How nerdy are you?

    Take the test.

    So true, in fact I think I'm more nerdy than testing would indicate, but what is your nerdiness level?

    Holy Cow! I didn't think only 8% would have scored higher.

    8% scored higher (more nerdy), and
    92% scored lower (less nerdy).

    What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

    Supreme Nerd. Apply for a professorship at MIT now!!!.

    :cry:

    "55% scored higher (more nerdy), and
    45% scored lower (less nerdy).

    What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

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

    Great.

    Me too. And I had problems with that. If the test took that into account, I'd be forgiven for knowing my IP address. :tongue:

    I'm not sure whether to be happy or sad. I mean, I always wanted to be "hip!":rolleyes:

    You lie dude you lie! No homework helper of your quality could get that score. I bet you have a telescope and a microscope at least.

    I have a different IP every time I boot up: it's dynamic, but saying that even if I did know it, it would only be to use in direct IP gaming between a few friends. Hold on I am a big nerd:smile:

    EDIT: indeed but consider the nerdiness of those taking the test?

    :blushing: Thanks (I think)
    Still, there was no lying in my test. I have neither a microscope nor a telescope. I think the fact that I know hardly anything about computers probably "helped" me!

    cristo, despite what those scores say, I know you are KING nerd :)

    I got:
    I still think I'm normal.

    :surprised Me too. I don't own a telescope or a microscope, nor do have a periodic chart hanging anywhere, and I am a very good dancer. Those graduate-level math classes must have given me a big boost on the ol' nerdometer.

    Good thing this question wasn't on the list:
    You found out about this test by
    • Reading about it on MySpace
    • Seeing some nerd take it at a coffee shop
    • Seeing some nerd take it at the library
    • Reading about it on Physics Forums
