    I took the test and while I'm somewhat nerdy, there is still a lot of room for improvement. 52% of users got a more nerdier score than myself.

    27% scored higher (more nerdy),
    1% scored the same, and
    72% scored lower (less nerdy).

    What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

    Mid-Level Nerd.

    I'm on boards on friday night taking a nerd test, I think you can add a few thousand points there

    I didn't think i was that much of a nerd, but I am good at guessing, so maybe i got those answers right.

    51% scored higher (more nerdy),
    2% scored the same, and
    47% scored lower (less nerdy).

    What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

    Somewhat nerdy. I mean face it, you are nerdier than about half the test takers.

    I'm a mid level nerd. 24% are nerdier.

    The questions based on the American education system were annoying..

    Damnit, I can't even be nerdy!

    To be honest with you Diane, I'm surprised. I mean I'm spending my Friday night reading the API documentation for a C++ library. For fun.

    44% scored higher (more nerdy),
    1% scored the same, and
    55% scored lower (less nerdy).

    Just as I suspected...


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,124 ✭✭✭✭ Charlie19


    I think as BlueWolf said taking the test on a Friday night is enough evidence.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,642 ✭✭✭ Teyla Emmagan


    I am a high level nerd and should apply to MIT immediately apparently. I must have guessed those scientists correctly then.

    14% scored higher than me.

    I think this test may be broken however.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,623 ✭✭✭ lintdrummer


    Fairly average, which is accurate.

    36% scored higher (more nerdy),
    1% scored the same, and
    63% scored lower (less nerdy).

    What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

    Low Ranking Nerd. Definitely a nerd but low on the totem pole of nerds.


    That's the worst place to be... now the cool kids won't accept me and the nerds won't take me seriously :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,750 ✭✭✭✭ bnt


    Another high-level Nerd here, albeit one too old for MIT. Yes, I have an actual RPN calculator (HP 35s) as well as software versions on my home and work computers.

    Anything over 50% is bad:)

    :D

    My niece was right all along. Low ranking nerd, how dare they.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,155 ✭✭✭ mrkiscool2


    Only 4% of people are nerdier than me apparently, and 0 % are the same. But that's not right, because another person on here was also nerdier than 96% of people. They aren't using a proper algorithm the lazy bastards!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,430 ✭✭✭ major bill


    for someone that works in IT I am happy with the ''Not Nerdy but Not hip'' result

    :cool:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,377 zenno


    Without nerds, the world would be a boring place. The next top nerd could change history forever. I'm a low ranking nerd according to the results :D but the folks up top are the masters of new things to come.

    Creativity.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,078 ✭✭✭✭ Maximus Alexander


    Creativity is not a prerequisite for nerdiness. And indeed vice-versa.

    I believe it is, in a nerdy way.
