I am not a dork

Some time ago, Wit and Spit accused me of being a dork. Being a naturally petty and small-minded man, I took offense. I am so not a dork, ok? Napoleon Dynamite is a dork. I am a geek, or at worst a nerd.

Obviously, however, merely insisting that I wasn't one was insufficient. I needed to prove it. To that end, I resorted to the most taxonomically accurate method of classifying people known to man.

Yes, I took an OkCupid! personality test. Here's my result.











Modern, Cool Nerd

60 % Nerd, 65% Geek, 47% 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 Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.



Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!



Congratulations!

I think I've proven my point. (QED)
 
Comments:
what? i thought it was a funny line, seriously! besides, modern day use of the term "dork" bears a higher status than geek or nerd. it used to to nerd, geek, dork, but now it's dork, nerd, geek, hence the phrase "dorky and cute" as applied to emo boys whose bones girls want to jump.
 
Heh, I know you liked it. I just thought it would be funny to refute being a dork by doing something even dorkier, which of course you already know.

Anyway, I still prefer the label of geek, because I don't really care about the social pecking order (true), but I do care that I am (or will become) a good coder (true). Girls wanting to jump my bones don't matter to me in the slightest (lie: I blinked 1024 times when I typed that).
