Silly nerd quiz

Posted by Cyn | Posted in Memes | Posted on 28-03-2007


Yes, I'll make a real post shortly. I needed to go away and deal with some stuff for a while.

You've got to be kidding me, though. Least nerdy of them all? How could that be!

What Be Your Nerd Type?

Your Result: Social Nerd

You're interested in things such as politics, psychology, child care, and peace. I wouldn't go so far as to call you a hippie, but some of you may be tree-huggers. You're the type of people who are interested in bettering the world. You're possible the least nerdy of them all; unless you participate in other activies that paled your nerdiness compared to your involvement in social activities. Whatever the case, we could still use more of you around. ^_^

Literature Nerd
Drama Nerd
Science/Math Nerd
Gamer/Computer Nerd
Artistic Nerd
Anime Nerd

Ah. I see. The problem here is that the quiz is all about either/or rather than the joy of yes/and! It was obviously written by a monogamous person. I'll admit that I skipped one question, which asked me which kind of nerd I consider myself to be—because there was no way for me to pick just one.

I am or have been everything listed but an Anime nerd, and there's no danger of me ever becoming that. In fact, this may be the only time you ever encounter Anime in my blog. I could add Religion Nerd as well as other categories, but as the author noted, there's no way to include everything.

The author couldn't have been a computer geek. There were no computer-related questions other than those aout the amount of time spent using a computer or online each day, or about video games. None of that has anything to do with being a computer geek. There are plenty of people who spend many hours using computers without knowing anything about what's going on under the surface.

I imagine this person may fancy himself a gamer, but he apparently spends most of his time in front of a screen rather than doing any actual roleplaying. Why else would he concatenate the gaming and computing categories?

He also seems to be unaware that there are many kinds of artistic pursuits that involve needle and fibers, but don't involve sewing costumes, knitting or crocheting. Those questions were just odd. I suppose he's run into lots of costumers, and hardly anyone escapes the flurry of attention on knitting and crocheting these days?

Hooray, I got artis­tic nerd (that’s a hooray right?)

Bet­ter than math

as an ani­mé nerd, I take offense at your joy at not being one of us.…

I could get offend­ed at the fact that you didn’t both­er to read what I actu­al­ly wrote – but life is too short to get eas­i­ly offend­ed. Seri­ous­ly, it’s just a sil­ly quiz, as I said in the sub­ject line!
