Are You A Geek?

Comments (13)

Via a member of my fraternity (ADP) at MIT, I discovered the geek test v.3.1 I scored 32.34714% rating me a “total geek.”  Yes – this was sent to me via a listserv.  My lack of affinity for all things Star Trek appears to have lowered my score.

    10.25641% – not sure if that’s good or bad… but being the first to post my score to the comments of an investor in the company I work for and having found this post using a piece of software that I wrote myself should count for something :-)

    Nick – that probably doubles your score!

    37.27811% / major geek here. I’m a bit concerned that I scored geekier than an MIT grad. I think in my case the history and food TV questions boosted me…

    39.44773…

    But I’m older and have had more time to nerd.

    Cost me that I’m watching the Mets at the moment. Not fair, of course, since I am watching on MLB.com.

    19%, but Kate thinks I should get extra points for taking the test while watching “Pride & Prejudice”.

  • Doug

    I got 18.54043% – Geek. I’m not that much of a geek. :P

    As a female geek I got bonus points – but still major geek – 39.9 Scored lower because I’m not a major gamer.

    Thanks – that was fun (which opinion is one reason why my score is so high)

  • Ross Carlson

    Well I guess so far I’m the king geek around here, not suprising :-)

    I got a 53.42134% so I guess I’m pretty bad, huh? I have to admit my Star Trek knowledge helped me quite a bit!

  • Amish Lalani

    I couldn’t get myself to go all the way with the test – wow that was long. I guess I admitted geekdom half way. For the rest, hmmm – you guys do have a lot of time, care to help creating some real world geeky stuff ?

  • Martha

    Wow… I’m closer to a “Geek” than just “Geek Tendencies” – what a surprise for me! Maybe it has to do with being related (by marriage only, of course) to a “Total Geek”?? That’s ok, Brad, I still love you dearly!! Makes me wonder what my dear sister, Amy, scored!

  • Steve Zweig

    Darn — only 24.65% geek. Just missed total geek by one point. I will study more…

  • Anita

    45.36489% – Super Geek
    Seriously, I knew I was kinda nerdy but a SUPER GEEK wow…
    My Geeky highlights:

    • First, So excited to take the test and post my score
    • I made a killing on all the movies, TV shows, books, sci-fi authors!
    • I’m sure my “Talk nerdy to me” t-shirt got me at least 1 full point
    • And the two or more watch question, well so it was the 80′s and two or more SWATCHES were cool! I clicked the box anyway!

    43.78%, which should rank me as major geek, but given that I referred to myself as a Tech SuperFreak at TechStars this week, that has to put me into super geek-hood right there, yeah?

Build something great with me
