add an option to the top.  IDK what the score for the ranking "Poser" is, however... :nervous:

Ratings are:

+ Geekish Tendencies................................≥09%
++ Geek.............................................≥15%
+++ Total Geek......................................≥25%
++++ Major Geek.....................................≥35%
+++++ Super Geek....................................≥45%
++++++ Extreme Geek.................................≥55%
+++++++ Geek God....................................≥65%
+++++++! Dysfunctional Geek.........................≥75%

Re: How geeky are you (test and poll)
 :wtf:

Geeks and Nerds are two different things, but that survey doesn't seem to make that distinction.

A nerd is smart/brainy and while many are prone to liking geeky topics thats not a given.  But being a geek and liking geeky things hardly makes you smart.  I've seen plenty of geeks who are dense as lead and nerds who could give a flip about Star Trek/D&D/whatever.

CBA to take it (see my new sig).

One wonders how scientifically rigorous a test can actually be if the only thing it tries to quantify is some subjective measurement from pop culture. This thing probably doesn't even try to disprove a null hypothesis.

I am disappoint. :blah:


This test is biased toward (or against, as you prefer) Star Trek fans. I am not a Star Trek fan.
In other words, I a little peeved that there are so many Star Trek questions, and that that hurt my score.

Frankly, I'm shocked it is that high.  I have never played an RPG (except single-player on a computer, which I did not think they were talking about most of the time).  I have the computer programming skills of a molded cereal box.  And I never got into comic books of any kind.

I guess I got a lot of bonus points for all the SF references that were scattered through there.  That and I assumed that all technicalities still count.
