Ha! What fun for the middle of the night when I'm putting together some oddish Declaration in opposition to a motion.

86%

14% scored higher (more nerdy), and
86% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

High-Level Nerd. You are definitely MIT material, apply now!!!.

However, I hate to confess that I am not very nerdy at all. As a long term test taker, I just used the process of elimination...and then guess with what remains.

So, in effect, I'm not sure that the methodology here is very strong.

It is entirely probable, (not just possible), Claudia, that you're not Nerdy at all...lol

Best Wishes, Traveller

Christine

84%

High-Level Nerd. You are definitely MIT material, apply now!!!.

Not a surprise. PhD in chemistry, I work doing database programming.

Natalie

71% -- mid-level nerd

Where did I go wrong??? I am clearly not as nerdy as I thought. Actually, I am sure that I could tailor my answers and become much nerdier.

claudia

Hah. I was SURE you'd score higher than me, knowing the element song and building computers and all that. I mean, apart from being a highly educated nerdy doctor. ;-)

You must not have been honest. :-)

93%
Supreme Nerd. Apply for a professorship at MIT now!!!

No kidding. Close to a PhD in Computer Science.

I am nerdier than 25% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

25%. Yeah. I feel like I should go out and give someone a wedgie, or something.

I can't say I'm surprised. But it is a second point of observation in favor of the test's accuracy.

On the other hand, if it had been automobiles, politics, or economics, I think I would have blown it out of the water. So what's a nerd, anyway?

Natalie

Okay, I went back and changed just a couple of answers and got:

87%
High-Level Nerd. You are definitely MIT material, apply now!!!

I should've answered yes to having a biohazard warning sign in my office (I can see 3 from my desk chair, two of which are filled with medical waste). And I must've answered one of the "who is this?" questions correctly this time...

You happier? :-) Let's see what Larry gets...

Natalie

Larry got an 86%. I'm nerdier. :-)

Renee

I should have been working on my dissertation/doing stats (Bleah!)instead of taking this.

88%--I guess I should have known....

Jim Parish

I managed a 95%, which seemed shockingly high to me. (I'm neutral in the OS wars, and my favorite high school subject was history...)

Bernard Guerrero

94%. I'm not sure if I should be high-fiving somebody or weeping, though......

Carlos

65%, and probably only as high as that because I know my chemical elements.

Apparently, "nerd" means, "computer-savvy and collects scientific equipment".

  • Pediatrics in Review
    If you have access to medical papers, this is the one you have to read. This is the one that made me go "OH!". It's short and sweet, but protected.

    This short piece contains some good suggestions about dietary management of chronic non-specific diarrhea.
