  1. Heh, I only scored a 56%! I think my very limited computer knowledge brought me down. Does this mean I get to administer wedgies to all you dorks? ;o)

    Oh, and I resent having to chose my age group as 33-50. That's quite a range!

    Did anyone take the latest version of the test? I scored a little higher on that.

  2. I dislike the question asking how many hours a day I'm on a computer "not while working." What do you mean, not while working?!

    Anyhow, these quizzes are really annoying in how they strongly propogate the stereotype of the association of intelligence and love-of-learning with a lack of a social life/social skills.

  3. Proof that this test is about as bogus as could be:

    56% ?!

    Something is very wrong …

    As for the second test, it has some negative questions in there (mostly of the follow-up variety) that can essentially be answered truthfully with both yes and no, depending on how you interpret the question. So that's not very reliable.

    It seems I'm a lightweight nerd. I suppose that's also literally true.

    I scored highest on science though, surprisingly (although still below 65%), and my second highest score was Sci-Fi, and only then computers, both at around 50%.

    Perhaps I'm more of a dork than a nerd, and not nearly as smart as I think I am …
