Are you a Nerd, a Geek, a Dork?

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia
A Geek is someone who is passionate about a particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions
If you are not where you stand, take this test. Yours truly was categorized as a "Modern, Cool Nerd" (my scores: 83% Nerd, 61% Geek, 22% Dork). Explains why every once in a while, before I say something in the middle of a conversation, my comment starts with "Nerd alert".

Fun test. Thanks for the link. I am also a modern cool nerd.
65% nerd, 52% geek (these two probably come standard with a PhD in the sciences). 4% dork.
