I've lost my crown

That's right, Queen Nerdine has been de-throned. It has all been a grand farce...

Okay, so back in college, Caitlin started calling me "nerdine." (As in nerd.) I don't remember how this came about, but I'm sure it had something to do with my good grades and lack of study-time. (Something I was always rather proud of, myself.)

Anyway, from time to time, the nick-name resurfaces. So, when I found this nifty little online quiz, I figured it was destiny. . .

Lo and behold - I am not half as nerdy as I always thought! (Or, to turn that around, this quiz is not half as accurate as the creator thought.)

I am nerdier than 28% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!



So...how nerdy are you? (Believe it or not, I really do want to know...Caitlin - you have to report your score, since you are Dorkaroo)

Ha ha!!

I am nerdier than you!!

I am a low-rank nerd with a score of 67!

(It's all that science I took)

Joie,

Well, you did study more. Hmm..I always thought I was quite a bit nerdier. I bet that husband of yours has had an influence on you! (make him take the test)

I too am nerdier than you. 58 -- lightly nerdy.

I was a 27, not very nerdy, but definately not hip. Of course some of the answers probably didn't apply when I was in school (take notes in more than one color, like blue and black???) I was sure I would rank higher, I don't think it's very accurate!

Ugh. I wrote this big long thing and lost it. Now I'm too mad to write it again, but my nerd score was only 7.

Yesssssssssssssssssss!

Nerdine and Dorkaroo!!! LOL! Back to the good old days!

Well, I am afraid that my nerdiness appears to be all my own doing. Andy only scored 50.

And I do tend to agree that it tests for nerdiness with a very limited scope. It seems to be testing solely for knowledge or study in math, and science, and knowledge in specific fields of current technology.

I think it isn't all that accurate. There are many types of nerds; from the grammar police to the history geeks. This one only looks for a very narrow range of people.

Ugh! My post from last night never appeared.

I'm lightly nerdy...at 59. I think it's mostly from the homework questions though...I always loved homework. :-/

I got a 37-- must have been all of the tetris! So glad I'm not a nerdy doc! :) Wonder what Eric would get since he was the king of the band nerds...
