How nerdy are you?

  • #1
Take the test.

http://www.nerdtests.com/ft_nq.php?im

Overall, you scored as follows:

52% scored higher (more nerdy), and
48% 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.
So true, in fact I think I'm more nerdy than testing would indicate, but what is your nerdiness level?

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:

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?

Low-level nerd

: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!

: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
