Silly nerd quiz

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. ^_^

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 about 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 nee­dles 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?

  1. 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!
