I am:
1)Joe Normal
43 % Nerd, 43% Geek, 21% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

This is not to say that you don't have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you--we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren't much of an outcast.

I'd say there's a fair chance someone asked you to take this test. In any event, fairly normal.

2)Xander Harris
45% amorality, 72% passion, 54% spirituality, 63% selflessness

Xander. Loyal, brave, true and passionate. Perhaps the best friend a person could have, always willing to jump into the frey to help out his buddies.

Also, one of the most popular characters in the Buffy universe.

Congratulations!

Outcast Genius
60 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 52% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in all three, earning you the title of: Outcast Genius.

Outcast geniuses usually are bright enough to understand what society wants of them, and they just don't care! They are highly intelligent and passionate about the things they know are *truly* important in the world. Typically, this does not include sports, cars or make-up, but it can on occassion (and if it does then they know more than all of their friends combined in that subject).

Outcast geniuses can be very lonely, due to their being outcast from most normal groups and too smart for the room among many other types of dorks and geeks, but they can also be the types to eventually rule the world, ala Bill Gates, the prototypical Outcast Genius.

Congratulations!

I didn't watch Buffy so I'm not taking that test.

I don't believe you Dara. Some of these questions just screamed your name. :-p And yes, I am Pure Nerd.

Debby and Justin -- and anyone else that has challenged my results:
I think the test is accurate -- I have elements of all three -- especially Nerd and Dork -- but I'm not strongly any of them. Thus the pretty even split.
And those who know me know that my ADD keeps me from getting too obsessed with any one thing. So while I have some TV shows on DVD, and a Scully and Mulder barbie set, I can't quote entire movies or episodes of anything off the top of my head, I have never been to a fan convention of any type, and I don't have enough time to constatnly walk around with my nose in a book.

Dara, you're way more obsessed with U2 and Bon Jovi than I am about any band, and how many tv-show seasons do you have on DVD?

Dara said...

Justin, you're obsessed with sports and American Idol. And, you are way more into gadgets than I am -- ipod, PSP, etc. I didn't even know what the PSP looked like until I saw yours.

Heck, I just got a dvr this past Christmanukah.

Speaking of TV on DVD, Robot Chicken's 1st season was just released, and they're airing new episodes starting in April.

This is an awesome test. Just a couple of weeks ago, Anna and I were talking about a couple of self-proclaimed nerds on The Amazing Race, and agreed that they did not really appear to be smart enough to be nerds, but that they were just socially awkward. Dork didn't occur to us, so we were thinking that they were geeks, but now I'm sure that they're dorks. I am, not suprisingly, a "pure nerd" (65 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 39% Dork)
