Not As Geek As I Wanna Be

I am 32.54438% geek, which highly disappoints me. I took the test last week, and didn’t take enough time to fully contemplate my answers and only got a 28%. I know you’ve already seen it, but you can take the test too. I am a huge geek. Not geek to the point of nerd, but I’m getting there. I’m such a geek that I’m embarrassed by how low my score is. My boss said I was too “cool” to rank so high on the geek test. That one knocked me back a step. I’ve never been cool. I think it’s probably because I discovered the joys of geekery after high school, so I missed out on the whole D&D, A/V Club thing. I don’t know… I swear I’m making up for lost geekTime. The last eight years working where I do, and meeting the people I have, and learning the things I’ve learned has been more fun than any other career I could have thought of back then.

Geeks are cool. Geeks are passionate. Geeks get things done, and in many ways drive the innovation that make our lives better. The advances in all avenues of human endeavor have been brought about by passionate, smart people committed to an idea. That’s what we are. Geeks are folks passionate about something, anything. You’re probably a geek too… about something. If you’re not, I feel sorry for you.

  1. -Major Geek walking.
    I don’t consider myself a Geek though. Maybe I have to question the Geekness of the poeple around me. I have to get them to take the test. But how…?

  2. Send them the url and threaten them with bodily harm if they don’t take it. Now, don’t actually go beat them or anything, but the threat should work. Or, bribe them with chocolate chip cookies. That usually works on me.

  3. 39.84%. Didn’t do most of the D&D stuff, but I did marry a geekette (she collected comic books and read Tolkien about 45 times) so that musta put me over the top. 😉

  4. 41.8146% – Major Geek here. I’m surprised how high I am considering I’ve dropped some of my geekish habits (MtG for one). Excellent site.

  5. I blame this on all that engineering school – 43.78698% – Major Geek – ok, and maybe my strange need to program my calculator and take things apart.
